Tracing its origins back to 1207, Liverpool was one of the greatest ports in the world and one of the most prosperous towns in Britain for two hundred years. UNESCO has designated Liverpool a World Heritage Site and, compared with other British cities, it has more museums and galleries than anywhere outside of London.
Today Liverpool is home to a thriving arts community, with exciting programmes of exhibitions, talks and events all year round, as well as regular festivals such as the Liverpool Biennial. In 2008 Liverpool was European Capital of Culture, and that legacy lives on.
This handbook describes the major libraries, archives and museum collections where you can research culture, art and design. It will allow you to explore these cities and direct you to the most appropriate places for your research needs.
