Now for Everton player Tim Howard's perspective:

  Everton   1.Creamfields Music Festival This isn’t somewhere I have been to but I am aware of the vibe and the buzz it causes around the city when Creamfields is staged. Creamfields   2. Goodison Park The stadium tours are very popular and it’s easy to see why. There’s so much history within the walls of Goodison Park and for me it’s a fantastic place to come, even when it’s empty.

  3.The Cavern Club This is one of the most iconic music venues in the country, never mind the city. People back in the States always ask me about the Beatles venues over here and anyone with any interest in the band needs to go to the Cavern.

  4. Magical Mystery Tour We’re back to the Beatles again! The Magical Mystery Tour features all the locations in Liverpool that are relevant to the Beatles. It’s an awesome trip and a real chance to see where the guys grew up and developed their careers.

  5. Restaurants I can’t pick one because Liverpool has so many fantastic places to go and eat. There is something for everyone and not just the quality of the food, it’s the locations. There are some beautifully situated restaurants in the city. Balti For more ideas on British attractions, take a look at the VisitBritain Lovewall
