Liverpool is major northwest English city and port on the River Mersey, near its mouth on the Irish Sea. Its links with arts and entertainment are legendary - The Beatles, writers, actresses and many comedians came from here.
Notable buildings include the town hall (1754) and the Albert Docks (1840s), containing the largest group of "Grade I" listed buildings in Britain. It is now a redeveloped waterfront site and is home to the Liverpool Tate Gallery, Granada television studios, and several museums. Other outstanding buildings are the Neo-Classical St George's Hall (1854), housing concert halls, law courts, and exhibition rooms; the Gothic-style Anglican Cathedral (consecrated 1924), one of the largest ecclesiastical structures in the world; and the Roman Catholic cathedral of Christ the King (consecrated 1967), a striking example of modern architecture. The city of Manchester can also be reached from here.
In 1207 King John granted the hamlet of Liverpool the privileges of a free borough. It remained an insignificant port town until the late , when the nearby port of Chester declined as a result of the silting of the River Dee. The growth of manufacturing in the 17th century and the increase of trade with America and the West Indies caused Liverpool to thrive. Expansion of the harbour was necessary, and by the end of the 18th century the city had become a rich metropolis thriving on the slave trade and privateering. In 1830 a railway was opened between Liverpool and Manchester, and by the 1860s the city was the centre of an extensive rail network. During this period its population grew rapidly as numerous immigrants, chiefly from Ireland, settled here. Liverpool became the foremost British port for American trade and passenger service in the 19th century.
