Liverpool - City Break

Fully Coordinated ~ Independent Travel ~ Bespoke Itineraries

In 1964 the Beatles took America by storm. Now is your chance to visit the city that made the Fab Four.

Liverpool isn’t just all about the Beatles however. There’s a long history between Liverpool and America (see below) which you can explore yourself with this incredible opportunity.

Liverpool has some fabulous buildings, a wealth of museums, two renowned football teams and not to mention a fascinating history. The Albert Dock offers a glimpse of Liverpool’s maritime history whilst you indulge in some shopping.

Liverpool’s two Cathedrals provide tranquillity in their contrasting styles and breathtaking views of the city can be seen from the majestic tower of the neo-Gothic Anglican Cathedral.

One of the lasting impressions visitors to Liverpool take away with them is how friendly and safe the city is. Just taking a casual walk in Liverpool you will be surrounded by its history. Strategically located on the River Mersey, Liverpool was once the second city of the British Empire after London.

Liverpool saw its fastest period of growth during the Georgian and Victorian periods and the legacy is the well preserved period buildings that are often used as sets for Hollywood films.

If football (soccer) is your passion, Liverpool Football Club’s new stadium is in the final stages of completion and there are tours of the ground and behind the scenes available.

It is only recently coming to light the role that Liverpool played during the American Civil War. If you are interested in this period of history then visiting Liverpool is a must. Thomas E Sebrell, when researching the war reported, “A majority of Civil War enthusiasts, including those in the United States, are unaware that the war actually ended in Liverpool on 6 November 1865 when the Confederate navy vessel Shenandoah surrendered to British authorities at what is now ‘The Pier’, seven months after Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered to his Union counterpart, Ulysses S. Grant, at Appomattox, Virginia, which is usually referred to as the end of the war.”

St George’s Hall, one of Liverpool’s grandest buildings hosted a five-day bazaar which raised £17,000 ($25,000 USD) to support Confederate Prisoners of War.

After long days exploring, there are some wonderful restaurants throughout the city where you can relax and enjoy food from a vast range of international menus, as well as trying some traditional Liverpool Scouse (a type of stew).

Liverpool is emerging from its industrial past as it is reborn as a top tourist destination.

Come to LIVERPOOL and DISCOVER...

World Museum

World Museum LiverpoolThe museum's planetarium, said to be the first in the UK outside London, opened in to the public on 22 May 1970.

The museum was one of a group of museums and galleries that were 'nationalised' on 1 April 1986 under the new organisation, National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside, now called National Museums Liverpool.

The museum's ground-breaking Natural History Centre opened on 1 August 1987. It was the first hands-on centre in a museum and has been imitated across the globe.

The museum was renamed World Museum on 29 April 2005 when a new aquarium, refurbished galleries and a new entrance were opened.

Today the museum is famous for its great collections, its history of innovation and the family-friendly experience that it offers. In 2010 visits to the museum totalled 748,065 making it one of the most popular and respected museums in the UK.


Walker Art Gallery

St. Georges Hall

St Georges Hall LiverpoolSt George's Hall is widely regarded as one of the finest neo-classical buildings in the world and is a Grade I listed building. It was reopened in 2007 by Prince Charles after a £23m refurbishment programme.

Built in the early 1800s as a space for music festivals and the Civil and Crown courts, the hall has always been at the heart of community life in the city.

Over 25,000 people gathered outside the Hall when John Lennon was killed, and in excess of 65,000 witnessed Liverpool's spectacular European Capital of Culture People’s Opening in 2008.

The foundation stone was laid in 1838 and it was built as a result of separate competitions to create a fitting space for the aspirational city to hold its music festivals and other assemblies and contains the vastly ornate Great Hall with its vaulted ceiling, Minton tiled floor, replete with maritime and civic symbolism and is also home to a massive pipe organ.

The Small Concert Room at the Northern elevation of the Hall has been described as the 'Albert Hall in miniature' and is circular in design with a proscenium arch stage and is flanked by caryatids, female sculptural figures which are designed to give the impression of supporting the fine lace work of the iron balconies.

Unusually, the Hall also houses the Crown and Civil Court which were working courts until the 1980’s when the Court Service moved to new premises in Derby Square.

The ground floor and basement levels also house holding cells for prisoners and the condemned cell.

St George’s Hall can lay claim to one of the oldest ventilation and air conditioning systems in the world, the workings of which can be seen in the lower basement level and throughout the Hall.


International Slavery Museum

International Slavery MuseumThe new museum opened on 23 August 2007. Not only was this the date of the annual Slavery Remembrance Day, but the year 2007 was particularly significant as it was the bicentenary of the abolition of the British slave trade.

The International Slavery Museum highlights the international importance of slavery, both in a historic and contemporary context. Working in partnership with other museums with a focus on freedom and enslavement, the museum provides opportunities for greater awareness and understanding of the legacy of slavery today.

It is located in Liverpool's Albert Dock, at the centre of a World Heritage site and only yards away from the dry docks where 18th century slave trading ships were repaired and fitted out.


Liverpool's First Dock

Liverpool ToursMerseyside Maritime Museum offers tours of Liverpool’s revolutionary old dock.

Discovered during excavations in 2001, after having been buried since 1826, the Old Dock is the world’s first commercial enclosed dock.

The tour gives us an insight into this unique location, which includes a bricked-up ancient tunnel in the dock wall. The tunnel is believed to be hundreds of years older than the dock.





The Beatles Tour

Beatles Cavern Club LiverpoolA ‘fun and fascinating’ tour of Beatles Liverpool, the tour takes you to key locations in the Fab­ Four’s upbringing, formation and rise to world wide super­stardom.

The tour shows us Beatles' childhood homes, schools, colleges and the places that inspired now legendary songs: Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields, accompanied by professional Beatles guides and the music of Liverpool’s best­-loved group.






Liverpool Cathedrals

Liverpool Cathedrals“If you want a Cathedral, we’ve got one to spare…” so goes the old Liverpool folk song. Located either end of the aptly-named Hope Street, Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King (Catholic) are vastly different in architecture but both majestic and beautiful. Halfway along Hope Street, outside Hope Street Hotel, two bronze statues represent the life and work of Bishop David Sheppard and Archbishop Derek Worlock. The two religious leaders, working together and with others, were a uniting force in the city during the less prosperous years of the 1970s and 1980s.

Liverpool Anglican Cathedral is Britain’s biggest Cathedral, and took 74 years to build from the foundation stone being laid in 1904. Sir John Betjeman called it ‘one of the great buildings of the world.’ The Cathedral has a full programme of events and hosts many conferences, large-scale gala dinners and functions. The Tower is open every day and boasts spectacular views across the city.

The Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King was originally conceived as a huge structure in a similar style to the neo-gothic Anglican Cathedral. Of that design, only the Lutyens Crypt was built and due to the pressures of war and rising costs, the design was abandoned. The current modern, circular Cathedral opened in 1967, and features modern works of art and glorious multi-coloured windows. The majestic barrel vaults of fine brickwork and granite pillars of the original Lutyens Crypt can still be seen.


Speke Hall

Speke Hall Liverpool Educational TourSpeke Hall is a rare Tudor timber-framed manor house in a most unusual setting on the banks of the River Mersey. Restored and brought back to life in the 19th century, it is a unique and beautiful mixture of Tudor simplicity and Victorian Arts and Crafts' aesthetics.

Built by the devout Catholic Norris family - keen to impress visitors with the grandeur of their home and in particular the magnificent Great Hall - this beautiful building has witnessed more than 400 years of turbulent history. From the Tudor period when a secret priest hole was an essential feature, to years of neglect and decay in the 18th and 19th centuries (including a spell when it was used as a cow shed) and then being dragged into the Victorian era of improvement and technology, the Hall has seen it all.

In the 21st century, Speke Hall and its surrounding estate now provide a real oasis from the hurly burly of modern life. As you come through the gates, relax, take a breath and enjoy all that this wonderful place has to offer. The Hall is surrounded by beautiful restored gardens and protected by a collar of woodland.


Liverpool Maritime Museum

Liverpool Maritime Museum - School TripMerseyside Maritime Museum is in the Albert Dock, Liverpool. It contains a variety of objects associated with the social and commercial history of the port of Liverpool. Highlights include ship models, maritime paintings, colourful posters from the golden age of liners and even some full sized vessels. There is also the major current exhibition Titanic and Liverpool: the untold story, which tells the story of Liverpool's links to the ill-fated liner. The Museum also houses the International Slavery Museum (on the third floor) as well as the Border Force's national museum: Seized! The Border and Customs uncovered (in the basement).




Museum of Liverpool

Museum of LiverpoolThe Museum of Liverpool reflects the city's global significance through its unique geography, history and culture. Visitors can explore how the port, its people, their creative and sporting history have shaped the city.

About 4* Titanic Hotel in Liverpool

Historical Liverpool Port:

Millions of bricks, thousands of panes of glass and hundreds of steel girders go to make up what was once part of the life blood of the thriving Port of Liverpool – the warehouses. Rum and tobacco imported from exotic locations were stored here in great brick buildings, the size the world had never seen before. The docks at the mouth of the Mersey River, including Stanley Dock, pioneered modern dock technology, transport and port management. Meanwhile Liverpool hummed with emigrants from all over Europe preparing to depart for a life in the New World. It quickly became the Second City of the Empire and trading through its docks and canals was at the core of this success.



Titanic Hotel and Rum Warehouse Conference Centre:

Titanic Hotel is part of the redevelopment of the historic Stanley Dock complex. It is located in what was the North Warehouse. The North Warehouse was built in 1846 and finished in 1854 and has been derelict for a number of years. Part of the North Warehouse was damaged in an air raid in World War 11. The Rum Warehouse which is attached to the North Warehouse and built in the 1950’s, has become a major new conference, banqueting and exhibition venue for 21st century Liverpool.

2nd Day

Liverpool Cathedrals, St Georges Hall and Albert Dock

Your day will begin with a visit inside the neo-gothic Anglican Cathedral with the opportunity to take in the spectacular panoramic views of Liverpool from the top of the tower. On fine days, it is interesting to explore the Victorian cemetery in the Cathedral Grounds which is a testament to the social history of Liverpool and there will be opportunities to take wax crayon rubbings from some of the more interesting grave stones if you wish.

In comparison, Liverpool's Metropolitan Cathedral offers a startling contrast with its circular construction which contains religious iconography in the form of modern works of art. On a sunny day the interior of the cathedral is lit with a glorious kaleidoscope of colours as the sunlight is reflected through the stained glass of the famous funnel.

Our tour of St George's Hall offers in insight into the grand and not-so-grand lives of Victorian Liverpool. St George's Hall is often considered to be one of the finest neo-classical buildings in the world. Designed as a concert hall and function rooms, the building also housed Liverpool's Crown and Civil Courts until 1984.

We will begin our tour visiting the holding cells and the condemned cell were prisoners were held before their appearance in court. We will follow in the steps of some infamous prisoners as we make our way to the Crown Court and experience standing in the dock of this Victorian Courtroom. After exploring the court and judges chambers, we will view the Grand Hall and small concert room which has been described as the "Albert Hall in miniature".

During the afternoon we will take a leisurely tour of the Albert Dock where there will be opportunities for shopping, visiting the Tate Art Gallery (home to the National Collection of Modern Art in the North) and recent displays have included canvases by early modern masters such as Picasso and Braque, Dada and surrealist pieces by Duchamp and Ernst. As you explore the Victorian architecture of the Albert Dock you will also have the opportunity to visit the Maritime Museum and International Slavery Museum.

The aim of the International Slavery Museum is to address ignorance and misunderstanding by looking at the deep and permanent impact of slavery and the slave trade on Africa, South America, the USA, the Caribbean and Western Europe. Thus increasing our understanding of the world around us.
