    Why we love Liverpool

    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, indulge your footie fantasies with a trip to Liverpool F.C’s Anfield Stadium, or feel on top of the world with a 360-degree tour of the Royal Liver Building. 

    There’s plenty to experience from ghostly street tours to sipping cocktails from its many rooftops bars, and there’s more galleries and museums here than any other city outside London. Whether you take in its Georgian Quarter for brunch, its independent vibe in the Baltic Triangle for dinner or pick up some glad-rags in Liverpool One, this city really is the place to be.
