Synopsis

Liverpool's unique history as an international port and a cultural melting pot has given it a character all its own. The city has produced music that conquered the world and is home to more historic buildings than any other British metropolis outside London. It features two magnificant cathedrals and many world famous museums. But beyond it's renowned exterior, is a labryinth of places hidden and unknown. This deliciously offbeat guidebook will lead you to a different Liverpool: down tunnels, up skyscrapers, and into secret bars, speciality shops, and disused factories. You will see Balenciaga trainers and football trophies, rolling bridges and disappearing statues, Liver Birds and suitcases, extravagent cakes and cast-iron churchs. Explore Britain's first mosque. Wander a roof garden of wild flowers, where different species bloom each month of the year. Marvel at the world's most expensive book or largest brick building (27 million bricks!). Relax in a hip tea bar with over 50 varieties of tea (loose leaf, naturally); or visit a place where you can drink Dandelion and Burdock with your fish and chips. Think you know Liverpool? Think again! Whether you're a first-time tourist, a repeat visitor, or a longtime local, prepare to be charmed and surprised by 111 eccentric and unusual places you'd never expect to find in the city best known for football and the Fab Four. Liverpool ist einzigartig: Seine Geschichte, der internationale Hafen, die zahlreichen historischen Gebäude und die Musik, die von hier aus die Welt eroberte, geben der Stadt diesen ganz eigenen Charakter. Zwei prachtvolle Kathedralen und viele weltberühmte Museen runden das Bild ab. Aber hinter dieser Fassade gibt es ein Labyrinth von versteckten und unbekannten Orten. Dieses Buch führt Sie zu ihnen: unter die Stadt, auf einen Wolkenkratzer, in geheime Bars, in besondere Geschäfte und in stillgelegte Fabriken. Entdecken Sie rollende Brücken, hippe Tee-Bars und verschwundene Statuen.
