As a diehard Beatles fan who’d come to Liverpool to conduct as much Beatlesy business as I could, there really was only one place to stay. It just had to be the world’s only Beatles inspired hotel.

Travel Report: The Cavern Pub, Liverpool.

The Cavern Pub, Liverpool. May 2019. It was early evening when Steppers and I mooched onto Mathew street, the beating heart of Liverpool’s world famous Cavern Quarter.

Crosby Beach, Liverpool. May 2019. With so much to see and do in Liverpool, you can certainly forgive visitors for concentrating their efforts strictly on the sights in the city centre.

Travel Report: Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.

Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. May 2019. So this was one of CNN’s ugliest cathedrals in the world? This was the “hideous eyesore” that stands only as a personal insult to those who have to pray in it? This was the building that thousands of TripAdvisor moaners had ranted about to the point of near self-combustion? Hm, not […]
