Liverpool

A UNESCO World Heritage city and birthplace of the legendary Beatles, Liverpool, in the north west of England, was founded on the right bank of the River Mersey at the confluence with Irish Sea. It is a lively and bustling city, full of things to do and sights to see, ideal for lovers of culture and for those seeking relaxation. We will visit its theatres, traditional pubs, its historical buildings and cathedrals, streets that are the setting for live music, festivals and events of all kinds.

A UNESCO World Heritage site as a Maritime Mercantile City, Liverpool also boasts the largest concentration of museums in the United Kingdom outside London, many of them with free admission. A visit to the Albert Dock and all the other piers restructured and transformed into lively and stimulating areas with museums, shops and attractions such as the Tate Gallery, the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the Beatles Story Museum are really worth a visit.  Its cathedrals are also stunning: including the massive neo-Gothic Cathedral Church of Christ and the futuristic Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King with its curious circular shape. Liverpool is the city of the Beatles and the link with their music is very strong. So you can explore their story and visit the Cavern Club in Mathew Street or the numerous music festivals. 

Not to be missed:

  • The buildings of the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building and Port of Liverpool Building dubbed by Liverpudlians as: "the three graces".

  • The Walker Gallery, one of the most important art galleries in the United Kingdom.

  • A tour of the city aboard a classic black cab, passing through Penny Lane and other places in the city made famous by the Beatles.
