Liverpool is home to Europe’s oldest Chinese community. So, it’s no surprise that you’ll find the best noodles in town here.

Centred on Mathew Street, this is the boisterous birthplace of the Merseybeat. Join the jamboree of Beatlemaniacs and ’60s nostalgists at the Cavern Club. A replica of the bulldozed original, it still delivers a hard day’s night of music and merriment. If DJs and cocktail bars are more your scene, Victoria Street’s the place to be seen.

Hope Street Quarter
0.7 miles from city centre
This upscale area pops to life like a period TV show, all cobbled alleys and grand Georgian houses. Visit 60 Hope Street, a listed-townhouse turned swanky bistro that’s popular among theatre luvvies. Get in on the act and see a play at the Everyman Theatre. It’s been a bohemian breeding ground for politically-charged drama since 1964.

St George's Quarter
0.2 miles from city centre
This old Victorian hub seems stiff at first. Its numerous Neoclassical buildings are hard to tell apart. Yet the stoic columns of St George’s Hall stand out like Liverpool’s answer to the Parthenon. Here, passionate locals gather to celebrate famous football victories or show their political colours. Don’t be shy, the more the merrier!

“How boss is this place, la’? Eh, how long’s a piece of rope?!” This is a bar-hopper’s heaven, and Scousers swear by Seel Street. Try the Shipping Forecast for gourmet burgers and hip craft beers. Then wiggle the wee hours away at Alma de Cuba’s church turned Carnival club. Its Sunday brunch with live gospel choir soothes any sore heads.

Liverpool is a city of rapid growth, with an infectious enthusiasm for pop culture.
Formerly one of the UK’s most important trade and migration ports, the city's focal point is the old docks. Here, the contemporary Museum of Liverpool traces the city’s roots, while the Tate Liverpool gallery showcases modern art from across the globe. The Royal Albert Dock is known for its Liverpool ONE shopping centre and being the home of the Beatles Story museum. You can learn all about Liverpool’s most treasured musical quartet here, or take a magical mystery tour of all the places associated with the fab four. From childhood homes and schools to Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields, the city centre is full of sites that inspired some of their most memorable songs. And if that’s not enough, you could watch a band play at the legendary Cavern Club, where The Beatles often performed before they were famous.
For many, Liverpool is not only synonymous with music but also football. If you can find tickets, be sure to catch a game at Anfield – home to Liverpool FC – or failing that, take a tour of the club’s museum to learn about its historic achievements.
You could spend eight days a week here, as The Beatles say, and still find plenty of things to do and attractions to see, but a short break is all it takes to get a good grasp on this vibrant city.

Liverpool is a truly wonderful city. Lots to see and do and really friendly people. If you are a Beatles fan then this is obviously the place for you. If you aren't, then there's still plenty to see and do. The docks area is especially good to visit with lots pf places to eat and drink. We ate at the Pump House in the docks area which is just one of many great places to eat and drink.
My friends and I love Liverpool, always plenty to do, easy to get around, loads of places to eat, love the outdoor bars especially the botanical gin garden, always try and stay in somewhere different & nowhere has disappointed, people are always friendly, can't wait to go again
one of the friendliest cities i have been to , so many shops , and so much to do , lots of oubs and charachters , we went off to the back street pubs and visit albert dock and Billy Furys statue , so much to do
There is so much to do & see in Liverpool. Castle Street & Bold Street areas are bursting with great places to eat & drink. There’s plenty of outside tables and chairs to eat outdoors and in a safe socially distanced way. Most of the museums and galleries are getting back to full access, we visited the Walker Art, World Museum and TATE. The staff in all venues where really friendly and helpful. All visitors we met gave respect to each other and kept a safe distance from each other. We had lunch in the TATE Cafe - it was fab. The staff really great and looked after us. We had tea, coffee, sandwiches & cake - all were fresh and delicious. There’s an awesome Liverpool Ices - Ice Cream van open for most of the day just past the Mersey Ferry terminal, we enjoyed having one his ice creams, very reasonably priced too. If you wanna take in some sights, a walk along the waterfront and round the Albert Dock is well worth the effort. Lots of the bars & restaurants are back open and the food looked wonderful. We’d already booked somewhere but would have happily tried any of the places in the Albert Dock. There’s a wonderful family business that makes bespoke leather bags in the Albert Dock. We couldn’t make our minds-up on which one to buy, so will have to visit again. This is well worth a visit as their wares look amazing! There’s pretty much something for everyone in Liverpool, if you love outdoors Yoga, Friday night at 7pm on the green outside the Cunard Building is a free open air yoga session every week! Treat yourself to a visit to the ‘Pool of Life’ that is Liverpool. ✌️❤️🙏
I work in Liverpool so I'm here quite a lot. Shops are great. Can't comment on the nightlife as I'm usually too tired after a 12 hour shift. Locals don't seem to care or aren't bothered about the Covid situation which can be really frustrating when trying to maintain social distancing.
The locals are always friendly and welcoming. Liverpool is a great city to visit so much to see and do, from sightseeing to eating out and visiting tourist attractions. We will be back in August for the bank holiday weekend.
