Inside Liverpool's Cunard Building


Liverpool's waterfront is well known for the Liver Building which is grade one listed. But next to it is the Cunard Building which is grade two - and now there is a campaign to get it the same status as its neighbour.

The building was the headquarters and terminal for the Cunard cruise line, which operated ships such as the Queen Mary, the Queen Elizabeth and the QE2. The company moved out in the 1990s but although much of the building is now office space, there are some corners that have been left untouched since the days of the shipbuilders.

Stephanie Power went along for a tour, helped by John Hinchliffe, world heritage officer for Liverpool City Council.
