1. Beatles Museum
Liverpool's most popular museum will leave any Beatles fan giddy. Here, you'll be able to enter an impressive full-size replica of the Cavern Club and the Abbey Road studio where the awesome foursome recorded their first singles. There's definitely a whole lot of memorabilia to see, like George Harrison's first ever guitar that's now worth 500,000 quid that will surely inspire fellow musicians and fans alike.
2. Speke Hall
Speke Hall is the epitome of an Elizabethan half-timbered hall filled with awe-worthy timbered and plastered rooms. Its aesthetics isn't the only feature that draws crowds, but its rich history as well. The house contains several "holes" where priests hid during the anti-Catholic 16th and 17th centuries. The diagonally patterned Tudor house built in the 1400's and what once was surrounded by thousands of acres of land is now only surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens.
3. Liverpool Cathedral
How can one miss visiting Britain's largest church AND the world's largest Anglican cathedral? And the Liverpool Cathedral is exactly just that and so much more. In fact, the central bell is the world's third largest with the world's highest and heaviest peal while the cathedral's organ and its 9,765 pipes is most likely the world's largest operational model. But this cathedral is not just about breaking records it is also home to a collection of artworks.
