Liverpool is a major port city in the North West of England and the metropolitan borough of Merseyside. It is a historic city, with dozens of architecturally and culturally important buildings, and a very significant economic centre for the UK. Liverpool was European Capital of Culture in 2008 and is renowned internationally for its association with Rock ‘n’ Roll music, and particularly with Merseybeat, a form of rock-pop which took the world somewhat by storm in the 1960s. Liverpool has a proud and extensive maritime history dating back centuries and it remains one of the most active and important ports in Europe. Plans for future development of dockland areas around the city include a project called Liverpool Waters, which is intended to see £5.5 billion invested into regeneration efforts by around 2050.
