I’d never been before and had heard lots of good things about the variety of architecture in the city centre.
I didn’t know when I’d get the chance to have a free trip to Liverpool again so at 7.15am I was on the bus and on route.
After a quick bus tour around the centre seeing the setting for the Toxteth riots, the Cathedral either end of Hope Street and my tutors old university halls, it was time to go climb Radio City.
The pictures don’t do it justice, it really was a great view at the top. It’s very high up (your ears pop in the lift to the top) so probably not the best for anyone with a fear of heights.
Next up was what I was really hoping I’d get to see – The Cavern Club. Although I’m not the biggest Beatles fan, I really wanted to see the famous site and where it all began.
The original entrance is actually closed off now and a new door has been made, but still great to see.
I loved spotting names on the ‘Wall of Fame’ too.
After getting the typical tourist snaps, we got to stop off at Liverpool One. We had a quick look around Zara before devouring a Cranberry and Brie toastie with a hot chocolate in EAT.
Next stop was the docks, we had a quick look around the museum before heading over to the Echo arena and conference centre for a tour.
The docks had so many great photo opportunities and I wish I could have had a bit more of a look around. They also have a Titanic museum which I’d love to see if I’m ever in the city again.
Overall, Liverpool didn’t disappoint. The history and variety of buildings, shops, restaurants and just seeing the regeneration of the city was really great.
Definitely worth a visit if you’re passing by.
