On William Brown Street has as finer collection buildings as any town or city anywhere in England

The fine building of what was the William Brown Library and Museum built 1857-1860 by Thomas Allom and modified by the Liverpool Corporation architect John Weightman. It is 17 bays wide with a six column Corinthian portico.

The old Sessions House - the High Court of its day, built in 1882-1884 by F. & G. Holme. The portico has some fine paired columns.
