You can see some of the new modern architecture with the famous Royal Liver Building in the centre. On the far right is Museum of Liverpool which I still haven’t had a chance to explore inside. It had been many years since I last visited Liverpool. Knowing I wanted to return I also knew that parking in the city centre was expensive. One of the best ways to get into Liverpool is to take the ferry. Parking up at the free Seacombe Car Park it was a two minute walk from the car onto the ferry. The ferry only took 10 minutes to cross the river to the Liverpool Waterfront. This photograph was taken as we got back to the car in the mid afternoon looking east across the River Mersey.
The Beatles Statue Liverpool
This statue was one of the first things we saw when we got to Liverpool. Rather than driving into the city centre, we drove to Seacombe on the other side of the River. Free parking and a ten minute picturesque ferry across the River Mersey. We arrived in the heart of the waterfront. Getting off the ferry at Liverpool Pier Head Ferry Terminal . For those already in the city looking for this statue, it is at the end of Brunswick Street. This 1.2 tone bronze statue was sculpted by Andrew Edwards. The fab four are very detailed and a little larger than life size. We had to wait a few minutes for other tourists to have their photographs taken in front of the statue.
Detail of St. Luke’s Church Liverpool
This is a close up detail of the eat side of the “bombed out church” in Liverpool, at St. Luke’s Church. As you can see this window is completely open to the elements. The reason this church is a burnt out, roofless shell is that it was bombed in May 1941. Although you can’t go “inside”, the church grounds are open to the public and definitely worth a visit if you’re passing.
Red Boat Liverpool
On a recent day trip to Liverpool with Ben and Liz we went to the Tate art gallery at the Albert Docks. Although I have photographed Planet before I thought it was worth capturing this big red boat in Dukes Dock again. I still have little idea of what it is doing. I haven’t ever been on board but it has been there for years. I realise that it was probably once a light house boat but not sure what it does now. Is it really a bar as it says on the side?
