Liverpool is, of course, most famous for being the city that spawned The Beatles. But there is much more to this fascinating city's past than just the Fab Four.
Liverpool was once a thriving port at the forefront of world trade, and today the city boasts some stunning architecture that is testament to its former wealth and status.
And having been subject to extensive immigration over several hundred years, Liverpool is one of the most ethnically mixed cities in the UK, giving it a colour and vibrancy all of its own.
Liverpool has recently undergone extensive restoration and rejuvenation, and as a result today it is one of England's most exciting and interesting cities.
With interesting museums, superb art galleries and world class tourist attractions, Liverpool is definitely worth a visit. Use our handy A-Z of Liverpool to find out more.
