Liverpool: Older areas

Building with vegetation taking over

This is not my last blog on this place but on my last day in this fine city I walked all day through lesser travelled areas and found sites more reminiscent of what people tend to think of as Liverpool. People, Britons too, who had not been to the city in a while, had told me not expect much, and they were referring to a city that was known for being poor and dirty. I don’t know the history of the change but obviously money funnelled into this city, and some modicum of great planning, to produce a metropolis that was designated
European Capital of Culture 2008.

And rightly so. This is remarkably tourist friendly city, apart from just the friendly folk, but blue signs everywhere pointing the way to the next usually free tourist attraction or historical site. A great walking city with no end of intriguing architecture. (I will, I hope, be back).
