  • Ferry Cross the Mersey

    Liverpool Things to Do

    Some people may know the song "Ferry Cross the Mersey" sung by Gerry & the Pacemakers, turns out there is still a ferry cross the Mersey, used as both a tourist attraction and by commuters. Since we arrived by car, we took the tunnel under the Mersey so we didn't take it, the attached link has all the information on taking it either just across the...

  • Albert Dock

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Liverpool Things to Do

    When it was opened in 1846, Albert Dock was the 1st of it's kind, the 1st enclosed, non-combustible dock warehouse system in the world, and the 1st structure in the UK to be built entirely of cast iron, brick and stone, no wood which of course was a fire hazard. At some point the needs outgrew the docks and eventually they closed the docks in 1972....

  • Beatles

    Liverpool Things to Do

    It was a happy coincidence that we were there for International Beatles Week, the Cavern Pub, across the way from their sister club Cavern Club, had hourly shows from 1 pm on the day we were there. There was a small queue when we went in but the queue went quickly and we stayed to see a couple of bands, The Beat Boys from Barcelona and Beat Love...

  • Cathedrals

    Liverpool Things to Do

    I've always wanted to visit Liverpool Cathedral, a Grade I Listed Building, but not had the opportunity until my recent trip to the City (January 2015). It's Britain's largest Cathedral, free of charge though donations are encouraged, and visiting this ginormous building is certainly worth a visit. Climbing up the tower for the great city views...

The three buildings here along the waterfront, the Cunard Building, Port of Liverpool Building, and the Royal Liver Building are known as the Three Graces. It was opened in 1911 and was home to the Royal Liver Assurance group, it was the...

  • Museums

    Liverpool Things to Do

    I enjoyed my visit to this museum in Liverpool. The museum is set over 5 floors and has a bit of an identity crisis. On the first floor there is a small but interesting aquarium of mainly tropical fish. The next floor up has a collection of several different bugs and beasties such as live cockroaches, tarantulas and stick insects. The top three...

  • Chinatown

    3 out of 5 stars

    Liverpool Things to Do

    I can't say too much about the restaurants on offer in Liverpool's Chinatown having not eaten at any of them. It's still worth visiting (as I did) to see the wonderful arch known as the Chinatown Gate. It is the largest multiple-span Chinese arch in the world outside of China and is very ornate and colourful. It includes 200 hand carved dragons and...

  • Public Art

    Liverpool Things to Do

    There are so many monuments and name checks to the Beatles as a group and as individuals you can encounter things which have a name but actually commemorate one of the Fab Four. This is a commemoration to John Lennon as well as European Peace.

  • Football - Anfield & Goodison

    Liverpool Things to Do

    It costs £15 to tour Liverpool's Anfield stadium and for me, it was worth every penny. The tour was conducted by two bubbly Scouse girls who were obviously big fans of the club. Our group of around 30 people started the tour by walking through the gates and into the photo room where pictures of Liverpool legends are lined up on the walls. From...

    Liverpool Things to Do

    On a trip to Liverpool (April 2015) I visited St John's Beacon Viewing Gallery for the panoramic views of Liverpool and beyond. Being a nice sunny day enabled me to have the opportunity to travel up 400 feet above the city centre and enjoy the views down below! The views to look out for are The Three Graces, George Quarter and Albert Dock. Radio...

    Behind the “Three Graces”, you will find the Church of Our Lady and St. Nicholas. A place of worship is known since at least 1257. The present building dates back to 1355 and was consecrated in 1362. The church was expanded, but neglected in the late 18th century. Finally, the result of neglection was that the spire crashed into the church in 1810....
