Liverpool should surely be one of Britain's top destinations for cityscape photographers. It features a tempting blend of magnificent Georgian, Victorian, neo-classical and striking modern architectural styles all found within an easy walk of the vibrant World Heritage Site riverfront featuring working docks, museums, shops and restaurants.
This field trip will spend the morning in and around the city centre and then, weather permitting, relocate (by car or easy public transport) to visit Anthony Gormley's renowned Another Place; an installation of 100 life-sized statues at Crosby Beach.

Unless there is a major geophysical upset, the tide at Crosby will be out which is, arguably, the best time to visit Another Place. For those who don't have to get away early, we will wait to see the statues at sunset.

As an alternative to cityscape photography in the morning, some people might be interested in visiting the Open Eye photography gallery or the Hardmans' House - home of renowned landscape and portrait photographer Edward Chambre-Hardman. Please note there is a £6.50 entrance fee to the Hardmans' House and it MUST be booked well in advance so please let the organiser know if you would like to visit.
The main event is free to RPS members but there will be some costs involved. Parking in central Liverpool typically costs around £2.50 per hour. The return train fare to Crosby costs around £4.00.
