Student Life in Liverpool
A rich and diverse tradition of art, theatre and music made Liverpool the 2008 Capital of Culture, so a student life in Liverpool is never boring. Liverpool was the centre of ‘Merseybeat’ in the 1960s, spawning The Beatles, and a visit to the Cavern Club
on Matthew Street is a must. Liverpool is also home to the UK's oldest-established orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
For the sport-mad student there are the world famous Premier League Liverpool FC
and Everton FC
. Both Anfield and Goodison Park are a short distance from the city centre and both clubs offer stadium tours.
Among the fabulous architecture of Liverpool, the most famous is the Royal Liver Building
. Overlooking the River Mersey it is home to two fabled Liver Birds, one watching over the city and the other watching over the sea. Legend has it that, were these two birds to fly away, then the city would cease to exist.
The thousands of migrants and sailors passing through Liverpool resulted in broad cultural and religious diversity that is still apparent today, and shown through the shops, festivals and the wide selection of mosques, synagogues and two grand cathedrals. Liverpool is home to the oldest Black African community in the country and the oldest Chinese community in Europe.
