Located just north of Liverpool’s city center, the district of Everton is one of the city’s truly undiscovered gems. Originally the home of Beatles member Paul McCartney, and a hotspot for urban legends, this district’s colorful past can still be felt by those who venture into its streets today. Here’s a list of the top things to do and see in Everton, Liverpool.
Everton Water Tower
Located on Margaret Street in the heart of Everton, the Everton Water Tower was first opened in 1864. While mainly surrounded by modern housing, the water tower stands out as a stunning example of Victorian brick masonry work, designed by Liverpool’s first water engineer, Thomas Duncan. The water tower can be seen from most of Liverpool, as it stands high on Everton brow but an up-close visit is what truly reveals the splendor of this essential district landmark.
St. George’s Church
Consecrated in 1814, St. George’s Church is the oldest of three churches in Liverpool constructed by ironmaster John Cragg. Designated as a Grade I listed building on the National Heritage List for England, the church’s original charm is largely still intact. Besides the inherent uniqueness of the cast-iron and brick structure, there is a stained glass window by A. Gibbs from 1863 that was the only one to survive WWII. Keep in mind that the church still performs weekly masses, but a visit to take in the early 19th century architecture is definitely worth it.

Fab 4 Taxi Tours
Since the 1960s, the city of Liverpool has been synonymous with The Beatles – all four of the band members were born and raised here. Groups of up to five people can visit various sites around the city that were fundamental in shaping the future of the band with Fab 4 Taxi Tours. The £45 Epstein Tour lasts around two hours, and is personalized to include the stops the participants really want to see. Points of interest include St. Peter’s Church, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, and the childhood homes of all four members, including Paul McCartney’s in Everton!
