This great maritime city of the British Empire, Liverpool has grown from a local harbour to become the trading port of Britain. It is now one of the tourist hubs of the north of England and one of the UK's most iconic cities.

Liverpool and the surrounding region is undergoing many changes. Hotels are springing up in old abandoned warehouses, office blocks and new developments on the Waterfont are creating new leisure destinations.

We are currently into the beta testing of the website and still have some way to go before the structure of the site is complete. We welcome your help to point out any errors or broken links during this testing stage.
