About me

Hello! I'm James, and I love nothing more than showing friends and family around this fabulous city which I call home. I was born and raised in Liverpool and have a real passion for the wonderful architecture for which the city is famous (there are more grade 1 and 2 listed buildings here than in any other English city outside London). I enjoy nothing more than strolling through Liverpool's beautiful parks, exploring the quirky shops along Bold Street and the Brewery Village or taking a meal in one of the many restaurants which the city has to offer. Liverpool has evolved massively in recent years, and there is evidence of this in so many ways, from the restoration of historic buildings and places, to brand new ventures such as Liverpool One shopping complex, which is a destination in its own right. My main interests include architecture, entertainment (music and theatre), food and drink, the history of the city and exploring the nooks and crannies away from the main sights, such as the beautiful Georgian Quarter, or (for The Beatles fans amongst you) the areas where certain famous Liverpudlians lived and socialised. Whether you are first-time visitors, or simply returning to explore new things, I look forward to welcoming you to Liverpool and sharing with you my knowledge and passion for the city.

My most exciting things to do in Liverpool

I love Liverpool for its vibrant and friendly atmosphere, fantastic and varied shops and restaurants, and wealth of its architecture and history. I like to take the Mersey Ferry, stroll through the beautiful city parks, and drink with friends at the many cafes and bars. The Georgian Quarter and Liverpool Cathedral are two favourite haunts of mine, for their beauty, history and majesty.
