Maritime museum madness
If you're interested in maritime activities, boats, ships and all that lark, perhaps a visit to this maritime museum would be ideal for you.
I however, have no great burning desire to learn about all these kinds of things. My interest began to wain as we reached the second floor, which seemed very similar to the first floor. When I reached the 3rd floor, i was really tiring, and had absolutely no desire to read any more about 'ye olde battleships', and how they all worked. Luckily by this stage it was nearing closing time, and we had to leave. What a pity.
On the bright side of things, it was free to get into and so i didn't really feel let down by it. Maybe i learned a thing or two...
If you have any interest at all in this kinda thing, go check out the place. Mildly amusing Mildly...
Keeping walking past the Liver building, over a little bridge and you will come to the Titanic memorial. Its inscription reads " IN HONOUR OF ALL HEROES OF THE MARINE ENGINE ROOM" so at first you might not realise its referring to the Titanic ;-). It was originally designated as the Engine Room Heroes Memorial (RMS Titanic) but it was subsequently decided to honour all marine engineers and engine room hands lost during WWI and the (RMS Titanic) part of the inscription was not used.

Everton now bill theirselves as The People Club, I wouldn`t say that they are quite that friendly but it certainly isn`t as intimidating as some football clubs.
Goodison Park is an old stadium in need of some redevelopment to make it more comfortable and supporter friendly. I commented on my Burnley page on how nice it was to visit a ground with old wooden seats, here at Everton they still have them too in the visitors section but there is no leg room whatsoever. On top of that there are roof supports in the line of sight as well. To watch the match the only equipment you really need is a good strong voice to sing your club`s songs and encourage the team and your eyes to actually watch the game, some people do take a pair of binoculars if they sit far from the pitch.
Apart from the above the club s encourage you to buy their merchandise to enhance your matchday experience, you can buy virtually anything from hats and scarfs to the full blown replica kit, which generally is updated annually.
Steam Fire Pump
Inside the Great Western Railway building are several old wonderfully preserved fire pumps and engines.
This one was a Shand Mason Steam Fire Pump from 1901. The North Lancashire Fire Force used this pump in the Second World War. It delivered about 350 gallons (1,600 litres) of water per minute. It needed two powerful horses to haul it to the fire!
The Blue Angel
Its quite a grotty little night club that you go to at the end of the night, but the drinks are really cheap and there's always a great atmosphere. I think anything goes for this place as it's a bit of a student bar.
