Liverpool, famous as the birthplace of the Beatles, has been labelled by the Guinness Book of Records as the World Capital City of Pop, as musicians hailing from Liverpool have produced more number one singles than any other. Apart from music, the city is renowned for its two football clubs, Liverpool and Everton, and areas of the city have been designated as Unesco World Heritage Sites for their outstanding and unique architecture. The city has a thriving visual arts scene, with Tate Liverpool, and the Walker Art Gallery being amongst the most outstanding. Liverpool University was founded in 1881 and was one of the original six “red brick” civic universities created in Victorian times. As with many other mercantile ports, Liverpool saw its prosperity diminish over the last century, and in the last two decades the waterfront and docklands areas of the city have been transformed through regeneration projects. Most visitors will choose to rent a car during their stay to give them the chance to explore North Wales and the coastal route, and GoCarRental.com provides the best cheap car rental deals on offer.
Things to Do in Liverpool
The city has more listed buildings than any other city in the UK apart from London. Some “must sees” are the renovated Albert Dock, now a thriving area offering a great choice of eateries, boutiques, and waterside attractions. The Dock is the home of Tate Liverpool, the most visited modern art gallery outside London – and not surprisingly, as it houses an outstanding collection of modern art, as well as staging regular exhibitions of contemporary paintings.
