Liverpool Landmarks and Monuments

(Liverpool, Merseyside, England, UK)

Liverpool Landmarks and MonumentsThe past centuries have seen the face of Liverpool change many times, and yet some important landmarks still remain standing. During WWII, more than 80 air-raids took place around Merseyside, destroying many lives and historic buildings. Soon after, much building work took place and its acclaimed Royal Seaforth Dock came into being.

In 2007, Liverpool celebrated the historic 800th anniversary of the borough's founding. The following year, the city welcomed the opening of the Liverpool ONE complex (a combination of shops, leisure facilities and residential housing), which is believed to have cost more than £900 million and saw significant changes to the layout of the city centre.
