Introducing Liverpool


Liverpool, once a major port and trading centre for the UK, has restored many of its former architectural treasures as well as introducing some new modern constructions. Liverpool's waterfront and docks is a Unesco World Heritage site due to the number of listed buildings. It also has one of the best cultural scenes in the country with top class museums and galleries. The nightlife is great and of course we can't forget that for the Beatles fan, this is the city to be in, and watching a band at the famous Cavern Club or seeing a musical or concert at Liverpool's Empire Theatre. 'Liverpool One' has excellent shopping and dining.
