Wednesday will see a long overdue trip to Liverpool to meet up with my son Chris and perhaps see one or two of the attractions of the place. Previous efforts to organise this trip have failed due to hospital scans, Chris’ university commitments and me being out of the country!
I have been before. Anfield. Goodison Park. A six-a-side venue somewhere in the Everton Valley, a failed job interview and the airport before business trips to Belfast. But despite having lived within an hour of the place nearly all my life I’ve never actually done any of the sights.
I’ve booked a £40 hotel room for use after Tuesday night’s Oldham game and will make a post-rush hour trip down the M62 to a location where my blue badge will get me free parking and we will take things from there.
I reckon a Cavern Club moment might be in order.

Yirss. Have a wander around the waterfront/Albert Dock, it’s brilliant.

Will my car still have wheels at the end of the day?

Also, if you’re up to climbing 108 stairs, the view at the top of the Anglican Cathedral is impressive. And if that’s too much of a climb it’s worth visiting anyway, it’s a spectacular building. And the Caledonian pub down the road is great.

So much to do and see in Liverpool (and less of the comments about car wheels!). Williamson tunnels are really interesting, Albert Dock for a mooch. If you’re in to the Beatles there is a good tour of all the haunts and of course the Beatle Museum at the Albert Dock. Philharmonic pub (including the toilets!) Lark Lane to eat and drink.
