LIVERPOOL

Blighted by urban decay after decades of economic decline, Liverpool may not sound like an appealing place to visit, yet the resilient Liverpudlians (or "Scousers"), the twin modern cathedrals, the first-rate art galleries and score of museums, the musical and maritime heritage, make this one of England's most engrossing cities.

The neo-Gothic Anglican cathedral, the largest of its denomination in the world, and biggest church in England, is the masterpiece of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott.
St. George's Hall - one of the country's finest neo-classical buildings and tone-setter for the surrounding, undeniably impressive cityscape.
