Liverpool boasts such a range of cultural and historical attractions, it can be tricky to know where to start. From historical tours to dining in modern districts, here are our top tips for getting the most out of your visit to this vibrant city.
Day 1: City Orientation
Begin your visit gaining an overview of Liverpool and exploring its iconic landmarks. Book a combination package to check off a number of top city experiences at a pace that suits you, or explore by foot, bike, or hop-on hop-off bus on a comprehensive sightseeing tour to avoid the hassle of advance planning. After a busy day, relax on a ferry across the Mersey, then indulge with dinner and drinks in trendy Ropewalks or the up-and-coming Baltic Triangle district to experience the city’s famous nightlife.
Day 2: An Alternative Perspective
Spend your second day discovering a different perspective on the city’s unique heritage, with a range of cultural tours and experiences available. Book ahead for the The Beatles Story to avoid disappointment, or learn more about the hometown of the Fab Four on a citywide Beatles tour. If you’re a football (soccer) fan, head to Anfield Stadium for a behind-the-scenes look at Liverpool’s team, while television fans can discover filming locations for the British series “Peaky Blinders.” Explore after dark to discover Liverpool’s ghostly legends and delve into the city’s hidden past.
Day 3: Above and Beyond
Gain insight into Liverpool’s cultural legacy while beating the crowds with a morning visit to one of the city’s many national museums. After lunch, take a break from the bustling streets and get out into nature in one of Liverpool’s public parks, or absorb aerial views of the cityscape from elevated vantage points such as Radio City Tower. Adventurers can take advantage of efficient transport links to easily explore wider North West England. Round off your visit with a comedy show to see the famous Scouse wit in action.
