Day 7–Liverpool

We caught an early train to Chester and then changed to get to Liverpool Lime Street (which turned out to underground – why oh why couldn’t we have gone to the part that’s above ground).

It was tipping down with rain. Since we decided we were going to take the bus tour we wandered around looking for the stop but couldn’t find it. So we went to the St George’s Hall and looked around their heritage centre – and got to see a court room from all angles until we could find someone to ask for directions.

Once we found out where the stop was we had to wait in the rain.


Once the bus turned up we opted to sit downstairs but the bus leaked and we got wet.

We decided to get off at China Town. – Other than the gate it seemed to just be Chinese restaurants that were all closed.


We then walked to the Anglican Cathedral but unfortunately Liverpool University had thousands of students there graduation so we couldn’t look around.


We headed back to the bus and went to the Albert Dock where we had lunch.


We got to see the Mersey.


We hit up the gift shop of the Tate Liverpool where I bought Todd a Mr Benn bookmark.


And since we were there we took pictures with the Royal Liver Building


We went back to the bus stop and got back on the tour. We hopped off in town and by accident we found the Cavern quarter. We found statues of the Beatles on a hotel.


And in the next alley was the Cavern Club. Now I’m not a huge Beatles fan but when in Liverpool…



We walked back towards the train station and then went to the World Museum where Todd photographed practically the whole museum.



We then caught the train back to Prestatyn. We went for a final dinner before going back to pack. It was still tipping down with rain.
