 Liverpool City Centre 490 x 270

Pack your running shoes, an empty memory card for your camera and hit the streets of Liverpool. It’s a walking city and there’s plenty to see. From world class attractionsshopping and sport to legendary music and nightlife, the Liverpool city region is bursting with the widest choice of things to do.

  •  Think Liverpool, think The Beatles! – The city is officially the world’s capital of Pop, and the Fab Four, of course, its most famous offspring. There are plenty of Beatles attractions across the city, but don`t forget to pay a visit to The Cavern Club, the place where The Beatles musical identity was formed.
  • Derby Square – home to the imperious Queen Victoria Monument, is also the former site of Liverpool Castle. Unlike much of the surrounding area, this great bronze escaped the German bombs.
  • Fascinating Architecture – ranging from medieval Liverpool, Baroque masonries to The Chambers’ revolutionary build, there is certainly a lot to discover.
  • Eating Out – with every kind of restaurant, from fine dining to street food, but we recommend Camp and Furnace located at The Baltic Triangle. Just named by The Times newspaper as one of the 20 Coolest Places to eat In the UK.
  • Theatre Culture – Williamson Square is home to the Liverpool Playhouse which, along with its sister, the Everyman, puts on a solid programme of new and touring theatre. Round the corner is the Royal Court Theatre, an Art Deco music hall whose homegrown comedy nights are extremely popular.
  • The Old Dock – preserved under Liverpool ONE, a porthole allows you to peer down at the subterranean remains of the world’s first commercial wet dock. Tours run regularly.
  • Liverpool One – the popular shopping district offers you everything you need for a great day out. From shops to restaurants – a great place to indulge and unwind. The jewel in the crown of Liverpool One is the stunning Chavasse Park. Situated within five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens regularly plays host to a fabulous array of one-off and seasonal events.
  • Football Stadiums –. Liverpool is home to both Everton Football Club and Liverpool Football Club. Both team are steeped in sporting history and a very much part of the Liverpool community. Stadium tours operate all year round.
  • Cathedrals – Liverpool has not one but two world-class cathedrals and the Anglican one holds many world records: highest and heaviest peal of bells, highest Gothic arches, largest organ in the world, largest cathedral in Britain, fifth largest in the world.
  • Nightlife – A warm welcome by the Liverpool locals is always guaranteed. Their sense of fun and love of a great night out ensures that the bars in Liverpool are lively and the nightlife is legendary. It’s no wonder that Liverpool has been voted Britain’s Best Nightlife Destination.
  • Galleries-Tracey Ermin, Picasso, Hockney, Degas, Turner and Rembrandt are some of the amazing international art collections you can find in Liverpool, as well as other world-class public art.
  • View from the Top- View Liverpools fantastic skyline, admiring amoungst other beautiful sites the Liverpool Waterfront, Wirral and North Wales from the Radio City Tower Viewing Gallery.
  • Mersey FerriesCruise along the river and admire Liverpools iconic waterfront and heritage sites, as well as a ‘hop on hop off’ facility at each terminal to comine your trip with some other attractions such as Spaceport and U-boat Story.
  • Crosby Beach- Soke up some sun and enjoy the ‘Another Place’ sculptures of life size figures standing along the beach by Antony Gromley.
  • Safari- Feeling adventures? Have a day outing at Knowsley Safary, a family-favorite, with 700 wild animals to view.
  • Wheel of Liverpool- Enjoy a panaramic view of Liverpool, seeing famous landmarks while listening to some informative comentary.

Merseyrail puts on Extra Trains for

BT Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon and Half Marathon

Sunday 25 May

 

23 May: To accommodate the high volume of people coming into the city for the BT Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon and Half Marathon this Sunday, Merseyrail will run extra trains on both lines at the beginning of the day.

 

First trains will leave:

 

  • Southport at 6.58am
  • Hunts Cross at 7.06am
  • West Kirby at 7.01am
  • New Brighton at 6.53am
  • Hooton at 6.59am

 

All of these trains will stop at every station, with the exception of Lime Street and Moorfields. People travelling on the Wirral line are advised to get off at James Street station, which is an 8 minute walk from the start line in the Albert Dock. Northern line passengers should get off at Liverpool Central, 14 minutes’ walk away.

 

The normal Sunday timetable will start after these additional services, with trains stopping at Lime Street and Moorfields.

 

Trains on the additional services as well as those on the Sunday timetable will all have six carriages, meaning twice as much capacity as they usually do on Sundays.

 

Rob Griffiths, Race Director of the BT Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon, said: “We appreciate Merseyrail’s support and the addition of the early trains for our event on Sunday. Working with Merseyrail to offer extended train times is yet another way we hope to cater to our participants and help further grow our race. We know participants will value the assistance getting to the start line.”

BT Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Partners with Timex Ironman Tracker

New application allows competitors to share their race day progress with supporters

 

LIVERPOOL – 15 May, 2014 – BT Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon & ½ Marathon today announced a partnership with Timex, the leader in outdoor and sports performance timepieces. Through the partnership, participants will have access to the Timex® IRONMAN® Tracker, an application developed to enhance the race day experiences for runners and spectators worldwide.

The Timex® IRONMAN® Tracker will give competitors a unique running experience by allowing them to share their race day progress with supporters. The tracker enables runners to submit target finishing times and race day goals, and share them with Facebook friends before and during the race.  In addition, race day updates will be posted on the runner’s Facebook page and race supporters will have the ability to track the runner’s progress in real-time.

“We are excited about the opportunity to connect with more runners worldwide and especially at the BT Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon,” said Bart Van Schijndel, International Marketing Manager, Timex Sports. “We believe that the Timex IRONMAN® Tracker will significantly enhance runner and spectator race day engagement and will provide runners with an exciting new tool to track their training progress.”

The BT Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon and Half Marathon courses will start and finish along the waterfront, with live music featured along the race courses. Participants will also enjoy scenic views of the stunning docks, rich architecture, spectacular museums and historic commercial districts.  The race will begin at the Albert Dock, one of the most visited attractions in the UK and a World Heritage Site, and will pass through the celebrated Cavern Quarter, where The Beatles rose to prominence in the 1960s.

The marathon course also includes the famous Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs, along with the city’s beautiful parks including Stanley Park, Sefton Park and Otterspool Park. Event weekend will conclude with a finish line festival and a post-race concert at the Liverpool Echo Arena Complex.
