LiverpoolThe Beatles are what most people primarily associate with Liverpool and who can blame them, but there's certainly more to the city than it's biggest exports. Having undergone considerable rejuvenation since its industrial revolution days, the city clinched the title for European Capital of Culture in 2008 aided by its chic, reformed Albert Dock that lures a cool 5 million visitors per year. Liverpool's future is looking bright: it is one of only three cities in the UK to be granted World Heritage status.

With more Georgian architecture than any other city in the UK, a world-famous waterfront with the highest concentration of listed city buildings and monuments outside London as well as an array of exciting attractions, coach trips to Liverpool are on the rise. Stroll through the modern Tate Liverpool for innovative, interesting art before brushing up on Liverpool's seafaring heritage at the Merseyside Maritime Museum.

It goes without saying that as well as return coach travel and accommodation in a good 3 or 4* hotel in or close to the city, most coach holidays to Liverpool will incorporate a Beatles orientated tour either as an inclusion or option, and a journey on the legendary "Ferry 'Cross the Mersey" is usually the order of the day. Grand National race ground Aintree is also close, offering fun-fuelled trips to the greatest steeplechase event in the horse racing calendar.

To help you have an enjoyable holiday in England, please take a look at these useful tips and advice provided by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office:

Health and Travel Insurance 
Travel insurance is recommended by all our tour operators and for some operators it is a condition of booking. When choosing a travel insurance please ensure it fully covers all your personal requirements including pre-existing medical conditions, cancellation charges, medical expenses, and repatriation in the event of accident or illness. As a British citizen you will obviously be entitled to free emergency health care on the NHS.

If you are visiting England from outside the United Kingdom and fall ill or are involved in an accident and are from an EU country or Switzerland, you can use a valid EHIC issued by your home country to access healthcare. Please note this is not an alternative to travel insurance.  Comprehensive travel insurance is advised for nationalities planning on visiting the UK.

If you need to contact the emergency services whilst in the UK simply dial 999 or 112 to ask for an ambulance.

Crime 
The United Kingdom is a safe place to visit, however, as with all countries please exercise common sense. Petty crime can occur so take your usual precautions such as not leaving luggage unattended, beware of pickpockets in tourist areas and leave valuables in the hotel safe.

Local Laws and Customs 
Queuing is a British Institution - jump a queue at your own risk!

If you are visiting from outside of the United Kingdom, it is wise to check customs requirements before you travel. If you are planning to bring alcohol, tobacco or souvenirs into the country, you need to be familiar with the UK's custom laws. If you go over your allowances, you may have to pay tax or duty. It is worth checking the HM Revenues and Customs website before you travel.

UK Entry Requirements 
When travelling between the UK, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man you may need to show a Border Force officer a document confirming your identity. In most cases an official form of identification such as a driver's license or an armed forces identity card will be ok. However, some airlines will insist you show a passport so please check before you travel.

If you’re from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein you can enter the UK with one of the following identity documents: a passport, an Irish passport card or a national identity card issued by an EU country, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, if you’re eligible to use one. The identity document should be valid for the whole of your stay.

If you’re from outside the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein, you must have a valid passport to enter the UK. It should be valid for the whole of your stay. You may also need a visa, depending on which country you’re from. Please check here if a visa is required before you travel.
