It's something like 25 years since I was in Liverpool (for work) - mainly spent the time doing computer-y things (I was working with a TV Newsroom Computer company -BASYS) at Granada's (then) Liverpool studios in the Albert Dock where This Morning used to be 'made'.
|This Morning used to be from Albert Dock and Weather Map was there too|
Part of the pleasure of a w/e away is the train trip and on Friday morning we left London Euston for Liverpool Lime Street - operator Virgin Trains.
Comfortable journey with good service and although we were 20 or so minutes late in, no big problem .
Novotel Hotel about 15 minutes from the Station and very much does the job, all mod cons, Wi-Fi, Gym (if you like that sort of thing) nice telly (Philips) and a fine breakfast selection.
So our first vsit was Tate Liverpool (I'd spent there time on my last visit) - nice lunch there - we looked at Tate Artist Room for Roy Lichtenstein - very good.
|WHAAM ! perhaps Roy's most famed picture|
|But there are plates too.|
Well although we had a nice lunch we were later ready for dinner and had an absolute cracker round the corner, old school Italian - place was Villa Romana.
|Villa Romana -A very nice restaurant|
