More Liverpool

The Liver building

 Ferry across the Mersey

 Old, very old and new all together

 Inside the Library (sorry this is the museum)

 Albert docks, famous for This Morning, on ITV, in 80's and 90's
 China town

 Statues everywhere.
Liverpool was clean, friendly and really interesting, our hotel was just 10 minutes walk from Albert docks and close to the city centre, perfect location. The weather was kind to us, it only rained on us once on Friday and only for a short while, it did rain every night. We used the tour bus as our means of getting around the city, taking the tour on the 1st morning, and then using the bus as a hop on-hop off transport. Loads of places were free to get into, and eating out was reasonable. We had half a pint of larger and a coffee in the Cavern club and got change from £5, which surprised us.
The mixture of old and new building made the skyline different, we could see the liver building almost everywhere we went.
We did not take a trip on the ferry to cross the Mersey, I'm not a fan of boats, and the wind made the sailings not so smooth, it was enough to see it.
I enjoyed the trip on the eye, it was windy, but not too bad, the views from the top was breath taking. We both loved the library, very old exterior but the inside was modern and bright. We did not go to the Tate, we rather spent our time in the city mixing with everyone. We did walk through the huge shopping area, but I did not step inside any shops, there was nothing I wanted, I don't bother with bringing anything home any more.
To sum our trip up, it was a fabulous couple of days, very tiring, but great fun, and yes I would go back.


  1. Great pictures, sounds like you had a wonderful time Marlene.

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed Liverpool- it’s a wonderful city. Did you try the scouse stew?

    1. I only saw it once, and was not hungry at the time, maybe next time.

  3. I'm glad you had such a good time, you certainly fitted a lot into your time there. These mini breaks are great for seeing new places.

  4. Good to read lots of places were free to attend, maybe more cities should use that policy to up their visitor numbers.

  5. Thanks for sharing your pictures of Liverpool. It looks like a great city to visit!
