Can I explore North West England from a midweek break in Liverpool?

The Beatles’ influence remains so widespread and profound that it continues to inspire pop and rock performers across the world today. Yet the Beatles could only have come out of Liverpool.

Why did Liverpool win the bid for 2008 European Capital of Culture & how has it benefited the city?

The results of the bid were announced in 2003 It was a huge surprise to Liverpool who beat five other hopefuls - Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Newcastle-Gateshead and Oxford.
