Trip Report The ferry crossed the Mersey and we loved Liverpool~

Jump to last reply

Liverpool isn't mentioned much here so thought I would post that we had a wonderful visit.

The Magical Mystery Bus Tour was great fun and left us on Mathew Street, where the Cavern Club entertained us the rest of the afternoon.

Milwaukee has the Bronze Fonz and Liverpool has a beautifully sculpted John Lennon:

A tour of Anfield Football Stadium was a highlight, and we also did a city bus tour, courtesy of 2-for-1 offers. (I was pleasantly surprised to see Liverpool vouchers on the London DaysOut site.)

My brother warned me to watch out for street toughs in this "rough city" but I was totally charmed - a lad (or lout) would brush my arm crossing the street and I'd be rewarded with a sweet smile and a "sorry luv."

We couldn't afford to actually see a Liverpool match so settled for an affordable League 2 game - home team lost.

Liverpool proved very walkable and the dock area is fascinating - loved the beauty of the Three Graces and they proved a reliable landmark for navigation.

Given how many places there are on our wish list, I don't know that we will return to Merseyside but I'm grateful for the days we had there.

These lyrics often sprang to mind that visit:
"People around every corner
They seem to smile and say
We don't care what your name is boy
We'll never turn you away"
