    Avoid the locals. (That's both pubs and people).

    Only been once, for a funeral. It was in a rough area but the people were brilliant. Very friendly and helpful, especially given the circumstances.

    I was in Liverpool 2 weeks ago on business , I stayed at The Hampton hotel for 3 nights .

    Its near to the albert dock , nice hotel , company paid but I think it was around the 70 mark per night

    Wi fi is crap in most rooms

    Nice enough for the job , travelled up by train so no idea about the parking

    Enjoy your stay

    Not been back for 11 years, but you can't go far wrong in and around the City Centre.
    The Albert Dock is worth a look.

    I found a Liverpool cookbook. On the first page it was 'How to make an omelette'. The ingredients list said 'First, steal 2 eggs'.

    Avoid mentioning the Beatles, like the plague. If you mention Echo & the Bunnymen you'll get a better reception. Lock your hubcaps.

    Whatever you do, don't carry around a copy of The Sun newspaper, or crack any Cilla Black jokes (still a bit early for that).

    I always found my friends car, one of those straight six triumph sports jobs, where we left it. The 10 year olds guarded it well. The tip was worth paying.

    This was when I watched Dalglish and the ginger haired supersub playing, though. Things may have changed.
