Postcard from Liverpool

This city on the Mersey has more to offer than Albert Dock and its claim to fame as the Beatles' hometown. I'm not saying you should ignore the Beatles or Albert Dock - by all means, have a look around! But there are a few weird and wonderful places in Liverpool that travellers should check out!

The massive shopping centre Liverpool One (opposite Albert Dock) should satisfy all your designer label shopping needs. Restaurants, game shops and a cinema help entertain those who have to accompany the shopper. If you can't find what you're after and you're more into alternative fashion and music anyway, you should have a look around Grand Central. Formerly known as "Quiggins" before it moved to the new location, it houses loads of shops that sell alternative and funky clothes and accessoires of any kind as well as vintage clothing and vinyl records. Bear in mind, however, that many of the shops are run by students, and might not be open during semester breaks! There's a tattoo and piercing parlour as well, and everyone from punk to goth can find their perfect jewellery there.

In case you want to have a great but cheap night out after spending a day running around Liverpool and you're over 18 years of age, you should head towards CaVa Tequila Bar on Wood Street. The bar doesn't look like much from the outside, though once inside you have to admit that it's got its own kind of charme to it. It's a long, narrow and dimly lit place. Posters have been put up and torn down time and time again, the stereo is playing reggae. There are not a lot of seats - but what they're lacking in seats they even out with Tequila! There are roughly 20 different flavours - from dark chocolate to mint, banana and butterscotch, so there should be one for everyone. Shots are £ 1, and here's how I've been taught how to spend time in CaVa: Have a flavoured shot first - lick, swallow, bite - and then have a normal tequila and coke for £ 1,50.
