There are many things to consider with relocation to Liverpool, especially when you are coming from an outside country. There is always the possibility of running into immigration issues even if you only plan to stay over a short period of time.
It is very important to get to know as much as you can about Liverpool before you make it to the city. For instance, if you do not already have a job or other position waiting for you when you arrive, you need to look at the types of job opportunities available to you. For instance, if you are in academia, you may find opportunities at universities such as Liverpool John Moores University or the University of Liverpool.
You will also need to know where to live when you get to the city. You may need to look for viable homes where you can raise pets if you plan to take any with you, but this may be a bit more difficult than finding a place if you do not have pets. You can also look into neighborhoods that are better for raising families if you have children or are planning to start a family. If your options are open, you can consider one of the many neighborhoods like Cavern Quarter, City Centre, Dock Front, Hope Street Quarter, RopeWalks and Woolton.
You may also consider looking at some of these popular and/or historical neighborhoods when looking for something to do in Liverpool. As home to the most famous and beloved rock group of the 20th century, you should have no trouble finding some of the more historic parts of the city including The Cavern Club that offers the Magical Mystery Tour, a two-hour bus ride taking you on a journey that lets you rediscover the Beatles.
Of course, there is much more to the city than Beatlemania. Football fans can take a tour of the Liverpool Football Club or even take in a game. If you enjoy history, you can go to the International Slavery Museum that chronicles the city's part as a major port in the peculiar institution. Film lovers also have the Foundation for Art & Creative Technology where they can explore indie films as well as other artworks in the gallery and multimedia spaces of the building.
