Taking a stroll along Hope Street you’ll soon discover that it's the hub of Liverpool's arts and entertainment industry. In addition, the area's restaurants and bars make it an ideal place in which to relax and absorb the atmosphere.
Your walk begins at one of the city's most magnificent buildings, the Metropolitan Cathedral and ends at Liverpool's other magnificent cathedral, the Anglican. Moving on, you’ll hear the history of four unique theatres and some of the famous performers who've walked the boards. And we’ll pass a diverse range of eateries and restaurants including one of the finest in the country. As well as the street’s connection to The Beatles. I’ll even point out which bar was favoured by the young John Lennon and what was his rather unusual tipple when there.
At the heart of the street stands the city's finest and oldest concert venue, the wonderful Philharmonic Hall. From here, you’ll venture into the second half of the street where you’ll first pass one of two world renowned arts and entertainment educational institutions. Their patrons are equally renowned in the world of popular music. (One of whom is a non-Liverpudlian. You'll discover his name on the way).
