Liverpool Exploring One of England’s Best Waterfront Cities
Located in the northwestern region of England, the city of Liverpool is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United Kingdom. With a population of just above 430,000 residents, Liverpool is the fourth largest city in England.
Situated along the banks of the Mersey River, Liverpool has been greatly shaped and influenced by its waterfront location and status as a port city. With that being said, Liverpool has an array of historic docks that are some of the most unique in the UK and the world.
The Albert Dock is one of the top attractions in Liverpool. Built in the mid 19th century, the construction of the dock used an unprecedented design using only brick, iron, and stone. The Albert Dock is lined with an entire historic district full of industrial age buildings, which will fascinate anyone interested in architecture.
Besides being rich in history, the Albert Dock offers plenty of modern attractions for contemporary crowds. The Merseyside Maritime Museum offers various exhibitions relating to the local maritime industry in the city. Visitors can wrap up the visit with onsite dining and shopping at the gift shop.
Since the mid-20th century, Liverpool has become synonymous with the world famous pop group that originated from the city, the Beatles. The Albert Dock is home to the Beatles Story, a museum dedicated to the legendary music group. Additionally, tourists who fly directly to the city will notice that the Liverpool John Lennon Airport is named after one of the Beatles members. Anfield Stadium, home to the city’s Football Club, is another popular venue that attracts locals and tourists alike and is a major part of Liverpool’s culture.
When it comes to searching for Liverpool hotels, guests should have no problems finding lodging in various districts, including right near the airport or the central district near St George’s Hall and other major landmarks.
