City breaks in Liverpool

City breaks in Liverpool

City breaks in Liverpool: the city that broke the mould

Liverpool has always been a little bit different. Ask any Brit – or anyone else for that matter – what the city means to them, and they’ll probably mention the Beatles and Liverpool FC. Delve a little deeper, and they might remember that the Beatles were only the most famous of the bands behind the Mersey Beat. And that the Reds have a fierce city rivalry with the Toffees, or Everton FC. Liverpool has a rich and varied culture. One that’s firmly rooted in its identity as a northern, working class city. But also capacious enough to include many other influences.

A scouse melting pot

According to legend, being a port city meant Liverpudlians were the first to get hold of the latest blues and soul records from the USA in the 1950s and 60s. The city’s musicians were quick to absorb these musical influences before coming out with their own unique sound. Liverpool also has a strong Irish heritage, which explains why it famously has two cathedrals – one Catholic and one Protestant. (Architecture buffs can have fun comparing the two very different styles.)

The Liver Building, the Albert Dock, the ferry across the Mersey: there are many unique physical landmarks that help make Liverpool what it is. But it’s the city’s people, their distinctive accent and above all their celebrated sense of humour that really make Liverpool different. What other city’s people would nickname themselves after their favourite meat and vegetable stew? There’s no one quite like Scousers.

The funniest city in England?

So no wonder Liverpool is famous for its comedy scene. From the legendary Sir Ken Dodd to the more contemporary John Bishop, Liverpool has produced more than its fair share of comedians over the years. Stan Boardman, Tom O’Connor, Freddie Starr, Les Dennis, Alexei Sayle, Lily Savage, Jack Ryan, Leanne Campbell. You can date the average Brit by the names that conjure a smile, but Liverpool produced them all.

Visitors to Liverpool today can enjoy comedy clubs along with the rest of Liverpool’s legendary nightlife. From bars and restaurants to live gigs and nightclubs, the city has it all. After all, this is the city that invented Bongo’s Bingo. If you haven’t tried it, you’re in for a treat. There is also an abundance of choice when it comes to shopping. Whether you’re looking for food, fashion or something a little quirkier, you’re sure to find it in Liverpool.

Spoilt for choice in Liverpool

Then, of course, there’s the football, with a choice of two Premiership giants. And for golf fans, the Royal Liverpool. The famous course, which hosts the British Open again in 2023, is just across the Mersey in Wirral. And there’s plenty of high culture to go with the pop. From the Walker Art Gallery to the Liverpool Phil.

All this makes Liverpool ideal for a city break at any time of year. To seal the deal, Residential Estates have a suite of holiday apartments in the historic Walton building. This handsome art deco block began life as a commercial property but has been redeveloped into stylish apartments. Check out the options. And start planning your Liverpool city break.
