Some Things to Do in Liverpool

 If you've never visited Liverpool before, you'll find yourself spoiled for choice in this north-western city and cultural hub, and even if you're a regular visitor here you're still bound to find new experiences to enjoy in Liverpool's dynamic and ever-changing arts scene.

Liverpool has many world-famous achievements to its name, but to many people in Britain and abroad, the city is most closely associated with its music exports - specifically the Beatles. Liverpool's tourism industry hasn't overlooked this fact, and you can find a number of high quality locations celebrating various aspects of the Fab Four, the most notable being the Beatles Story exhibition itself that features interactive exhibits. Dedicated Beatles fans can also trace the history of the band and its individual members by taking a Beatles Tour around significant areas of the city, including Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane and the former homes of the pop legends.

There are many other museums celebrating different aspects of Liverpool's heritage and culture, such as the Maritime Museum and the International Slavery Museum, the latter of which doesn't hold back in presenting a stark and thought-provoking insight into the suffering experienced by people in the past. Other museums in Liverpool similarly expand their horizons to tackle subjects larger than the city itself, such as the World Museum that collects everything from Ancient Egyptian artefacts to contemporary art works.

If you're interested in the arts, galleries such as the Tate Liverpool rival those of London and other cities, and Liverpool's recognition as European City of Culture in 2008 led to significant improvements in some of its major theatres and other entertainment venues, where you'll find a number of acclaimed and popular performances taking place throughout the year - from West End musicals to Christmas pantomimes.

Some of Liverpool's historic buildings are tourist attractions in their own right, including the city's two cathedrals and several hotels in Liverpool. If you're visiting with the family, Calderstones Park is located close to the city centre and is a great place to relax in the sun or enjoy outdoor activities, while football fans can also enjoy close proximity to the home grounds of two of the country's top teams - namely Liverpool Football Club at Anfield and Everton Football Club at Goodison Park. As a major city, Liverpool also offers all the shopping opportunities, restaurant options and night-time venues you need to get the most out of your city break.
