    A famous stadium and an incredible sensation to hear "you never walk alone" sang by the Liverpool fans.

    There are some very nice places here, such as Lunya tapas restaurant, Roly's Fudge Pantry, the Beatles Story, and many other shops and cafés. Also, the view is splendid.

    I last visited the cathedral several decades ago, but did not then rate it very highly.
    Perhaps my tastes have changed ….. or my powers of discernment have become more refined. In any event, I found the interior of the cathedral imposing, but simultaneously welcoming and friendly – which, I suppose, is everything that a cathedral should be.
    Pre-COVID, one of my last overseas trips was to Albi in France, where a large, impressive, medieval cathedral dominates the city centre. Liverpool’s Anglican cathedral reminded me in many ways of Albi’s cathedral – but the Liverpudlian edifice exuded a warmth and sense of communality that the French equivalent lacked (understandably so, since it was built both as a fortress and a demonstration of Catholic strength during the French religious wars).
    The architecture of this Liverpool cathedral has a timeless appeal, which had echoes of some of the great cathedrals of mainland Europe. Particularly innovative, it seemed to me, was the provision of a pleasing café which extended into the central part of the building. That, I think, is reflective of inclusive thinking – symbolic of how religion can be incorporated into everyday modern life – “of the people, and for the people” (and I say this as a non-religious person myself). I enjoyed our visit and – should I ever come to Liverpool again – I will do my best to pay a return visit … and perhaps even enjoy a meal in the café!

    A nice statue of the Beatles. One of my best bands. I like to see the statue up close. They are quite big.

    An excellent museum, especially for anyone who has, or has had, relatives that are/were sailors. The items were well displayed, the exhibits so interesting and the museum so large that we underestimated the time that we would need to get round and we had to return the following day. The presentation on the second day that we went was about the role of the Wrens during the second world war. Delivered by an actor in uniform playing one of those Wrens it was well worth seeing.

    Like the Curate's Egg it's good in parts. Wow factor on entering, but the cafe at the entrance is shut up and the library assistant I asked had no idea when it would reopen and wasn't very interested in helping me. She confirmed there was no coffee machine. Unbelievable for such a large library. The fiction area was surprisingly small, the Reading Room superb with a wonderful atmosphere, the Children's Library was vast and unappealing, the 50+ computers in the IT area were being well used, the non-fiction looked well stocked (especially Music) and the Archives floor also looked appealing. The roof terrace was closed to the surprise of the assistant on the floor below who went to find out the reason for this and was told it was because of 'security issues'. Overall this library could do better.

    As a visitor to Liverpool in search of Liverpool One just look for St. John's Beacon. It's over 450 ft tall and can be seen for miles. Closer it reads Radi City. For £7 you can take the lift up to the viewing area and see for miles. Unfortunately it was cloudy, wet and windy on our visit so passed on it. Next time.

    Has always been a favourite museum to visit as it has 5 floors full of interesting exhibits and a 'bit of everything' - ancient Egypt, dinosaurs, natural history, a bug house and aquarium, space and time exhibit.

    Once again, it was an interesting, educational visit and a nice way to spend a couple of hours during our day trip to Liverpool, however, this time it felt like it was lacking something - previously when we have visited, there has been music on in the world cultures and ancient Egyptian exhibits which helps add to the atmospheric experience and there was a lot more interactive ness in the natural history exhibit. The skulls of different animals in glass cabinets didn't have any information as to which animal they belonged to so this would've been helpful to add.

    The staff were all absolutely wonderful though, including the lovely staff on the front desk who were welcoming and patient, there were a couple of staff distributed between the floors who were helpful and engaging and finally the staff in the gift shop who were also very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the local area.

    The museum is located close to Liverpool lime Street station and a short 15 min walk from james Street station and the Albert Docks, it is free to enter however it is encouraged to provide a donation if you can or buy something in the gift shop to support the museum and help keep them open to the public.

    As a local, come rain hail or shine I can never ever tire of my regular walks past the Albert Dock down to the Pier Head. It's good for the soul. The three graces standing proudly, the sea air from the Mersey and centuries of history all around you. Restaurants, cafes, the Maritime museum, the Museum of Liverpool, the British Music Experience, the Tate gallery, historical statues, the Ferries, huge cruise ships etc. The museums, are magnificent and free to all. Grab a coffee, stop for a while, and look up at the detail in the wonderful architecture.

    Arranged as a surprise for the young person I support within my role as a support worker. He was so excited and he thoroughly enjoyed it. He needs to use a wheelchair and every effort was made, by the Goodson Park staff, that he experienced the full experience. The staff were very accommodating and kind and made sure he had a great time. The staff are very knowledgeable and were great story tellers, kept everyone’s attention. Lots of photo opportunities and we never felt rushed to get on with the tour. Mark Higgins, a retired Everton captain was there to chaperone everyone around the tour, he had some great antidotes about his time as a player, he was also extremely thoughtful towards the young person I was supporting in the trip. I am actually a Liverpool supporter and I will still highly recommend this tour. Great job guys x

    Great location, quick service. Went for a staff night out and was pleased. I did feel a bit like a babysitter, but that can't be helped these days haha. Pints were fresh and reasonably priced.
