Sightseeing in Liverpool is a real experience

by Don

Sightseeing in Liverpool is a real experience for all ages. There are so many different things to see that you may have to be selective if you are only in Liverpool for a short break.

The Albert Docks is well worth seeing, the Maritime Museum and the Tate Liverpool can be found here along with the Beatle’s Story and the Museum of Slavery. The Albert Docks is a lively area of Liverpool which date back many hundreds of years.

If you walk to the Pier Head via Mathew Street not only will you have a magnificent view of the river, you will also be able to see The Three Graces, The Liver Building, Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building. Another great way to see The Three Graces is to catch a ferry across the Mersey and back again.

There are some magnificent churches and cathedrals in Liverpool and you don’t have to be a church goer to visit and stand in awe of the architecture. There is also a guided tour aptly named the Prayer and Pint tour which visits the two cathedrals and the wonderful Philharmonic pub which is half way between the two, which is just as well because one of the cathedrals is uphill from the city!

If you prefer not to do your sightseeing of Liverpool on foot then there are two very good alternatives. One is the Magical Mystery Tour, a two hour bus trip which takes you to places the Beatle’s lived, went to school and also includes Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields.

For the more adventurous and those with kids take the Yellow Duckmarine, this tours the city by road and then splashes into the water to tour the docks.

Sightseeing in Liverpool would not be complete for football fans until they have seen both Anfield, the home to Liverpool Football club and Goodison Park the home to Everton.
