Liverpool is one of the biggest and well known cities in the UK. It continues to be a popular choice for stag parties and hen do's, and the city is best known for its culture - with many top museums located here, its sports - Liverpool FC and Everton football clubs and perhaps the city was made famous by the fab 4 - The Beatles.
While Liverpool is a great weekend destination, here we show how it is easy to see the city in as little as 24 hours!
There's so many hotels to choose from, from Premier Inn to 5 star boutique hotels and we would recommend you stay at a hotel near to the Royal Albert Dock and Pier Head as that's where you'll mainly want to be sightseeing.
The Royal Albert Dock
The Royal Albert Dock was completed in 1846, and dominated the worlds trade, and now it is the vibrant heart of Liverpool's historic waterfront with shops, restaurants, bars, and the Maritime and TATE museums
There's plenty of other musuems in addition to the TATE and Maritime Museum to visit, including the amazing Museum of Liverpool, International Slavery Museum, and The Beatles Museum. Most museums rely on voluntary donations as payment
The Beatles were an English rock band, formed in Liverpool in 1960 and they are still regarded as the most influential bands of all time! They played almost 300 gigs at the local Cavern Club, the club has now relocated but still hosts open mic nights and up and coming bands. A must for Beatles lovers is to visit the Beatles Statue at Pier Head, which was created in 2015. Again, you must visit the Beatles Museum at the Albert Dock too!
Architecture and History
With over 2,500 listed buildings, Liverpool isn't short of amazing buildings, you will see many as you walk around the city, but be sure to visit The Three Graces at Pier Head, these consisit of the Royal Liver Building, The Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building
There's fine dining, Irish pubs and street stalls to choose from including Indian, Lebanese and American to the famous local 'Scouse' dish which is stewed meat and vegetables. Our recommendations would be Mowgli and street food from the Albert Docks
And you can't visit Liverpool without visiting the world famous football team of Liverpool FC. Even if they aren't your team, it's a must to visit
It is easy to get around the city on foot, and easy to find all the locations mentioned above (to visit Anfield stadium you will want to jump on a bus or car) just pop the names into google maps.
