2016 Labour Party Conference

Liverpool is delighted to be hosting the 2016 Labour Party Conference.

Since Labour delegates were last in the city, a new conference centre has been built at Kings Dock, which is just one of several major infrastructure projects the city has recently delivered, with many more on site and in the pipeline – i.e. the new Royal Hospital, Main Stand at Anfield, Knowledge Quarter, Liverpool Waters plus 5,000 new homes. In fact more than £10bn of regeneration projects are in development across Liverpool.

We are looking forward to welcoming again the delegates, speakers, friends and families to the city for conference. Here’s just a taste of what they can look forward to.

From world-class architecture, magnificent museums and music legends revolutionizing popular culture, Liverpool is a city with culture and creativity in its DNA.

People come for the hospitality, too: we were recently voted the friendliest city by readers of Conde Nast’s Traveller magazine.

Culture, of course, is our strong suit. Our Capital of Culture year merely confirmed what every visitor to the city knows: we’ve got more than our fair share of old masters, vibrant theatres and cutting-edge galleries. Tate Liverpool is home to the national collection of modern art in the north, while National Museums Liverpool comprises seven wonder-filled collections.

Half a century after The Beatles exploded on to the world stage, Liverpool is still making all the right noises. You’ll discover a music scene unrivalled in the UK. Blockbuster gigs at the Echo Arena; pitch-perfect classical performances at the Philharmonic Hall; The Beatles-inspired Mathew Street scene or the understated cool of Camp and Furnace and Kazimier.

Liverpool’s dining scene is wonderfully diverse, from sleek fine dining to a booming independent scene.

After a hard day’s shopping, the lights come on and we’re ready to entertain. With cuisine from every corner of the world, bars and pubs that buzz with life and entertainment. Liverpool’s cultural scene is thriving all year round with a wonderful mix of theatres, The Everyman and Playhouse, Empire and Royal Court raise the roof with home-grown and national productions.

Architecturally, few cities match Liverpool’s for sheer wow factor – whether it’s taking in the panorama of our world-famous waterfront from the deck of a Mersey Ferry, or scaling the heights of Britain’s largest cathedral, and surveying the perfect geometry of the Georgian streets below. Liverpool is a UNESCO World Heritage City, placing the city alongside historical treasures such as the Taj Mahal, Pyramids and the Great Wall of China

Liverpool has not only made a unique contribution to world commerce and culture – it has one of the world’s great waterfronts. The magnificent Three Graces and Albert Dock, a former 19th century dock now converted to one of Britain’s top heritage attractions, are the jewels in the crown.

With beaches, parkland, seafront and skyscrapers, we’re proud of our beautiful city – and the ease in which you can arrive (via one of Europe’s fastest growing airports, John Lennon Airport, or the hub of road and rail connections linking us to London in just 2 hours).

The city’s life and style is rooted in the warmth of its people and an unmistakable personality. And we’d love to show you around.
