If you are looking for a reason to visit Liverpool or are unsure why you should then the below should tempt you.
Reasons to visit Liverpool are varied. You can take a look at the UNESCO World Heritage Water Front. The UNESCO listing applies to six different areas of Liverpool which are all worth visiting in their own right. The sites include the Pier Head, the Albert Dock, Castle Street, the William Brown Conservation Area, and Duke Street.
Liverpool is not just as pretty place but has a lively music scene. As well as the Beatles Liverpool has also produced acts such as Echo and the Bunnymen, Farm and Cast as well as a multitude of others. Live music is often played throughout the city in its numerous bars.
Without exaggeration the theatres and museums in Liverpool are World Class so if you fancy a little bit of culture then head towards the Museum of Liverpool, the Walker Art Gallery, the Merseyside Maritime Museum or the Philharmonic Hall.
As the song goes Liverpool also has a Cathedral to spare so whatever your religion you should take the time to visit both the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King and the Anglican Cathedral Church of Christ. As we like to make life easier for visitors we have put both the cathedrals on the same street (Hope Street).
Sport plays a huge part in Liverpool life. The cities two major football teams are both in the Barclays Premier League and play on alternate Saturdays though the football season. It is not unusual for different family members to support different clubs which leads to (mostly friendly) rivalry. The city also hosts a World Class horse race in the form of the Grand National which is held each year. The ladies and gentleman of the city enjoy dressing up for this event and showing Liverpool in its best possible glamorous light while having a flutter or two.
Outside of Liverpool, then there are some other gems such as Crosby beach, the red squirrel nature reserve in Formby (though spotting the squirrels may be more difficult than you expect) or the faded glamour of the seaside resort of Southport.
