Liverpool - Royal Liver Building

City of Liverpool

Built on an illustrious heritage that stretches back 800 years, Liverpool has a global reputation for sport, music, architecture and a wealth of culture for students to explore.

Today the city is enjoying a resurgence, driven by its designation as European Capital of Culture in 2008.

With more museums, theatres, galleries and listed buildings than in any other region outside London, Liverpool's cultural wealth has long been a major attraction. 

Now one of the UK's top five retail destinations, Liverpool is where you can certainly shop until you drop at the new Liverpool One complex.

Boasting more number one hit singles than any other city, Liverpool's music scene could not be more eclectic, while its nightlife is vibrant, energetic and rivals that of any other UK city.

When eating out, visitors can choose from a host of restaurants, cafes and bars that cater for all tastes and budgets.

Home to two of Europe's most famous football teams - Liverpool and Everton FC -  the city's achievements in sport are internationally recognised.

Add to this a skyline with the same World Heritage Site status as The Pyramids at Giza and the Taj Mahal, Liverpool is truly the jewel in the crown of England's North West.
