Liverpool. The very name conjures up images of a world-beating musical heritage, two of the Premiership’s biggest football teams, a glorious maritime history and not one, but two majestically different Cathedrals. This Northwest city and the surrounding City Region is certainly all those things, but it is also so much more. Liverpool is undergoing a thrilling renaissance, recognised by its hugely successful year as European Capital of Culture.
It is now bulging with fabulous new shops, has buzzing restaurants, hip hotels and trendy wine bars, as well as a world class cultural offering with the fnest collection of museums and galleries outside of the capital.
