Famous for its role in the 18th-century slave trade, Liverpool is officially a Maritime Mercantile City and UNESCO World Heritage site. History and culture buffs should explore the famous sites that were so important in the city’s maritime history, including the Albert Dock and Pier Head. Among the complex of dock buildings, you’ll find numerous attractions that we highly recommend visiting, including the Museum of Liverpool, the Tate Liverpool art gallery, and the International Slavery Museum.
The most famous Liverpudlians of all time, The Beatles are the most celebrated rock band in history—and they’re also synonymous with Liverpool! If you’re a music fan looking to connect with the beloved group while visiting the city, visit The Cavern Club where they rose to fame, and the dedicated Beatles Story museum. If you fancy something relaxed, sit back and enjoy a special Beatles bus tour, where you’ll drive past the real-life locations mentioned in their classics, including Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane.
In Liverpool, the only thing as important as music is sport! If you’re a sports fan, be sure to try your utmost to get tickets to a live game. The city has not one but two top tier soccer sides: Liverpool F.C. and Everton are both in the world-famous Premier League. You’ll remember the atmosphere and experience long after your trip to Liverpool is over.
A great way to admire Liverpool’s impressive skyline (the city is nicknamed “the New York of Europe”) is to take a ferry ride on the River Mersey. There are a range of boat tours that run along the river aimed at visitors, as well as public ferries that carry passengers across it. On the other side of the Mersey, there are a range of attractions for you to consider. The Wirral Transport Museum and Heritage Tramway is great for those with an interest in transport. If the weather is good during your visit to Liverpool, there’s also Wallasey Beach for an ocean stroll. Less
