Day 2: Liverpool
Our first full day in Cheshire involved a visit to Liverpool, where the first stop was the Albert Dock. At the Pier Head we boarded the “ferry ‘cross the Mersey” for a circular cruise with views of Liverpool’s iconic waterfront. On disembarking we had some time to look around the city on our own before an open-top bus tour of the city with another excellent guide.
