Hands up if you’ve never heard of Liverpool? This proud port city is one of the most famous in the world and has exhibited a hard-working, independent spirit for centuries. Many of its waterfront buildings are now part of the Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City World Heritage Site and the docks are home to the International Slavery Museum, Merseyside Maritime Museum and Tate Liverpool. Nearby, The Beatles Story tells the story of Liverpool’s most famous musical export and you can learn more by visiting the childhood homes of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Throw in The Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool Football Club, Britain’s largest cathedral and a ferry across the Mersey and you’ve got tons to keep you occupied. You’ll need to book much longer than one night at a Liverpool hotel or B&B to fit it all in.
