Famed across the globe as a true culture capital

Liverpool is one of the most visited cities in the UK, a top 5 retail centre and recently named in the Rough Guide’s top ten global cities to visit. The birthplace of pop music; dozens of theatres, galleries and museums (second only to London); Premier League football at Liverpool and Everton; hundreds of restaurants and bars; legendary nightlife; and iconic waterfront with a Ferry ‘cross the Mersey. Liverpool is at the heart of the UK. We’re connected by direct rail services, with London just two hours away and services every hour. (For international connections there is a choice of both Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Manchester International Airports which are both within a 45 minute drive time.)

Home to Tate Liverpool and the Walker Art Gallery; the city hosts major touring exhibitions from artists such as Picasso, Magritte, Warhol, Monet and Van Gogh alongside the Liverpool Biennial, Europe’s second biggest contemporary visual arts event. The award-winning Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is the classical counterpoint to the city’s vibrant contemporary music venues and the visually stunning M&S Bank Arena which hosts world-leading performers. Liverpool has one of the world’s great waterfronts and open space is abundant, with 135km of coastline that includes woodlands, nature reserves and promenades, as well as 60km of beach. And the best thing is, you can enjoy all this in just a few days. GREATNESS AWAITS.
