Liverpool is the most architectural city in England: A museum in stone welcomes the visitor from the train, and this is repeated in the city centre, business district and on Mersey shore. Dark and isolated Liverpool’s heart was torn out and rebuilt as a private city.
Albert Dock warehousing emblematic of empire trade. Take a train under the Mersey to New Brighton on the Wirral and cycle to the Mersey tunnel air duct. Return by the large ferry which tours the docks before disembarkation. Sea-going ferry to Douglas, Isle of Man from Liverpool pier Head.
Liverpudlians are emotional almost confessional and for this they are loved. Their song ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ is a product of their genius for speech, song and emotion. From Professors of Astronomy, to car thieves, from the Wirral to Toxteth: Liverpool is exotic.
