Travel Guide
Royal Liver Building which includes a city and heritage architecture

Thanks to some of Britain’s best bands, exciting museums and a rich maritime history, this compact northern city is one of England’s finest cultural destinations.

Once home to one of the busiest ports in the world, this northern English city has transformed into a cultural enclave. The city has a fascinating Victorian history, and a legacy of producing some of Britain’s best-known musicians. A large part of Liverpool’s historic port precinct was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2004, while the city was named the European Capital of Culture for 2008.

Make your way to Albert Dock to see the cultural heart of the city. Once the home to some of the biggest ships in the world, today the precinct is a hub for restaurants, bars and cultural institutions. Try a plate of scouse, a stew typical of northern England at a waterfront restaurant. Learn about the city’s maritime history at the Merseyside Maritime Museum. The waterfront precinct is also home to one of the most iconic buildings in the city, the towering Royal Liver Building.

The Beatles are by far the best-known band produced by the city, and are part of the rich musical fabric that flows through Liverpool. Hear how the most famous band in the world started their career in the city at the Beatles Story, or take in a concert at one of their old haunts, the Liverpool Empire Theatre.

Liverpool locals are fanatical about their sport, and visiting during the chilly winter months will ensure you’ll see the city proudly waving their scarves. See the Liverpool Football Club battle their rivals at the historic Anfield Road Stadium, or watch the local amateurs at Sefton Park. Relax as you walk through the leafy surrounds of the park, just one of the many green areas in the picturesque city.

Liverpool is a city that appeals to a wide range of travelers, and appeals to all budgets. Whether your passion is sports, music or history, the cozy northern city has a side that appeals to you. Reach Liverpool by plane, bus or train from many major cities in Europe, or embrace the city’s past and arrive by boat at Albert Dock.
