Liverpool is a city in the north of England, which developed as a port in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. With a population of about 435,000, its inhabitants are colloquially known as 'Scousers' after a local type of stew; thanks to its history as a trading city, the Liverpudlian population is particularly diverse. In modern times, Liverpool has been associated with music as the home city the Beatles, and has emerged as a strong cultural centre, being co-recipient of the European Capital of Culture title in 2008.
