Welcome to Liverpool, development began in the early 1700s, grew into a great port trading with all parts of the World, Titanic started her journey from here and now cruise ships arrive and leave and of course great links to Ireland with ferries. Because of its trading it is very multi national and multi cultural, one of the few places left where you can be politically incorrect without offending anyone, the people are very friendly, have a great sense of humour and can laugh at and with themselves. Hope I have whetted your appetite to spend some time here (suggest 3 days), the Mersey Ferry co. run river cruises to Seacombe Spaceport and Woodside U-boat story, also they do a Manchester Ship Canal cruise to Salford Quay, home of the Lowry theatre, one of the Imperial War Museums, media city BBC, ITV studios and the new Coronation Street set and provide coaches for the return to Liverpool.

Hope you've got a taste of the humour and friendlyness of Liverpool, I've always had an affinity with the city, my first job back in the 60s, I worked with a scouser whose father was a ferry captain, whose sister was at university here (there are now 3 unis) had digs in the Old Swan area, typical weekend spent at the Philharmonic and back to hers for parties, those were the days !!!!
