Culture and history
Liverpool's two cathedrals
One cathedral wasn't enough for Liverpool - the city boasts two! Liverpool Cathedral is a dizzying neo-Gothic monolith, an Anglican church built in the early 20th century with a 100-metre high tower. A mere 10-minute walk away is the Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral, juxtaposing nicely with its rival thanks to its muscular modernist style.
St George's Hall: a neo-Classical gem
The 19th-century St George’s Hall is an exceptional listed monument and widely deemed to be one of the world's most stunning examples of neo-Classical architecture. Step inside its sumptuous vaulted chamber, and join a guided tour to unveil the fascinating story behind St. George’s Hall.
The Merseyside Maritime Museum
This museum leads you back in time, deep into the history of Liverpool and its eventful past, from leading European port to WWII military base. The slickly designed Merseyside Maritime Museum turns back the clocks and explains the events that helped make Liverpool what it is today. Kids will love it! The International Slavery Museum is tucked away in the same building and is well worth a visit.

Some pubs have held on to all their faded, old-fashioned charm, while others dazzle in their contemporary vibe.

One of Liverpool's most popular clubs is the legendary Cavern Club. Located on Mathew Street, the venue once hosted close to 300 Beatles gigs! Bands from around the world still take to the stage here in this underground club, and if its local musicians and singers you're after, simply cross the road and step into the Cavern Pub.

Scouse stew was once a firm favourite with sailors and is something of a speciality in Liverpool and Merseyside. To make scouse, lamb or beef is left to simmer with potatoes, carrots, herbs and beer in a delicious, thick stew. It's served with red cabbage and beetroot.
Loved by Brits and Americans alike, cheesecake is a tasty dessert you'll want to try while you're over here. A pressed biscuit base is topped with a hearty layer of cream cheese for a refreshing, heavy-on-the-arteries dessert you'll find in hundreds of different guises in Liverpool: try salted caramel, lemon, chocolate, or variations using different American biscuits…
