The Anonymous Widower

Liverpool Lime Street Station And St. George’s Hall

When you arrive in a town or city by train, I believe that you should be welcomed by a wide spacious area, where you can get your bearings and meet friends.

I took these pictures outside Liverpool Lime Street station.


  1. The three main buildings on the pictures, are one Grade I and two Grade II Listed buildings.
  2. St. George’s Hall is a Grade I neoclassical building.
  3. A liver bird told me, that the magnificent floor with its 30,000 Minton tiles, will be open this summer.
  4. Lime Street station is now one of the best terminal stations in the world, both in terms of architecture and operation.
  5. The hotel on the left of the station, is now a Radisson Red hotel, after a very chequered history during the last ninety years.
  6. Not many stations welcome you to a city like Liverpool does.

In London, King’s Cross and Liverpool Street make an effort, but some stations like Paddington just deliver you to crowded, anonymous, dingy streets.
