Liverpool City Guide
Liverpool is located at the point of the North of England where the River Mersey flows into the Irish Sea. This city is rich in history, and when you stroll along the Liverpool Waterfront, you might think you reminded of the port’s rich maritime past. Liverpool is also a thriving modern metropolis, one known for its friendly residents, bustling avenues, temperate climate and varied architectural styles.
For centuries, Liverpool has been a desirable place to live and to visit. Its first settlement dates back to before 100 A.D., and by 1200, it was a village with a highly profitable fishing industry. In the 1600s, a series of English Civil War battles raged in and around Liverpool, but during the 1700s, Liverpool experienced a population boom.
By the early 1800s, it ranked as an important port. Tragically, World War II air raids impacted on the city, however, during a 1940 raid, someone who would earn lasting international fame for Liverpool was born: John Lennon.
Things to see
Given that it's John Lennon's birthplace as well as the city in which Paul McCartney grew up, Liverpool is bursting with Beatles-related landmarks. You can tour the boyhood homes of both men, a Beatles museum at Albert Dock and the actual Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane, two places that inspired iconic hit songs.
Liverpool Cathedral and Liverpool Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral are monumental and iconic places of worship. The former is Anglican and opened in 1978. It boasts a spectacular 331-foot-tall tower that you can ascend, and it's the longest cathedral on Earth. The latter, which opened in 1967, is massive, cone-shaped and bold in its design.
A true urban oasis, that is spiritual in its own way. Its grounds include an oak tree that is 1,000 years old, tennis courts, outdoor fitness equipment, beautiful Japanese gardens, a lush pond and a playground for children.
St. George’s Hall
The noted architect Harvey Lonsdale Elmes drew upon ancient Greek and Roman designs when he was planning St. George's Hall, a landmark that was completed in 1855. St. George's Hall houses two kinds of facilities that are rarely contained within the same building: courtrooms and concert halls.
Liverpool is also full of art galleries and museums. The Museum of Liverpool, which debuted in 2011, is situated on the waterfront and displays a wide variety of the city's historic artifacts. The Merseyside Maritime Museum charges no admission fee and features exhibitions on Liverpool's colourful seafaring past. Additionally, the International Slavery Museum recalls the harrowing story of the world's slave trade, including the role that Liverpool once played in it.
