Exploring Liverpool: The City on the Coast

Liverpool is a city punching up. Not quite London but iconic in its British-ness, the seventh largest city in the UK is growing, offering tourists and locals alike a walkable city that is full of surprises. If you’re in London and are debating whether or not you should spend a few days in the northern part of the country, hop on a train and take the two hour ride to Lime Street Station. While we’ve briefly touched on Liverpool’s most intriguing qualities before, it’s a city worth revisiting. It offers you a reprieve from the bustle of the bigger British cities without asking you to compromise on culture, excitement, or style.
