Most famous for its football club and for being the home of the Beatles, Liverpool, in northern England, is a vibrant, exciting city. It's located on the River Mersey and boasts a number of grand 17th and 18th Century buildings that were built in its heyday, during the Industrial Revolution when the city prospered from its cotton, sugar, textiles and slavery. These buildings include the Albert Dock and the Port of Liverpool Building, both of which are reasons for UNESCO designating part of the city a World Heritage Site. This historic area extends all the way along the waterfront to Stanley Dock and includes historic commercial areas as well as Liverpool's cultural centre around William Brown Street.
Music also takes centre stage in Liverpool, of course, especially when one visits locations that the Beatles wrote about, including Penny Lane. And then, of course, there's the Beatles Museum itself, which is a joy to explore. In August, during International Beatles Week, fans flock here to celebrate one of these famous musical legends.
When Liverpool was named the European Capital of Culture in 2008, the city gained even more popularity, and is now a popular tourist destination.
Today visitors flock to visit Albert Dock, not only for its historic significance but also for the many chic restaurants, bars and shops located there as well as two very popular museums, the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the Tate Liverpool. And let's not forget Liverpool's football fame. The city is home to two world-class football clubs - Liverpool and Everton - and people come here specifically to visit the grounds of both clubs on guided tours.
