[Pixels of] Liverpool and Lambananas

Sunny and perfect. Liverpool greeted us with a smiling sun and the first sight which caught my eye was the Echo Wheel of Liverpool, all white and shiny.

We arrived in Liverpool by coach, as we were a part of a tour group organized by the International Society. The journey from Manchester was one hour long and green fields/blue skies accompanied us along the way.

We were first brought around the city for two hours by the bus. The tour guide took us to see most of the city – Town Hall, Queen Victoria statue, Museum, Library, Art Gallery, the 5th largest cathedral in the world, Penny Lane and where some of the Beatles band members lived and more. There were so much to see and do, I couldn’t properly wrap my head around them as the coach ride got me a little bit dizzy.

This is the ginormous cathedral that has the largest organ in Britain and 10,268 organ pipes!

After getting off the coach, we decided to have lunch at Spice Lounge, an awesome Indian cuisine restaurant on Albert Dock. The food was delicious and we were sad to hear that they only have 1 branch in Liverpool, none in Manchester.

After picking up the city map, we boarded the bus to Anfield to visit the Liverpool FC Stadium. It was 3.15 pm and we missed the last stadium tour. We cheered ourselves up by buying souvenirs and taking lots of pictures with the signage. Hehe.

We got back to the area around Albert Dock around 4 pm and we only had an hour left before the coach leaves for Manchester. We only managed to take pictures around the Liverpool Museum, Lambananas (big bright sculptures of a combination of lambs and bananas) and Albert Dock.

This stripey building below was where Titanic was registered. I don’t know what ‘registered’ means though. πŸ˜›

Liverpool is also all about the Beatles. This is a window display of a candy shop – the Beatles made from jelly beans!

I was quite disappointed that we didn’t get to explore most of the city on foot, I really hope to visit again one day!
