Liverpool Cathedral, also known as AnglicanCathedral. It is the largest church in the United Kingdom, also known as the Catherdral Church of Chris in Liverpool. It is also the fifth largest cathedral in the world, and its architectural style blends traditional Gothic and modern monumental styles. The design of the single tower was an innovation at the time. The tower was 101 meters high and built the world's third largest clock. The exterior is not very eye-catching, but the interior space is extremely high and ethereal. And you can enter for free and listen to the hymns of the choir. It is worth mentioning that this magnificent and solemn religious building is from the hands of a 22-year-old youth. In 1902, the 22-year-old Giles Gilbert Scott selected the design competition at Liverpool Cathedral, which was a bit controversial, but Scott's mastery of Gothic style and professional family background (George Gilbert Scott Junior) Sir and grandfather Sir George Gilbert Scott are both very famous architects in British history. Sir Grandpa Scott designed London's St. Pancras Station. The Albert Memorial, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the chapel at St. John's College of Cambridge, the main building of the University of Glasgow, etc., and other British landmarks involved in the design are numerous. Let the project run aground. In 1904 King Edward laid the cornerstone and the church began construction. In 1924, the first part of the Church and the East Hall were completed. In 1941, the second stage tower was initially completed and put into use. In World War II, the church miraculously survived the death. However, due to the downturn in the national economy and the impact of the world war, it was not until 1978, after a full 76 years, the main part of the church was officially completed, and Elizabeth II attended the completion ceremony. Unfortunately, Scott died in 1960. He didn't wait until the day when his work was perfectly presented, but Scott not only left this beautiful church, but London's iconic red telephone booth was also from his hand.

For the city of Liverpool, I only know football and the Beatles. But when I walked into the city, I found that the surprises that brought me did not stop there. Liverpool is like the episode of the rise and fall of Great Britain. Nowadays, nearly 3,000 buildings in the city were built in the 18th century, and the heavy sense of history can be felt everywhere in the streets. There are two arguments about Liverpool's name. One is that Liverpool was called "Liuerpul" in the 12th century, meaning a muddy pond or creek; the other is from "elverpool". Name, there used to be a lot of squid in the Mersey River (the eel of squid is English). It is generally believed that the city of Liverpool originated in August 1207, when King John made a command to establish Liverpool, but until the mid-16th century, Liverpool was only a small town with a population of only 500. It was not until the British Civil War in the 1650s that Liverpools trade and population began to grow slowly. In 1699, Liverpool became a parish. In the same year, the first slave ship of the Liverpool merchants sailed in Africa. Entering the eighteenth century, trade with the West Indies exceeded trade with Ireland and Europe, and Liverpool began to grow. In 1715 Liverpool built the first dock in the UK, and the profits of the slave trade helped the city to prosper quickly. By the end of the 18th century, Liverpool controlled 41% of Europe and 80% of the British slave trade. It is also one of the main areas of the British Industrial Revolution. By the early nineteenth century, 40% of the world trade had passed through the Liverpool dock. In 1830, the world's first passenger railway was opened between Liverpool and Manchester. Liverpool's population continues to grow rapidly and eventually becomes the second largest city in the UK.
