Getting To Liverpool

You might be on a cruise around the British Isles where you are docking one day in the cultural city of Liverpool. The port is within a short walking distance from the main Liverpool tourist attractions. If like me, you are travelling by train there are a couple of stations to choose from, the main one being Liverpool Lime Street. If you are unsure where to go, don’t worry there are lots of taxis to take you to where you need to go. Also, it is very easy to get around either on foot, local bus; or perhaps the city sightseeing tour bus.

While there is a large variety of accommodation to choose from, I was drawn to the best – The Titanic Hotel. Named and inspired by the ship The Titanic. The spacious relaxing rooms with large windows are full of characterful pieces from copper top bedside cabinets to Titanic canvas wall hangings. The restaurant offers a large fresh buffet selection for breakfast and a scrumptious evening dinner menu. With so much style and an impeccable friendly service, why would you stay any place else!
