Pas Mèche in Liverpool

The highlights of our stay in Liverpool 

We have really enjoyed our ten days in Liverpool. It really is a great place to come by narrowboat. The moorings in Salthouse Dock are well designed and very convenient for sightseeing and access to the city.

Liverpool has so much for visitors to see and do that we won't go into massive detail but here are a few photo highlights from our time here:

Ferry across the Mersey (as in the song) to see New Brighton and a museum showing a salvaged WWII U-Boat.

Mersey Tunnel tour including the control room, ventilation system and getting a look out into the road tunnels themselves, as well as the tramway tunnel under the road level which was dug but has never been used.

Train ride north including going to see the 'Another Place' sculptures which are lifesize casts of the artist's body embedded in the beach. A little unnerving and we couldn't decide whether we liked them or not... perhaps this was too arty for us to appreciate.

All in all Salthouse Dock and Liverpool have been really enjoyable - it's a fantastic spot in the city and the Liverpool docks are a great example of city regeneration.

We're heading towards Manchester next but must first retrace our steps towards Wigan. We've had a great time in Liverpool but after 10 days moored up, we're ready to be on the move again.

Sundown at Salthouse Dock - we'll miss the views and the nice (temporary) boaters community here.
