    St Georges Hall

    St George's Hall

    Favorite thing: 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 Hall has beeny under wraps for a major overhaul - John Lennon wass gracing it with his portrait! - but now it is almost finished and is visible again . Check the website for a virtual tour of what can be seen.

    Bluecoat Chambers

    Bluecoat Cambers

    Favorite thing: Opposite Marks and Spencers a short side street leads to the Bluecoat Chambers.
    This building dates from 1717 is the oldest in Liverpool and perhaps the lovliest - although many would argue in favour of the Liver Buildings.

    It also has a great little cafe here, just a short step away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

    city  centre scene

    Favorite thing: The main shopping area is always a lively, bustling place and recently many sculptures can be discovered - such as this prancing horse - as Liverpool aims to be the "capital of culture" ahead of many other cities such as Newcastle. As always the tower dominated the city centre skyline.

    Clayton square

    Favorite thing: Shopaholics will have no shortages of brand name stores and smaller designer shops in Liverpool. Lord Street is the main shopping street but there are other small shopping malls too..like Clayton Square shown here from the inside in the pic.
