May 7, 2013 - The Beatles Story

On Tuesday the 7th I had my pre-booked tickets for The Beatles Story right on Albert Dock. The only difficult part was waiting for them to open their doors. In the morning I went out to the riverside and took some photos of the Mersey River and the dock area. The Beatles Story was beyond anything I imagined. It is a self-guided tour that you walk through with headphones on listening to narration that takes you through the major events of the Beatles' history and career. The museum is underground, so it spreads out and seems to go on...

May 6, 2013 - Liverpool

On Monday May 6 I had to bid my friend Judy goodbye. I'm so glad we had a chance to meet, since we've been corresponding for years and years. I hopped on the train in Birmingham and spent approximately 2 hours traveling to my next stop - Liverpool. I arrived in the afternoon with enough time to get checked in to my hotel and get settled in. I took a cab from the train station to Albert Dock where my hotel was situated. After unpacking I took a stroll around Albert Dock and peeked into some of the shops. The hotel (Jurys Inn) was very nice...

Saturday, 20th October Liverpool/Lakes District/York photos https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152100593265707.900414.746395706&type=3 There is a big demonstration in London today, we are told streets will be closed off and traffic disrupted most of the day.

Tony takes a walk to see how far the bus stop is, we will be catching the bus...

Jun 23, 2012 - Beatle mania!!!

I reached the land of the Beatles! Liverpool! Took the train from Milton Keynes central to Liverpool lime street. When arrived at the train station we took a taxi to a mansion of a house, where we will be staying. We are staying with the "Beaver" family. The house looks like a classic English estate. White Stucco with dark wood trim in the exterior, and dark maple everything in the Interior. The house is about 100 years old. It's beautiful! Today we went to mostly everything. Took a peak at the cavern were the Beatles once played, as well...

Apr 30, 2012 - England - Chester & Liverpool

22nd April 2012 (Bed No 22) A two hour drive and we were in Chester one of England's beautiful historic cities, located in the North West of England. A visit to the information centre gave us lots of things to see and do. As we only had a few hours we decide to spend the time walking around the Chester Walls which are the most complete circuit of a Roman and Medieval defensive town wall in England. The 2 mile circular walk around the historic city gave us a vivid reminder of what a medieval fortified town would have been like. Time had...

Apr 23, 2012 - Liverpool

Not a very successful day but I did satisfy my curiosity about Liverpool. I had to wait until 9:30am for the local library to open so I could send yesterday’s story which went off OK but I couldn’t get my e-mails, even through web-mail. Sometimes Bigpond is off the air for a while so I didn’t fuss too much. I’d thought of catching the train to Liverpool because I’d noticed there was a major station near the museum but the internet site said there was lots of parking in the city centre area so I decided to drive. I went the fastest way, down...

Apr 3, 2012 - Liverpool, England

We took a leisurely train ride from Glasgow, Scotland to Preston, England where another temple is located. We then took a taxi to the temple from the train station and the taxi driver talked me into using the taxi to continue our trip to Liverpool, supposedly around 30 miles away, when Julieann finished her temple visit. He said that it would cost around 55-60 pounds, which is around $90 USD. That was about the same we’d have to pay for a taxi back to Preston, a train to Liverpool and another taxi to the hotel so I told him to come back and...

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...
