St George's Hall is widely regarded as one of the finest neo-classical buildings in the world and is a Grade I listed building. St George's Hall opened its doors to the public in 1854, over 10 years after it was first commissioned.
The architect responsible for the bulk of the design was Harvey Lonsdale Elmes.
The Hall was built to provide a venue for the triennial music festivals. On top of this the courts were added as Elmes had been commissioned to design both buildings, and due to funding 'issues' they were combined.
St George's Hall stands 169ft long and 74ft wide with a tunnel vaulted ceiling — the largest of its kind in Europe. The ceiling is supported on massive red granite columns, with figures portraying qualities Victorian Liverpool aspired to — art, science, fortitude and justice.
Behind the gold leaf and porticoes, the Hall has one of the greatest brick arches in the world and houses a priceless mosaic floor of 30,000 tiles. When the unique Minton tiled floor was uncovered to mark the Hall's centenary in 1954, more than 100,000 people queued to see it.
The Hall is also home to a concert organ complete with 7,000 pipes, second only in size to the organ in the Albert Hall.
The Concert Hall is the largest area, rectangular in shape, and occupies the centre of the building with an organ on its north wall. To the north of the Concert Hall is the Civil Court and beyond this is the elliptical Small Concert Room. To the south of the Concert Hall are the Crown Court and the Grand Jury Room. Smaller court rooms are on the periphery of the larger courts. The floor below consists of a cavernous basement with cells for prisoners along the west wall.
