Liverpool&The Venue

Liverpool is a global city, one that’s proud of its heritage and culture but also passionate about looking to the future. This makes it an exciting, inspiring and exhilarating place to host Littoral 2016. The Liverpool city region is of international importance with the Dee Estuary SAC, Mersey Estuary SAC , Sefton Coast SAC and the Ribble Estuary SAC. These sites are between 10 minutes and 1 hour travel time of the conference venue. The coast of Liverpool offers an amazing combination of near natural estuary and sand dune wildscapes that contrasts starkly with an urban coastline and one of the busiest port complexes in Europe. With an international perspective and exceptional economic strengths, Liverpool is recognised as one of the UK’s leading business, leisure and tourism destinations.

 

Top attractions – apart from the coast!

However long is spent in Liverpool, the itinerary will be jam-packed with things to see and do. It is difficult out a single set of attractions due to the multiple attractions and values. These range from outstanding architecture, first class shopping in high class designer outlets, sporting attractions and world class culture and arts venues. One might start with a visit to the famous Albert Dock, where you’ll find the Tate Liverpool, the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the award-winning Beatles Story. Popular culture makes the most of the ‘Fab Four’ making it possible to take a Liverpool Beatles tour and discover the Cavern Club, Mendips, 20 Forthlin Road, and other locations that led the Beatles to Abbey Road.

 

Arts and Culture

Liverpool city is soaked in culture, and has one of the most impressive collections of museums and galleries in Europe. The city’s national museums are outstanding; World Museum Liverpool, Walker Art Gallery, The Conservation Centre, The Maritime Museum and the Museum of Liverpool all provide a fascinating insight into the city and its links to the world – see http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/. The Walker Art museum houses works by Hockney, Degas, Turner and Rembrandt. The city’s arts scene is firmly at the forefront – the brilliantly cool FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) is the UK's leading media arts centre and features everything from provocative arts projects to the latest Hollywood blockbusters.

 

Music and Nightlife

Music is the beating heart of Liverpool. The Capital of Pop is most famous for giving us the Beatles, and the Cavern Club Liverpool is a must for any fan of the Fab Four. There are major live music hotspots like Liverpool Academy, Bumper, and Magnet. The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is the UK's oldest surviving professional symphony orchestra based in the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. The Beatles museum is a must for Beatles fans.

 

Sport

Liverpool is a sports-mad city. The city is home to two of the Premier League’s biggest football teams – Liverpool FC and Everton FC. But it’s not all about football. There are three Royal Links courses (coastal dune golf courses) on England’s Golf Coast stretching from the Wirral peninsula north to the Fylde, along with at least another 5 coastal dune links courses.

 

Shopping

Liverpool is a very stylish city. Liverpool ONE in the heart of the city is a brilliant shopping centre that houses more than 160 famous high street names, from John Lewis to Apple, Topshop to Cath Kidston. For a touch of luxury there are the shopping centres Cavern Walks or Metquarter, where brands like Vivienne Westwood, Jo Malone, L.K. Bennett and Tommy Hilfiger are found.

 

History and Heritage

Liverpool’s history stretches back over 800 years, covering everything from maritime trading to Beatlemania. The city’s history as one of the world’s great ports earned its designated UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2004. There’s no better way to learn about this story of Liverpool than a visit to the city’s national museums; World Museum Liverpool, Walker Art Gallery, The Conservation Centre, The Maritime Museum and the Museum of Liverpool all provide a fascinating insight into the city and its links to the world.

 

The Venue - Liverpool Hope University

Littoral 2017 will be based mainly in the EDEN building, located on the Hope Park Campus. It provides a range of spaces which will allow the conference to function suitably whilst also meeting needs of the delegates. For larger presentations, the Lecture Theatre Complex will also be used as well as the EDEN Lecture Theatre

Accommodation for the conference will be in the form of Halls of Residence and also an upgrade option to the University 4* hotel. Please visit the University website for further details.
