Liverpool tourism day

Published on March 16th 2011.

Liverpool tourism day

NO mention of Liverpool would be complete without football and the Beatles and a whole day of activities celebrating “the best Liverpool has to offer” is to take place to celebrate British Tourism Week, including the chance to win a free ride of the famous Magical Mystery Tour bus.

The UEFA Cup will be present, historian Frank Carlyle will be signing copies of his DVDs, there will be a talk about Liverpool wit, courtesy of the The Comedy Trust, and free scouse all round at the 08 Place on Thursday 17 March.

Tourist chiefs are offering free tickets on the Magical Mystery Tour bus as part of the day showcasing the city. The first 20 people to arrive at the 08 Place in Whitechapel, after it opens at 10am, will receive a ticket for the noon bus worth £14.95.

A storytelling session run by the Everyman and Playhouse, food taster sessions involving city restaurants Il Forno and Sapporo and a ukulele session with musician Paul Argent will also take place.

Live music, prize raffles and children's activities will also be available. The event begins at 10:30am and reaches its grand climax in the afternoon with…a Peter Grant book signing.

The Tourism Information Centre located at the Albert Dock is also celebrating tourism week with an event on the same day that includes guided tours, wine tasting, acoustic music and a Starbucks sample coffee. The first guided tour begins at 11am.

The British Tourism Week is a week-long series of events and is now in its fifth year.

Councillor Claire Wilner, Liverpool City Council’s assistant cabinet member for culture and tourism, said: “Tourism is so important to our local economy and this event is a chance for us to showcase some of the amazing experiences people can have in Liverpool.

“There’s so much to do and see in the city, it would be impossible to give a taster of everything in just one day- we’d need a whole year!”
