Tony淇In 1715 Liverpool built Britain's first dock, and the profits from the slave trade helped the city prosper quickly. By the end of the 18th century, Liverpool controlled 41% of the slave trade in Europe and 80% of the British slave trade. At the same time, it was also one of the main regions of the British Industrial Revolution. By the beginning of the nineteenth century, 40% of world trade passed through the Liverpool Dockyard. In 1830, the world's first passenger railway opened between Liverpool and Manchester. Liverpool’s population continued to increase rapidly, eventually becoming the second largest city in the UK.
Miss LexusAnfield Stadium-the home stadium of the Liverpool team, one of the 4 stadiums in this trip. It is also my husband’s favorite team. For the first time, I mainly asked for a photo. As a pseudo-fan, I was inexplicably excited when I saw the team's slogan "You'll never walk alone"! [fist]
Tony淇Liverpool Cathedral (Liverpool Cathedral), also known as Anglican Cathedral, is the largest in Britain and fifth in the world. It was built in 1901. The exterior of the church is not very eye-catching, but the interior space is extremely high and ethereal. And you can enter for free to listen to the hymns of the choir. You can also climb to the top of the tower to watch the sunset over Liverpool.

M43***62Spent an afternoon here with my family and loved it. Any aspect of the history of Liverpool you would wish to know about is covered in this huge venue. Well laid out exhibits which work well for kids and adults. The transport and social/health areas were particular highlights for us. Clean, well ventilated and never felt at all crowded so a good pick for an outing in these times of covid.
