Mention Liverpool to anyone and chances are their mind will turn to the Beatles. The iconic Fab Four are still at the heart of the city despite the band splitting in 1970. Their music, lives and fans are everywhere you turn, and numerous tours will take you around their favourite haunts, where they played and the locations of the band’s major life events occurred. The award-winning museum The Beatles Story houses a vast collection of Beatles memorabilia, and the displays include faithful reproductions of these locations, such as the Cavern Club, so important to the development of the Mersey Beat sound.
Other museums in Liverpool include the Merseyside Maritime Museum, housing moving artifacts from the fateful maiden voyage of the great Titanic. The World Museum features collections from major civilisations, the natural world and even outer space. From culture through to futuristic AI, there’s something to interest every visitor, young and old. Art fans are catered for too, with the Walker Art Gallery. Featuring one of the largest art collections outside London, it showcases classical artists alongside local talents and visiting exhibitions.
If retail therapy is what you’re after, the Liverpool One shopping centre is home to all the big high street names, alongside designer labels, many of which are exclusive to Liverpool, choosing to avoid the London market completely! If you seek something even more exclusive, head for Bond Street. Lined with artisan boutiques offering one-off, handcrafted gifts, there’s everything here from pewter and copper smiths to beautiful textiles, pottery and mouth blown glassware.
Finish your day with a relaxing evening cruise along the famous River Mersey, or grab a show in one of the many theatres.
