Liverpool overview and cultural heritage

During your comprehensive city tour see many of the highlights of this cosmopolitan city, home of the world famous Beatles. See Matthew street, immortalized by the Beatles and the Cavern Club. Travel out to Penny Lane and hear of the Beatles rise to fame.

Visit inside the vast Anglican cathedral, completed in 1978 after some 75 years of building. Built on an overwhelming scale, the red sandstone structure is the largest Anglican cathedral in Britain and the fifth largest in the world. The Cathedral abounds in superlatives: highest gothic arches, largest organ, heaviest ring of bells but the grandeur is balanced by a great sense of welcome and peace. The whole Cathedral is used imaginatively for many purposes - worship, concerts, exhibitions, recitals, displays.

Head to the Albert Dock, which is at the heart of Liverpool’s UNESCO world heritage Historic Waterfront and includes many different attractions. Albert Dock was an integral part of Liverpool’s once mighty stretch of dockside developments, the fine brick warehouses have now been lovingly restored and converted to create one of the largest heritage attractions.

Then, cross under the Mersey to the Wirral Peninsula for a visit to the quaint village of Port Sunlight. This attractive Victorian garden village was built in 1888 by William Hesketh Lever, later Lord Leverhulme, for the workers in his soap factory. Every house is built to a different design, and even today, they are still mainly occupied by descendants of the workers or their families. Visit the Heritage Centre which explains the unusual history of the village, and enjoy free time to explore at leisure.
