As a Liverpool native, can we get your thoughts on what places are worth going to, and which are best avoided? It'd be useful to have an insider's guide on where to go if a visitor has a day or two to spend in the city.
For example, is the Beatles museum in Albert Dock worthwhile? Are there any great pubs with history that a tourist should pop into? And are there places off the Beatle track that tend to be overlooked? I've been reading lately about the Casbah (the official site seems to be down but here's the MySpace page) was decorated by John, Cynthia, Stuart Sutcliffe and others, and the interior's said to still be intact, but it's rarely mentioned in the same breath as Mathew Street, Strawberry Fields, Forthlin Road etc.

Crikey! I bet he didn't do it for free though
You got that right! But he didn't charge much, as I recall... plus, he picked us up and took us to lunch.

Yeah, I'd be interested to know about places like Calderstones Park and the tunnels and secret things that only Liddypool natives are supposed to know about. You can let us in on the secret... as true blue Beatles fans, we are all honorary Scousers!

From my experience Liverpool is changing. Some for better, some for worse.
The better bit is that the museum is improving. I last went a long time ago but from what I've read of late there is much more there to see now and I'm looking forward to going back there some time. The National Trust purchases are of course the icing on the cake.
Regarding the 'worse' things that have happened is down to changing life I suppose. The hospital John was born at is no longer there; Ringo's birthplace is due for demolition (has that happened now?), Massey's music store has gone........
Of course Liverpool council's biggest blunder was demolishing the Cavern, but that was back in the early 70s.

I thought you might be interested in this. It was in the Liverpool Echo tonight. Sorry if the link is too long, im not up on this type of thing!

Wow, that's amazing. I wonder what he thought of it all? I presume the redecoration is as close as possible to being authentic, but I'm sure there were little things they couldn't get right. I'd love to know Paul's reaction.
I wonder too if he paid a visit to 251 Menlove Avenue while he was there.
