Thanks Carl for the photos you loaded today of the warriors. We're thinking of going so I would be interested in your opinion of the exhibition in general.

Thanks

Hi there

I actually wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did, we were a party of four friends and all of us came away really impressed. Seeing the Warriers up close was great there is plenty of reading about the history plus associated items. We spent about 90 mins in the exhibition.

It is very popular, you should pre book tickets, which are timed.
Carl

Good to see, and although Olsen do an increasing number of cruises out of Liverpool it could do a lot more. Southampton isnt easy or cheap to get to from the north so it can only be a matter of time before other companies follow suit. Lime Street is easy to get to and Pierhead is 5 mins in a taxi

Artists' impressions of a new £30m ferry terminal connecting Liverpool and the Isle of Man have been revealed.
The Manx government has released the designs as it prepares to lodge a planning application next month.
The facility is scheduled to open in late 2020 with funding subject to Tynwald approval.
Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson said the terminal would be a "critical piece for our regeneration plans for the north shore".
Manx infrastructure minister Ray Harmer said passengers' needs have been "at the forefront of the design process" with "comfortable and modern facilities".

The designs will be displayed at a public exhibition in Liverpool from Thursday.
Vehicles and freight will be served by a £7.6m link road.
Mr Anderson said: "The city council is investing a huge amount of money in the transport infrastructure to support this new facility and we look forward to its completion.
"The Isle of Man and Liverpool have a historic relationship, and this new ferry terminal will cement our strong links and forge even closer ties into the future."

The terminal will be built half a mile (800m) from the current Pier Head facility at Princes Half-Tide Dock.
The existing terminal is set for a major redevelopment as a cruise liner berth as part of the £5bn Liverpool Waterfront scheme.

How the M&S Bank Arena on Liverpool waterfront will look

Liverpool’s waterfront arena officially became the M&S Bank Arena on Monday – after a decade being know as the Echo Arena.
A full rebrand of the arena, part of the ACC Liverpool complex, is now under way. The complex also includes the Convention Centre, Exhibition Centre Liverpool and the Pullman Hotel.
The rebrand comes after a successful Christmas holiday period for the venue, which saw the Theraplate UK Liverpool International Horse Show return for the fourth consecutive year.
The M&S Bank Arena is set for a busy year in 2019, which will see it host high profile artists such as George Ezra, Little Mix and Rod Stewart, as well as Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor Tour. The Netball World Cup is set to attract tens of thousands of global visitors when it comes to the city in July.
Sue Fox, chief executive of M&S Bank, said: “We’re very proud to have been based in the North West since M&S Bank was formed in 1985 and it’s absolutely fantastic to start 2019 with the launch of the M&S Bank Arena – Liverpool’s top venue for music, sport, comedy and family entertainment.”
The venue has hosted over 1,300 performances since it first opened its doors in 2008. Entertainment highlights have included the European MTV Awards, the Davis Cup, Sir Paul McCartney, the MOBO Awards and BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
Bob Prattey, chief executive of The ACC Liverpool Group, which is owned by Liverpool City Council, said: “Last year we marked 10 years since the venue first opened its doors and I’m incredibly excited to start the next chapter as the M&S Bank Arena.
“Based in the region, M&S Bank shares our passion for the city of Liverpool, making it the perfect naming partner for our venue. We look forward to continuing to host a multitude of major events for visitors to the M&S Bank Arena.”
