Opened in 1911, the building was the purpose-built home of the Royal Liver Assurance group, which had been set up in the city in 1850 to provide locals with assistance related to losing a wage-earning relative. One of the first buildings in the world to be built using reinforced concrete, the Royal Liver Building stands at 98.2 m (322 ft) tall to the top of the spires, 103.7 metres (340feet) to the top of the birds and 50.9 m (167 ft) to the main roof.

The Liver Birds are 5.5 metres,18 feet high. Their added height gives the Royal Liver Building an overall height of 103.7 metres, 340 feet. A building of skyscraper proportion, and once one of the tallest buildings in the country, the Royal Liver Building is currently the 4th tallest building in Liverpool.

The tall brunette tour guide (Rachel?) Was very helpful and knowledgeable. The cinematic was good and the views were amazing.
Lived in Liverpool for 56 years and first visit to the RLB. We were a group of 4 who thought that this was such an amazing experience. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone thinking of doing the tour. Our guide was fabulous although I cannot remember her name, very knowledgeable and kept us interested at all times. We visited 20th June @ 10:30. I will certainly spread the word.
