Liverpool

A little day trip to Liverpool. It was bitterly cold, but as we were walking around it did feel too bad.

Started off by looking around the Library. What a fascinating place. As you can see from the below. The old part of the building is a circular affair.

Not just the interior of the building is circular, the stairs are too, going up to the various levels. 

They even have a gaming room for those that are into computer games.

The the outside of the building is also the World Museum. The library part is that little door on the right.

Next we wandered into the St John’s Gardens.

Across from the Liverpool Lime Street station, is this building below. We liked all the columns, but not sure what building it is, I think it might be St George’s Hall.

The other side of the station was this colourful Crown Hotel.

We next walked down to the Albert Docks. So the next series of photos are from that area.

This old double-decker bus was converted into Diner. It looked like a fish ‘n’ chip place, where you can get your food from the counter downstairs, then go upstairs to eat it.

You can see the Liver Building here, which is beside Albert Dock.

There are padlocks all along the chains across Albert Docks. These are Love Locks:

A love lock is a padlock which people attach to a fence or bridge or other permanent structure to signify their love. These locks can be found all over the world and there are some at Liverpool’s Albert Dock. Locks have been added to the fences near the River Mersey decorating the chains with symbols of love. Many of them have been inscribed with messages and as you walk along, you notice beautiful and intricate padlock designs along with the with different dates such as when couples met, were engaged and married.

We walked into the Museum of Liverpool and saw these steam trains.

Heading back to the car, we had to walk to the Cavern Club, and see the status of Cilla Black outside.

This final image is one of irony. On the one side of the road is Ghoulies Haunted House and Bar, then on the other side, is an NHS Blood Bank with the sign “Give Blood”.
