I am always up for a day out. Exploring cities excites me and I don’t mind if I already have been to a city before because you can always discover new places, shops and coffehouses etc. That way you can get to know the city over and over again from a different side.
A couple of weeks ago we had a german visitor – my dad. As a true Beatles-fan Liverpool was a must-see and so we went and had a truly amazing day!We started outside the city centre at the gate of Strawberry Field – the place that inspired John Lennon to write the famous song.A yummy lunch at The Quarter provided us with enough energy for a long walking tour through Liverpool. The weather was really good (for England ;)) and we really enjoyed exploring the streets.The view from the cathedral is absolutely stunning and worth every penny. Climbing up the stairs is quite scary if you are afraid of heights – but very funny to watch those people who are if you’re not :).The ”Bombed out church” is another fascinating spot in Liverpool. It has not been renovated since World War II and its empty centre often hosts concerts and other events.Close to dawn we reached the docks and the waterfront. I love the architecture there, the combination of old and new…and I could finally go to the Tate Museum gift shop 🙂Before making our way to the famous Philharmonic pub for a pint and some great pub food we went to The Cavern to listen to a Beatles impersonation band. It is a crazy but great atmosphere down there.Revising our little tour through Liverpool in pictures makes me smile. What a great day out!
I hope you enjoy the pics 🙂
