If you're travelling to the
UK this year, then Liverpool is one city you should certainly consider
On the west coast of England,
Liverpool is famed worldwide for two major exports, music and Football.
Hailing from Liverpool the Beatles were arguably the greatest band the
world has ever known with a string of number 1's on both sides of the Atlantic,
the Beatlemania of the 1960's had not been seen before and not been repeated
since. Liverpool has 3 football teams but to dismay of Tranmere and Everton
it is Liverpool Football Club that is best known in the world as a result
of its all conquering team of the 1970's and 1980's which swept all before
it domestic and European competition.
grew into a city in the 19th & 20th century where its growth was fuelled
by its port which brought in the raw materials from across the empire which
fuelled the textile industries of Lancashire and Manchester and then exported
the finished products across the World. Like many of England's industrial
cities Liverpool suffered real decline in the 1970's and 1980's with its
once busy docks falling into virtually disuse. However in recent decades
the city decline has been reversed and the city centre revitalised. The
derelict docks have now become some of the most sought after accommodation
in the city.
