Built in 1836, Liverpool Lime Street opened at a time of rapid growth for the railway in Britain.  It had its first expansion in 1849, a large château-like building which now fronts the station.

Liverpool, one of the most vibrant and film-friendly cities in the UK, is supported admirably by this beautiful station which is supported by two half-barrel roofs, located slap bang in the middle in the centre of the city.  The station is both at once grandiose and yet intimate as the main concourse is and all services are within easy reach.

The station, currently under redevelopment and will re-open fully to rail services at the end of July when it will have 11 platforms, up from 9.
