Travel Guide
Royal Liver Building featuring a city and heritage architecture
Catch a show at the Beatles’ first venue, tour the port where the Titanic was registered and see one of Europe’s best soccer teams battle their rivals in this north England city.

Liverpool leaped onto the world stage in the mid-20th century, when it produced the biggest rock band of all time, the Beatles. Since then, the city has continued to produce some of Britain’s most celebrated musicians, so it is no surprise that it was named 2008’s European Capital of Culture. Long before rock ’n’ roll, Liverpool was famous for its port, which was one of the largest and busiest in the world. By day, learn the city’s interesting Victorian history by touring its waterfront area, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. By night, catch a show in this mecca for rock fans.

Stay in the Albert Dock area, the city’s geographical and cultural centre. Photograph the iconic Royal Liver Building, once the tallest building in Europe, which stands on the waterfront. Visit one of the area’s many museums, like the Merseyside Maritime Museum, which is dedicated to the city’s seafaring history. Try scouse, a stew considered to be a Liverpool specialty, at one of the area’s bars or restaurants.

Learn about Liverpool’s most famous sons, John, Paul, George and Ringo, at the Beatles Story. Two of the Beatles’ early venues, The Cavern Club and the Liverpool Empire Theatre, still stand in the city. Catch a show at one or both.

Join some of Britain’s most devoted soccer fans at the Anfield Road Stadium, home to the Liverpool Football Club. This team is one of the best in Europe, and accordingly, Liverpool natives are some of the loudest fans. If you can’t get a ticket for a professional game, come out to the expansive Sefton Park on weekends to see amateur teams battle.

Fans of sports, music or history will all find something to love in Liverpool. Arrive in the city by bus, train or plane from many of Europe’s major cities. For the most iconic experience, float into Albert Dock on a boat, and make sure you are listening to Penny Lane as you disembark.
