Liverpool is one of the most visited cities in the UK, and international travellers frequently stop off to experience the birthplace of the Beatles, the Mersey Beat, and football. But Liverpool has a rich maritime heritage, too, and in 2004 its reimagined Waterfront area became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Home to the cultural hub of the city, the Walker Gallery houses one of the finest classical art collections in Europe, and the Tate Liverpool showcases contemporary pieces and local talent. Reaching throughout the city, Liverpool’s numerous theatres put on an eclectic, constantly changing range of performances, from classic theatre, and musicals through to alternative comedy and dance.
The choice of shops is vast, with something to suit every taste. High street big names are fully represented in the Liverpool One shopping centre, alongside designer labels, many of which are only showcasing in Liverpool, and ignoring the London market completely. If you seek something more salubrious and artisan, boutiques offer one-off pieces, handcrafted gifts and lovingly made goodies, especially in the well known Bold Street area.
