LIVERPOOL - Through My Eyes

Liverpool, England

Liverpool is a great city, full of vibrancy and architectural diversity. I created this thread to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Royal Liver Building and the associated celebration on the waterfont. Liverpool has been my nearest major city for just over 18 years and i intend to show you some of the beautiful hidden streets that a tourist may pass as well as showcasing some of the city's well known spots and buildings. Hope you enjoy my picutres . . . .

Nice pictures, the architecture of Liverpool seems really great! I only wish that you could rotate all pictures straight...

I love Liverpool! It's one of the ultimate UK cities. The old and new architecture is amazing. Hopefully you'll show us around some of the other parts of the city rather than the usual cliché waterfront shots found on SSC

Liverpool Anglican Cathedral

This was the first time i have ever visited the Cathedral and I was stunned by the sheer size of it. It is the Longest Church building that is a Cathedral in the world (wikipedia ) and the total external length is 189 metres! It is regarded as one of the finest 20th century buildings (built between 1904 - 78) and not only is the interior beautiful but the view from the top is breathtaking . . .

liverpool is surprisingly nice. I lived there for two years some time ago. I remember before i moved there thinking it would be just another horrible northern city but in fact it is really rather nice and full of character (and also a fun place to live for eating and drinking as well as good musuems and lots of shops).

Only downside is that once you get outside of the city center there were many streets where every house was boarded up and it felt very unsafe. However they seem to be regenerating alot of the city so maybe those bad streets will get sorted out as well. I really look forward to visiting it agian sometime as it does seem to be becoming one of the best cities in the uk

Liverpool One
part one

This is an area of the city that was transformed with the help of the 2008 European Capital of Culture. It has greatly improved the general experience of visiting Liverpool and it just adds to the diversity of architecture in the city . . . .

Great pics, the waterfront and shopping streets look so clean and open. It changes my thoughts about Liverpool!

Liverpool has a fresh face this days.

Stunning architecture , especially the modern buildings. Being the European Capital of Culture was very good for Liverpool, it's a city that deserves to go upwards in every sense.

Very insightful photos into a city about which I don't know a lot. Looks like a great place and I was very surprised to see the extent of those Georgian terraces. Very nice!

Thanx for the comments. It is a good city to visit especially after the capital of culture with more hotels and places to visit. Alot of the streets have been cleaned or completley renewed recently which makes it a better place to wonder round I realise im quite lucky to have a city like this on my doorstep!
