Most famous for its cathedrals, the Albert Dock, football, and for having been home to the Beatles, the city of Liverpool has a strong and interesting past but is constantly evolving, even more since it has won the prestigious award of European Capital of Culture in 2008. Your experience in the city will be made even better by the people of Liverpool, known as ‘Liverpudlians’ or ‘Scousers’, who are cheerful and friendly with visitors.
The city’s most popular sons are undoubtedly the Beatles, and the city attracts many visitors to follow their journey from their first gig in the Tavern and to their way to international stardom. But Liverpool is more than just the Beatles: it is also home to two top football clubs, Everton FC and Liverpool FC, the latter being amongst the most celebrated clubs in Europe with 18 League titles and 5 European Cup titles. Learning more about the city's historic sights and architecture is also recommended.
Liverpool’s restaurant scene has blossomed over the past decades with new eateries popping up all over town. The city is home to the oldest Chinese community in Europe, which, of course, has meant a plethora of brilliant Asian restaurants in the Chinatown area. There are plenty of other local ethnic restaurants with great food available all over the city.
Liverpool offers a varied selection of bars in the city centre. The area around Victoria Street is naturally one of the most popular to visit amongst tourists, mainly because of the Beatles, but also because it offers good bars and clubs. Nightlife in Liverpool is very lively and it is easy to have a fantastic time. The city’s universities help to ensure a mixed group of people from all over the world.
Shopping in Liverpool is a great experience. Most of the shops are located near the main streets in Williamson Square; however, there are a couple of very good side streets which house more unusual boutiques and shops, unique to Liverpool as well. The Liverpudlians are extremely style-conscious and also very big on brand names. It is therefore natural to find most high-end shops having at least one outlet in the city. The shopping centres in Clayton Square and St. Johns shopping centre are also worth a visit, and just outside Liverpool is one of Europe’s largest designer outlets, Cheshire Oaks. The Albert Dock also offers very trendy shops and has everything from clothing to furniture stores. If you need something different, you will need to head for Chinatown. Every Sunday they have a large Chinese market there that sells everything from cooking pots to fresh meat sausages.
