Palazzo-style buildings topped with liver birds preside over the old docks, today's thriving super port. Liverpool has earned its accolades – a UNESCO World Heritage site listing and a national treasure pop band. This Merseyside city is bursting with ideas with four universities and a thriving knowledge economy. Step inside the iconic Three Graces dock buildings for meetings or walk between the waterfront convention centre and arena. Neo-classical halls and redbrick warehouses inspire blue-sky thinking in the National Museums. Corks pop at world-famous sporting venues Anfield football stadium and Aintree racecourse. On a Hard Day’s Night, trace The Beatles' story back to the Cavern Club for the city's rich musical heritage.
