Access info & map

Founded in 1797 by famous Liverpool figures including Roscoe and Case, for two centuries the Athenaeum has played host to the rituals of friends meeting and exchanging information. Home to a famous library of over 60,000 items, its Reading Room has been called ‘one of the handsomest rooms in Europe’.

The Athenaeum bar is open for drinks and bar snacks.
