Jan 26, 2012 - Liverpool, Ironbridge, and Nottingham

We decided to take advantage of the long MLK weekend so we dropped the boys off at the kennel and packed up the TT for a road trip. We decided to go West to Liverpool our first night where we had a great dinner (for English standards) at a restaurant called Room. The next day we slept in and were greeted by a rare sunny day so we decided to walk to the river front area and enjoy the sights on the River Mersey. After walking the length of the newly renovated waterfront area we went into the heart of downtown Liverpool to find the Cavern...

Away We Go

Jan 24, 2012 - Liverpool

Today took I the train 8.00 to Liverpool, the home city for The Beatles! The trip took a coulpe of hours before I arrived. I went to a restaurant and order a classic lunch, Fish and chips and garlicgarvy. This dish was better than those i ate at the Peace & Love Festival. More taste and the chip's where not drowning in oil. The city was stunning to just look at, and all these old houses made me weak. I have a weakness for old beautiful houses. The sun was warm and I walked through the town and looked me around. In a store I bought sweets,...

Sep 11, 2011 - Liverpool

Entry from Joan and Pat. Today we sent Steve off on his own and we went separately to explore Liverpool. NOTE TO TRAVELLERS. Do not believe what you read on the websites, even the official tourist ones. Started out at 10:00 to visit Senfton Gardens and the Palm House ( a Victorian Glass building) which the website said was open at 10:00. Wrong. The website and sign on the gates say 10:00 but it actually opens at noon. Kind gentleman call us a cab. Plan B go to Lark Lane which was advertised as within walking distance according to the...

Sep 10, 2011 - Wales to Chester and on to Liverpool - Day 8 and 9

.Writing for 2 days as WiFi was not strong enough in last night's hotel. For the middle of Wales we we travelled the most pleasant countryside of rolling hills, terraced fields and small hamlets. This is sheep country black and white. Crossing back just slightly into England near Shrewsbury we sought out the very tiny hamlet of Knockin Heath. Joan's great-great grandfather was a lay preacher at the local Methodist church, and after a series of narrow country lanes we found the church. Still in remarkable condition and still serving it was...

Jun 5, 2011 - Liverpool-->Belfast

Just a note about the previous entry. I don't know if I stressed enough just how lost in London we truly were. After further exploration the next day, though, we realized the point at which we were the *most* lost was literally a block away from the hotel. London: 1; Tourists: 0. All of the pictures from England are on a public album on my facebook, which can be accessed via this URL: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150323458063154.412854.621638153&l=8bd41a8736 So, the day begins with a plan of seeing Harrods (we managed to dally...

Sep 19, 2010 - Footie focus

I am pleased to announce that I have yet another tick on my bucket list. Yip this weekend was the big match Everton vrs New Castle. Wearing neutral colours I hopped of the Liverpool train station and followed the swarm of blue. With a consistent season of losses my hopes for Everton was reserved and rightly so. It was New Castle that scored the only goal. Still the atmosphere was definitely worth the experience even if is was only displaced in the very isolated visitor's box. Not only were the stands for team supporters separated- they had...

Sep 14, 2010 - Bus broke down

Today I woke up feeling a bit under the weather after the drinks I had the night before. However I soldied on and we joined the others downstairs for our usual full English breakfast. I’ve noticed that all of the breakfasts we’ve had so far have had similar food items, apart from the usual toast, fruit and cereal: fried eggs, scrambled eggs, cooked tomato, bacon, pork sausages, roast potatoes or hash browns, black pudding, croissants and dinner rolls. After breakfast, we boarded the coach and it was quite cold and wet. Apparently the coach...

Sep 12, 2010 - More from Lancashire

Well another week down. Hard to believe that I have been in Lancashire for a month. With rain forecast for the weekend I set myself up with DVD's and books. I did manage to venture to Liverpool to look at the Heritage Open Day. Unfortunately most places were not open as they required pre-booking. However I did enter the bluecoat which is a 300 year old building that is now home to sweet shops, gallery and restaurant. I braved the rain to the pier where the museum of international slavery and marine life. It was very well presented and...

Sep 5, 2010 - Blackpool let down, the party is in Ormskirk

Well with most kids back at school the weather remained sunny. Our trip to Blackpool was indeed a let down. I did not get to see Robbie Williams flick the switch for the illumination. In fact the first night of the annual event was a flop- everyone wondering aimlessly and not so much as a count down could be heard. The lights suddenly appeared followed swiftly by a mass exodus. Even the town was tacky, the neon didn't impress me much nor did the Mingers. However Blackpool is yet another experience that I can tick off. As for Ormskirk (the...

Aug 30, 2010 - Living it up in Liverpool- Bank Holiday

The working week has come and gone almost as quickly as the first and I am finding my way around easier but still need some more time to get familiar with systems. The NHS is getting a pretty hard battering at the moment- especially with media exposure. Still with a long bank holiday weekend things are looking up. I have regained by faith in the BBC, it's prediction of fine weather was mostly correct although didn't stop me from missing a downpour on the way to the train station. I really love trains- easy to negotiate and relaxing. In...

Aug 26, 2010 - Liverpool

When we rented a car and toured England, we skipped Liverpool. Except for the fact that the Beatles grew up here, we didn’t hear anything about this crumbling, commercial city that would make us want to visit. In the 1800’s Liverpool was a commercial powerhouse. Cunard and White Star had their headquarters here; many of the Titanic passengers boarded here. Many of the immigrants who went to the New World left from here. Much of the trade brought back from the New World was unloaded here. But as containerized ships took over, the loss of...
