Visit to Liverpool
|Liverpool Roman Catholic Cathedral.||
“I was so pleased to see the Roman Catholic Cathedral. I saw it being built in 1955 and later in 1962, so it was so wonderful to see such a very modern Cathedral in completion, 54 years later!”
|The Philharmonic Dining Rooms||
"I loved the Liverpool Philharmonic Dining Rooms, lovely, it was a place I've always wanted to see (especially the Gents!) The food they put on was excellent too."
"The wonderfully ornate Philharmonic Dining Rooms were so atmospheric of a bygone age one could almost smell the smoke."
|The Everyman Theatre.||
"Robert Langthorne’s talk was well presented and very thorough and must have brought home to all a relatively new design approach by which outcome is determined by combining purpose (function) with sustainability. We also heard this explained in the summer when we visited the new Medical Centre. The difference, of course, is that cost constraint is likely to have figured more prominently in the case of the theatre."
John & Alwyne
"The theatre building visit was very fascinating too. The actual Shakespearean Play, 'The Two Gentlemen of Verona' was a very different production to what I have read and seen in the past! The two couples were not meant to be a pair of lesbians and homosexual from my memory, but as I am 81, maybe I have misjudged the situation!" Gemma
|The Premier Inn, Albert Dock.
"Our hotel was a converted tobacco warehouse."
|Port Sunlight Museum and Coach Tour.
“Even though Port Sunlight is now well over a hundred years old and has inevitably had to adapt to change, we still see an area in which someone would appear to care about every square metre of land. Such a contrast to what we must endure within so many urban environments. The whole is a tribute to Leverhulme’s vision and drive, to quality and to caring management over the years."
Alwyne & John
“Our friendly and humorous guide for the coach tour round Port Sunlight was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic she brought the area to life.”
