St Anne's Cathedral
St Anne's Cathedral is a Roman Catholic Cathedral and the seat of the Bishop of Leeds. The current Cathedral dates from 1904 and is a Grade 2 listed building.
The focal point of this Cathedral is the sanctuary, which features a free-standing high altar that is constructed from Italian marble. The altarpiece in the Lady Chapel was originally installed in the old Cathedral that stood on the same site and dates from 1842. The Cathedral is free to visit and is open daily from 7.15am until 6.15pm
Liverpool John Lennon Airport
Liverpool Airport is one of the oldest in the UK, having been officially opened in 1933. It was renamed Liverpool John Lennon Airport in 2001 when extensive refurbishment was undertaken, and a statue of Lennon is in the main passenger walkway. It is the first airport in the UK to be named after an individual.
The airport now handles more than 5 million passengers a year with scheduled services to 69 UK and Europe destinations. Holiday charter flights increase the traffic in the summer season. Two of Europe's largest low-cost airlines - easyJet and Ryanair - use Liverpool as a base.
Motorway links are close to the airport and regular bus services operate to the centres of Liverpool and Manchester, and surrounding towns. Liverpool city centre is only 7 miles.
The terminal provides the usual range of shops, taxis and car hire outlets, as well as a conference centre on site. Wi-fi has recently been introduced throughout. The terminal is often used for art and photography exhibitions.
The Friends of Liverpool Airport provide tours of the airport (bookable in advance) which consist of a 45 minute presentation of the history of the airport and a one hour walking tour of the facilities.

South Lakes Wild Animal Park
Since it opened in 1994 this zoo park in the south of Cumbria has been involved in major conservation and animal breeding programmes.

There are demonstrations and hands-on exhibitions given by the keepers. The park is home to both the Sumatran Tiger Trust and the Wildlife Protection Foundation. A highlight of feeding time is the climbing of tall poles by the tigers to reach their meat, a device to keep them exercised. The park has a cafe serving fast food, a gift shop and a large picnic area.
