It’s well worth taking a virtual tour of Liverpool’s Chinatown. Which happens to boast the largest Chinese arch outside of China. The arch was originally built in 2000 and is 44 feet tall. The location of the arch was carefully chosen in accordance with traditional Feng Shui principles. If you look carefully at the arch you’ll spot dragons painted onto the arch. In total there are 200 dragons which are painted across the arch. On a virtual tour of Liverpool’s Chinatown you should easily be able to spot two bronze lions which were built as guardians of the arch.
Prior to taking a virtual tour of Liverpool’s Chinatown, I had no idea that Liverpool boasted its own Chinatown or that it was home to the largest Chinese arch which is located outside of China. Or that Liverpool is home to such a strong Chinese community. Part of the fun aspects of taking a virtual tour of Chinatown is seeing traditional Chinese design elements side by side with historic British buildings.
If you’re interested in seeing one of the most impressive decorative arches in the world, I highly recommend taking a virtual tour of Liverpool’s Chinatown. As it’s my favorite virtual tour in Liverpool which is on offer.

Such as touring productions and orchestral performances. If you visit St George’s Hall for yourself in the future you may be able to buy tickets to a live show.
St George’s Hall is a grade I historic building and is a neoclassical building which was inspired by traditional Greek and Roman styled buildings. If you take a virtual tour around St George’s Hall you’ll be able to see the hall’s barrel style rolled vaulted ceiling and it’s beautifully preserved tiled Minton Floor.
