Media and Familiarisation Visits

Liverpool is a city with many great stories to tell. From its boom years in the 19th Century which made it one of the great cities of the British Empire, through its spectacular economic collapse in the second half of the 20th century, to its rebirth as a major centre for culture, tourism and education, Liverpool is rich in experience and history.

As the home the Beatles, the World’s Capital of Pop and the inspiration for actors, writers, poets and musicians, there is always something new to say about the creative source that is Liverpool. The people of Liverpool are always ‘good copy’ and happy to share their unique humour and accent with visitors. Liverpool Football Club is one of the most famous teams in the world and its unique combination with Everton just across Stanley Park makes an intriguing story.

Liverpool is also beautiful in a way that few cities are, its streetscapes are lined with extraordinary buildings. Its setting on the banks of the Mersey makes it one of the world’s most photogenic cities.

For these reasons and many more journalists and broadcaster of all types are drawn to the city. Liverpool Destination Services specialises in working with the media.
