Possibly off topic a bit. But a small tale about the Liverpool police.
When I was a student there, my car [minivan] was stolen from the flat forecourt overnight.
Reported it to the police.
Next night the police arrived. "We've found your van. We'll drive you round".
"We'll have to get some petrol because it ran out as we were driving it back to you".
On the drive to the pick-up; "The brakes on your van aren't very good are they. The thieves stopped by running into a lamppost":
Me, "There aren't any brakes. They totally failed and it was waiting to be pushed round to the garage". The garage was less than 50 yards away from the flat.
PC, Ok, hop in. Drive it back and we'll escort you in our car".
Which they did with me stopping using the handbrake.

Beatles story if so inclined.
Stay away from Mathew St for beers.. Head to bold street and surrounding area for cool vibes
Chinatown, especially wongs, good for cheap after midnight eats


Bold Street definitely for the food, Lebanese, Moroccan, Turkish, Italian, British, Indian, Persian, and plenty of others too.
Berry Street and across to Chinatown past the Blackie if Chinese food is your thing.

Architecture - walk around the older city centre streets (Bold Street, Dale Street, Lime Street, Renshaw Street, Berry Street and between the cathedrals; and just take in the craftmanship that went into so many of the old buildings.

Cheers, Holden. Noted a couple of those places from looking and other advice here. Going to be a busy few days.

Spoke to a girl at work who I don't see often and has family in Liverpool and visits a lot. She mentioned Mathew Street as noted a not by some, suppose an obvious, anyway Bold Street area looks better. Also around Sefton Park as noted by ol' Pet.

Sefton Park is itself worth a visit.
The area for the bars and eating places is Lark lane, which runs up to one of the entrances to Sefton Park.

Hillman mentioned it and don't mind an ale and certainly not a good cider :drinkers: so might call in here. Reviews are mixed and Trip Advisor comedy gold: https://www.redandwhitekop.com/forum/in ... c=309839.0 and https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractio ... gland.html

The landlord there, for me, is one of the reasons to go there. Could be highly amusing.
But what's the worst he can do?
Just walk up the street to the Roscoe Head if he kicks off.
Fly in the Loaf is a bit too cavernous.

But only if Modern Art is your bag.

There is a Da Vinci exhibition on at the Walker but I think that finishes soon.

Lark Lane, just south of the city centre and near Sefton Park has a great Bohemian feel to it.

Funky restaurants and bars.

In town, Jamie Oliver’s restaurant on Paradise Street is hard to beat.



Quoting one’s own posts is normally a sign of attention seeking on message boards but I am going to make an exception here.

Stone me.....Jamie Oliver’s restaurant chain has gone into liquidation or sommat.

After me recommending it :(
Alex Young, Howard Kendall, Andy King, Timmy Cahill, Dixie Dean and Mike Parry.....we'll never see the likes of them again.
