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 one is more modern and it’s currently the seat 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, 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.
