Port of Liverpool Building
Edwardian Baroque design (1904) of Sir Arnold Thornley and F.B. Hobbs. Originally the Mersey Docks and Harbour Docks Building - recently restored for both offices and residences. A reinforced concrete frame, clad in Portland Stone. One of Liverpool's "Three graces".
Really this could go in the off the beaten path section as this poignant art work is often missed yet is just a few steps from the Beatles quarter that is Matthew Street.
Eleanor Rigby is dedicated to "all the lonely people". Maybe that is why she is in a lonely place!
Anyway it is customary to leave a few flowers in her hands - unfortunately this day there was none :-(

High Society, 64 Duke Street
Playing some of the cities best funky and disco house music, High Society has emerged as one of the best nightclubs in Liverpool.
It labels itself a "members only" club, but you can get in even if you aren't a member - just make sure that you arrive early! Open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10pm till 4am, and Sundays from 9pm till 2am, this is one of Liverpool's trendiest clubs.
Society hosts one of the most attractive dancefloors in the country - nearly everyone is beautiful!
Host to some top name DJs:
Residents are Les Calvert, Mike Di Scala (of Ultrabeat fame) and Dave Whelan.
Guest DJs have included John Cotton, Steve Parry, Thomas Tuft, Antoine Clamaran, DJ Flex, Greg Di Mano, Hed Kandi, Disco Galaxy Recordings and many more.
High Society is located in Duke Street, which is parallel to Bold Street, but nearer the docks. It is about the same height up as Concert Square, and a two minute walk from Concert Square.
Make sure that you at least try to go to this fantastic club whilst in Liverpool. Music to suit everyone, as there are three different rooms.
Strong anti-drugs policy, so don't even try! But who needs drugs to have fun in a place like Society!
Wicked club - DO NOT MISS OUT!
Check out http://www.societyuk.com to see what is on. The dress code is fashionable. Some very avant-garde styles are displayed. Mainly high fashion designer labels, e.g. Armani, Evisu, D&G, Gucci etc.
DO NOT WEAR A TRACKSUIT!
The bouncers don't let scallies in, so try and look smart, but shaved heads often look like you are a scally! It helps to have an attractive girl on your arm!
Liverpool is easily covered by ..... foot!!!
Liverpool is easily reached by coach (National Express) from London for about thirty pounds (return fare) in about five hours and also by rail(more expensive!) but faster!!
Buses are a plenty but I did my travelling on foot only!! It really is a nice place to walk and maps are easy to find at the coach / rail station for free in the guide books. Taxicabs are also available.
