I currently find myself in Liverpool, UK; famous for producing The Beatles and more notably the "Scouse Brow" (if you don't know what this is, please get on Google and check it out - guaranteed laughs!).
Liverpool is a compact city but with loads packed in. Great shopping with all the high street favorites, LOADS of bars and restaurants, history, culture and how could I write about Liverpool without mentioning the infamous Lambananas.
In a nutshell I would say that if you find yourself travelling round the UK and fancy a city break then definitely consider visiting Liverpool.
For shopping you cannot go past L1 which also has great bars and restaurants to stop for a bite to eat and a tipple.
For a drink you have got to visit the Albert Dock, old school buildings with modern fresh interiors and plenty of space. Albert Dock is also home to the TATE Liverpool, so you know it's cool.
But the best way to see the city is to stroll around and stop anywhere that tickles your fancy and I am sure that plenty of places will!
