Liverpool (A Coach Trip in Liverpool)
"Liverpool" is a Coach Trip devised and led by Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours, as part of his continuing programme of Guided Walks and excursions.
These trips are an enjoyable way of soaking up some Local History.
Colin will be giving a commentary as usual along the way.
The trip also features a Guided Walk around Liverpool, pointing out many places of interest, including Liverpool Cathedral (Anglican), Liverpool Cathedral (Catholic), the Royal Liver Building, the Cavern Club, Philharmonic Hall and Albert Dock.
Liverpool was a small place with a Norman castle until the 17th century, when the castle was destroyed during the Civil War. After that, it grew in importance as a port, gaining much prosperity from the notorious triangular slave trade.
Liverpool today is famous for many things. Probably best-known is the pop music connection. The Beatles of course were the most famous entertainers to come out of the city, but so did Gerry and the Pacemakers and Cilla Black, as well as, earlier, George Melly and Frankie Vaughan.
Liverpool is rich too in comedians. Ken Dodd is a native of the city, and so are Jimmy Tarbuck, Tom O'Connor and, earlier, Arthur Askey and Tommy Handley.
Liverpool has two top-class football teams, Liverpool and Everton, and it is where the Grand National is held.
Colin will be drawing on all this heritage and more and the visit to this outstanding city.
