There's much more to the city of Liverpool than just the Beatles and the ongoing rivalry between Liverpool and Everton football clubs.
A key trading port since the 1700s, Liverpool is a city rich with history, some of which can be seen on display at the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the Liverpool Museum. Although the city takes great pride in its history, Liverpool is also thoroughly modern. The warehouses of the old Albert Dock have now been converted into shops, apartments and restaurants and there is also a Beatles' museum.
With a great selection of Liverpool hotels to choose from you can always find somewhere to suit, though the city's year-round popularity means you'll have to plan ahead if you want to secure the best deals. This will be especially true if you visit during a major sporting event such as the Grand National, which takes place at the Aintree racecourse, or when Liverpool are playing at Anfield.
Art lovers are well catered for. Choose from the Walker Art Gallery, the Lady Lever Gallery and the Tate Liverpool, or catch a show at the Everyman theatre. Once you've had your fill of culture, you can indulge in some retail therapy at the Liverpool One shopping centre, chill out in Sefton Park or head out for a day trip to the coast to enjoy the beaches and sand dunes of Formby and Crosby, as well as the cast-iron sculptures by Antony Gormley. Day trips to the Wirral and the 'soap town' of Port Sunlight are also recommended.
To really see Liverpool in all of its glory - including a great view of the Royal Liver Building - head out across the River Mersey on one of the ferries made famous by the hit song by local band Gerry and the Pacemakers.
