Heritage Centre

Our Heritage Centre has been created to provide visitors with an exciting introduction to St George’s Hall and its place in Liverpool’s history.

The Heritage Centre is open every day 10am-5pm including Bank Holidays except Christmas Day and New Year's Day. See our Your Visit section for more details.

Key features of the Heritage Centre include:

  • The original south entrance hall on St George's Place, designed by Harvey Lonsdale Elmes, but never before used by the public.
  • Opportunities to visit the cells used by prisoners awaiting trial.
  • The Criminal Court and Judge’s Robing Room.
  • Glimpses of the unique ventilation system designed by Dr David Boswell Reid.
  • An accessible viewing gallery for the Great Hall.
  • Exhibitions space opening up in never seen before areas of the Hall including the basements.
  • Behind the scenes tours.

Throughout the Heritage Centre, imaginative exhibitions, reconstructions and hands-on activities bring the story of St George’s Hall alive.

Visitors can follow in the steps of the unfortunate prisoners, from prison cell to the dock. Interactive hand-held units provide a range of themed tours.
