Packed with award-winning city centre attractions, breathtaking coast and countryside and a cultural scene to rival the capital, you won't be short of things to do here.
Birthplace of The Beatles, Liverpool makes much of its four world-famous sons. From museums such as The Beatles Story, to the Magical Mystery Tour (a bus trip visiting famous Beatle-related landmarks such as Penny Lane and Strawberry Field), before making a stop at the legendary Cavern Club.
Liverpool Waterfront is another must-see. On top of spectacular views of the city, the area is home to a myriad of iconic cultural attractions, including the famous Liver Building, the Museum of Liverpool, and the Mersey Ferry, which is another great way to get a view of the city.
Liverpool ONE is one of Europe's leading retail and leisure destinations, set in the heart of Liverpool City Centre. It is home to over 160 stores, bars and restaurants, a 14-screen cinema, an indoor gold course and 5-acre Chavasse Park. There's a huge choice of shops and restaurants including John Lewis, Debenhams, Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar, Wahaca and Jamie's Italian - all on the doorstep of your new National Express coach station.
Just outside of the centre you’ll find Lord Street, lined with beautiful Victorian arcades, smart shops and boutiques.
On a shoestring: The Egg Café. A cosy, bohemian bolt hole, playing good tunes and serving homemade food.
Middle of the road: What’s Cooking? Surf n’ turf (and other tasty treats) found on the Albert Dock. Wear loose fitting waistbands....
Bigger budgets: Fraiche. Modern French cuisine with a twist, served in elegant surroundings.
For kids fun, or a rest for adults, Liverpool has more than 43 playgrounds and play areas across the city. You could even head to Sefton Park, home to the Victorian Sefton Park Palm House, and Calderstones Park, which are both wonderful spots to enjoy a picnic.
