R,C. Cathedral

Arrived in Liverpool at Lime Street rail station at 12 noon on a Monday. Walked to Hotel Aachan on the street called Mount Pleasant about 10 minutes. After checking in, left the hotel by the left for about 400 yards,there on the left was the Metropolitan Cathedral up a flight of steps,There may be a lift. To me its unusual because it is a circular building,well worth a visit. Entry is free.  Standing at the top of the steps on leaving, looking down Hope Street the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral can be seen in about half a mile.--- On route i passed the Philharmonic Dining Rooms Pub,i visted on return.---The Anglican Cathedral is the biggest in UK,entry is free, donations welcome. The tower can be climbed, not me.--- After a meal and pint at Philharmonic  Pub i walked in  to centre.

Anglican Cathedal
----Near Lime Street is the St Johns Beacon or Radio City tower, a lift gets to the top in 30 seconds. There is a admission  charge .The tower is 138 metres high. Marvelous views of the tourist attractons.After a stroll round the main streets ,that ended my first day in Liverpool.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Day 2 started after breakfast,with a walk down Hannover steet to the Pier Head, This is  where the Royal Liver Building with the iconic Liver birds on top is situated, the building was opened in 1911.The two fabled Liver Birds stand on top of the buiding legend has it if these two liver birds fly away , the city of Liverpool will cease. The birds have the names "Bella"  and "Bertie"  At the Pier Head is the ferry terminal.
Anfield Stadium.
  I took a Ferry ride of about 50 minutes on the famous" Ferry across the Mersey," you can disembark on the Wirral side, but i had a lot to fit in my day so stayed on board to return.---I walked to Liverpool One bus station on the main road, to catch bus 26 to Anfield ,a ride of about 2 miles. Arriving at Anfield Stadium, home of Liverpool FC, i purchased at ticket for the stadium tour.£20 adult, senior £15. The tour is at your own speed, i took about hour and half. Light refreshments available.  Returned by bus to Bus station. Walked across the main road to enter the Albert Dock. This is a Ships dock refurbished with hotels,,3 museums, restuarants,bars and Tate Art Gallery  and shops for tourists. Entry is free. Loads to see. After a pint of Lager i walked through some more centre streets before going back to hotel.

-- This was a lovely short Autumn break in Liverpool. There is a lot more to see and do. Example, The Beatles Story, Maritime Museum,  and Open Top Tour Bus. I only visited two pubs, but i did notice there does seem to a abundance of such places.  Most of the main street are pedestrianised. Liverpool has a good tourist signage, at most street junctions. The local people are friendly although i did find the local dialect hard to understand at times. A scouser is a person from Liverpool, and scouse is the dialect and accent of english.   Liverpool is a smart tidy place to visit. Trains go from Lime street rail station direct to London, Manchester,Leeds, York, Newcastle, Scarborough, Norwich etc.
4 famous men. The Beatles.
-Lime street station is Liverpool largest and was opend in the year 1836.-- National Express have coach services. ---Liverpool Airport is not far away, at John Lennon Airport.--- The big ferry goes to Ireland.---  I only had time to visit Liverpool F.C. but Everton F.C. can also be visited. Next time i visit Liverpool i may fit that in with a visit to the Cavern Club and Museum of Liverpool and bus rides to Southport and Chester.-----Liverpool is 219 miles from London, and 35 miles from Manchester also 95 miles to York.---Liverpool as all the large hotel chains like Ibis,Holiday Inn,Travelodge , etc .--- A bit of history, King John granted Liverpool its royal charter in 1207.---Both Liverpool FC and Everton FC are celebrating their 125 th Anniversary this year 2017.---The currency in United Kingdom is the British Pound.
