36 Hope St, Liverpool L1 9BX www.nicholsonspubs.co.uk/
Known affectionately as The Phil, this beautiful Grade I listed pub is like nothing you’ve seen before. From its ornate interior, to its famous patrons, this is one cultural site you should tick off your list, especially if you need the loo. While describing The Phil, Best-selling travel writer Bill Bryson said, "There is no place in the world finer for a pee than the ornate gents' room of the Philharmonic”. Beautiful.
