On my recent trip to Liverpool I deliberately avoided anything to do with football or The Beatles – both pull in the tourists, but neither were of interest me on my adventures around the the city.
Maybe Liverpool should spend more time shouting about its amazing views and stunning architecture and move on from bragging about a band which broke up back in 1970…
What makes for great photos in Liverpool is the mixture of old and new architecture. Liverpudlians seem uncomfortable with the modernity of some of the buildings… C’mon Liverpool, it’s time to embrace them! Both the old and new can exist side-by-side in the beauty of their contrast.
I was lucky with the weather, and the blue skies were a real treat for March.
For anyone thinking of visiting Liverpool here’s a few links for things to do and see that I’d recommend… Shiverpool, Albert Dock, The Philharmonic Dining Rooms, Liverpool Cathedral Tower, City Explorer Bus Tour, The Mersey Ferry (see here for a money saving ticket for the Cathedral, bus tour, and ferry) , Antony Gormley’s installation in Crosby, Mowgli restaurant, Bold Street Coffee, St Luke’s Church.
