New to the UK

The first weeks and months in a new country can be disorienting.

Take your time to adjust to your new surroundings. Grab yourself a map of the city and get exploring, take a bus, ride the train and jump on the ferry - see the Getting about section for more details.

Try shopping where the locals shop – not only will this save you money it will make you feel more at home. Try making a pan of famous Liverpool Scouse, it will expand your culinary palate in ways you can't predict!
