Things to do in  Liverpool

Welcome to Liverpool

Once coal-streaked and industrial and now thrumming with dynamism and new life, northerly Liverpool has blossomed into one of England’s must-visit cultural centers. Partial credit goes to the Beatles—local Liverpool lads—whose reflected glory can be seen at The Beatles Story and the historic Cavern Club. But that’s just the start of things to do in Liverpool. Where shipping facilities once stood, the city’s revamped Albert Docks are now a major tourist destination, while landmarks such as Liverpool Cathedral, a cohort of exceptional museums, and Anfield Stadium (home to Liverpool FC) all bring in the crowds.
