A Proud History. An Ambitious Future.

The Cunard. Cultural landmark.
This Grade II listed building and one of the Three Graces forms one of the most iconic waterfronts in the world.



Its history dates back to 1914 when construction was commissioned by the Cunard Steamship Company.

The building was built to 180,000 cubic feet of Portland stone with 50,000 cubic feet of Italian marble. The design was based on the Palazzo Farnese in Rome, and the construction of the building was completed in 1917.


It remained the headquarters of the Cunard line until 1969 and to this day remains its spiritual home.

The histories of Liverpool and Cunard are interwoven and the love of the company, by the city, continues to this day.

2015 saw the 175th celebration of the Cunard company with the three Cunard Queen ships ‘saluting’ the building as over 1 million people watched from the banks of the Mersey.



Stunning features exist within the building to this day and form the unique backdrop to a range of modern workspaces, purposefully designed for the businesses of today and tomorrow.

Given its scale, the Cunard offers complete flexibility which can be designed around you and your workforce.

The Cunard is now embarking on another chapter in its already rich history; ambitious new places define the future as it becomes a hub for tomorrow’s businesses, offering an environment of inspiration that drives people, culture and ideas.

This is No Ordinary Building.
Be part of it.
