Amongst the world’s finest examples of an encaustic tiled floor, the handcrafted mosaic of over 30,000 tiles were concealed in the 1860s to allow dancing and events to take place at the prestigious venue.
The intricate and exquisite patterned tiled flooring depicts the Liver Birds, the Roman god Neptune, sea nymphs, dolphins and tridents in what was the largest Minton pavement in the world when first constructed.
St George’s Hall Manager, Alan Smith said: “The fantastic Minton Tiles at St George’s Hall are always hugely popular with tourists and residents each time they are revealed. I would urge anyone who hasn’t yet seen them to go along to St George’s Hall and see these magnificent tiles.”
