Liverpool

Things to do in Liverpool

Anfield has been called soccer's Fenway Park, though from the outside it seems a particularly unlovely factory. The field is an otherworldly green, all that moisture put to good effect. The scale is intimate, and everyone in the tightly packed stands wears red.

Legendary gallery and performance space.

New plays, often by local writers.

Theater classics performed in a 19th-century music hall.

Converted-warehouse branch of the London museum.

Small but impressive collections, from medieval book panels to David Hockney paintings.
