10 interesting facts about Liverpool


Liverpool’s claims to fame are well known, and range from The Beatles to two famous and successful football teams, but there’s plenty else to unearth in this jewel of the North West. If you’re planning a visit, why not impress the Scousers you meet with your knowledge of their city?

916229_7c0d4c721. Nobody knows how it got its name

It might have been to do with the number of elvers (young eels) in the Mersey, or it may come from the Welsh word ‘llif’ meaning ‘flood’, but the etymology of the name ‘Liverpool’ is not fully known.

2891612_e907bd062. It has two cathedrals

Unusually for a relatively small city, visitors to Liverpool can take in both a Catholic and Anglican cathedral. This prompted the quip “if you want a cathedral we’ve got one to spare” in the Peter McGovern song ‘In My Liverpool Home’

The_Bangles_93. Seven songs that mention Liverpool have appeared in the UK charts

Liverpool is one of few UK cities to have been mentioned in a No. 1 hit, namely 1972’s ‘Long Haired Lover from Liverpool’ by Little Jimmy Osmond. The Scaffold (‘Liverpool Lou’), The Bangles (‘Going Down to Liverpool’) and Suzanne Vega (‘In Liverpool’) are other acts to have had Liverpool-themed songs in the charts.

Liverpool_4_European_Cups4. It has won more European Cups than any other city

Liverpool and Manchester United fans will argue over which team is the more successful, but the ‘Pool can certainly lay claim to being the most successful in Europe, boasting five European Cup wins. Fans of the sport who visit between August and May are likely to find a match on at Liverpool’s Anfield or Everton’s Goodison Park, either of which offer a cracking atmosphere.

$_355. It has words all of its own

If someone in Liverpool tells you your ‘trabs’ are ‘antwacky’, would you know that they were telling you that you were wearing old-fashioned shoes? There are droves of words unique to the Liverpudlian dialect, and Frank Shaw’s book ‘Lern Yerself Scouse’ will teach you them all.

Chinatown_-_Liverpool6. It’s home to Europe’s oldest Chinese community

Liverpool’s Chinatown is heralded by a stylish gate on Nelson Street, and is worth a visit for its restaurants, authentic shops and occasional festivities. This might be little surprise given that Chinese people have been living in the city for almost 200 years.

Houdini_and_Doyle_filming_Liverpool_Town_Hall_(19626681642)7. Its film industry is thriving

The urban character of Liverpool is luring filmmakers, with popular series like ‘Peaky Blinders’ and ‘Our Zoo’ having been shot here in recent years. If you want to see a film yourself, the independent FACT cinema offers an authentic movie experience.

Opening_Liverpool_and_Manchester_Railway8. The first steam-powered railway was based here

3379356_24c691139. Only London has more Grade II listed buildings in the UK
