The Heritage Centre has been created to provide visitors with an exciting introduction to St George’s Hall and its place in Liverpool’s history.
Key features of the Heritage Centre include:
- The original south entrance hall on St John's Lane, designed by Harvey Lonsdale Elmes, but never before used by the public.
- Opportunities to visit the cells used by prisoners awaiting trial.
- The newly refurbished Criminal Court and Judge’s Robing Room.
- Glimpses of the unique ventilation system designed by Dr David Boswell Reid.
- A learning suite for school parties. See our Education and community page for more information.
- A Community Room entitled ‘World Heritage-Your Heritage’ where local groups can exhibit work.
- A new accessible viewing gallery for the Great Hall.
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.
