Fly to Liverpool

Shortly before Liverpool became a City in 1880, the city was described as "the New York of Europe". It’s now a UNESCO world heritage city and still looking brilliant today. Apart from Liverpool FC, most people associate Liverpool with The Beatles. And almost 50 years after the group disbanded, The Beatles are still the city’s pride and joy. There’s a Beatles museum and Beatles sightseeing tours. And The Cavern, where The Beatles first made their name, is still going strong. Pop in to relive the Fab Four’s musical legacy or catch an up-and-coming new band.

Liverpool has a lot more to offer as well. Did you know, for example, that the city has Europe’s oldest Chinatown? Liverpool also has a long and proud maritime history. The once down-at-heel Albert Dock has been restored and developed into a vibrant waterfront attraction, offering a wide variety of museums, shops, restaurants and bars.

And don’t forget the fantastic Liverpool ONE shopping centre – a stylish redevelopment in the very heart of the city, where you will find more than 170 shops and countless restaurants serving food from all around the world. Time will simply fly by. If you’re looking for something truly out of the ordinary, try The Cat Café on Bold Street. But not if you’re allergic to fur!

 

Activities in Liverpool

Watching a home game at Anfield is hard to beat. The stadium atmosphere is unique, and even those not generally keen on football will soon get carried away! For supporters of the city’s other top team, Everton, the place to go is obviously Goodison Park.

Liverpool calls itself a city of culture, and considering the number of exhibitions, festivals and concerts taking place there, that’s no exaggeration. The Beatles Museum tops the list, but if you’re more interested in history or contemporary art, there are many museums and galleries to choose from. So give yourself plenty of time.

Give yourself plenty of time to stroll about, too. Look up, look sideways, around a street corner – and enjoy the gorgeous Victorian architecture. It is easy to find your way around the city, but if you want a better overview, visit one of Liverpool’s lofty landmarks, the radio tower or the Liverpool Wheel. Or why not stop off at Panoramic 34, and enjoy a traditional afternoon tea at the same time.
