Where to live in Liverpool
What to do in Liverpool
To this day, 50 years after The Beatles first performed on its stage, the Cavern Club is still one of Liverpool’s top music venues, offering a wide variety of live music daily for visitors to enjoy. Keeping with The Beatles theme, there’s The Beatles Story museum the world’s largest exhibition purely devoted to telling the story of The Beatles’ rise to fame which is a must see for any fan. Hop on the city tour bus to hear about the social history of the city and where the fab four lived and played. The bus also makes two stops at Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields for you to take photographs.
If you’re not here for The Beatles and just want to take in some culture then head to Liverpool Cathedral, the largest in Britain, and take in the awe-inspiring architecture. Liverpool is home to many more beautiful buildings including the world-famous Royal Liver Building which has recently unlocked its doors to the public for the first time in over 100 years.
However, many Liverpudlians will argue that neither of these two are the most beautiful attractions in Liverpool, instead they will argue that the competition is in fact between two completely new candidates: Anfield or Goodison Park. In Liverpool you’ve got to be either red or blue, so why not take a tour around both of these stadiums and choose your side.
There’s plenty of things to do in Liverpool, the only problem you might come across is finding the time to fit everything in!
