With world-class museums, a legendary music scene, two major universities, and a fierce football rivalry, Liverpool challenges long-time cultural competitor Manchester in friendly opposition. A small tidal inlet with a big history, Liverpool oozes with an unwaveringly creative spirit. It is, after all, the hometown of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison.
