Why visit Liverpool?

A strategically important port

Like nearby Manchester, Liverpool’s prominence rose greatly during the Industrial Revolution, when it became a major port for the transatlantic trade.

Its strategic importance was recognised by both Churchill and Hitler, leading Liverpool to play an important role in WW2.

The Battle of the Atlantic was planned, fought and won from Liverpool. The city also suffered a blitz second only to that experienced in London, showing that the Nazis understood how important the city was to the Allies.

Liverpool offers some exciting educational opportunities for school groups studying WW2 and life in wartime Britain. One of our favourite visits is the Western Approaches Museum. This is housed in a secret underground bunker, beneath the streets of Liverpool. The bunker was an important base for tacticians helping to plan the Allied route to victory.

Another great visit is the Merseyside Maritime Museum. Here, you’ll learn more about Liverpool’s seafaring heritage, from its role in the slave trade to its pivotal role in the Battle of the Atlantic.

And why not combine your school trip to Liverpool with a visit to nearby Manchester, which also boasts some great museums and attractions dedicated to life in Britain during WW2.

One of the UK’s most creative cities

If you’re looking for an art school trip to inspire your young artists, then Liverpool is a fantastic destination.

Liverpool is a famously creative city, with many famous musicians, artists, comedians and actors hailing from the city. It is also home to more art galleries and museums than any other city in the UK apart from London.

If you want your students to better understand the history of art, make sure you visit the Walker Art Gallery, which itself has one of the largest art collections in England. Most famous for its impressive collection of Pre-Raphaelite art, the collection includes works from the 14th century right up to the 20th century.

For a glimpse into the world of modern art, make sure you don’t miss a visit to the Tate Liverpool. And if you have any students interested in multimedia, a visit to the Foundation for Art & Creative Technology is a must!

You can even explore sculpture with visits to see Another Place by Antony Gormley on Crosby Beach, and Dream by Jaume Plensa in St. Helens.
