Liverpool. Coming back to last week's trip to UK with some friends. As you might already know, we were based in Manchester for the whole week, so in our fourth day we decided it would be a nice idea to take 1 day-off on our travel routine and get to Liverpool, do some quick sightseeing, take some pictures and come back to Manchester on early evening.

I won't lie to you and said I wasn't really afraid we got lost around England or something. Once I get out of home and my comfort zone, I turn the most crazy, controller gal in the whole world. I must have my route, my maps and everything under control so everyone can get safe and sound back home.

So, the first thing to do was getting a Liverpool map. I downloaded this map from a Liverpool tourism page and kept it on my smartphone, which was really easy because I didn't carry extra folded papers and things with me. The second thing was getting our train tickets, which was way easier than I though. For less than 9£ we departed from Manchester Picadilly Station at 9:30am, arrived on about an hour to Liverpool Lime Street Station, and got back to Manchester the same evening at 9:30pm.

The image above and the image below were taken at Crosby Beach's "Another Place" installation which consist on iron human statues facing the sea scattered around 3.2km of beach. My dear best friend was really excited to visit the place as it is really near Liverpool, and although the weather wasn't as good as it should have been, we decided to go. And it was really worth the visit, and it's really easy to get there from Liverpool! It only took us about 20-25 minute train trip from Liverpool Central Station taking the red line train to "Southport" and stopping at "Blundellsands & Crosby" which is the nearest train station. Then take Blundellsands Road West all straight. (Believe in me because the indications in Google Maps will lead you further! I found this as the easiest way to get to Crosby Beach).

Of course, if there's something Liverpool is known as, is for being the place where The Beatles assembled. And The Cavern Club is one iconic place to visit, have a beer and listen to nice music and Beatles' covers performed live. It appears on the map I listed above, so you'll have no problem finding it because it's downtown Liverpool and a few steps closer to the rail stations and Lime Street Station as well.

Other places to visit and which may be enough for a 1 day trip to Liverpool may be, Lime Street Station itself (the old building above it which is now a hotel. It's antique and beautiful!), The Docks (with Tate Modern Liverpool, The Beatles Museum and Liverpool Museum on them) and all the commercial area near these.

And you? Have you ever been to Liverpool?
