The Leaving of Liverpool

(Title dedicated to you, Chloe)

On our descent down south we started to see spots of snow on the side of the motorways. Not surprising with the amount of hailstorms we drove into!

Our first stop was Crosby (awesome name!!). I was so excited to see the Antony Gormley statues on the beach. I was really hoping that we’d get there for low tide but alas the stormy waves were already in. ‘Another Place’ is still an incredible installation no matter the tide. I truly found it eerily beautiful and if the weather had been friendlier I would have stayed for hours.

Our hotel in Liverpool is directly opposite Albert Dock. We headed onto Pierhead first of all to take the seriously cheesy tourist snap of the Fab Four.

Then we needed to shelter from the abysmal weather and took refuge in the Museum of Liverpool. I thought we’d be in there all of half an hour yet two hours later we stumbled out into dusk (and more rain!).

We also managed to take a look around the Walker Art Gallery; I particularly enjoyed the Zoo Logic exhibition by Mark Leckey.

Just next door was the World Museum so we also ‘popped’ in there to see all floor of exhibits including an aquarium, bug house and planetarium!

Liverpool has been a fascinating mix of architecture, and really does hold some fascinating cultural hot spots. We only scraped the surface but in the future we’ll definitely come back to discover more.
