History of Liverpool
I went to Liverpool as a school girl on a school trip and went across the Mersey on a ferry
Ferry Cross the Mersey I loved it and was amazed at the city and all that it contained.
I loved the song as well Gerry and the Pacemakers
One day I would love to do the Beatles Tour Beatles Tour
So from the amazing city of Liverpool I go onto Grimsby famous for the Fish market
From the age of 5 years onwards whilst my Mother was a t school she spent the summer holidays with her Uncle who was Policeman In Grimsby. Part of his beat was the Grimsby docks and fish market. She would get up early to go with her Uncle to the docks and and get the fresh fish before he started work. She was given a small bag to carry back some fish that was eaten for dinner that night. She recalled how fresh the fish was and how much she enjoyed the docks. This was in the year 1923 onwards.
This what she would have seen Grimsby docks 1923

So from here I go onto Blackpool.
I used to live in Leyland not that far from Blackpool so went to this bustling seaside town often.
Famous for the Blackpool Tower and the Blackpool Golden Mile where you will find pleasure arcades and piers galore.
The Golden Mile It would be a shame to rename this as it is so well known but then all things change but not always for the better.
We had our Honeymoon in Blackpool
Here is a potted History of this lively town Blackpool's History
Blackpool Tower 500 feet high it was inspired by Gustave Eiffel’s tower built Paris and people flock to this amazing building every year. Click to Experience the Tower
So if you like the hustle and bustle of a seaside town then Blackpool is the place to be but do make sure you have plenty of money as it is expensive.
Fro the busy town of Blackpool I head for Scarborough another Seaside resort.
Scarborough is lovely and not as commercial as Blackpool much more me I prefer seaside places that are quieter. Its history can be traced back to the Iron age and even the Vikings settled here. The Castle ruins dominate the rest of the town and was built around 1130 by William Le Gros. A small taste of Scarborough
You cannot go to Scarborough without visiting Whitby home of Dracula.
Dracula and more See Whitby for yourself
Whilst here a must see as far as I am concerned is Castle Howard known to many who watched Brideshead Revisited I have always been drawn to it long before the TV series and funny enough one that I have never seen. Here is the history of this house Castle Howard
Take a look at Castle Howard
Yes you are right Catherine Howard who was married to King Henry VIII is part of this family but lived The Howard family in Tudor times lived in East Anglia - Framlingham Castle was one of their properties.Catherine Howard
So having explored Scarborough and the area I am off to Whitehaven.
