Today it should have been another post published on my blog, about the places I visited in the last 12 months, but with COVID, that was not possible. Do you remember my post from last year?
As travelling was not exactly possible this year, I’m going to share highlights from Liverpool.
I did not include in this post all the links, but there are details on my blog, if you use the search function:
– Old docks – one of the oldest dry docks in the world, underneath a shopping centre
– Liverpool Medical Institution – showing Liverpool’s medical history
– Hardman House (famous photographer) – a National Trust property in the city centre
– Sudley House – a beautiful place with amazing special exhibitions
– War Museum – which shows the Battle of the Atlantic
– Open Eye Gallery – a photography museum on the docks
– St Michaels. The Cast Iron Church – an impressive and different kind of structure
– Croxteth Hall, where I volunteered for a few years.
– Mosque Abdullah Quilliam – a mosque with a fascinating story
– Cavern Club – the Cavern club, where the Beatles sang
– Palm House – a stunning glasshouse
– Alfred Waterhouse – architectural tour
– High Park Reservoir
You can use the mouse to look around the google maps.
Iconic Liverpool: The Three Graces, Museum of Liverpool, Beatles Museum. Nearby is also the Beatles Story. It’s so beautiful.
Museum of Liverpool opened in 2011, the year I moved to Liverpool.
Tate Liverpool is another museum on a nearby docks. There are also the Maritime and Slavery museum, and the Piermaster house. One can spend a couple of days only visiting the museums on the docks.
L1 Shopping centre, one of the shopping centres in Liverpool. There are so many shops and restaurants. It is usually a buzzing place, one which also is the centre for all sorts of events. At only a 5 minutes walk from the docks, it’s not surprising it’s so popular.
Liverpool Town Hall is in another beautiful part of the centre, only a short stroll away from L1. Here too there are restaurants, shops, and accommodations.
Bluecoat and FACT are the perfect locations for modern art lovers. They usually have plenty of events and it’s worth visiting them.
Central Library, see more pictures on my blog.
St. George Hall is 2 minutes away from the library, in the same square with an art gallery, The Walker Art Gallery, which houses well known paintings like the Pelican painting of Elizabeth I. Also, there is the World Museum, a multiple story building which is a must see. St. George Hall is the first public building with air conditioning in United Kingdom.
I forgot to mention that most of these museums are free.
Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral is a modern version of a Catholic church. It is quite interesting to see. It has vaults that can be visited too.
The Philharmonic Dining Rooms, where I had coffee a few years ago.
Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre is one of my favourite tourist attractions in Liverpool. Part of the tunnels are now open to the public.
