The first of the so-called Three Graces, the Port of Liverpool Building is a Portland stone, Baroque block of a building with corner turrets and a central, copper dome.  It was also the first to be built on land reclaimed from George’s Dock; the Mersey originally ran up to the start of the Strand. Today it is used as impressive office space for commercial lawyers and wealth management types. There is limited public access during Heritage Open Days which must be booked in advance.
