Hanover Hotel - Local Attractions
This bustling city offers its visitors a wealth of arts, music, sport and leisure. Within ten minutes walk from the hotel there are theatres, night clubs and a host of pubs. Add to this art galleries, museums and cultural centres and you'll find the days (and nights!) just aren't long enough. The beautiful buildings around the Pier head include the Three Graces and reflect the unrivalled maritime history of Liverpool. Liverpool's gem is the Albert Dock, where the authentically restored dock buildings now house shops, accommodation, the Maritime Museum and Tate Liverpool - the modern art gallery. Trips by motor cruisers or amphibious DUKW ('the Yellow Duckmarine'!) allow views of the historic waterfront, docks and buildings.
