One of the many tour buses
Just as a little diversion from my posts about our trip to Scotland, today I'm inviting you for a tour around Albert Dock in Liverpool - that's where MWM and I went last Tuesday.
We arrived by coach, which dropped us off at Albert Dock about 11 a.m. so we went for a walk round before deciding where to have lunch.
This is the Piermaster's House, which is a mock up of an authentic 1940's house, so we went in to have a look......
and here's what was inside....
Here's a statue of Billy Fury -recording star with hits such as Halfway To Paradise/I'd Never Find Another You/Last Night Was Made For Love - remember him?
We had lunch at one of the lovely little restaurants and bistros surrounding the dock before going to the tourist attraction (well we were tourists for the day) The Beatles Story. We got some great photos so if you never get to visit it you'll know what you're missing.
To be honest we didn't need to go into The Beatles Story Exhibition as we actually lived through Beatlemania and both know the story by heart. Nevertheless, it was quite interesting to see the mock-ups of the Casbah and the Cavern and other genuine Beatles items that had been loaned to the exhibition by varioius people.
Emerging from the dark confines of the exhibition into the bright sunshine we had about 45 minutes to kill before meeting the coach for home so we sat in the sunshine enjoying a pint of IPA.
I hope you enjoyed Liverpool and will join me next week for Part 3 of our Scotland trip.
