We're coming to Liverpool

Amazingly I've only ever been to Liverpool twice. Once in 1989 when Villa got hamered at Anfield and once in 1999 when we visited my cousin who lives in Blundell Sands.

So when I saw a kgb offer for two nights at the Devenshire House Hotel, Edge Lane, for £89, I though, Why not? I've checked the TA reviews and as ever they range from Dire to Fab. We don't care as long as the sheets are clean. At that price we aren't expecting the Ritz.

Weve booked and by a complete coincidence that's the day Viila are at Anfield again. I'm waiting for a suitable moment to tell Mrs Trickster. Aparently it's only a 20 min walk from the hotel to the ground. We get one dinner with the offer, so need a recomendation for the second night please. We like all types of food.

We want to do some sightseeing. I'm a Beatles aficianado. Like so many, they are the reason I took up the guitar and have been playing it (badly) ever since. How can we get immersed in all that stuff? What about the Docks.

We will have two full days plus the day we leave. So what are the must sees. We like everything.

I know the Cavern isn't the original one but hopefully there will be a good band on one of the nights.

Thanks in anticipation

Just one thing to add - you said that it's apparently only 20 mins walk from the hotel to Anfield Stadium, but it's more like double that. It's nearly two miles.

I thought that too, as the Devonshire House is on Edge Lane, just outside the City Centre, nowhere near Anfield, but I thought someone may know a short cut!!!!

From Edge Lane to Anfield Stadium: Beech St, Shiel Rd, Belmont Rd, Oakfield Rd. Fairly straightforward & should take approx 30 mins walking at a steady pace. No direct bus route from Edge Lane but taxi would only cost approx £6. Mersycabs on 0151 298 2222 are reliable.

You can get the 27 (Sheil Road Circular) bus from Holt Road just a couple of minutes walk from the Devonshire and that goes by the ground.
