Liverpool

Visit Liverpool

As a city, Liverpool is diverse, energetic and exciting: from celebrating Liverpool's 800th birthday in 2007 to being the European Capital of Culture in 2008, football to festivals, music to maritime and clubs to cuisine.

Arts & Culture
The architecture is world-class, with more listed buildings than any city outside London. The heart of the city and its waterfront sit proudly alongside treasures like the Taj Mahal and Pyramids at Giza as a World Heritage Site. Whether you're coming to Liverpool for arts and culture, sport or family outings for the half-term holidays, you'll be spoilt for choice in this great city.

Shopping
Liverpool is the kind of place where styles tend to make their first appearances before filtering through to the rest of the country. It has therefore become the first place to look for people with an eye on fashion. But clothing is just part of the Liverpool shopping experience.

Musical Liverpool
Thanks to The Beatles, Liverpool has become a positive mecca for music lovers worldwide. Make a beeline to the Beatles Story on the Albert Dock. The city's place in the story of pop didn't start and finish with the Fab Four. Their contemporaries in the Merseybeat scene and musicians are as diverse as Echo and the Bunnymen, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Atomic Kitten.

Fresh Air & Green Spaces
Liverpool is the centre of a dynamic area containing seaside resorts, breathtaking landscapes, vibrant towns and villages with a host of historic places and stories. What's more it's all joined together by a comprehensive network of road, rail and ferry links.
