Aberystwyth is a favourite holiday resort on the west coast of Wales with tall Victorian and Edwardian seafront buildings. The town is nestled between three hills and two beaches and hosts castle ruins, a pier and a busy harbour. Being a university town it has a vibrant atmosphere throughout the year and, with a wide promenade and beaches, it’s a perfect place to soak up the summer sun.
Curious About Liverpool is a great way to see the highlights of the city well as spotting all the hidden secrets over the course of two walks. Each takes between one and two hours and can be added together. The first starts at the Gardens of St John’s then pass the major museums ? the World Museum, the Walker Art Gallery amongst others ? then to St George’s Hall. See the home of the Beatles at Matthew Street then down the oldest street in the city to the Town Hall. The second walk covers from the Town Hall past the oldest churches and down to the river, past the new Beatles Museum to Albert Dock.
Curious About Liverpool gives a different glimpse into what makes Liverpool what it is today: the events, people and places that have shaped it.
Resident or just visiting, you are bound to spot things you’ve never noticed before. Walks take 1 to 2 hours each, though our suggestions for things to see and do along the way may distract you!
