As people we are largely creatures of habit. We like to visit and re-visit the same places knowing that our time is precious so taking a chance on a new place may not make us as happy as the places we are already familiar with.
Of course, if that were the case all the time we would never experience anything new or different. And where is the fun in that?
Whether you already live in the UK or you are visiting on your holidays, one of the big cities that should be on your list is Liverpool. Steeped in culture, heritage and history, this great city is absolutely jam-packed with terrific thing to do and fun places to see.
- The Beatles Story
With a near perfect score from over 7,900 reviews on Tripadvisor, The Beatles Story should be top of your list. Celebrating the incredible impact the Fab Four had on the world, this interactive experience is the world’s largest permanent exhibition dedicated to John, Paul, Ringo and George.
- 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.
Now you can explore this incredible venue and take in the history and culture of over 130 years of football. Visit the famous ‘Kop’, the fanzone, or the huge superstore and if you are really lucky, you may even be able to get tickets to a game!
- Peaky Blinders Tour
The hugely successful Peaky Blinders has been syndicated all over the world and now it’s your chance to experience the criminal underworld of the hit TV show. This four-hour tour is a must for fans.
It is also an excellent way to see more of Liverpool as the tour takes you to ten different filming locations across the city.
- Liverpool One
Calling all shoppers! Liverpool One is an incredible retail 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!
- Royal Albert Dock
No description I could conjure up would ever do the Royal Albert Dock any justice. It sits on Liverpool’s historic waterfront and is home to the Tate Liverpool, the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the International Slavery Museum.
And when you’ve explored the history of the dock, you can stay a little longer to take in an exhibition, shop or simply relax and indulge in some incredible food.
- 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.
But make sure you book your tickets early. Over 150,000 people attend the Grand National Festival every April so it gets sold-out very quickly!
- 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 building is incredible and no visit to Liverpool is quite complete with a visit to the Cathedral.
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.
