The birthplace of the legendary Fab Four and a designated Unesco World Heritage Site, Liverpool is one of the gems in the Northern cultural crown. The waterfront is a good place to start, and making our way through the city we are met with an impressive array of historic buildings.

The Liver Building, a Liverpool landmark, inspired another classic, the popular seventies TV show, The Liver Birds. The two Liver bird statutes perch proudly 300ft above the city.
