Liverpool Travel Video – Liverpool is 2008’s European Capital of Culture, and the city has spent the last few years getting ready for the ball. Handsome old buildings have had facials and brand-new ones shine spotlessly on the skyline. The once boarded-up warehouses of the city centre have been transformed into new shops, cafés and fancy apartments.
Impressive stuff, no doubt, but it’s the culture on offer that really has us buzzing.Liverpool Travel Video shows the city’s store of superb museums and top-class art galleries — all free — have put paid to the scurrilous rumour that Liverpool peaked with the Beatles: in 2004 the whole of the waterfront and docks was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site because there are more listed buildings here than in any other city in England except London. And then, of course, the nightlife: as rich and varied as you’d expect from a good northern city.
