It would be difficult to mention Liverpool or Merseyside in general for that matter and not utter The Beatles in the same breath. The iconic band have legions of fans the world over, even half a century after they formed and the city is the centre point for all things related to the four members. The Beatles Story at the Albert Dock provides an insight into their history that can take several hours to navigate and the world famous Cavern Club, where they first started playing, is another must see attraction. Even though much of the original club is no longer there, the modern adaptation is in the same location.

With several large shopping centres and every high street store and multinational brand you can think of, a whole day can be spent navigating around the outlets in the city. It is also home to various pubs and clubs that provide a lively night out and the cities two football teams – Liverpool and Everton with their grounds, are a mere stone’s throw apart offering a unique experience for football fans.
