Tour Route Highlights:
Liverpool is bursting with treasured landmarks and fun attractions just waiting to be discovered. There's no shortage of culture in a city that has been labelled the 'World Capital City of Pop', and it also maintains a strong link to the seas, with busy modern ports and museums dedicated to an ancient maritime legacy. On a City Explorer Liverpool bus tour you'll experience every angle and facet of this dynamic English metropolis. Professional tour guides are on all the buses delivering an informative and interesting commentary in English.
Travel down to the Albert Docks where you can visit the Beatles Story, a popular attraction chronicling the life, culture and music of the Beatles. If you don't mind heights, take a ride on the Wheel of Liverpool, a new 60 metre high ferris wheel located beside the Liverpool Echo Arena and Convention Centre. Also situated around the Albert Docks is the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the city's top souvenir shop, 'Impressions of Liverpool'.
Beyond the docks area you can undertake a bit of retail therapy in the shops along Lord Street, or later on at the extensive 'Liverpool One' mall. Continue on up Victoria street where another highlight of the Beatles Trail lies. The Cavern Club is where the band performed their first gigs to local audiences from a debut appearance in 1961 until impending stardom in 1963. In the heart of the town the tour will make stops at St Georges Hall, Walker Art Gallery, Metropolitan Cathedral and the Adelphi Hotel.
Be sure to check out the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and Chinatown, both located along Upper Duke Street. One should note that the Liverpool Chinatown was the first of its kind established in Europe. Other great attraction ideas include the Spaceport, the U-boat Story, and Liverpool War Museum.
