Many have come, and continue to arrive, to set foot in the historic places of Beatlesmania: Mathew Street, Penny Lane or Strawberry Fields, for example.

And of course football. Because this is also the home of the most loved sport. And the presence of the glorious football teams (Liverpool and Everton) is an example.
