There is so much to see and do in Liverpool, the city that was awarded the 2008 European Capital of Culture, the list is endless, some examples include:
Royal Albert Dock and Tate Gallery – these former dock buildings constructed in 1845 were completely regenerated and converted in 1988 and features some of Liverpool’s best restaurants, shops, museums, hotels and much more.
Liverpool boasts not one but two cathedrals!
Liverpool Anglican Cathedral This iconic cathedral set on a hill is the 5th biggest in the world, construction began in 1907 and was finally completed in 1978.
Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral Known locally as, “paddy’s wigwam” this cathedral serves the Catholic half of the city and is the largest Catholic cathedral in England. Opened in 1967 it’s famous for its stained-glass lantern tower.
Mersey Ferry – As the song goes take ‘a ferry across the Mersey’ enjoying views of Liverpool’s iconic skyline and the Liver buildings. Liverpool is rich in maritime history so on arrival in Birkenhead visit the Boat Museum by coach or head to Port Sunlight or the Lever Hume Gallery.
Liverpool World Museum – One of the largest museums in the UK which first opened its doors in 1860, this museum is full of interesting facts and items from all eras.
Speke Hall – Visit this rare example of a Tudor Manor House, rich in over 400 years of history.
The Beatles– No visit to Liverpool would be complete without seeing where it all started for the ‘four boys who shook the world.’ See the Beatles Story Museum on the Royal Albert Dock, see Mathew Street with the world famous Cavern Club and the nearby Hard Days Night Hotel with every room, restaurant and bar uniquely themed around the fab Four. See places such as Penny Lane and Strawberry fields, which inspired the songs of the same name. Have your picture taken by Forthlin Road and Mendips (the childhood homes of Paul McCartney and John Lennon). Then head to the real birthplace of the Beatles, the Casbah Club, owned by original Beatles drummer Pete Best and the Best family, this fascinating basement Coffee Bar was decorated by, The Beatles for the opening night and all the artwork remains perfectly intact along with some vandalism by John Lennon!
