Liverpool One (rest of the world, nil)

Liverpool One phase 1 opens
Liverpool yesterday.
(The red carpet was red, of course.)

The Liverpool city centre moved a significant distance further west yesterday. No, not an earthquake: phase one of the new multi-million pound Liverpool One shopping and business centre opened in the middle of the biggest building site in Europe.

I went to have a look. Even though only 20% of the complex is open so far, it's seriously impressive. It's scheduled for completion in September. Can't wait to see the result.

  1. Points will be deducted for shell-suit and hubcap jokes. Get with it, chaps, it's the Twenty-First Century: Liverpool is buzzing!

  2. Ivisited Liddypool in 1971, while putting up the signs at Pontin's Prestatyn& people were still wearing Beatles suits & saying fab, gear etc. Are you saying they've caught up at last?

    While at Pontins, they were filming 'Holiday on the Buses'. I'm sure I am in the background in a few scenes.
