Liverpool, located in northwest England, is one of the UK's major port cities. However, the city has gained international fame for two main reasons...first, it is the home base of the legendary football club Liverpool, and second, Liverpool is the Beatles city. All four band members were born in Liverpool and finally founded their world famous band here! But even away from football and music, the city has so much to offer that is definitely worth discovering.

There are many churches and cathedrals in the UK to visit - but the Liverpool Cathedral is probably one of the most beautiful and worth a visit. Both inside and out, Liverpool Cathedral is an impressive structure. A special experience is the ascent to the tower of the cathedral. The way up is a bit strenuous, but the wide view over Liverpool compensates for the effort.
The Museum of Liverpool offers many exciting exhibits about Liverpool's history and life in the city. In "The Great Port" you can see how Liverpool has become one of the most important ports in the world and "The People's Republic" gives you insights into what it means to be a "Liverpudlian". And for those interested in means of transport there's an exhibition "Liverpool Overhead Railway" to enjoy.
If you visit Liverpool, you will not miss the Beatles. You can learn all about Liverpool's famous sons in the award-winning, world's largest permanent exhibition "The Beatles Story." Even if you are not a diehard Beatles fan, a visit to the exhibition is well worth it. And if you need a break overwhelmed by so many new impressions, treat yourself to a coffee and a snack in the stylish FAB4 Cafe.
Watching Liverpool live is an experience you will never forget. Equally impressive is a guided tour of the sacred halls of Anfield Stadium. Very popular is the so-called Legends Tour, in which you have the opportunity to get to know the famous greats of the club and to ask questions. Also worth a visit is "The Liverpool FC Story", the interactive museum of Liverpool FC.
Sometimes you just have to look at things with a little distance - for example from above. A perfect way to get an overview of Liverpool is the Radioturm St. Johns Beacon. From the viewing platform at 137 meters, you have a fantastic view over Liverpool and North Wales. A little tip: Every year there are different dates where the viewing platform is open until late in the evening so you can enjoy the view of the brightly lit city.
