Cunard Building

Liverpool


The middle of the trio of Edwardian buildings at Pier Head known as the 'Three Graces', the Cunard Building is in the style of an Italian palazzo, and was once HQ to the Cunard Steamship Line. The old first-class passenger lounge on the ground floor is now home to the British Music Experience.
