 Liverpool

Wednesday 20th/Friday 22nd July 2016


Wednesday

Morning departure with coffee/comfort stop enroute.
 
On our way to Liverpool we will visit  The National Memorial Arboretum, the UK's Centre of Remembrance which is  set in 150 acres of trees and gardens.  To visit all the Memorial's would take all day but this will give you a taster and you can visit some of the main ones.  It is very difficult to describe to anyone, people usually think of it as just a Forces Memorial but there are all different ones  and the reaction is usually  one of  amazement  of the site and Memorials.
 
Our hotel is the 4* Marriott Liverpool  City Centre.

Chance to use leisure facilities before dinner.
 
 
Thursday
 
In the morning we start with a guided tour, this will Orientate you with the area.
 
The afternoon is free to do as you wish. As there is so much to do and everyone has different tastes you can choose what you would like to do. Perhaps visit to one or both Cathedrals.  Located either end of the aptly-named Hope Street, Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King (Catholic) are vastly different in architecture but both majestic and beautiful. The Anglican Cathedral  has Tours of the Tower. (Please note the Tower is open to the public most days, it is accessible by two consecutive lifts followed by 108 stairs). The  Catholic Cathedral opened in 1967 with its modern, circular design, modern works of art and glorious multi-coloured windows.
Dating from the 1930s, the majestic barrel vaults of fine brickwork and granite pillars in the original Lutyens Crypt offer a sharp contrast in architectural styles.   
 
The Liverpool Queesnway Mersey Tunnel tour offers an experience and is an engineering masterpiece, a unique behind the scenes tour where you will be guided under the Mersey. 
 
The Beatles Story, a tour through the Beatles lives with fascinating  memorabilia of the Fab Four.
