I’m lucky that here in Liverpool is a good example of a Classical Building. Prince Charles is reported as saying St George’s Hall is one of his favourite buildings when he reopened it in 2007 after a £23 million refurbishment.
If you ever have the chance to visit it don’t miss the opportunity especially if you can visit when the Minton floor is uncovered. It is so delicate that it is usually covered with a wooden floor and even when it is uncovered you can’t walk on it. You can see here how it has worn away in parts that have been continually walked on over 150 years of use.
While doing some pre visit research online I found this great site with extracts from the Liverpool Mercury in 1854 I’ve printed the pages out to put in my learning log.
Write a report on what you observed about the architecture during your visit.
