Published 7 May 2019

Discover Liverpool by coach...

This gem in the North West is mostly known for its musical history, however, there's plenty more to the city of Liverpool. Of course, its record-breaking football team is another jewel in its crown but did you know that Liverpool is also a Unesco World Heritage city? All this and more has helped mould the Mersey into a cultural hub with a wide range of amazing things to see and do.

So check out below our list of 3 of the best things to do in Liverpool and see if it takes your fancy!

Baltic Triangle

1. Explore the trendy Baltic Triangle 

Art, photography, fashion, music, and architecture all surrounded by cool bars and eateries, sound good? Well, that’s Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle in a nutshell! Located just a stone’s throw away from the Albert Docks, this trendy up-and-coming area in the city has grown to be a huge favourite with the locals.

If you’re looking for something fun and different to do in Liverpool there's plenty here to keep you occupied. With a range of places such as Ghetto Mini Golf, a Peaky Blinders themed bar, vintage markets and tons of delicious restaurants, the hardest part is choosing where to go first.

Only an 11-minute walk from Liverpool coach station, the Baltic Triangle is the perfect place to spend a day in Liverpool.


Liverpool Docks

2. Head down to the docks

You can’t go to Liverpool without visiting its famous waterfront, with so many attractions spread around the docks it’s the perfect way to spend a day in the city.

There's plenty to do for everyone down the waterfront, from Mattel Play for the kids to the exceedingly scouse Beatles Museum for all you music lovers. However, if you’re more of an art fan then the Tate will be number one on your list. Filled with inspiring and thought-provoking modern art, a walk around this gallery will fulfil all your cultural needs.

After an activity-filled morning, a bite to eat will be needed to fuel your afternoon and there is no shortage of tasty food at Liverpool’s Albert Dock. With a wide variety of fantastic restaurants serving up food from around the globe you can tuck into grub from Thailand, Cuba, Italy, Spain and the USA. One of our favourites is the delectable Rosa’s Thai Café, a new addition to the waterfront but already a huge hit.

Only a short 7-minute walk from the coach station, Liverpool’s waterfront is a great place to start your Liverpool experience.


Anfield Stadium

3. Visit Liverpool's famous football team 

If you didn’t know already, the people of Liverpool are hugely into sport and football tops the lot. Home to two teams, Liverpool and Everton FC, the city is steeped in football history with Liverpool FC being over 125 years old!

Anfield Stadium is the home of Liverpool Football Club and is a great attraction to spend the day with friends and family. With daily tours of the stadium every couple of hours you can explore the clubs history in the museum, sit inside the dressing room and even walk down the famous tunnel!

There are also handsets for the kids to play interactive games and activities whilst you walk around the stadium.

The tour is must see for any avid football fan and is a solid deal at only £20 a ticket (per adult).
