Liverpool was once the epitome of 'the city with a pub on every corner', but no longer. As social habits and communities continue to radically change, hundreds of pubs continue to disappear annually, and mostly without trace except in memories. However, not all have been lost. Right across the heart of this European Capital of Culture and UNESCO World Heritage City, Liverpool still boasts many outstanding and historic pubs, each with fascinating tales to tell. Every year, millions of people from around the globe come to visit this world-class city and Liverpool's pubs feature high on their lists of essential places to visit. Here, they enjoy some of the finest ales, and experience one of the most hospitable places in Britain. In Liverpool Pubs, and with fascinating stories and pictures, respected local historian Ken Pye provides an indispensable guide, and a temptation, for even more people to come and discover the very best of these alehouses for themselves.Vom Verlag:
Liverpool is a city that has always loved its pubs. Ken Pye takes us on a tour of Liverpool's best and most infamous, from the pub where Hitler once drank to the Beatles' choice of drinking place, from the city's favourite bars today to the long-forgotten alehouses of centuries past. He tells their stories, uncovers their secrets and gets behind the scenes to have a real look at the history of Liverpool's inns and taverns. Well researched and beautifully illustrated, Liverpool Pubs provides something for everyone, whether they have lived in Liverpool all their lives, or whether they are just visiting this vibrant town.
