Quite possibly my favorite “minor” city in Europe
The Beatles Experience at Prince Albert Dock is very good. They do a nice job of walking you through the lives of the members.
Going North from the Albert Dock is the large and beautiful Museum of Liverpool. The entire top floor is (was still as of October?) dedicated to John’s life. There is an Imagine board where visitors write down things they hope for and attach them to the board. The board is probably 10 feet tall by 30 feet wide. There’s also his New York City shirt, lots of of the Beatles original songbooks and never before seen home videos. They have a small theatre that tells the story of Imagine and plays the video on loop. Very moving.
Just to the North of the Museum of Liverpool is a very nice statue of the Fab Four.
Enjoy Liverpool. It’s a hidden gem and it’s on the rebound. Very parochial city with a weird accent but they’re wonderful people. Reminds me a lot of Boston. And the views looking over the River Mersey are some of the best in England.
