Liverpool sights 2
Every self respecting Englishman has a local and mine for many years was the Philharmonic pub in Liverpool's hope st. (as described in cathedral post) Meeting up for a couple of swift pints on a Friday evening before starting off our night around town was a weekly tradition. The pub itself with its marble and polished wood was a great place to warm up to a night out and as a plus they served a great Guinness.Apparently the pub had been a favourite of such individuals as John Lennon but by my day he had firmly entered the world of hippy madness and a pint of Guinness was way below his drug induced madness, maybe he should have stuck to mild? Although I no longer frequent the now tourist inhabited 'Phil' I am glad that a new clientele is keeping the place going and hopefully admiring the work that went into such a magnificent gin palace.
