Located at the heart of England’s North West region, Liverpool is a city with vision, ambition, confidence and momentum.
Since being European Capital of Culture in 2008, Liverpool has regenerated and transformed itself into a world-class destination with a dynamic reputation, a rich maritime history, unrivalled musical heritage and a proud sporting tradition.
English Heritage has named Liverpool as England’s finest Victorian city. More than 2,500 listed buildings and two cathedrals create a stunning architectural array which complements a world-class cultural offering, with more museums and galleries than any city outside London. Liverpool is also a trend setter, with a distinctive selection of boutique hotels, fashionable restaurants, wine bars and shops offering every major international brand. At the end of a day’s competition, athletes, officials and spectators will be spoilt for choice for entertainment and ‘retail therapy’.
Liverpool was voted the UK’s friendliest city by readers of Condé Nast Traveller for the second successive year in 2011 and placed third in Rough Guides’ Top Worldwide Cities to visit in 2014. With a diverse local and regional population of seven million, every competing athlete is assured of a home welcome while Liverpool’s residents will greet everyone involved with EITF Championships 2017 with open arms and immense pride.
