With The Beatles

Music is probably the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions Liverpool. The Guinness Book of Records even declared the city the “World Capital City of Pop” in 2001, due to the fact that “acts from Liverpool have had more UK chart number one hit singles (54) per capita than any other city worldwide.”

A Capital of Culture

Culture has always been at the core of Liverpool’s identity. Be they actors, musicians or poets, artists from all around the world have been settling in Liverpool for a long time, and contributed to the city being appointed European Capital of Culture in 2008.

The « Pool of Life »

I have been lucky enough to visit Liverpool on five occasions but each time, I have heard the same thing: “There is no use in spending that much time in Liverpool!” Most people outside of the United Kingdom seem to overlook Liverpool and think that it only comes down to The Cavern Club and Anfield, and believe me, they could not be more wrong! This wonderful city has a lot to offer, and I am going to try and show you that John Lennon was right in saying that “there is a lot to do in Liddypool.”
