Mid morning we headed off to Euston to make our way by train to Liverpool for… EUROVISION!
Our train was nice and smooth and early afternoon we arrived at Lime Street Station to a sea of Eurovision people and signage everywhere. After checking in we wandered the town and soaked up the atmosphere.
I will fill you all in on what we got up to in Liverpool besides Eurovision. That was obviously our big event but we also made the most of our time.
Our first live show wasn’t until the Tuesday so we had a free day. What to do? What do you think… we got on board a Magical Mystery Tour bus and explored all the Beatles sites! We saw the childhood homes of the band, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields and of course The Cavern!
We also took the opportunity to visit the Brtish Music Experience, a museum like experience of British music from the 19040’s to now. I love seeing the Bowie, Kate love seeing Sam Ryder’s 2022 Eurovision outfit 😛
On Wednesday we took the opportunity to catch up with Kate’s other Aunt and Uncle. As they were from near Birmingham, we met halfway at Stoke on Trent. Conveniently it was also the home of Kate’s favourite Moorcroft Pottery so we took the opportunity to visit the factory before a nice afternoon tea with the family.
Thursday, before our Eurovision we visited the Tate. While the permanent collection just OK, the Turner exhibition they had on was great, in particularly the sketchbooks.
Anyway, that’s Liverpool! Eurovision will be another post 😉
