Whitechapel, Paradise Street, Lord Street and Church Street are the four pedestrian streets of the historic center of Liverpool: this is where city life takes place regularly, including cafes and shops, shopping and walking.

3 - Catholic Cathedral

Located at the opposite end of Hope Street, the Catholic Cathedral of Christ the King it is completely different from its Anglican "colleague", although its construction was finished in the same year. Seen from the outside, the cathedral appears rather ugly, almost blasphemous in its recalling more of a nightclub than a place of worship, but the play of light that the windows give to its interiors, they will make you forgive the architect.

10 - Crosby Beach

Nobody goes to England to go to the beach, especially in the Liverpool area where the climate is harsh and the weather always windy. However at Crosby Beach you can admire theart installation by the English artist Antony Gormley: 100 iron men scattered over 2km of beach. Covered with sand, immersed in water, left to rust, these statues are the emblem of migrants who arrive daily on the coasts of Europe trying to escape from something terrible, hoping to survive. Visiting this place, especially in winter when the beach is not experienced, makes one reflect deeply on the drama of immigration.
