Six top places to visit in Liverpool

Liverpool is a unique and welcoming city that is a joy to visit. So hop in the car or on the train and explore all the wonderful things that this great city has to offer. 

School holidays seem to whip around in the blink of an eye. No sooner have you just gotten over one and six weeks later there’s another looming. Children need to be entertained but with time and money both at a premier, it’s not easy or convenient to simply jet off on holiday five or six times a year. 

The next big break in 2020 are the Easter holidays. They run for a little over two weeks, which historically is not the sunniest month of the year – here or on mainland Europe. So despite the British love affair with Spain, it’s simply not hot or sunny enough to lounge around while the kids play in the pool.  

Plans to venture further afield for guaranteed sunshine come with a hefty price tag. It’s not uncommon for most travel companies to now charge at least £1000pp for an all-inclusive weekly package. And if you happen to be family of five the cost is almost prohibitive. 

That is why so many families choose to stay in the UK for the majority of the school breaks. However, planning endless activities and days out can be stressful so why not take a look at a break in Liverpool. There is a huge amount to see and do to keep the whole family entertained. 

Here we have listed our top six favourite activities to do over the Easter break.    

1. The Beatles Story
With a near perfect score from over 8,400 reviews on Tripadvisor, The Beatles Story should be top of your list. Celebrating the incredible impact the Fab Four had on the world, this is an interactive experience and the world’s largest permanent exhibition dedicated to John, Paul, Ringo and George.  

2. Liverpool FC, Anfield
There isn’t a football fan in the world that hasn’t heard of Liverpool FC. Playing at Anfield Stadium, the seventh largest in the UK, the club has been based there since their first game in 1892. 

With the club on the verge of their first Premier League win in 30 years, the celebrations have already begun. And you can be a part of them as you explore this incredible venue. Take in the history and culture of over 130 years of football and visit the famous ‘Kop’, the fanzone, or the huge superstore. If you are really lucky, you may even be able to get tickets to a game!

3. Liverpool One
If retail therapy sounds like a dream day out for you then Liverpool One will be right up your street. It is an incredible shopping space that sits on over a million square feet and is packed with over 170 different stores. 

From high-end designers to high street staples, Liverpool One is a shoppers dream. Just make sure that you get your walking shoes on and your credit card ready!

4. Royal Albert Dock
Sitting on Liverpool’s historic waterfront, the Royal Albert Dock is home to the Tate Liverpool, the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the International Slavery Museum and all of them are worth a visit. 

With iconic buildings and monuments, once you’ve explored the history of the dock, you can stay a little longer and simply relax or indulge in some incredible food from one of the many eateries that are based there.

5. Aintree Racecourse
Home to the world-famous Grand National, Aintree Racecourse is a must for racing and sports fans. Or even those who just love a great day out. This year the race takes place on April 4th 2020 so just in time for the Easter break. 

It’s a fantastic day out for all the family but you have to book your tickets early. Over 150,000 people attend the Grand National Festival every April so it gets sold-out very quickly! 

6. Liverpool Cathedral
Considered one of the great buildings of the world, Liverpool Cathedral is a master class in architecture. Taking over 74 years to build, it is the largest cathedral in the UK and the fifth largest in the world. 

It is also one of the world’s tallest non-spired churches and is a Grade I listed building. The sheer scale of the cathedral is incredible and no visit to Liverpool is quite complete with a visit to it. 

Liverpool is a unique and welcoming city that is a joy to visit. So hop in the car or on the train and explore all the wonderful things that this great city has to offer.
