Merseyside may not be the largest of the British counties but it more than makes up for its size in reputation. Encompassing the city of Liverpool along with the smaller towns of St Helens and Southport and over the river to The Wirral, Merseyside is a county rich in maritime, musical and sporting history. At the heart of Merseyside is the city of Liverpool, well-known throughout the world as the birthplace of The Beatles. Liverpool also boasts a significant maritime history and was once a major working dock. The city offers a wealth of sights and attractions to visitors, boasting the largest collection of museums and galleries outside of London. Home to the UK’s largest Cathedral, the Albert Dock, the Liver Building and countless landmarks connected to The Beatles, people flock in their millions to visit the city. Sport is also high on the agenda in Liverpool with two major football clubs Liverpool F.C. and Everton F.C. splitting opinion amongst the city’s dwellers. Along the coast is Southport, a lovely coastal resort with beautiful beaches and one of the oldest piers in the country. Also famous for top flight golf, Southport is a popular destination in the summertime in particular.
Merseyside is a superb county as far as afternoon tea is concerned too, with an abundance of great places in which to enjoy Britain’s most treasured of pastimes.
