Anyone know anything about Liverpool?

Booked to go there with my carer next week (Wednesday 29th), been Googling places to go and the Cavern sounds good, just a bit expensive and all the gigs are at night, we'd be there during the day.
We'll probably end up in Liverpool One, the big shopping centre but I wondered if anyone knew any good cheap amenities?

Re: Anyone know anything about Liverpool?

they have a ferry which IIRC crosses the murky, and I'm pretty sure that's it constitutes a free amenity
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Re: Anyone know anything about Liverpool?

The Ferry is quite good, especially if you stop off at the U-Boat Story.
St George's Hall is worth a look, and both Cathedrals (Anglican [Tower is definitely worth a visit if it is a good day, lots of steps though!], Catholic).
If you are into Museums there is the Museum of Liverpool and the Maritime Museum which are both worth a visit.
If it is art that you like, I can recommend the Tate, the Walker Art Gallery and the Victoria Gallery & Museum.
You wouldn't be able to cover all that in a day, but hopefully it will give you some ideas!

Why do you constantly quote posts unnecessarily?  You are always doing it and often told about it. Do you see?

Decided to take SWMBO to Blackpool the second time she visited UK. Drove through Liverpool on the way for a bit of sightseeing but was disappointed. We didn't have a lot of time so probably never got anywhere near the 'good' parts.
Never been there since.
