Today, Liverpool continues a centuries-old tradition of being a major British port thanks to its beckoning waterfront and docks. Naturally, its maritime activities created a notable commercial district that is now a recognized UNESCO World Heritage site. The nearby Cultural Quarter is worth a visit as well with countless landmarks, especially its renowned public buildings such as the Picton Reading Rooms. Liverpool is also famous for its world-ranking university and, for music lovers, as being the birthplace of the Beatles.
Farther inland is Britain's second largest city, Birmingham. The city offers historic attractions including St. Paul’s Square and the nearby Warwick Castle. Visitors can also go underwater among the turtles and sharks in the National SEA LIFE Centre’s glass tunnel, while motor lovers have a variety of options from Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich Assembly to the National Motorcycle Museum. For an outdoor break, take a stroll in Sutton Park, Europe’s largest urban park, or pedal a boat in Cannon Hill Park.
