Liverpool is iconic for a number of reasons. Firstly, and perhaps most famously, it’s the home of the Beatles, and attracts music fans from around the world to come and visit the band’s hometown.
It’s not just music – the city is also a thriving sporting hub, home to two Premier League football teams. It’s also got one of the biggest collections of Grade I listed buildings in the UK and Britain’s largest cathedral.
We’ve listed five great attractions for you to visit in Liverpool. Let’s get going.
2. Merseyside Maritime Museum
If it’s shopping you’re after, the vast Liverpool One is home to retail outlets ranging from high street to high end, including two of the UK’s favourite department stores. You can also visit the Liverpool FC store, as well as the Everton Two Shop. If all that retail therapy makes you hungry, there are plenty of brilliant eateries to choose from, including Chaophraya and the wonderful Yard & Coop.
4. British Music Experience
The British Music Experience can be found in the Cunard Building at Pier Head. Opened in 2017, the museum tells the story of British Music, via the form of costumes, instruments, performance and memorabilia. From legends such as Freddie Mercury, Noel Gallagher and the Spice Girls through to modern music stars from the X Factor, the museum takes visitors on a hands-on journey through our nation’s musical background.
Calling all pirates – Smugglers Cove is a brilliant concept bar located on the Albert Dock. If you love rum, live music and great food you’re in for a treat, as all three come in abundance. You can even book to take on a cocktail, rum or ale tasting masterclass, helping you discover more about your favourite drinks. If you’re heading out around the Docks, you really should pop in to see what all the fuss is about.
