11 Apr Weekend in Lovely Liverpool: Part 3 of 3 – Museum of Liverpool & The Fab 4 Cafe
Had I weighed myself before and after the Easter weekend, results would have definitely shown lose of weight somehow. My husband and I walked most of the time. I never realised the intensity of the walks until I got back home and felt differently when doing my usual squats, feeling a bit of pain here and there. I know it sounds like I am 80/90 years old but trust me Liverpool walks were a bit extreme.
The Liverpool Museum was a must-visit place.
Hundreds of people flocked in and out all day. I love people in general. I don’t want to sound like a sexist either but I like anything related to liberating women or elevating women in any positive way. What is more important is to acknowledge beneficiary contributions women make towards any societal growth. This display grabbed my attention.
What I liked most about the Liverpool Museum was how diverse the displays were. There were loads of humorous displays not to mention this one.
I was very excited touring around and had this beam of a smile from start to finish. It was like a kid that had been taken to a candy shop. Everything was surreal. I could literally pose with anything and everything.
The Pear Head in Liverpool is so jam-packed with all sorts of things to see, and do. I have never seen such a single place with so much complexity that just continues to draw one’s attention over and over again. Having mentioned all these other things, there was no way we could leave without paying honour to the unforgettable Beatles. The Beatles formed in Liverpool in 1960. The rock/pop band was active for barely a decade but their enormous popularity continues to touch millions of people worldwide. In 1990, The Beatles Story Museum was established on the historic Albert Dock. The Museum is all about the Beatles and their history.
The Beatles Wardrobe
At one point the Beatles were also famous for their colourful outfits. I thought I loved the colour but I don’t think I could have been a victorious contender. This picture left me in stitches laughing.
The Liverpool City Centre is completely Beatles orientated. To mark the 50th anniversary of their final hometown gig, in 2015, a huge bronze Beatles sculpture was unveiled on the Pear Head Square. I thought not grabbing a photo with the guys was going to be deemed rude, or disrespectful, or both.
There is also a café called The Fab 4 Café, named after the band.
A cup of coffee was a lovely treat while trying to energise for more walks and tours.
Given ‘Eight Days a Week’ there was no way we could absorb enough of Liverpool. Even if it was time for us to say ‘Goodbye’ it was more like Liverpool was just saying ‘Hello’ to us. ‘Hello Goodbye’ kind-of-feel as the Beatles sang. In all honesty, I think I would need a full week to take it all in and not just a weekend visit.
