How to spend top weekend in Liverpool - ideas on extraordinary attractions and sites

Anglican Cathedral The favorite city of fans of the Beatles has many places where visitors can see models of the yellow submarine, including the airport of Liverpool. Naturally, a big share of excursions is also, in some way or another, connected with the famous band. However, that fact doesn’t make some landmarks less unique or interesting.
In Liverpool fans of gastronomic tourism will have to face a huge choice of elegant restaurants, cozy pubs and cafes that are always happy to serve guests and have prepared most unique meals … Open
If you crave for some unusual pastime, it’s high time to make an excursion in a landing vehicle The Yellow Duckmarine. The latter is something average between a usual tourist bus (without a doubt, a yellow colored one) and a boat. The unusual vehicles are usually docked near Albert Dock as that is the traditional starting point of an amazing bus excursion to the most attractive places of Liverpool. When returning to the dock, don’t be scared when the bus starts slowly moving into the water. That’s not the end of the excursion – the yellow bus miraculously turns into a motor boat, and passengers enjoy a refreshing ride to the docks.
If you consider yourself a fan of the Liverpool Four, don’t limit your excursion program to visits to popular museums and souvenir shops. There are many secret places in the city, the symbolic meaning and wondrous history of which are known only to most devoted fans of the band. Mathew Street, for example, is a “holy” place for music lovers as that is the location of old Cavern Club - the first concert venue of the Beatles. The club keeps working, but the entrance to it is currently located on another side of the street. Having visited the legendary place, do not hurry to leave the picturesque street as there is one more symbolic place nearby. That is The Grapes , the famous pub that was frequently visited by the band after concerts. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

If music related excursions seem to become boring, it’s time to do something different and head to Waterfront Street to explore its signature landmarks. The Three Graces architectural complex is worth visiting. One of the turrets of the building has the symbol of the city – the two Liver birds. They are a true talisman of the city. Many locals believe that if the birds leave the turrets, that would be the last day of Liverpool. Are you now scared about the destiny of the city? Then hurry up to Waterfront Street to prove yourself that the small birds are safely attached to the turrets.
Anglican Cathedral Liverpool suburbs are an ideal place for walking. Naturally, such a walk will not be deprived of some music discoveries. One of the high hills in the picturesque area is the location of a very unusual monument - Singing Ringing Tree . Well, the result of hard work of modern abstractionists can be only nominally called a tree. The giant sculpture made of metal and concrete is three meters high and only slightly resembles a tree. However, the main secret of the monument is not in its look. It does sing! The unusual structure of the monument includes numerous metal tubes that make sound with even the slightest blow of wind. These sounds miraculously combine into harmonious melodies. Is it hard to believe in that? Then visit the monument and see yourself that the repertoire of the singing tree is unique and endless.
The famous musical group The Beatles has remained the main symbol of the city for many years. One of the museums of the city is dedicated to the world-famous musicians. During an excursion … Open
Liverpool is not only about yellow submarines and music fans who wander on the streets, hoping to find rare vinyl records. It’s also about football fans wandering on the same streets. These fans have another “holy” place – the domestic Liverpool Arena. Every day, visitors are welcome to attend an excursion in the stadium. You will have an opportunity to visit sportsmen’s changing rooms, take a look at workout areas and even see press conferences with internationally famous coaches and sportsmen.
