Learn more about this city with this Liverpool travel guide.
It is one of the iconic rock cities because one of the biggest bands of this genre was born here… The Beatles and their cultural conception are created around this story.
Apart from that, it has one of the largest soccer teams and is renowned in all international tournaments.
Let’s appreciate a little more about this city and the cultural experience it offers us.
Royal Albert Dock.
It combines history, leisure activities, atmosphere, and views perfectly. You can choose from museums (even the Tate Gallery).
Also places to eat, magnificent buildings, and a safe environment that allows you to wander at any hour.
The views across the River Mersey, the old and new buildings – of the city, and the beautiful, imposing docks. A place of history that combines Liverpool’s robust heritage with its current spruce up as a cultural hub.
As a base for exploring, it’s a short walk into town or an even more leisurely stroll to Pier Head to catch a ferry.
If you don’t feel like it, then various walking buses ( and now little tun motorbikes ) will take you to the town.
Oh, I can’t forget the Beatles as, apart from two museums celebrating them. It’s also the Magical Mystery tour bus to take on a better history mission.
It’s hard to think of another significant area of a city in this country that has so much to offer in a small space without being overcrowded.
There are plenty of hotels- fancy or budget. Apartments to stay in and parking if you are visiting (the cheapest nearby that I saw was £6 per day). The prices to eat, again, range from affordable to more expensive, and the selection is enormous. The museums are free, except for special exhibits in separate areas. There’s even a giant Ferris wheel for great views. And across the road, they have a shopping precinct to die for -if that’s your thing.
A must-see, not just for any Liverpool fan but for any football fan visiting this city. The ground is steeped in history, and you are faced with images of famous players from the past, along with reminders of this institution’s many past (and current) glories.
The Beatles Story
This museum claims it is the only permanent museum collection dedicated solely to The Beatles (but an Elvis exhibit is also for an additional fee). The museum is a life-size chronological walk through (mainly) the rise of The Beatles and their golden years. There are plenty of artifacts to see and recreations of locations to help set the mood. This place is seventh heaven if you’re a massive fan of The Beatles from the early to mid-1960s.
The George Harrison tribute is lovely, but nothing compared to the understated but haunting John Lennon tribute, in which I had to leave the room for sheer emotion. I don’t know who thought of it, but I didn’t. Waiting for him after the onslaught of music and images from the rest of the place, and I’m not one to be easily moved or a particular fan of Lennon.
