It's hard not to be infected by a Liverpudlian's love for their own city.
For decades this was a hardscrabble town beset by all manner of social ills, but still the love endured, finding its expression in a renowned gallows wit and an obsession with football.
With the worst of times now firmly behind them, it's much easier to feel the love. The city's impressive cultural heritage, dating back to when Liverpool was Britain's second-most important city, is a source of justifiable pride to Scousers – as the locals are named, after Scouse, a fish-and-biscuit stew popular with sailors – but what really excites them is the ongoing program of urban regeneration that is transforming a once dilapidated city centre into one of the most pleasant cities in northern England.
A Football attraction
One of the most popular spectator sports in Liverpool is football. The best equipment in the city without a doubt is Liverpool FC, founded in 1892.
British Music Experience
Liverpool is proud to be the birthplace of the best band in the world, and Beatles fans making a pilgrimage to the city, you won't be disappointed!
The British Music Experience tells the story of British Music through costumes, instruments, performance and memorabilia. They've got outfits worn by artists from David Bowie to the X Factor finalists, musical instruments from Noel Gallagher to the Sex Pistols and memorabilia from the Beatles through to Adele. You can also try the vocal booth, dance the decades or play top guitars and drums. Whatever age you are, and whatever you are into, there is something here for you.
