Liverpool Guide

The city of Liverpool is located in the north west of England, on the eastern shore of the Mersey Estuary. The city's diverse population, drawn from a wide range of nationalities, cultures and religions, particularly from Ireland have resulted in a city with a long and rich history. In 2007 the city celebrated its 800th anniversary and was also the European City of Culture in the same year, along with Stavanger in Norway. The city was also labelled the World Capital of Pop by Guinness World Records because of its world famous link with The Beatles and other groups from the Merseybeat era. Parts of the city have also been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites, in recognition of the city's rich heritage.

The Port of Liverpool, which is one of the United Kingdom's major ports, is spread over both shores of the River Mersey.
