Liverpool is big on football, culture and reputation. This is one of the UK’s largest cities and busiest ports, and the people who live here have a famous sense of humour, they’re down to earth, and they share a great affection for this great city.
Liverpool is the focal point for Merseyside. It’s a hard-working city that has welcomed growth and regeneration projects with open arms. Alongside the working port, many of the historic dock buildings have been given a new lease of life, the city centre has premier league shopping, and of course there’s Premier League football too.
Always on the go
As a vital industrial and commercial capital for the North West, the transport infrastructure has to keep up to speed. The M62, the M53 and the M56 connect with the M6, the Mersey Tunnel serves the Birkenhead peninsula, and the fast train from Liverpool Lime Street will have you in London Euston in 2 hours. The Merseyrail metro system provides regular train services from all the suburbs to the city centre, and the John Lennon Airport takes care of domestic and European flights. Life happens at a pace here.
Football is the first thing that comes to mind, however the River Mersey, the Liver Building, the cathedrals and the docks are its iconic landmarks. They symbolise the history and culture of this proud and cosmopolitan city. Whether you're shopping or people-watching in L1, enjoying the cafe life of Lark Lane near Sefton Park or taking in an exhibition at the Tate of the North at the Albert Dock, you'll want to do it again!
Liverpool's backdrop across the Mersey and the Wirral is the Snowdonia National Park. You can see the mountains on a clear day. Another surprise lies just up the coast towards Southport where there are fabulous sandy beaches, pine woods and sand dunes for summer days out and winter walks. Use the Merseyrail service and hop off at Waterloo, Crosby, Hall Road, Formby or Freshfield - the beaches are within walking distance of the station stops.
