About Liverpool

Including tips for the best time to visit Liverpool

Liverpool is a city of rapid growth and a hotspot for pop culture.

Liverpool used to be one of the UK’s most important trade and migration ports, and today 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 around the world. The Royal Albert Dock is known for its Liverpool ONE shopping mall and is home to the Beatles Story museum. Learn all about Liverpool’s most famous musical export, then take a magical mystery tour of all the places associated with the "fab four" around town. From childhood homes and schools to Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields, the city center is full of sites that inspired some of their most memorable songs. And if that’s not enough, catch a gig at the legendary Cavern Club, where The Beatles often performed before they were famous.

For many, Liverpool isn't only synonymous with music, but soccer as well. If you can score tickets, be sure to catch a game at Anfield—home to Liverpool FC—or else take a tour of the club’s museum to learn about its historic achievements.

Even if you spent eight days a week here, you could still find plenty more things to do and see, but Liverpool can even be enjoyed over a quick breakl

Great people, lively places and you could walk anywhere and find a lovely spot to sit/drink/eat/chat etc .. Also great value e.g. pint Guinness and large dry white wine only £7.50 in city centre with free live entertainment (Lanigans Irish pub)

Mowgli restaurant on Water Street as good an Indian culinary experience as I've had in years. Central Liverpool is easy to walk around and teeming with a terrific variety of restaurants, stylish cocktail bars and hidden, out of the way pubs. The city is full of beautiful old buildings all leading down to a majestic waterfront.

Great city!

June 24, 2017

Great city! Fabulous shops, bars & restaurants. Went solely for the Beatles experience, Magical Mystery Tour, Beatles Tour & Cavern a must see! Hard Days Night Hotel is perfectly located for centre of town & attractions but parking is down at Q Park near Pier Head, a 10 min walk away. Blakes Restaurant at the hotel very good & RJB Restaurant excellent!

Liverpool is a fantastic place to stay.

June 24, 2017

Liverpool is a fantastic place to stay. There are so many things to see and do. Galleries, museums, brilliant restaurants and theatres. Lovely architecture and Liverpool One has all the shops and shopping you could want. The people are friendly and welcoming and it is a pleasure to visit Liverpool and enjoy all the charms and attractions it offers. Nice places to eat Bistro Franc and Jamie Olivers on Paradise street. Lovely organic cafe and shop with vegan options LIV on Bold St. Great places to stay The Richmond and Hotel Indigo, Transport around Town is easy with most places accessible on foot, hop on a bus and lots of Taxi ranks, drivers are chatty and fun. Parking is plentiful and not too expensive. Town centre can be difficult by car as it is busy and lots of no entry and one way system you need to get used to. Love liverpool!

I love Liverpool always have a great time when we come here.

I love Liverpool always have a great time when we come here. My favourite place to eat is Casa Italia, you need to book if going in the evenings as very busy and have to queue in the street. And on the other side of the road sitting on a bench is a statue of Elenor Rigby sculpted by Tommy Steele always worth crossing the road to look at. Another favourite place to eat is Spice City just a few doors away from Casa Italia. Friendly staff and good food. Neither of the restaurants are in your face and neither are over expensive. Our fav place to stay is the Premier Inn on Vernon Street. We have stayed in PI at the Albert Docks not up to normal PI standards and very expensive also stayed for one night and one night only The Hard Days Night Hotel, very nice, beautiful rooms but thought that you paid ott for the room's obviously I know it is a Beatles theme hotel for which you have to pay more, but still think it was a lot of money and wouldn't recommend the restaurant. Lovely and very friendly staff there, though couldn't fault them at all, same as the PI in Albert Docks lovely friendly staff. When visiting Liverpool I would recommend going on a bus tour of Liverpool. Its takes about hour, hour and a half (can't actually remember how long it took) but very informative and interesting
