Bustling, colourful Liverpool is a haven for lovers of football- this city in the north of England cherishes the sport with a passion. See Liverpool FC in action at the iconic Anfield stadium and soak up the unique atmosphere.
Liverpool also has a rich musical heritage, not least the Beatles, who started their world domination here: a visit to the famous Cavern club, where they played many of their early gigs, is a must.
Showcasing history, culture and contemporary chic (which Liverpool wears proudly), one of the world’s largest cathedrals presides over the city and is a dominant feature of its skyline, and you’ll also find an impressive array of museums, galleries and shops here, with many attractions on the Albert Dock- a nice spot for a stroll after dining on the waterfront.
Liverpool is just over two hours by train from London, and makes a perfect short break while you’re on holiday in the UK. Why not pop over to the equally football-mad Manchester while you’re here? It’s a short train ride away.
