Liverpool’s most famous export, The Beatles, are still one of the city’s biggest draws. Many visitors follow a ‘Beatles Trail’ to take in key sights associated with the quartet – the Cavern club, the homes of Paul McCartney and John Lennon (booking required) and ‘The Beatles’ Story’, a museum on the Albert Dock, tracing the band’s history.

However, Liverpool is more than just The Beatles. Having lived with a reputation as a run-down, badly-off sort of place for several decades, the Liverpool of today is a rejuvenated, exciting, modern city. Liverpool now celebrates its fascinating history - many historic building around the Albert Dock have been given a new lease of life, and several world class museums have been installed.

The trendy ‘Ropewalks’ area has seen a warehouse and factory district turned into a buzzing scene of art galleries, media exhibitions, cafes and bars.

Football is of course as important to the community here as in neighbouring Manchester, and tours are offered of world-famous Anfield, home of Liverpool Football Club.
