Getting to Know Liverpool

Liverpool is one of the most distinctive cities in the UK – both physically and culturally. For students, it’s pretty much the ideal place: nice and small, which means you’ll have absolutely no problem getting around, ever; and what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in character (hence why it was named European Capital of Culture in 2008!).

Once you’ve been here a while, you’ll have figured out where your favourite areas are, like everyone does. To get you started though, here’s what we recommend checking out:

Museum of Liverpool - Waterfront museum allows you to explore Liverpool's fascinating & diverse history. Not great on a hangover but if you're new to the city, give it a go.

The Beatles Story - Award winning 'The Beatles Story' is the world's largest permanent exhibition devoted to the lives and times of The Beatles. One to put on the to-do-list!

Maritime Museum - Whether you want to have a nosey at objects from the Titanic or learn about the Port of Liverpool, the Maritime Museum has a range of culture.

Echo Arena - Echo Arena hosts some big named acts weekly, from comedy to live music. If you keep an eye on their website they often have student concession events.

News from Nowhere - This quirky bookshop sells every kind of book imaginable (that's a big old claim but we believe in them!) plus some world, folk and roots music.

Reid of Liverpool - Buying and selling old books, this eccentric bookshop is great for some hidden gems, classic and maybe even getting rid of a textbook or two!
