As Britain’s second largest port of export, Liverpool is very important for the economy. But the city on the river Mersey is also of great significance for football and the music scene.
At the time of its construction, Liverpool was one of the most modern ports in the world and has been on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 2004. In addition, Liverpool with its impressive waterfront was the 2008 European Capital of Culture. Liverpool did a lot to clean up the docks and city centre in preparation of the vote. Consequently, the former nineteenth century warehouses - the Albert Dock - attract many tourists and Liverpudlians today in their new role as place for leisure.
The highlight of my trip to Liverpool was a football match at a stadium – the atmosphere was electric!
Liverpool is not only famous for its varied nightlife but also a lively music scene. It is no coincidence that the world famous Beatles were founded here. Many of the places where the Fab Four played, lived and sought inspiration are still in existence today and no visit can be complete without going to the place where it all began: The Cavern. Ideally, at the same time as doing the Magical Mystery Tour. This slightly different city tour guides die-hard fans around all places in Liverpool that have a link to John, Paul, George and Ringo.
In one of the world’s biggest sports cities, even one of England’s most successful football teams Liverpool FC cannot stop the association with music. Before every game, fans of the club, which is steeped in tradition, sing their anthem “You’ll never walk alone”. Many football fans travel to Liverpool to experience a match in the famous Anfield Stadium.
