The city of Liverpool, located on the Liverpool Bay of the Irish Sea, has been described as having "the most splendid setting of any English city" . Liverpool; is roughly 180 miles to the north west of London and is built across a ridge of sandstone hills which are around 230 feet above sea level at their highest point at Everton Hill. This also marks the southern point of the West Lancashire Plain. Separating Liverpool from the Wirral Peninsular is the estuary of the River Mersey which flows from Stockport in Greater Manchester to Liverpool Bay.
Liverpool was a pioneer city in many fields. In the arts it was home to the first lending library, athenaeum society, arts centre and public art conservation centre. The city is also home to the oldest surviving classical orchestra and the oldest surviving repertory theatre, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the Liverpool Playhouse respectively.
Liverpool's iconic catholic cathedral, the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, was completed in 1967 and is the seat of the Archbishop of Liverpool and is a Grade II* Listed building. The cathedral is sometimes referred to as "Paddy's Wigwam" or the "Mersey Funnel" by local people.
