Liverpool is a city of diversity and it boasts the most Georgian buildings in the UK, Europe's oldest Chinatown, a number of striking Victorian buildings and plenty of world-class attractions. The historical Albert Dock was restored in the 1980s and is now one of the city's most popular attractions, housing chic restaurants, bars, shops and museums, including the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the Tate Liverpool. The city boasts two world-class football clubs, Liverpool and Everton, and fans can explore the grounds of their favourite teams.
There is also plenty of Beatlemania to satisfy fans, including the International Beatles Week every August, and several Beatles-related museums and points of interest. Liverpool is well-pedestrianised, and visitors can enjoy many of the city's sights and sounds on foot, but taxis, buses and trains are readily available. An underground system also operates between the city's four main train stations. The city is relatively easy to negotiate by car, and there are several car rental agencies available. A great way to explore the city and its surrounds at a leisurely pace is on the Mersey Ferry. A regular service links Liverpool's Pier Head to neighbouring Birkenhead on the Wirral.
The railway gained the affectionate nickname of Dockers' Umbrella, as the track bed on the railway was totally enclosed. The Overhead Railway was opened on 4 February 1893 by the Marquis of Salisbury. The railway ran from Alexandra Dock to Herculaneum Dock, a distance of six miles.
The extension at Herculaneum Dock was achieved with a 200 ft (61 m) lattice girder bridge and then boring a half mile (800 m) tunnel through the sandstone cliff to Park Road. The tunnel portal and complete underground station are some of the few surviving signs of the railway's existence.
It used standard gauge track with 11 intermediate stations along the line.
Extensive bomb damage was inflicted during the Blitz but it was quickly repaired to maintain the smooth running of the docks. With extensive work needing to be done, rescue attempts continued until September 1957, when the dismantlers moved in.

Liverpool has been described as having "the most splendid setting of any English city. At 53°240N 2°590W (53.4, 2.98), 176 miles (283 km) northwest of London, located on the Liverpool Bay of the Irish Sea the city of Liverpool is built across a ridge of sandstone hills rising up to a height of around 230 feet (70 m) above sea-level at Everton Hill, which represents the southern boundary of the West Lancashire Coastal Plain.
The Mersey Estuary separates Liverpool from Birkenhead, Wallasey and the Kirby[disambiguation needed] sands to the south west. The boundaries of Liverpool are adjacent to Bootle, Crosby and Maghull in south Sefton to the north, and Kirkby, Huyton, Prescot and Halewood in Knowsley to the east.
Liverpool's history means that there are a considerable variety of architectural styles found within the city, ranging from 16th century Tudor buildings to modern-day contemporary architecture. The majority of buildings in the city date from the late-18th century onwards, the period during which the city grew into one of the foremost powers in the British Empire. There are over 2,500 listed buildings in Liverpool, of which 27 are Grade I listed and 85 are Grade II* listed.
The city also has a greater number of public sculptures than any other location in the United Kingdom aside from Westminster and more Georgian houses than the city of Bath.This richness of architecture has subsequently seen Liverpool described by English Heritage, as England's finest Victorian city.
The value of Liverpool's architecture and design was recognised in 2004, when several areas throughout the city were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
