Liverpool is one of the liveliest, most vibrant cities in the UK, and one that I just love to visit. It is packed with a fabulous mixture of culture and heritage, stunning architecture that can literally make you gasp, but it is also a place to really enjoy yourself and let your hair down, and with great shopping too you can seriously do some damage to your credit cards as you indulge in some retail therapy.
Liverpool shopping haven Liverpool One has recently launched a campaign called ‘I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here’ ,a guide to everything happening across Liverpool over the coming months and will be the ultimate guide to visiting Liverpool. So, to celebrate the guide, I thought I would tell you some of the best things to do in Liverpool.
Anfield Stadium Tour
You don’t have to be a Liverpool fan to appreciate Anfield. It is a fabulous ground with a rich history and a superb museum attached to it. The museum has a poignant tribute to the victims who died in at Hillsborough, and you have to remember to touch the sign above the tunnel before you get out onto the pitch or else you will never score for Liverpool!
All things Beatles
You couldn’t really do a trip to Liverpool without paying visits to the sights and sounds associated with the Cities favourite sons. The Beatles dominate Liverpool, so a trip to the infamous Cavern is certainly top of every Beatles fans must do list. The Beatles Story is a detailed tour and rememberence of the Fab Four, or you could simply enjoy one of the walking tours that take in all those key places in the history of the group.
The Albert Docks
The renovated Albert Docks are now one of the jewels in Liverpool’s crown, with a great range of bars and restaurants, and also home to the Beatles memorobilia shop where you can buy literally anything to do with the Fab Four. The Albert Docks are beautiful, certainly one of my favourite places to visit in Liverpool. If you are visiting the Docks, don’t forget to get your culture fix at the Tate Gallery.
The World Museum
If you are visiting Liverpool with kids, a visit to the World Museum is a must. It is literally packed with thousands of exhibits, ranging from precious artefacts to interactive natural history displays that will keep children enthralled for hours. There is also a planetarium for those who always feel happier under the stars.
