It is difficult to think of Liverpool without the Beatles coming to mind. This happy association, however, is only a fraction of what the city has to offer. Its industrial heritage has been made a virtue, with Albert Dock now a place of recreation, its Tate Gallery and its Garden Festival, all bearing witness to the city's cultural dynamism. "L'pool" is also well placed for excursions into Wales, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.
