Activities

Diane has arranged a city break to her hometown of Liverpool. We are staying at the YHA central hostel in the heart of city, a few minutes walk from the waterfront. Liverpool has been transformed since winning European City of Culture in 2008 and boasts one of the finest historic waterfronts in the country centred on the Three Graces, of which the Royal Liver Building is the symbol of the city.

Friday Evening: We plan a short walk to the Panoramic Hotel passing a few icons along the way. Our evening meal has been booked here where we can enjoy the magnificent Liverpool skyline from one of the UK's highest restaurants (34th floor with 360 views).

Saturday: We plan a leisurely 8 mile walk taking in the historic heart of the city. We start off at St George's Hall reflecting the pride and passion of Liverpool and the Victorians who built this landmark venue. St George's Hall opened in 1854 and has been the spontaneous gathering place for the people of Liverpool in time of celebration, vigils and commemorations. We head on to the cathedrals of the city; Liverpool is the only city to have two cathedrals on the same street. We will visit both and at the Liverpool Anglican cathedral we can take advantage of the rooftop tour to the highest cathedral tower in the UK, 500 feet high with views as far as the Blackpool tower in the north. Our next stop takes us to the perfectly restored Waterfront. We will visit the Royal Liver Building, take a fabulous photo opportunity with the fab 4 Beatles statue before walking to the Victorian grandeur of the Albert Docks. These historic buildings represent 300 years of Liverpool as the primary transatlantic port and have been transformed into a collection of art galleries, museums and exhibitions with riverside restaurants for our lunch break. People have the option of visiting some of the museums before we head on the fabulous Cavern Club, the most famous music club in the world. Our evening meal will be a Liverpool treat, the traditional pan of Scouse at the legendary Bill Shankly's Hotel.

Sunday: We plan a trip on the "Ferry 'cross The Mersey" with great photo opportunity of this fabulous city. Then options to visit Tate Liverpool, the Maritime Museum or the Beatles museum. People can also sign up for the Magical Mystery Tour led by the Beatles guides which takes in the locations which inspired the group.
