In that time Eric pointed out things and took us to places that even as a Liverpudlian I'd never been. The icing... More

We visited here with our children 6 and 8 years. Really enjoyed it - the Titanic exhibition was very touching and a very worthwhile experience - having a son who is almost obsessed with the Titanic I already knew quite a few things about it - but we came away having learnt so much more.
