Liverpool

The city that gave us The Beatles, Liverpool has moved on from its industrial roots to become one of Britain’s most dynamic and vibrant cultural centres.
The Beatles Story, Liverpool
We love

From the Fab Four to Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Liverpool is a UNESCO City of Music with seriously cool credentials. Get into the groove at the British Music Experience, step back in time at the historic Cavern Club, or crank up the classical with a trip to Philharmonic Hall. Like your tunes with a slice of sightseeing? Worry not - the home of The Beatles has much more than music up its sleeve! Indulge your footie fantasies with a trip to Liverpool F.C, feel on top of the world with a 360° tour of the Royal Liver Building, or descend into darkness with a spooky city ghost tour.  With more galleries and museums than any other city in Britain but London, you can explore its history at the Museum of Liverpool, go stratospheric at Spaceport Planetarium, or see cutting edge modern at Tate Liverpool, all before indulging in the city’s mouth-watering culinary scene. From brilliant bands to the Baltic Triangle, Liverpool’s the place to be.
