Library
“This is no ordinary library… take a break in the cafe, let the kids play on one of the XBOX’s or get some of the best views of Liverpool on the rooftop ! Liverpool Central Library also have a discovery room for children and often host storytelling and themed days. You need to see the Picton Reading room too, it’s like being on the set of Harry Potter !”

School
“The school was previously known as two separate schools Dovedale Junior School and Dovedale Infant School but has since merged. It is Dovedale Primary which is probably best known as the school which George Harrison, John Lennon and Lennon's lifelong pal Pete Shotton, attended. In the 1950s it had a very good reputation as a 'feeder' school for Liverpool grammar schools such as Quarry Bank High School and Liverpool Institute for Boys. In 2001, John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, donated £25,000 for school refurbishments. In September 2015 the two schools formally merged management, and are now recognised as a single school by the Department for Education, known as Dovedale Primary School.”
