I had a great time in Liverpool. Went to the Lion pub on chapel st a couple of times, the old hole in the wall and also ye Cracke and Philharmonic rooms. Also went to the Tate, museum of Liverpool and the Cains Brewery pub the Grapes (the brewery was great and i'm surprised the council don't make more of an attraction of it in a similar way to Guiness in Dublin.
Also visited both cathedrals but didn't go up the tower of the Anglican one which actually has a lift!! its a massive place.
Interestingly the tourist literature specified the only places in England which had a Protestant and Catholic cathedral were Liverpool and Norwich - Birmingham has both too - St Chads Catholic Cathedral and St Philips Anglican Cathedral.
Really loved the Georgian hope street area. Lots of little independent shops and bars.
Had a great time met lots of nice people, it reminds me a lot of Birmingham Liverpool, down to earth and friendly and up for a good night out.
Thanks for all the suggestions, looking forward to our next visit.
