For the past 4 weeks ITV has been running a series asking people to vote for their favourite view of Britain - all 16 views were selected by celebrities. The winner was Wastwater in Cumbria, selected by Sally Whittaker, but I noticed several entries from the North West including The Three Graces Building in Liverpool.
The official website quotes Jamie Redknapp as saying: "I look at Liverpool not as city but a country in itself, the people are different there, they are very proud and passionate. If they like you they love you, and you are one of them for ever ... I do get that feeling even now when I go back."
We work for a number of the city's attractions, including the National Museums of Liverpool and the Albert Dock, and it's extremely exciting to be involved with a World Heritage Site and future European Capital of Culture. Nearly two million extra visitors are expected to attend the numerous world-class festivals and events that will take place in the run-up to and including 2008. We're just delighted to be playing a part in it all.
