We start the day with a visit to Croxteth Hall. Now managed by the City of Liverpool, Croxteth Hall Country Park is at the heart of what was once a fantastic country estate and ancestral home of the Molyneux family, the Earls of Sefton. It has been described as one of the "finest working country estates in the North West". Within the estate there is the Historic Hall, Croxteth Home Farm, and the Victorian Walled Garden where visitors can explore Liverpool's historic botanical collection. The Hall was built in 1575, with additions in the Tudor, Georgian and Queen Anne styles.

We then move into the city centre, where there is plenty to explore, including the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool World Museum, Maritime Museum, Museum of Liverpool Life, St George's Hall, Tate Liverpool, plus a thriving shopping centre.

The special exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery is Victorian Treasures. Victorian Treasures brings together more than 60 outstanding Victorian paintings and watercolours from the art collections of National Museums Liverpool. The exhibition explores the work of leading 19th Century classical artists such as Frederic Leighton, Lawrence Alma-Tadema and Edward John Poynter. It also showcases work from pioneering Pre-Raphaelite artists including John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Holman Hunt.

Victorian Treasures was organised and selected in partnership with the exhibition agency Artis Inc and the art historian Christopher Newall. This hugely popular exhibition toured four major cities in Japan during 2015 and 2016 and was seen by over 150,000 visitors.
