Kaplan City Guide: Liverpool

With its unique world-class sport offerings, exciting events and attractions and unrivalled musical heritage, Liverpool is a very popular destination for students to study in. Based on our student tips, we have put together your city guide to Liverpool.

First stop – Albert Dock

“I have many favorite places in Liverpool. But in particular, Albert Dock because of the museums and the atmosphere there.”

Albert Dock is one of Liverpool's most important tourist attractions and a vital component of the city's UNESCO World Heritage site, Maritime Mercantile City. This is a kingdom of concrete, bricks and metal. Today in Albert Dock you can find cafés, galleries and museums, and we would recommend in particular that you visit the Maritime Museum and the Museum of Slavery.

Albert Dock is an exciting focus point of Liverpool culture.

The Beatles Story

If you are fans of The Beatles you absolutely must visit the Cavern Club (the place where the Beatles went on stage for the first time and for another 291 times or so after that, if I remember correctly). There is also a Beatles Museum at the Albert Dock, a definite must-see.”

The award-winning Beatles Story is a unique visitor attraction that will transport you on an exciting and atmospheric journey into the life, times, culture and music of the Beatles. This place is a shrine for fans of the band, and just plain interesting and informative experience for everyone else.

Liverpool The Beatles
At the museum and beyond, the spirit of the Beatles follows you throughout the city.


Football spirit

“Those who choose Liverpool definitely do so for two reasons: The Beatles first and foremost, and then the Everton and Liverpool teams.”

Liverpool’s two teams – Everton and Liverpool – both play in the Premier League and are some of the most successful teams in the UK. It doesn’t matter whether you hear the famous Goodison Roar at Everton FC’s Goodison Park or sing one of the most recognisable football songs, “You Will Never Walk Alone”, at Liverpool FC’s Anfield – either way, you’ll become a part of football’s history!
