"Liverpool - European Capital of Culture 2008" Top 5 Page for this destination Liverpool by sandysmith

Liverpool Travel Guide: 1,279 reviews and 2,310 photos

I live across the water from Liverpool so its no stranger to me
and this page will often be updated from various visits.

Liverpool is famous for its two cathedrals, the Albert docks, the Beatles the
Mersey ferries and of course its two football teams - Liverpool and Liverpool Reserves!

The "Three Graces"

The main buildings on the waterfront are known as the "Three Graces". They will soon be joined by a "4th Grace", giving Liverpool a comtemporary landscape.

There's always plenty of things going on - even more so since Liverpool has won the prestigous award of European Capital of Culture 2008. Liverpool is now the happening place to be!


There are countless reminders of the Beatles in Liverpool of course. The museum is situated in the Albert Dock Complex and there are memorial statues in the Cavern Walks Centre.

See the travelogue below for "Beatles Street".

Pros and Cons

    Hi Sandy, although it took me ages to click through all of your Liverpool tips, I must admit that this is a very informative page with lots of infos. I went to Liverpool this March and enjoyed it very much. A really cool place!

    Hello You refer to the "3 Graces". I'm 50-something and I hadn't heard this phrase until a few years ago. It isn't a local, Liverpool phrase. Who started it?

    Hi Sandy, I've been 'accross the pond' several times over the past few years for visits to Liverpool. Its a great city, vibrant, the people are the best in the UK, not to mention my visits to that Mecca Anfield! I just love the place, so down to earth!

    Some stunning night shots, especially the first fountain shot. That has "pro" quality.

    I'll get back across the pond all right. And when I do, I plan on doing this Cain tour. Two pints and a buffet for less than four quid?! Now, that's a bargain I can't pass up. :)


“THank you for the birthday wishes!”
