    Liverpool Favorites

    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".

  • Cathedrals

    Liverpool Favorites

    The architect Giles Gilbert Scott (1880-1960) won the architectural competion to design the cathedral when he was just 22! Work on its construction began when Liverpool was truly the second city of the Empire, before the outbreak of World War I. That war, the economic problems of the 1920s and 30s, and World War II all slowed down construction....

    John Lennon Airport Car Parks are generally a rip-off. Most quote the same HIGH price. I found liverpoolparkandfly.com and it cost me half the price. It is run by a guy called Mike and he even picked me up when I came back at 3:30 am! They even do Bed & Breakfast on their farm now. Superb! Link: LIVERPOOL PARK & FLY! CONTACT: OFFICE : 0151 425...

  • Beatles

    Liverpool Favorites

    The Beatles are from Liverpool. Everybody knows that. I really like how the whole city still wasn't turned into a Beatles trap! The local tourist information has a great slogan on their plastic bags "From MErseyside to YOU" and John Lennon airport has probably the most suitable slogan I have ever heard of: "Above us only sky". It's really easy to...

  • Radio City Tower/Views

    Liverpool Favorites

    St John's Tower, in Williamson Square by the markets, used to have a restaurant situated at the top where you could get great views over the city centre - see Steventilly's Liverpool page for some pics. Now it is the home of the award winning radio station "Radio City 96.7 FM". Fabulous advertising for them as it dominates the citycentre and you'll...

    Liverpool Favorites

    Visiting the Beatles museum. It doesn´t matter if you consider them the best musical band ever or simply like to hum their tunes, or even if you´re simply interested in knowing more about the decade that changed the world and a big part iof it started here in this really cool city. Besides the Beatles museum, I had a great time going to the Cavern...

  • Ferry Cross the Mersey

    Liverpool Favorites

    Take a ferry ride over the Mersey River. While we were on the ferry they even played the song "Ferry Across the Mersey"...haha...I'm sure they play that on every trip though... ;) It is fairly cheap and gives you another view of the city. The three buildings at the dock are really beautiful.

  • City Centre Buildings

    Liverpool Favorites

    St George's Hall, built in 1854, is one of the finest neo-classical buildings in the world. Built originally for use as a concert hall with adjoining court rooms. Its famous minton tiled floor is rarely on show - its kept under wraps for protection. Today it provides the city of Liverpool with the most magnificent conference and events venue. The...

    Liverpool Favorites

    The decades since Liverpool's heyday as one of the greatest ports in the British Empire have not been kind, but lately this city has been on the rebound. Many of its art galleries and museums are FREE. This includes the newly refurbished Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool Museum, Maritime Museum, Museum of Liverpool Life and the Conservation Centre in...

  • Other Architecture

    Liverpool Favorites

    Alfred Waterhouse designed the Great North Western Hotel in a gothic revival style that reminds me of some of the great Canadian railway hotels. He is perhaps best known for being the architect of the exuberant Natural History Museum in South Kensington. (Incidentally, his brothers helped to found the Price Waterhouse accountancy firm.) It stands...

  • Albert Docks

    Liverpool Favorites

    Half hour boat trips can be taken around the dock complex and a "Duck Tour" involves a tour on land to the main sights of Liverpool ending with a "splashdown" in the Dock.....a bit pricey at £8 though for just under an hour I think. Its easy enough to walk around and explore, but if you are pushed for time and want to see as much as possible then I...

  • Bombed out Church - St Lukes

    Liverpool Favorites

    The Church of St Luke sufferred badly from bombing in the May Blitz of May 1944. Today the exterior remains but trees and bushes have grown in the interior and the gardens around have become a little oasis near to the centre of town.

  • Pubs/Bars

    Liverpool Favorites

    Liverpool is PARTY TOWN!!! It has fantastic Nightclubs, and bars of every description.....but some of the best bars to visit are the 'local' Pubs! Away from the City centre, go to Wavertree, or Lark Lane in Aigburth, and join the local colourful scousers in their favorite pastime! Drinking!!! Lark Lane is kind of a student area, with lots of pubs...
