Liverpool is home to Europe’s oldest Chinese community. So, it’s no surprise that you’ll find the best noodles in town here.

Centred on Mathew Street, this is the boisterous birthplace of the Merseybeat. Join the jamboree of Beatlemaniacs and ’60s nostalgists at the Cavern Club.

St George's Quarter
0.2 miles from city centre
This old Victorian hub seems stiff at first. Its numerous Neoclassical buildings are hard to tell apart. Yet the stoic columns of St George’s Hall stand out like Liverpool’s answer to the Parthenon.

Liverpool is a city of rapid growth, with an infectious enthusiasm for pop culture.
Formerly one of the UK’s most important trade and migration ports, the city's focal point is the old docks. Here, the contemporary Museum of Liverpool traces the city’s roots, while the Tate Liverpool gallery showcases modern art from across the globe. The Royal Albert Dock is known for its Liverpool ONE shopping centre and being the home of the Beatles Story museum. You can learn all about Liverpool’s most treasured musical quartet here, or take a magical mystery tour of all the places associated with the fab four. From childhood homes and schools to Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields, the city centre is full of sites that inspired some of their most memorable songs. And if that’s not enough, you could watch a band play at the legendary Cavern Club, where The Beatles often performed before they were famous.
For many, Liverpool is not only synonymous with music but also football. If you can find tickets, be sure to catch a game at Anfield – home to Liverpool FC – or failing that, take a tour of the club’s museum to learn about its historic achievements.
You could spend eight days a week here, as The Beatles say, and still find plenty of things to do and attractions to see, but a short break is all it takes to get a good grasp on this vibrant city.

We love the city Anfield is a must We eat at numerous establishments Walking this wonderful city is so easy however public transport is great Bars ,restaurants, football clubs ,theatre and shops
The city is vibrant and good restaurants and bars are easily available. The museums formed a big part of our day and we thoroughly enjoyed the diversity on display. The cost of entrance was voluntary so donations were always made but the amount is optional and to keep these going with such quality, cleanliness and staff helpfulness is a credit to the city. We covered what we wanted on this trip but will return to see more. The Cavern is a `must visit` but there are many other places to experience as well. We did not find a bad place to eat and the staff were always friendly. There are always toilet facilities available for tourists.
Lovely city with friendly people, I loved the site seeing, visiting the Cathedrals, Radio City tower, the tour buses were an absolute blast, the narrator was really amusing but also educational, it was the highlight of our visit and would highly recommend them to anyone visiting. Overall Liverpool is a beautiful city with so many FREE attractions
we had a great weekend in Liverpool. The locals are so friendly and helpful not at all miserable like some city. Everywhere we went they just want to help. NIce change The city is actually very clean and the old buildings are lovely. Looks like London but much nicer.
Great city with lots to do. The docks are always lovely to visit, plenty of museums and art exhibits there. Liverpool One shopping has a great selection of different stores and restaurants. China town - one of the oldest in Europe - wide selection of chinese restaurants - recommend North Garden, Mei mei or Mr Chilli... Two beautiful cathedrals worth visiting - totally different to each other.
It was a wonderful experience from the lovely stay at the Holiday inn with friendly staff, a wander around the shopping centre, to our visit to the famous cavern club and it was lovely having a wander around the Docks too... The night life in Liverpool is Fantabulous from wanting to just have a meal out the Weather spoons was great. or a good drink and lots of music, friendly people and I'd love to visit again :-)
