It sure is, and it’s only one hundred ninety miles from the first Medusa Juice store and you can get all of your favourite e-liquids, equipment and their fashionable new clothing at either one of these as well as the Norwich location.

By that, I mean such interesting places as The Cavern Club, Mendips – John Lennon Home, 20 Forthlin Road – McCartney Home, and the Beatles Statue.

Liverpool is also home to two Premier League football clubs, Liverpool and Everton. Liverpool club is the only British club to have won five European Cups. Sporting is one of the other things Liverpool is best known for and every year, the Grand National is held at Aintree Racecourse, which lies just outside of the city.
The city was nominated as the annual European Capital of Culture in 2008 and in 2007 it celebrated its 800th anniversary.
Liverpool was comprised of seven streets and was originally mentioned in King John’s letters patent in 1207. It was he that planned the city, laying out the seven streets in an H plan.
The 17th century saw the first slave ship, Liverpool Merchant, head to Africa. Battle for the town waged on during the English Civil War, and Liverpool was made a Parish. Trade with the West Indies began to surpass that of Ireland and Europe and the River Dee began to silt up, helping to thrust Liverpool into a prosperous age, and both the slave trade as well as tobacco led to it becoming even more prosperous and helped it to grow into the city it would later become and is today. For periods during the 19th century, Liverpool even exceeded London’s wealth. It’s always been a popular immigrant destination from Ireland and Europe. In 1851 it was described as the New York of Europe. Liverpool is also the port of registry for the Titanic, and we all know how that ended up. Liverpool was also the site of England’s first provincial airport, it operated from 1930. An important strategic point during the second World War, Liverpool was recognized as such by both Hitler and Sir Winston Churchill. It was heavily bombed by the Germans, suffering a blitz, second only to that of London.
