On the way home from our trip to Lancaster I cashed in a raffle prize that friends in the church had passed on to us. They won passes for the Liverpool Anfield tour and museum. So I booked it up on the sly and kept it quiet until we were in Lancaster.
On arrival at Anfield - which is in a shockingly deprived part of the city - we waited by the Shankley memorial under The Kop and then had a splendid time touring the stadium, press room, changing rooms, managerial dugout, Kop and all. Then we ate at the Boot Room cafe and went to see all the bling in the trophy cabinets - and Liverpool have won a lot of trophies! Found out that the Kop holds 12,300 I think, which is nearly half as much again as the entire stadium at Exeter City. It was really well done with very friendly guides and we spent longer there than we expected, a good day out.
