Advantages: everything here and cheap
Disadvantages: Sometimes come across some idiotic scallies but you get them everywhere
Liverpool is a diverse city with a great deal to offer everyone.
Recently, the regeneration has encouraged more upmarket brands to open shops here, from Karen Millen, Gap and French connection Liverpool offers a wide variety of shopping needs. As a student city, we have some great shops which offer incredibly cheap clothes and other items all within one city. If you visit, allow one of the city centre tourist navigators to direct you to The Palace and Quigins which offer some great fashinalble and alternatively unique clothes and accessories at bargain prices. Liverpool has its own indoor market, St Johns which has some great shoe stores and clothes stores to suit everyone's pocket.
If, however, shopping isn't your thing then check out the great tourist attractions on offer. From the museum to the tate gallery or St Georges Hall, we have evrything that an art or history lover could want. The Albert Dock offers some excellent attractions as well as cafe bars and shops. On the way to the Albert Dock, you may come across Chavasse Park, which anually offers fairs and attractions, particularly towards Christmas.
Radio City, the local award winning radio station, put together its first Party at the Pier last year which was an excellent success featuring many bands like Westlife, Atomic Kitten, Adam Rickett and many huge acts. Also the annual Liverpool show provides great entertainment around May/June for three days of non-stop fun.
Lets not forget what Liverpool is really famous for, PARTYING. With famous clubs like Cream, Garlands and the Paradox, you are spoilt for choice. If you prefer a more homely pub then Liverpool has everything to offer from traditional pubs, Irish pubs and a huge amount of high street names like Yates' Square. Matthew Street, the origin of the Beatles offers a versatile range of pubs and clubs, but they do tend to become very busy on Saturday nights.
Finally, who could forget our sacred love for foot
ball. While you're here visit the two clubs or the football shops with a chance of seeing a few Pemiership idols or maybe even some of the cast of Brookside. I recommend trying the Arena Bar (Bold Street) or the Blue bar (Albert dock) for star spotting. I have often seen Louise, wife of Jamie Redknapp shopping in town so girls, keep your fellas on a leash!
Well what more can I say about this wonderful town other than visit here!!
