Calling all Scousers: Tips for visiting Liverpool

30 James Street is a great hotel and right by the Albert Dock and other amenities. They do a great dinner & breakfast as well :sunglasses:

Another vote for the Premier Inn at Albert Dock. If we stay there, we go to the little tapas bar opposite, called Lunya, for breakfast, as they do great coffee.
Our other favourite is Hope Street Hotel, up by the cathedral.

Well up there though.

Not a good night to be owning up to that then :joy:

Everton score 2 at Anfield wow!!!
If they scored 2 at Goodison we would be up the league.
To be honest if I was a red I would be embarrassed that a load of sh*te put two pass you :wink:
Anyway Aldous Harding was superb :sunglasses:

Better born than made :+1:

Aldous Harding is always superb.

Having grown up and gone to school near Liverpool in the 80’s I used to regard the place as a dump but having worked and lived there in the early 90’s at the start of the regeneration I would now say that it is my favourite city in England.

It’s undoubtedly one of the worlds great cities with a wealth of stunning architecture, history, art, culture and music to be savoured.

Some must do’s in my book include:

Visit the Beatles museum in the Albert Dock
Dinner at Gusto in the Albert Dock (preceded by drinks at the Pump House also at the Albert Dock)
Visit Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane and Woolton Church to see the grave of Eleanor Rigby at the Church where John and Paul first met
Book the private National Trust tour of the Beatles homes - one of the best things I have ever done!
Visit the Anglican and Catholic cathedrals (both amongst the world’s greatest), make sure you get on the roof of the Anglican for stunning views and plan a lunch stop at the Philharmonic Pub near the Catholic which is just superb!
Visit St Georges Hall - one of the finest buildings in England, it makes the Acropolis in Athens look unimpressive.
Make sure you see the pier Head and Cunard India and Liver buildings - superb architecture, maybe combine with ferry across the Mersey.
Take a trip to the Cavern Club and walk up Matthew Street - ideally go to the club at night and be amazed at the atmosphere.

I wouldn’t be worried about my car in the slightest and Liverpool is an absolute joy to drive around compared to London, Manchester, Cardiff and many other cities. Little traffic, easy to navigate and easy to park.

Best of all you will find LIverpool one of the friendliest cities you will ever visit. I absolutely love the city and you are frankly in one of the world’s great musical cities so savour being in the birthplace of the greatest rock band in history!

Putting in 5 was more than adequate compensation though … :wink:

Let’s hope they don’t call last orders on Silva - I think you are under-rating him. He should be given more time. Lots of it … :joy::joy::joy:

He will go today, he should never have been Everton’s manager his track record is awful so you have to blame the board for him. But you have to question the signings. OK our midfield is decimated with injuries but I’m not surprised as we signed 2 crocks. Delph was always injured at City that’s why we got him cheap and it’s happening here always injured( Kevin Sheedy Syndrome) When they paid £25 million for Gaban I checked up on his medical records and he is plagued with injuries in fact he got injured taking a shot in training (couldn’t make it up) and Gomes had his ankle broken against Spurs. We needed another centre half and at least two strikers but that didn’t happen no plan B after Zouma.
Everton are crap at the moment and they deserve the stick bit like Liverpool when they went through a period of sacking managers King Kenny, Souness, Hodson, Evans, Houlier I remember it well the red supporters feelings and constant moaning on Radio Merseyside. Give credit you’ve got a great manager and team, winning breeds confidence and Liverpool have plenty of that even when they play bad they still manage a result. Everton can’t string two winning games together and they need to get back to basics and become hard to beat. Allardyce knew that and as long as we won at home we were safe easy money for Sam. Now we can’t win at home hopefully with another manager he will install that but I’ve got my doubts with that squad.

Great post Jonathan, the city has moved on leaps and bounds in recent years. There has been a lot if investment. I don’t know anyone who has visited and not enjoyed it.

Plenty of excellent restaurants in Liverpool, if you are looking for a great pub meal try the Railway in Tithebarn Street they have a great menu and a fine drinks selection and very reasonably priced. :sunglasses:

I need to give that one a go then.

I’m not a Scouser so I find that that Sefton Park and especially Lark Lane are very pleasant.

Lots of great info here, so my wife and I thank you.

Are there any vegan restaurants in the city? And what’s the best Indian place?

I don’t want to jinx it, so let’s just say that we look forward to the trip – if Liverpool win the league.

For Indian I would recommend Mowgli, there’s one on Bold Street and I think the other is on Water Street. Originally it was only going to be a one outlet venture, but has proven so successful they are branching out all around the country. They are always full, testament to the quality of the food and service. I would advise to book if you intend to visit, although I’m not 100% sure if the one on Bold St takes bookings. Well worth a visit.
