    Very proud of my nephew who has put a labour of love into [ame="http://vimeo.com/68071838"]this video[/ame] of his (adopted) home town.

    I hope you don't mind me sharing it.

    Fantastic,just wait for the snide comments of cars on bricks etc! The city is indeed something to be proud of,it looks almost continental. Liverpool has more listed buildings than anywhere else in the country as well as the river front being a World Heritage Site.
    The commentators should visit before they open their mouths.
    Has your very talented Nephew suggested the tourism office use it?

    He has very excitedly reported on FB that Visit Britain has tweeted it to their 140,000 followers! So the answer to your last question has to be "Yes".

    As regards the naysayers, we are quite thick skinned, aren't we. Take it on the chin and laugh it off!

    i am going to Liverpool for my niece's wedding on the 4th of August.

    Staying at the Hilton Hotel because that is where she is getting married.

    I checked for secure parking nearby as I wanted the wheels intact for our journey home.:Laughing:

    So found parking with CCTV close by.

    I was thinking of driving hubby's sit up and beg car, but just couldn't do it, :Eeek:

    I prefer to take a chance and drive my nice Mercedes sport.:Smile:

    Have you got wheel hub/ wheel replacement on your insurance?

    Some policies exclude the LV 1 - 2000 postcodes

    If you are driving a flash motor just park it a bit south towards L8 it will be safe especially if it is a Merc or Beemer,they will think it is a drug dealers wheels and may 'touch' you for a 'wrap'.
    Living on Merseyside has a major advantage that within 2 hours we cna have our vans in the heart of the Lake or Peak District, and Snowdonia in the same time it takes to get through the M25!

    Am now an adopted scouse and am loving it. I have always lived in the sticks and never thought for a second I would enjoy living in a city. Liverpool is a fantastic place with always something going on. Only last weekend we had the tall ships here. The giant puppets last year were a sight I will never forget. After London Liverpool has the fastest growing economy in Britain, so I suppose considering that the London economy is a false economy Liverpool must be number one. Best of all there are bargains to be had on every street corner :Rofl1:.

    I don't think so, just a project, a labour of love, a learning tool.

    Brilliant bit of video, but to be honest it's not too hard to show Liverpool off in a great light nowadays, the City is buzzing, on the back of City of culture (which was well deserved) the City has continued to grow, jibes about losing the wheels off your motor apply to any City or large Town outskirts, LIVERPOOL City centre is acknowledged as one of the safest in the country, nice to see in the video the sun was shining, just 40 miles up the ship canal in Manchester it was pissing down:Laughing:

    Excellent video - I particularly like those slow tracking but speeded up sequences. Must have taken some planning. Was it a student assignment or just something he chose to do?
