Our Man from the Roannais says hello to The Beatles and Manchester United ! by Brian Franklin

Our Man from the Roannais visits The Beatles in Liverpool, and Manchester United ! Surely, just the best finale for our England trip !!

The final leg of our journey through in England covered the two great northern cities of Manchester and Liverpool. Another eye-opener for our friend Jean-Marc.

We toured around Manchester and Liverpool during this year’s trip, and showed Jean-Marc a few major sights, including Manchester United football ground, of course, along with a bit of shopping down Manchester’s Deansgate, as well as a fascinating visit to the War Museum near Old Trafford.

On another day we also headed to the historic Albert Docks in Liverpool, and discovered the delights of Tate Liverpool, as well as the Maritime Museum.

Liverpool has numerous great city art galleries and free art exhibitions. First stop should be the Liverpool Walker Art Gallery, the national gallery of the North, which houses works by Hockney, Degas, Turner and Rembrandt.

Tate Liverpool, at The Albert Docks, is also a must-visit city art gallery, housed in a stunning Grade 1 listed converted warehouse that stages lots of fantastic free, as well as paid-for, art exhibitions featuring work by everyone from Tracey Emin to Picasso.

Once again, glorious blue skies and sunshine accompanied us on our journey.

There is an enormous amount to see in these two great cities, and unfortunately only a ‘taste’ could be offered to Jean-Marc.

He enjoyed it all tremendously, and I certainly think he will be back sometime soon for more!
