Thursday 17th May 2012
The weather wasn't as bad as forecast today. The Queen was due to take a tour of this dock today and I was heartened to see that although security was present it wasn't a stupid lock-down and we were able to move freely.
We didn't stay around to wave but carried on with our site seeing. Today it was the Anglican Cathedral and The Museum of Liverpool Life. The Cathedral is stunning, and the pics may give a clue. The views from the tower are wonderful, access isn't too bad either, it does involve quite a few steps, but most of the climb is done in two lifts.
