FIVE DAY VISIT TO LIVERPOOL

In the past, overseas trips were alternated with ‘home’ destinations and it was felt 2018 would be an ideal year to visit Liverpool, with its wealth of historical and cultural places of interest.  

Travel is by luxury coach from Wimbledon, and we have arranged to break the journey for lunch and a guided tour of the factory and museum at the ‘World of Wedgwood’. On our return journey, we will be visiting Little Moreton Hall, the finest example of a timber-framed moated house in the country.

We will be staying for four nights at the four-star Mercure Atlantic Hotel which is centrally located and close to the Mersey. We will have a Blue Badge guide and, among other destinations, will be visiting the Liverpool cathedrals and Crosby Beach to see Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ with 100 cast iron figures.  Our itinerary includes the Tate Liverpool Gallery, home of the National Collection of Modern Art in the North of England, which is housed in the historic Albert Dock.   Works on display include Rodin’s ‘The Kiss’, ‘Little Dancer aged Fourteen’ by Degas, Picasso’s ‘Weeping Woman’, and the ‘Marilyn Diptych’ by Andy Warhol.  We will also be visiting the Walker and Lady Lever Art Galleries with their extensive collections of 18th, 19th and 20th century treasures, as well as Port Sunlight Village, and taking a River Mersey cruise.
