Did you know?
Liverpool FC are known as ‘The Reds’ due to the colour of the club’s home kit. Liverpool had originally played in red and white, but Bill Shankly introduced an all-red strip in 1964. He thought that it would make the team seem bigger and more intimidating, as ‘red is the colour of danger and power’.
Liverpool is the European Capital of Culture for 2008, and it's not hard to see why. Not only is it the birthplace of the Beatles and home of Liverpool FC, it's also a great tourist destination with more listed buildings, theatres, museums and galleries than any city outside London. Where else would you find a dedicated Beatles museum and a Tate gallery next to each other? This diverse, vibrant and laid-back city has the ability to make anyone feel instantly at home with its extensive history, modern tourist attractions and youthful vibe.
