    Fab pic

    I wouldn't fancy going up there in the cold best to go on a nice clear summer day. - but then you might not get the fab night view as it doesn't go dark 'til late - probably after the tower tour has finished.

    My cousin took that one, I took a few but was hiding in the corner .

    I wanna do it again to see if it was the height that I didn't like. I'm sure it was coz of the wind, felt like I was gonna be carried off.

    The fella that works there said it was closed on bonfire night so they could watch the fireworks from the best view in the city. Problem was, the smoke rose and they were left looking at the smog over the city

    From earlier this week.... And was very lucky to have an extremely clear day!

    First one views over Birkenhead, The Priory and over to the Mountains of Wales.

    The second views include Blackpool Tower, the Big one, and in the distance you can make out the hills of the Lakes.

    The third is a Mersey Panoramic.

    Across the river, if viewed large you`ll just make out the wind farm in the bay

    Towards Tranmere oil jetty

    Notice all the churches on Princes Rd. top right corner

    Default Cathedral Tower: Last Few Chances This Year

    Only a few more opportunities to visit the Anglican Cathedral Tower this year - finishes October 28th. Tickets 5 from the Cathedral. Thursday evenings only. Last visit half an hour before sunset
    (6.30-ish at the moment)

    These were all taken on July 26th soon after the Thursday evening openings began. I only have a fairly basic compact camera, but was lucky to be there on an evening when there was a quite spectacular sunset.

    It worth the climb up not just for the views but for the vertigo of looking down on the Liverpool Tardis
