Last Saturday, my friend Lauren and I went on a day-trip to the lovely city of Liverpool (cue Day Tripper by The Beatles). Liverpool has a great atmosphere, it's different to any other city I've been to, and there's plenty to see and do - especially for someone like me who loves old, interesting buildings!
We took the train and it turned out to be a fairly curious experience... Lauren and I spent most of the time people watching, which was very entertaining!
My brother goes to university in Liverpool but before we met him, we did a spot of window shopping (of course!). We were both in a rather indecisive mood however and fell into a cycle of one of us saying, "I'm not sure whether to get this" and the other replying, "Well, we can always come back later!" :)
After we met up with Ed, our first stop was the docks (Albert Dock). It's admirable that so many original buildings and features remain at the docks - it's a very pretty area!
This is the Piermaster's House. Lauren's view was obstructed and she thought it said Piemaker's House! We found this incredibly amusing and spent a good few minutes creating piemaker scenarios.
|Oh hey guys|
Liverpool Maritime Museum has a Titanic exhibition (it's free!), and being a Titanic fanatic, I insisted that was had a quick mooch around. It was packed! I noticed that there were a lot of tourists in the city, probably partly due to The Beatles link!
Speaking of The Beatles, we had a speedy glance around The Beatles shop. We didn't buy anything - but we liked the ceiling!
