30 September 2020 Off By Saket Gupta

While “musical” might not be the most sought-after option for people who are trying to describe a city, we couldn’t think of a better word for Liverpool! This city in its very essence is musical, literally, and figuratively. Being the birthplace of the iconic Beatles, Liverpool is a sometimes quirky beat and other times, a beautiful symphony.
