    The citadel - from where the Battle of the Atlantic was orchestrated is now open to the public with the secret basement facility just as it was back then. Entrance to Derby House is in Rumford Street.

    Have you been to the museum in Fort Perch Rock at New Brighton? They have a collection of WW2 'things' and pieces of aircraft that were shot down around Merseyside.. its small but packed with bits and pieces and very interesting. I think there's a small charge to get in.

    Not sights, but lots off WW2 Liverpool stories on the BBC site.

    BBC - WW2 People's War - Liverpool Category


    I am amazed that there is nothing in place to remember the Durning Road air raid shelter victims?
