We enjoyed our visit to this city which is undergoing a process of regeneration so there are parts that look very sad with empty shops and buildings.
However the Liverpool One area is vibrant with shops, restaurants and hotels of high quality - almost another world compared with other parts! The museums around the Pier Head area are excellent for both adults and children. The Liverpool museum is particularly interesting. There are several theatres that would be worth visiting. There is a good range of productions.
The traffic one way system is very confusing, even with up to date satnav. Roads only open at certain times etc.
Drivers very aggresive
Found the locals freindly, plenty of buses to get around, able to walk aorund the city if your young enough, great shopping at Liverpool 1.
I really amazed with how beautiful liverpool city is lots of history buildings, lots of entertainments such a pubs, cafes, cocktail bars.
A vibrant city with lots of diverse cultures. Very friendly Lots of fab shopping & a wide variety of eating & drinking places.
Great student facilities & 3 fab Universities.
Lovely town. History town. Many tourist attractions and museum to visit. Many history. Beatles, Liverpool FC, Everton FC, Liverpool Cathedral, etc.
People very friendly. We will be back.
It is a working class city that has many memorials and monuments that acknowledge the sacrifice and contributions of hard working blue collar workers.
It is not a pretentious city. It felt comfortable and interesting to explore. The International Museum on Slavery was well done and broad in scope.
Liverpool is not very big city.. you can just spend 2 nights and that more than enough ... its a must go to liverpool if you are beatlemania! the city of Beatles!
The city has a long cultural history, but you can still find a lot of big shopping centres here. Don't miss a chance to watch a match at the Liverpool FC.
It is a tremendous city with a wide range of things to do. From sport - 2 great clubs - a terrific Philharmonic Orchestra under a great young conductor - so much history and culture.
A good city with not too people around. There is a huge shopping centre at the city centre which provides various of shops.
A ferry cross the Mersey is a must, as is a trip to the Cavern Club on Mathew Street made famous by The Beatles.
If you're willing to give it a go you can join the resident band on stage and be able to say that you played at the famous Cavern Club.(I did).
There's an awful lot to see so take your walking shoes. Must see places are the Pier head and Albert Dock, the cavern quarter, both Cathedrals, the Philharmonic dining rooms, the museums and art galleries and if you take the ferry get off in Birkenhead and check out Hamilton square.
Wonderful city, Please visit Albert Docks and if you are the great fan of the Beatles please go and see the beatles story
it was kind of surprise to me, I didn't expect that Liverpool is so much to offer. still there are tradition in many ways, but many of shopping malls are there.

we go to matches at liverpools football ground anfield, and we relly have a great few days.i travel with my 2 sons aged 18 and 21 and they love going to liverpool.
great sports shops, great places to eat out at, love to walk down by docks and just soak up the atmostphere. i have also been on hen night to liverpool,an we had fantastic weekend.stayed in app,great night life.allways feel very safe there.
The city is quite small, but there is a lot going on. Plenty of bars resturants and there is a lot going on on the outskerts of the city.
Plenty of heritage sites and public gardens to visit. I found the overall Liverpool experience very enjoyable due in no small part to its citizens.
Liverpool has a great history and is now quite modern, especially the area down at the Docks? Good shopping areas near there as well.
Fascinating city. The second largest cathedral in the world and of course the Cavern Club. Great malls and shopping.
Easy to drive in Liverpool as it is not a congested city. It was a highlight of our English experience.
I can best describe Liverpool as a 'museum city' given the richness of history around the city. I have been facinated by its preservation of its historical past presented mainly in the buildings and monuments etc.
I plan to visit the city and the university in summer to explore and learn more about its history including the country as a whole given the colonial history of my own country being a member of the commonwealth and a former colonyf great britain.
Liverpool's got it all. It's a compact city with lots of history and great architecture. I would suggest visiting one of the pubs around the seven old streets like the Hole in the Wall or The Ship and the Mitre.
There is also a great choice of bookshops dotted around the city, like Reid of Liverpool on Mount Pleasant. The ferry across the Mersey is a great way to get a vista across the city.
