During the years of the 1980′s the unemployment rate was incredibly high and the city faced increasing problems. while other cities benefited from inner city development Liverpool remained stagnant. Mercifully, in recent years this trend has radically reversed and today the city a cosmopolitan, forward looking and thrilling place for a short city break. In the below article I examine a selection of factors which make this such a worthwhile vacation destination.
