When You Arriving
A great place to start your day in Liverpool is at the Albert Dock where there are fantastic views and plenty happening, from workshops to re-enactments there is something for everyone to enjoy. You can find details of planned events at Liverpool ONE or Visit Liverpool.
There are also many attractions in this area such as The Beatles Story Experience for music lovers, and the Maritime Museum for a little history of the Docks.
Once you have enjoyed a morning around the dock it may be time to grab a bite to eat.
Food and Drink
There are plenty of places to enjoy a good meal in Liverpool; if you are at The Albert Dock then you may decide to visit What’s Cooking or The Smugglers Cove, or you can take a walk over to Liverpool ONE, where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from.
Here you will find a range of eating options from fast food to fine dining; and, you can take to the shops for a spending spree or browse once full. Alternatively, you may want to leave eating until a little later and in that case there is a range of afternoon tea options – great for a day with the girls.
As we see the afternoon arrive it’s time for a spot of sightseeing. If you don’t fancy walking around a large city then you can enjoy a ride on the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour, especially if the weather is bad!
Although, walking can be a great way to enjoy the surroundings and get a feel for the famous architecture that can be found in this marvellous city.
If you enjoyed your time at The Beatles Museum then taking a walk to the famous Matthew Street is one thing you must do, here you will find The Cavern Club and John Lennon Statue for great photo opportunities – cameras at the ready!
Another option is to take a 16-minute walk from Liverpool ONE to Liverpool Cathedral. This is the largest cathedral in the UK, and the tallest tower is the perfect place to enjoy panoramic views of the city.
