Liverpool is a vibrant city known for its great cultural heritage. In fact, in 2008, the city bagged the title of the European Capital of Culture and in 2004 the city’s Pier Head Waterfront has been included in UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list. Liverpool’s impressive cultural heritage, which dates back to when it used to be one of Britain’s most significant cities, is a source of pride among the locals. But what really makes the city exciting is its on-going program of urban regeneration that is slowly transforming the once dilapidated city into one of the most beautiful cities in northern England.
The main railway station of Liverpool is the Liverpool Lime Street and is well-served by regular rail services coming from Birmingham New Street station, Leeds railway station, as well as the railway stations of Manchester, Newcastle, York, Nottingham, and London. The Liverpool Lime Street station is a popular attraction in itself, made from an impressive glass and steel, a perfect example of Victorian architecture.
With Liverpool’s long-standing history, it’s not surprising to find several historical sites and landmarks all over the city.

Liverpool is also home to a number of museums. Some of the most notable museums in the city are the Merseyside Maritime Museum, Western Approaches Museum, International Slavery Museum, and the World Museum.
