Hi there, Fred & Ginger here, this is our final post from Liverpool with some random pictures that amused us. Like King Neptune above decorating these gate post on the banks of the magnificent Mersey and this pigeon sitting on the arm of a statue below.
Underneath is the largest Chinese arch outside of China. It was a present to the citizens of Liverpool in 2000 because they have the oldest China town in the world outside of the People's Republic. This impressive arch features two hundred carved dragons.
And, finally a Banksy. As some of you may know he is one of Faz's favourite artists and there are pictures of his graffiti rats all over the country. No one knows his true identity and he believes that art should be free and for the people. Nevertheless this run down old shop below is now worth £500,000 because of his painting on the side. We do so hope you all enjoyed our visit to Liverpool over the last week as much as we did. Purrs from us
