Liverpool Cathedral café revealed

This is the latest image of Brock Carmichael's proposed visitor centre for Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral - Giles Gilbert Scott's Merseyside masterpiece.

The scheme, which was awarded a £1million Merseyside Objective One grant last month, has been designed to handle an expected increase of visitors - from 340,000 each year to more than 470,000 by 2010.

Sat within the Neo-Gothic Grade I-listed cathedral, the new £2.8 million facility will house a presentation theatre, restaurant, dining patio, and shop.

The visitor centre is part of a £10 million revamp for the much-loved landmark - the fifth largest cathedral in the world - which includes the restoration of the 100m tower.

Cherie Blair, the prime minister's wife, officially launched the appeal to raise the money to fund the project last year (07.10.04).
