Liverpool Maps and Orientation
(Liverpool, Merseyside, England, UK)
Located within the borough of Merseyside and based on the easterly banks of the River Mersey, the city of Liverpool is now more than 1,800 years old and boasts a population that has recently topped half a million. Much of Liverpool's popularity of today is thanks in no small part to the sixties Merseybeat era, and as recently as 2008, the city was voted as the European Capital of Culture.
