|HOME||The sights of Liverpool|
|Liverpool's famous waterfront with the Three Graces has long been used to advertise the city, and the iconic Liver Birds are unique as a city emblem.|
|Recent years have witnessed a dramatic change to the vista which for so long has been dominated by the three graces but as high-rise buildings bring Liverpool into the Twentieth Century, those three will continue to provide an elegant focal point.|
|The best place to view Liverpool is from the Mersey Ferry and a return trip is a must for all visitors to this historic city.|
|Moving inland from the river, there are more grade 1 listed buildings than anywhere outside London, a reminder of the wealth in Victorian times when Liverpool was one of the worlds biggest ports. The buildings of the 'cultural quarter', St George's Hall, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool Museum City Library and the Sessions House are the most outstanding.|
|The most visible addition of the Twentieth Century is the St Johns Beacon, originally a vent for St Johns Market, with a revolving restaurant at the top. The restaurant closed many years ago when the mechanism became too expensive to maintain and terrorist attention by the IRA was feared.
Latterly it is the headquarters of Radio City, the local commercial radio programme, started in 1974.
|The Albert Dock with its associated buildings is a must for every visitor to Liverpool.
The area incorporates shops and retaurants, the Tate Gallery, Maritime Museum, and the Beatles Story among the many attractions.
|Liverpool is blessed with numerous Parks and open spaces, which were establised in Victorian times in order to provide recreation to the rich and an escape from drudgery for its citizens|
