England - Liverpool

Looking north into the city

On the banks of the Mersey a relatively new addition is that of the re-vitalised Albert Dock. Home of a number of small shops, cafes, restaurants as well as the Liverpool branch of the Tate, Albert Dock is a great place to wander in peace and calm away from the hustle of the city only a short distance away.

Chinatown is a small area with a few shops and quite a number of surprisingly trendy restaurants (not only Chinese).

The Beatles

If you are a Beatles fan then, obviously, you must visit the Cavern Club on Mathew Street. This is where the young Beatles played a number of their first gigs. You enter through a small, rather unassuming door on the street to descend quite a large number of stairs. Be aware that a cover charge may be requested.

Additionally, there are a number of other Beatles tours of the city taking in such sites as Strawberry Fields and the birth places of Lennon and McCartney (caution: sing along alert!).
