What to expect in Liverpool
Fun loving Liverpool is the city that gave us the Cavern Club, the Fab Four and Echo and the Bunnymen . Once a Capital of Culture, this is a city of cutting edge art, fanatical football clubs, trendy waterfront bars, fancy restaurants and an eclectic and happening live music scene. Thanks to a while lot of urban regeneration Liverpool’s architecture gleams, both old and new while industrial locations have been transformed into exquisite cultural spots like the Albert Dock, the Beatles Storey and Tate Liverpool. Liverpool is also much cheaper in comparison to many cities in the south of the UK. A three course dinner for two in a decent restaurant would cost around £45*while a coffee from £1.90*. There is also an excellent range of accommodation from five star hotels and family B&Bs to backpacker hostels and bargain out of town places to stay. The climate in Liverpool is much the same as the rest of the UK with mild winters and a generally unpredictable mix of rain, sun and wind.
With artistic allure, a wild nightlife, a local sculpture scattered beach and some of the friendliest locals on the planet Liverpool makes a fantastic city break for the whole family, any time of year.
