4 Must-See When Visiting Liverpool

I have to admit that Liverpool really surprised me, maybe because I went there with not too high expectations or maybe because it was a beautiful sunny day… but in any case, at the end of the day I was glad to have been! Here are the main reasons why:

1 | THE STUNNING MODERN CHURCH

There are two famous churches in Liverpool: The Liverpool cathedral and the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. The first one is the oldest, installed by the bishop in 1880. The second oneΒ is more modern and it’s currently the seatΒ of the Archibishop of Liverpool. From the outside you can visibly see that the second one is more recent than the first one but you would never expect that the inside is so beautiful. First of all the shape of the church itself is really particular: circular , the benches are concentric and the effect they create is really unique. Secondly, the colours….the colours inside this church are stunning, due to the shape and design of the amazing glasses used for the windows.

 

2 | THE MODERN & CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM

Tate Liverpool is definitely worth a visit. When I was there some of the paintings and art works by Matisse were exposed and, together with the other works by other authors stored there, the tour has been really interesting. Plus, the entrance is free so you have no excuses!

3 | WALK BY THE HARBOUR AND THE ALBERT DOCK

Especially when the weather is nice, a walk by the harbour and the Albert Dock,Β a World Heritage Site waterfront, is certainly memorable. Moreover, along the path there are 4 statues representing the Beatles… a must-picture if you’re in Liverpool!

4 | THE CAVERN – The historical Pub of The Beatles

I didn’t have the possibility to visit The Beatles Museum but I did enjoy a concert at the pub where they usually played! Definitely an experience and an experience to cross out from my personal “to do” list! The pub itself is not that big but the atmosphere and the feeling that you can experience while you’re there is unique! The Cavern is located in the city centre so it can be an ideal stop at the end of your tour around the city.

    Great post. One of my ancestors sailed out of Liverpool bound for Australia back in 1855. Indeed, quite a few probably made that journey. I like the sound of that circular cathedral and the symbolism involved.
    Best wishes,

    1. Yes the atmosphere there is unique!
      Thank you for reading and commenting! πŸ™‚

  7. I’ve never really visited Liverpool and I’m English, but we Southerners don’t often go north. Does that remind you of anything? And when we travel we want to visit il Bel Paese!

    1. hahaha yes I can totally relate! I mean I’m Italian and I also haven’t been to many places that tourists from all over the world come to visit! (for example Naples, they told me it’s a really nice city or Capri!) πŸ™‚
