From here we go to the fascinating Merseyside Martitime Museum where you can learn all about the city’s prestigious maritime past.
Next its Albert Dock - Liverpool’s most visited attraction and home to Tate Liverpool, Beatles Story, and Slavery Museum as well as numerous speciality shops, bars and cafes.
This afternoon we visit Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral, one of the most amazing and largest in the world.
A cream tea in the Cathedral is included before we head back to our hotel.
Day 3: The Beatles old stomping ground. Many places in and around the city can lay claim to the most famous band in the world but none more so than the Matthew Street area and Cavern Club.
A local guide will give you a walking insight this morning and, with any luck, take you inside where it all started.
Next, we take you 400 ft up the Radio City Tower for a spectacular birds-eye view of the Liverpool Skyline and further beyond to the Wirral and north Wales.
This afternoon, we take you out of the city centre to one of the most important Tudor Houses in England. Speke Hall – a rare Tudor timber-framed manor house which has stood on the banks of the Mersey for some 400 years.
Look out for ‘Adam’ and ‘Eve’ in the Courtyard - two ancient yew trees said to be at least 500 years old.
Day 4: A day off for your driver but you won’t be bored! We’ve arranged for a city sightseeing Bus to call at our hotel – just for our group and whizz you around the city for an hour with a live commentary. Factual, fun and surprising!
You’ll have this afternoon to yourself – why not take a 10-minute walk along the Strand to Liverpool 1 – the City’s bang-up-to-date shopping complex full of glitz and glamour – any friendly Scouser will point you in the right direction.
Day 5: Times up in lovely, lively Liverpool and we head for home after breakfast.
