Just back from a fab weekend in Liverpool. Had a mate with me who was on his first visit - he's a confirmed southerner with all the usual preconceptions of Liverpool - and he appeared to really enjoy the weekend.
Just one thing that I thought let me down was the Ferry - we sailed at 11:00 on Sunday and sailed quite a way down river and the commentary went into great detail about New Brighton Baths, how long it took to fill the pool etc, all very interesting in a book but hardly riveting for the commentary, then when we left Woodside, Cammell Laird got the briefest mention, Tranmere was ignored completely and we shot across the river at speed.
Does anyone know if it was a tidal reason for concentrating on the New Brighton end of the river, or is this the usual route now?
p.s. Sunday Lunch in the new dining room in the Maritime Museum was very good indeed - recommended.
