Come to Liverpool

Liverpool has changed beyond all recognition since BAPS’ last Congress there in 1999 and BAPS is delighted to be returning in 2018. Touted as one of the most exciting places to visit in 2018 by both The Times and The Guardian, it has served as European Capital of Culture in 2008 and the rich heritage continues to grow. World renowned as the home of the Beatles, The Cavern Club, Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs  and the Albert Docks, you can now add the the World Museum with its exhibit of the Terracotta Warriors; Tate Liverpool featuring works by Egon Schiele and Francesa Woodman; the RIBA North for lovers of architecture.  Where else but Liverpool would you find Grade 1 listed men’s toilets opposite the home of a world class orchestra?
