We are not being biased in saying that any image taking of the breath-taking Liverpool skyline is simply stunning and is a sight for sore eyes. So, it comes as no surprise when National Geographic declared Liverpool’s ‘distinctive’ Skyline as one of the most beautiful in the UK.
The list features eight British cities, alongside the best viewing points within each to take in the scenic landscapes. National Geographic praised the unique attributes of Liverpool, noting: “Few skylines in England’s north come close to Liverpool’s for distinctive charm”.
Liverpool alongside the seven other cities, was featured as part of the National Geographic “Cities Special Issue”. Other beautiful cities on the list included, Bath, Glasgow, Ely, Durham, Edinburgh and London.
According to the National Geographic, Liverpool’s architectural delights including the Royal Albert Docks and “Jagged chef’s hat of the Metropolitan Catherdral” all added to the beauty of the historical waterfront skyline.
The monthly magazine has been running since 1888 and is known for its dramatic photography and in-depth features on history, science and world culture.
The magazine also suggests the best place to take photographs – by crossing the River Mersey by ferry, taking in Wallasey’s Seacombe pier and the Gothic-style Liverpool Cathedral.
