Liverpool Cathedral and the Hope Street Quarter
Stretching from the Metropolitan (Roman Catholic) Cathedral to this Anglican Cathedral, this famous Liverpool street is packed full of world-class culture, food and drink. Being home to two Universities, hotels, bars, restaurants, theatres and the Royal Philharmonic Hall gives it a very special atmosphere – and a ‘must see’ as Liverpool’s thriving ‘uptown' area.
