A day in Liverpool, the city of the Beatles & football
Time to say goodbye to London and leave for a brief 2-hour train ride to Liverpool, the city that lives and breathes music! There are so many street performers and music wherever you go, that the city was voted by the Guinness World of Records as the “international capital of pop.” We’re going to spend a day in Liverpool to learn a little more about the city where the greatest band of all time, the Beatles, was born.
Stroll along the city’s famous Albert Docks area, which is one of England’s main cultural heritage attractions. There are several museums, galleries, restaurants and bars here. In these docks, there is also the museum called “Beatles Story”, which tells the story of The Beatles.
The city has so many attractions and is so rich in culture that some areas of the city centre have become UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
With a wonderful day of sunshine! After a great walk through the streets of Liverpool, we went to the Anfield football stadium, the home of the famous Liverpool FC.
Unfortunately, we could not enter the stadium because an event was happening and it was not open for visitors, but we took advantage of the fact that we were there and went to the team store … a giant store with everything you can think of with the name of the team on it. We even found LFC-branded chocolate and lollipops!
This was our first day in Liverpool, but it was just the beginning of our adventure here and we will explore it more tomorrow. If you can’t wait and want to learn more about Liverpool and the nearby area, check out our article about places to visit near Liverpool.
