Alicia Hotel Visitor Charter Dear Traveller The Best western Alicia hotel is set in the tranquil and beautiful setting of Sefton Park located in the Historic City of Liverpool, home to some of the greatest musicians in history it is not hard to see where they got their inspiration from when you first find this idyllic setting, with the famous “Palm House” home to some of the worlds most tropical plants and the famous “Glen” you can easily lose time walking the park and maybe go for a jog around the 2.2 mile perimeter. The hotel is situated literally five minutes away from the city centre and within easy reach via public transport or car. Buses run every 15 minutes during the day and evening, taxis are available on call and cycle hire can be arranged via reception should you so wish. To walk to town will literally take 15 minutes and you will find yourself walking down Prices avenue which once upon a time held a law that stated “Should you reside on one side of Princes avenue then you are only permitted to walk on that side and vice versa” or words to that effect. Local attractions within the easy reach include; the fabulous Beatles tour and museum and this can be found at Liverpool’s famous Albert Dock. This area is home to the largest collection of grade one listed buildings anywhere found in the UK and has plenty of places to eat, drink and see. If it takes your fancy (and probably not before dining) you can experience “Bug World” this tour goes through the life of bugs and their contribution to the World. You can even purchase a “bug lollipop” should you so wish! The Beatles tour (which can be booked via our reception desk) takes you on a magical tour of the city, this includes stopping of at Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane and other infamous areas. You can finish this tour by stopping and having a drink in the Cavern Club where the Beatles first played their sound to the locals of Liverpool. Liverpool’s famous Cathedrals are worth a visit and both of these are separated by “Hope Street” some say purposely some say not! These are just a few tings to do and see whilst in this splendid city where fashion is first. Liverpool is a major shopping centre. The fantastic Liverpool One shopping development is home to John Lewis and Debenhams, the Liverpool Hilton, a new bus station, public park and cinema. The more intimate setting of the Met Quarter is host to a wealth of designer shops. Both are within walking distance of each other in the heart of the city. If you are looking for something more local then Lark Lane situated five minutes away from the hotel is home to the most Bohemian of atmospheres, having some 22 licensed premises located along it and little trinket shops you will find yourself immersed in the Liverpool culture just by walking down it. Last but not least we have to mention that Liverpool is home to Two Great Football teams. Liverpool Football Club at Anfield and Everton at Goodison Park. Both being within easy reach (with access being best sought after via public transport to avoid


traffic and parking charges) they provide you with a museum each and show you the History behind these two opposing teams. Remember wherever you go in Liverpool and talk to a local you will be talking to a Blue or a Red and never know which one until you talk about football! To make the most of our bid to reduce our Carbon Footprint and to see the efforts of the hotel we hold at reception our very own “Green Concierge File� this highlights public transport, train times, bus timetables etc, Walking maps, jogging routes and cycle hire. The Best Western Alicia Hotel thanks you in advance for helping us become even greener than we already are and hope that by our groups effort to reduce carbon emissions we are contributing to the world which we love.
