Liverpool is home to the most listed buildings outside of London. The examples of Georgian and Victorian architecture are second to none.
The Cultural Quartera in William Brown Street a bordered by the magnificent St Georgea Hall, and houses the magnificent library and museum buildings.
Liverpool's illustrious past was bolstered by the emergence in the 1960's of 'The four Lads who Shook the World.' Many Beatles sites still exist and no visit to the city is complete without a visit to the replica of the place where it all began - The Cavern.
Liverpool's climate is typical of the United Kingdom; fairly mild yet highly unpredictable with a mixture of rainy, sunny, windy and cloudy days all year round. Summers, between June and August, are usually warm and sunny, while winters, between December and February, are cold and wet.
