- 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.
