Liverpool - 2 cathedrals, 3 parks and a street named Hope
13 people attending
7 places left
We will meet outside Liverpool Lime Street station and walk up to Hope Street which connects Liverpool's two cathedrals. If anyone is thirsty by then we could pop into the famous Grade I-listed Philharmonic pub with its ornate gentlemens' toilets.
We will start our visit to the three parks by entering St James' Gardens nestled under Giles Gilbert Scott's magnificent cathedral. On leaving the gardens we will make our way to Prince's Boulevard (a jewel in the crown of Liverpool 8 and a road steeped in the history of both Toxteth and the city as a whole) and then onto Prince's Park, whose designer would go on to create New York Central Park.
Then we will take in Sefton Park and the Palm House before getting the train to the city centre where we can visit the Pier Head for magnificent views across the River Mersey and time for an ice cream, drink or meal.
(Anyone with any energy left can walk through Otterspool Park and then walk along Otterspool Promenade to the Pier Head).
Don't worry if the event is full, put your name on the waiting list and you will get a place if someone cancels before the event.
