Sunday Snap – Radio City Tower

We visited Newark Castle for last week's Sunday Snap. Known for its role in the Civil War I asked if Newark was a Royalist or Parliamentarian town and the answer is


Fighting with the right answer were Kara, Cheryl, Kirsty, Laura, Nadine, Susan and Kate.

This week we're off to a city that was designated an UNESCO City of Music in 2015. Along with being the home of the 'Mersey Beat' it is also known for its fine philharmonic orchestra. With such a musical heritage local radio stations were needed to play the music. After new commercial radio stations were legally allowed to start broadcasting 194 Radio City took to the airwaves in 1974. Since 2000 the station has broadcast from the Radio City Tower. It was formerly known as St. John's Beacon when it was opened in 1969. The original design of it allowed for a revolving restaurant with the roof used as an observation platform. To reach the top there are 558 stairs or alternatively there are two lifts which go from bottom to top in 30 seconds. Since 2011 the viewing gallery has been open to the public. On clear days it offers panoramic views across to north Wales on one side and Blackpool on the another. This week's question is

Which city is the Radio City Tower in?

We were joined last week by Kara sharing the recently cleaned up stream and a newly invested Beaver. Despite the cold weather Cheryl found a butterfly in her house. Along with a bit of snow fun Susan was out snapping the full moon. Also out in the snow was Laura and her well wrapped up crew.

  1. If it's Mersey Beat, it has to be Liverpool :)

  2. Mersey Beat, views of Blackpool an North Wales, it has to be Liverpool!

  3. Liverpool - don't remember noticing it there though when I last visited.

  4. Honestly have no a clue lol, my sense of geography = none :D

  5. I've never been to Liverpool before but with stars like the Beatles and Lulu you can understand why it is famed for its music. Mich x
