Welcome to the second post of our Excursion Spotlight series – Liverpool!
Liverpool is the fifth largest Metropolitan in the UK and is home to two major football teams, Everton and Liverpool, and the popular English rock band ‘The Beatles’ who formed in the city in 1960.
Liverpool grew as a major port throughout the industrial revolution. Along with handling general cargo, freight, raw materials such as coal and cotton, the city merchants were involved in the Atlantic slave trade. In the 19th century, it was a major port of departure for Irish and English emigrants to North America. Liverpool was the port of registry of the ocean liner RMS Titanic.
During our excursion to Liverpool, students will have a chance to visit one or two of Liverpool’s famous museums for example the Museum of Liverpool, the Merseyside Maritime Museum or the Tate! There will be plenty of time in the afternoon to explore the city, including the Albert Dock, the cathedral and the huge shopping centre called Liverpool One!
