This is where I stayed last night in Liverpoool.

It’s a boutique b&b of exquisite design in a Georgian house, just around the corner from the Phil.

Best fresh breakfast and lovely owners.

It’s called 2 Blackburne Terrace.

    …We all live in a Robbie Fowler house, a Robbie Fowler house etc etc ad scousem

    Liverpool’s Georgian architecture is magnificent, and it’s wonderful to see it being so well cared for.

    And I trust you visited the superb marble urinals in the Philharmonic pub.

    Yes, I stayed there last autumn. Fantastic!

    Thanks for that! When I worked in Liverpool-and heard the Liverpool Phil play Elgar with Petrenko early on in their relationship-I really struggled to find independent places to stay. This looks wonderful. The architecture and also the light in Liverpool are amazing.

      When I was in Scottish Opera, Liverpool was always on the tour. Apart from the Adelphi, it was a nightmare to.find anything so.commuted from Sale instead!! This looks lovely. On my way to Chester today for a concert via Liverpool but won’t be staying!!!

    The big problem with b&bs is there’s no privacy. I prefer to remain anonymous.

    P.S. When in Liverpool I will most certainly try this place to stay at 😉
