    Is Liverpool worth a visit (I am not a Beatles fanatic)....?

    Bob: "Is Liverpool worth a visit (I am not a Beatles fanatic)....?"

    No, nor am I.

    Well, I wouldn't fly all the way from where you live just to visit Liverpool. But if you're in the north of England for any length of time, then definitely yes. Liverpool has just been European City of Culture, and lots of cash was spent on it. Plus there's a big dockland regeneration project going on at the moment. Some of the built architecture is stunning -- Victorian-era brickwork at its monumental best. Then there's the museums and galleries: the Tate and the Walker are essentials.

    One of my clients has asked me to think about writing a magazine piece about the city's revival. I'll let you know if it goes ahead.

    I visited Liverpool years ago - the regeneration was started, but not complete - with my daughter, who was a huge Michael Owen fan. (We spent almost a whole day at Anfield..)

    I loved the city, though; it felt good. It was animated: stateliness and tradition and insightful innovation all whisked together...and sooo friendly!

    I'd love to go back. With my camera! :-)
