The Vines Pub - Liverpool


I have to admit to visiting many pubs during my English holiday but none as ornate as this baroque beauty in central Liverpool. The Vines was built in 1867 but remodelled in 1907 by architect Walter Thomas. It is a spectacular sight and serves excellent ales!
I will be back to my Toronto Pics next week - hope we get some sunny days for shooting.

Aren't pubs what England, and traveling are all about? I'd raise a pint with you in this one any day. Fabulous

Really, a beautiful building and very well captured. The contrast with the blue sky was excellent.

Baroque. Victorian. It looks Liverpudlian.

Now that is one elaborately designed building. When I took my dad to London about 10 years ago, we enjoyed many a meal in a variety of pubs.
