Some ideas for your next trip to Liverpool

Liverpool is the perfect city to visit for a family day out, catering for all members of the clan with an abundance of amazing things to see and do.

 

The Albert Dock:

The famous enclave which was once a state of the art centre of industry for the city fell into disuse before it was reinvigorated during the 80s – it’s now a top tourist destination for the city. The regenerated dock hosts:

  • The Beatles Story, a museum dedicated to preserving the memory of the Fab Four.
  • Tate Liverpool, the most popular gallery of modern and contemporary art outside London.
  • The Merseyside Maritime Museum highlights the proud and lengthy maritime history of Liverpool and Liverpool's place in the maritime history of Britain. Children especially enjoy the border and customs display, focused on the world of smuggling and crime fought by border agencies over the years.

That's not to mention the variety of restaurants and niche shops that line the Dock – and it’s all just a short walk from the city centre!

Ness Gardens

Perfect for everyone. Perched on a hill above the South coast of the Wirral is Ness Gardens, with 64 acres of horticulture designed to give everyone something to enjoy. They also offer special dispensation for anyone with mobility problems or other disabilities. 

 

Liverpool's Three Graces

The city's Three Graces are the most identifiable parts of the city's ever more beautiful waterfront. They're comprised of the Royal Liver Building (home to the eponymous Liver Birds), the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool building. Best enjoyed on a leisurely ferry trip down the Mersey.

 

Walker Gallery and World Museum

In the heart of the city, easily found and easily accessible, the World Museum and Walker Gallery are open to the public for free and sit right next to each other. The World Museum is great if you have young children; an aquarium, bug house, and hands-on history section await. The Walker is more a sedate experience but hosts one of England's largest art collections in a beautiful and expansive museum.

 

The Cathedrals

Liverpool has two major cathedrals, the giant sandstone Anglican Church, and the modern Catholic cathedral just down the road. Both cathedrals have a fascinating back story and merit a visit inside and out.

 

Anfield Stadium

Maybe not everyone in your family is a football fan, but some may appreciate Anfield's place in the annals of football history on the daily guided tours of the ground.

Sefton Park

Just outside of the city centre is a 235-acre swathe of lovingly maintained public park land. Surrounded by the Victorian homes of the city’s’ past maritime traders, it feels a world apart from the rest of Liverpool.

I have been planning this trip since some months and I still have no idea about it. It is a big place and I don’t know how many days it will need to explore it completely. I don’t want to miss out anything. This is a onetime chance for me. manufactured homes
