5 Unusual Event Spaces in Liverpool

The largest cathedral in Britain? We’ve got it. A church with no roof? Of course.

As well as some of the world’s best hotels and state of the art conference centres, Liverpool is home to some of the most unusual event spaces in the UK. If you want to wow your delegates at your next event, why not consider one of these?

Liverpool Cathedral

Imagine holding your event in the jaw dropping surroundings of the largest cathedral in Britain (5th largest in the world)! Described by Sir John Betjeman as “one of the great buildings of the world”, Liverpool Cathedral could be the stunning backdrop to your awards evening or gala dinner.

Mersey Ferries

The Mersey Ferries have been taking people across the River Mersey since the 12th century, and they’re just as magical today!

You can hire the Mersey Ferry to hold your event, offering delegates spectacular views of Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage waterfront.

With capacity for up to 300 people and a range of catering options available, the possibilities are endless- just imagine your delegates photos!

Bombed Out Church (St Luke’s)

Standing on the corner of Berry Street and Leece Street, the Bombed Out Church looks directly down Bold Street in the city centre. Built between 1811 and 1832, it was badly damaged during the Liverpool Blitz in 1941 – leaving it roofless!

The Bombed Out Church can be hired for a number of different events, from drink receptions to social gatherings – it really does have the wow factor!

Sefton Park Palm House

A Grade II* listed building situated within Liverpool’s Sefton Park, the Palm House opened in 1896.

Inside, plants from across the world, adorn the glass house and a beautifully crafted staircase catches the eye. The plants are grown and looked after by Colin, who has been a botanic gardener at the Palm House for 25 years.

The venue can be hired for a number of different events and looks especially great for award evenings!

Western Approaches

With space for up to 120 people, Western Approaches is a secret WWII bunker in the heart of Liverpool City Centre!

The venue was a bunker where the military forces all worked together to plot and plan strategies during World War II to protect the Atlantic Ocean. The bunker has walls which are 7ft deep and was kept completely secret during the war and even for a long time after the war, until it was discovered whilst a car park was being built in the 1990s.

Now the venue is a museum and looks exactly as it would have done during the war with original furniture, signage, phones and communication equipment!
