After coffee and cakes we set off under the Mersey, the ferry was not running due to the finish of the round the world yacht race, our eyes were firmly set on the football ground of the mighty Liverpool….. be rude not to.
We parked, which was free and made our way to the entrance to sign ourselves up for the tour which I have to say is well worth it the guides at various places are an asset to the club. The tour starts with the issuing of audio/visual devices that as you walk around give you information and history of the various locations you visit, first stop the top floor of the Main stand.
After climbing the stairs to the top only one places to go, all the way down to pitch side.
Wow what a pitch you could play snooker on it, onwards to the dressing rooms home and away,
Its was time to head to the press conference room and give our in depth tactical description of the tour,
It was a great tour and I just hope I have converted my Daughter Lily to be a Liverpool fan….but no she cant have a season ticket ;), we also paid for the museum which is also a must Steven Gerrard has donated a wealth of memorabilia.
The rest of the museum has loads of vintage football memorabilia and cups
Our time was coming to an end at Anfield a visit to the club shop, tops and other merchandised purchased it was with a sad heart we said goodbye to Liverpool and our quest would continue north to the lake district via a crafty fish and chip stop in Blackpool.
I would like to thank everyone at Liverpool football club for an amazing day. Next stop the Lake District
