A Day Out in Liverpool...

Recently I've really been getting into the spirit of Sunday Funday.
Knowing you're in work the next day just makes a whole day of drinking and silly antics even more fun, like you know you shouldn't be doing it!

Well yesterday we decided to head to Liverpool for the day, which is only 40 minutes on the train from Manchester. I love being in a different city for the day, and Liverpool is a really nice place to spend the day. So a bunch of us boarded the train at 11.30am with a bottle of prosecco in hand and proceeded to make friends with everyone around us!

So the real reason we were going to Liverpool is because in case you didn't know, I'M GETTING MARRIED. I try to keep it on the down low on the blog so I don't turn into a Bridezilla and start posting a million things about DIY invites and the trendiest wedding colour schemes (there's plenty of other blogs for that) but it is actually the reason we took a trip to the European Capital of Culture.

We were scouting for a wedding band in Scouseland. And where did we go to vet our entertainers you ask? None other than the most famous club in the world - the Cavern Club. Graced by everyone from The Beatles to Queen, it's a venue on every Liverpool tourist's list. It was really cool actually, and even though we descended on the underground cave at about 2.30pm, it was absolutely rocking out and it felt more like midnight or the early hours of the morning when the party is in full swing. It was pretty surreal - like you enter the Cavern Club and you enter a completely different world where time plays no part whatsoever.

So if you're ever in the city on a Sunday afternoon, it's definitely worth checking out. The band we went to see were great, I can picture them playing at our wedding and getting everyone dancing all night long. Now we just need to see if we can afford real rockstars who have a regular set at the infamous Cavern Club...
