Ever since winning the European Capital of Culture back in 2008, Liverpool has become a world class travel destination. Each year, thousands of visitors descend on the city, which in 2018 was voted the kindest city in the UK. The city is of course famous for its unique attractions, exciting events, world class sport and an unrivalled musical heritage.
Culture and heritage are at the heart of the city, which has the largest collection of museums and galleries outside of the capital. The Tate and International Slavery Museum can be found at the beautiful Albert Dock, while Liverpool Cathedral is currently home Luke Jerram’s 23ft replica of the Earth known as ‘Gaia’. Finally, The Beatles and world famous Cavern Club and Matthew Street area are perhaps the Liverpool’s biggest draw.
