Information about Liverpool

Wiki source

Liverpool is closely associated with the arts, in particular music. The popularity of the Beatles (who are regarded as the most influential band in history) and other music groups from the Merseybeat era contributed to the city's status as a tourist destination, and Liverpool has continued to produce notable musical acts such as Dead or Alive, Echo & the Bunnymen, Elvis Costello, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Atomic Kitten, A Flock of Seagulls, and the Zutons. Musicians from the city have produced 56 No. 1 singles, more than any other city in the world. Liverpool has also long been the breeding ground for hundreds of notable actors and actresses, artists, comedians, journalists, novelists, poets, and sportspeople. The city has the second-highest number of art galleries and national museums in the United Kingdom, with only London having more. In sports, it is known for being the home of the Premier League football clubs Liverpool and Everton; matches between the two are known as the Merseyside derby. The Grand National horse race takes place annually at Aintree Racecourse.
