Liverpool 25 -ish years on (Day 1)

I've become quite a fan of visits to UK cities.

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
