So, whilst waiting, we wandered around the waterfront.
The 'Echo' reports as follows - Liverpool's Albert Dock is just one of many sites around the world where couples clip their engraved padlocks.
Since the early 2000s the romantic gesture has become a worldwide phenomenon, with thousands of locks being placed on famous bridges including the Pont de l'Archeveche in Paris, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York, and the Ponte Milvio in Rome. In Liverpool a string of love locks have been fastened to railings alongside the Albert Dock.
Before the padlocks are clipped into place, they are typically engraved with initials or a personal message, and the key is then thrown away - usually into the river.
The Liverpool eye
|There is the Titanic, sleeps 9, perfect for a weekend break|
No orchestra, lifeboat optional
The anglican cathedral is just visible on the horizon
|Great places for coffee with a view of the Catholic cathedral in the distance|
|Lunch was nice, looking toward the Liver building.|
Coley fishcakes and green salad.
BUT - is this a sink or a urinal?
