Liverpool is home to two of the most well-known clubs in the history of English football – Liverpool FC and Everton FC – as well as the world-famous Grand National horse race and twelve of the finest golf courses in Britain. Visitors are spoilt for choice to indulge their sporting passions.

World renowned for its vibrant culture and heritage, it’s no surprise that Liverpool has more national museums and galleries than any UK city outside of London, including the Walker Art Gallery and the superb Tate Liverpool. Located on the beautiful Albert Dock, the Tate is nestled amongst exceptional bars, restaurants and independent shops.

Liverpool’s world-famous waterfront is a UNESCO world heritage site and home to the stunning Three Graces – Liver Building, Port of Liverpool and Cunard Building. Its endless coastline boasts numerous beaches and a trip along the River Mersey to view its stunning waterfront is highly recommended. It wouldn’t be Liverpool without talking music. Now a UNESCO City of Music, the city relishes its status and is proud of its most famous sons – The Beatles. The Beatles Story Museum, Mathew Street, The Cavern and even a trip to the band members’ childhood homes all available to visit.

When it comes to dining Liverpool has it all, from celebrity chef Paul Askew’s The Art School to the outstanding independent restaurants in the city’s Bold Street area to the quirky street food at the Baltic Market. And the shopping and leisure offer at Liverpool ONE is second to none.

But Liverpool is not just a fantastic place for leisure, it is a revolutionary city, a pioneer in research and innovation. Its people gave the world goal nets and the crossword, and plotted the cure to malaria and cholera along the way. Today the city boasts some of the very best talent across life sciences, technology and manufacturing. Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter is home to the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. It is fast becoming one of the world’s leading innovation districts and will soon be one of the largest academic and clinical campuses in the UK.

Liverpool is a city of dreamers and creators, music lovers and culture addicts, warm hearts and friendly faces. It is a city that looks out and welcomes the world.
