Discover for yourself the haunts of slave traders, privateers and press-gangs, the hideaway of a suspected assassin and the desecrated grave of a self-professed Jack the Ripper. Track down the birthplace of rail travel and Britain's earliest mosque. Marvel at a life-size replica of the world's first submarine and the original home of the Epsom Derby. Be gobsmacked by burial stones older than Stonehenge and one of the earliest human settlements to be found anywhere in the UK. Grimace at a set of heroic dentures all the way from the battlefields of Waterloo and snigger at the sight of Queen Victoria's dildo. Meet trees that talk, World War II's best-kept secret and the world's first (and smallest) skyscraper. Toast the UK's greatest female athlete in a brew named in her honour or go for a spin on the only purpose-built F1 race track in the country.
For tourists and locals who have outgrown Hop on-Hop off bus excursions, river cruises and Beatles tours, Secret Liverpool is an indispensable guide to the curiosities of «England's finest Victorian city», designed for people who prefer to customise their own itinerary or simply wander where the mood takes them.
