Jan. 25, 2012 - PRLog -- If you are a bit of culture vulture in the British Isles you are probably more used to thinking of places such as London, Oxford and Bath to fill your cultural needs. But spare a thought for Liverpool.

For the uninitiated, if someone were to mention Liverpool to them their immediate response might be to repeat the name in a very poor scouse accent and then say: “Isn’t that where the Beatles come from?”

Well Liverpool is so much more than that. True, it was where one of the most successful groups of all time were born, but did you know that the city is officially the World Capital of Pop?

As we’ve mentioned the Beatles, let’s stay with this theme for the moment because if you wanted to know more about the Fab Four then take a trip down to the Albert Dock where you can enjoy The Beatles Story, which includes memorabilia and insights from family and friends.

If that’s not what you are after, the city stages many music festivals throughout the year from the Summer Pops to the Mathew Street Festival. You can also hear classical music at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

If you are staying overnight for any reason there are many Hotels in Liverpool so you shouldn’t find yourself walking the streets.

Just don’t forget to check out the new Museum of Liverpool, which is the first national museum devoted to the history of a regional city. It lays claim to being the largest newly built museum to be constructed in the past 100 years.

If you want to see what’s outside the city there are many large parks, gardens and farms to explore. If you go across the Wirral Peninsular head towards the Hilbre Islands Local Nature Reserve at West Kirby.

In 2004 Liverpool became a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation World Heritage Site, in common with the likes of the Great Wall of China and Egypt’s Giza pyramids. It won the status because UNESCO felt it had an impressive waterfront that represents a ‘supreme example of a commercial port at the time of Britain’s greatest global significance.’

You want more? If city life gets a little too much for you on your visit, take a trip to nearby Crosby Beach. There you’ll find 100 life-sized statues strung along the beach looking out to sea.

These were created by Angel of the North sculptor Antony Gormley and the collective creation is called “Another Place”. Each of the sculptures are a rough cast of his own body and each stand around 6ft 2 ins. But buried in the sand, the iron sculptures stand on a three-metre plinth – some of which are visible as the sand is frequently removed by the sea from their feet leaving them towering over most people.

They were commissioned to symbolise the pain and sadness brought about by emigration, lost homes and distant homelands. When you are tired of walking along the beach at Crosby, just retire to the comfort of your Liverpool hotel, but don’t forget to brush the sand off first.
