With in excess of two and a half thousand restricted buildings in the city, a port, two magnificent cathedrals, numerous museums and galleries Liverpool has much culture and history to offer.
Sports are very important in Liverpool with not one but two premiership football teams under the one metropolitan roof. Inhabitants of the big city either support Liverpool or Everton Football Clubs causing much debate and a fierce competitive edge between the locals.
Birthplace of the sixties Mersey beat and its most famous band, The Beatles, a strong music focus in the city continues to prove evident. Beatles fans and music lovers alike head to Liverpool in their droves to sample the Magical Mystery Tour.
Sports and music are the two main passions about town and there is plenty of evidence of this as you pass through the city with music venues at many a turn and passers by wearing one style and colouring of football clothing or the other. In terms of music venues, you will find you are spoilt for choice should you decide to support the live music scene with your patronage. Popular haunts include The Cavern Club (famous for being the venue of the “Fab Four”), Bar Fly and Lennon’s Bar and provide a good night out. Pub-crawls are a popular activity amongst the locals and many visitors find this an enjoyable way to enjoy an evening in town. There is nothing to compare with a pint of Guinness for breaking the ice between yourself and the very friendly entertaining locals.
Drinking and public house visiting, although entertaining, only accounts for a small chunk of Liverpool nightlife. Being a multicultural city, expect to discover restaurants from a diverse array of international cuisines. Here you can enjoy Indonesian, French Polynesian, Moroccan, Italian, West Indian cuisine and many more at a variety of prices to suit your pocket. Chinese food lovers will need to travel a little further a field than the city centre to find Liverpool’s own Chinatown situated on the outskirts of the city. One of Europe’s oldest Chinatowns, you can expect a superb atmosphere and fantastic oriental cuisine.
Exploring a city can sometimes be fraught with difficulties and complications especially one as huge as Liverpool. Finding the sights here could not be easier with an excellent public transport system and most importantly with such an impressive array of attractions. Travelling around this city can be enjoyed in a number of ways depending on your fancy and in some cases, your stamina. You can tour the city centre by foot with so many sights located within a stone’s throw of each other. Taking in the attractions on foot as well as being a great way to discover the local cafes and pubs is great fun as you require and make the most of a refreshment break-especially on a summer’s day.
The city tourist bus is an excellent way to get around town and to enjoy Liverpool’s attractions as and when they appear. A bus ticket lasts you for a day allowing you to take your time when exploring the many sights and sounds of this huge lively city. The bus itself is a great way to orientate the city and to get a sense of its layout and how easily discover the places that interest you the most, whether it’s the theatre district, the waterfront Albert Dock or the galleries and museums. A great place to begin is at busy tourist haven, Queen Square in the heart of Liverpool’s centre. This is a good start for a touring base and provides a welcome return after a patch of serious attraction hunting.
One of the most welcome sights of all across the city is that of the much recognised view that is Liverpool’s Docks. The breathtaking architecture here is made up of the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building. The Docks have in recent years received much love and attention and is today a popular tourist attraction as well as what can be seen as a celebration of an important international port history. Once one of the most influential ports in the world, Liverpool’s innovative docking technology was shared with the world. The significance of this port is such that UNESCO has made Liverpool Dock a World Heritage Site and should not be missed. The Merseyside Maritime Museum located aptly at the docks tells the tale of its early shipping days and how once unfortunately the port dominated all in its role in the Slave Trade until its abolition in 1807.
There are a number of museums and galleries on offer in this vast impressive city such as the Walker Gallery, The Tate Liverpool gallery, Museum of Liverpool Life and as mentioned before the much intriguing Merseyside Maritime Museum. With more listed buildings and sculpture than anywhere outside of London’s Westminster enjoy one amazing building after another such as St George’s Hall, the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral and the renovated Victorian warehouses of the Docks. Come to Liverpool if you enjoy Georgian buildings! It is said there are more excellent examples of Georgian architecture here in Liverpool than anywhere else, including Bath.
When you need a break from buildings and museums, nothing comes more highly recommended than to unwind and spend some money at the races. Holder of the biggest race meeting in the British Isles, the Grand National, Aintree should not be missed while in this town.
Alongside London, Liverpool offers a cool but rich platter of the best nightclubs in the country. Zansibar, Blue Angel and Cream (nocturnal and vampire-like) regularly coming alive after dark, thrusting on through the small hours.
Life in the big city doesn’t have to be about charging round exhibitions and historical streets at full throttle. As with most cities, the closer you look the more likely you are to stumble upon pretty little pockets of a much less busy landscape. While in Liverpool, why spend the whole time in the heart of a busy screaming metropolis when you can easily reach some delightful beauty spots nearby? Such beauty spots certainly do exist such as majestic Knowsley Hall and Safari Park and the marvellous Hilbre Islands. Situated on the Wirral, Hilbre Islands is a lovely seal habitat set amidst glorious natural landscape amid perfect tranquillity.
