Whether you fancy a weekend of extravagance in a five-star hotel or a longer stay trying your luck out on the fairways of England’s Golf Coast, Liverpool has something for everyone.
The city is home to an iconic waterfront, the Fab Four and a clutch of the UK’s most fascinating museums. The bustling city centre also has a fantastic array of lively cafés and restaurants, great shopping at Liverpool 1 and top gigs at the O2 Academy. And those in search of a pint inside a beautifully preserved Victorian pub, won’t be disappointed either.
There is a great choice of different types of accommodation in Liverpool. The Titanic Hotel Liverpool is a wonderful four-star spa hotel inside a stunning red-brick, former rum and tobacco warehouse on Stanley Docks. The rooms are all designed in the same soothing colour scheme and come with Egyptian cotton sheets and rainfall showerheads.
The three-star Liner Hotel is close to all the waterfront attractions, and its 152 rooms all boast deep bathtubs, as well as free Wifi. Roomzzz at Iconinc Liverpool is a four-star aparthotel in the city centre and is perfect for longer stays. All the rooms come with kitchenettes and free Wifi, and there’s an on-site fitness centre. There are also plenty of boutique hotels in Liverpool, many in the city centre.
When it comes to sightseeing, the city’s iconic waterfront, with its famous Liver Building, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Liverpool. Forming part of the UNESCO Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City, there are lots of guided tours that can help you discover more about its rich and varied history.
The city’s history is also told in a trio of outstanding waterfront museums. The Museum of Liverpool uses over 6,000 objects to bring the city’s culture and social heritage to life in a fun and lively way that kids will love too. The Mersey Martine Museum concentrates on Liverpool’s role as one of the world’s greatest ports, while the International Slavery Museum pulls no punches as it tells another side of the city’s history.
If photography is your passion, the Open Eye Gallery, an independent, not-for-profit contemporary gallery, is not to be missed.
Another great way to see the waterfront is from the river itself, on a trip aboard one of the famous Mersey ferries. If you want to be at the heart of all this action, consider a hotel near Albert Dock.
With its cafés and shops, you should certainly make time to visit Albert Dock. Top attractions include the Tate Liverpool, where there’s a superb permanent exhibition alongside shows from some of the world’s greatest modern artists.
The Grade 1-listed dock is also home to The Beatles Story, a museum packed with enough memorabilia to keep the most ardent fan of the Fab Four happy. The city naturally makes the most of its four famous sons and there are city-wide tours that take in some of their favourite haunts, from Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields, to the childhood homes of Lennon and McCartney and, of course, the legendary Cavern Club where it all began. There’s more about British pop, from its early beginnings to the present day, at the British Music Experience, inside the Cunard Building on the Pier Head.
Other sites worth a visit include Liverpool’s two cathedrals. The breath-taking Anglican minster is the largest in Britain, while you can take a guided tour of the more modern Catholic cathedral, with its stunning stained glass. The Bluecoat, a contemporary arts centre inside a 300-year-old building, is also worth tracking down, as is the stunning Victorian palm house at Sefton Park.
Liverpool is close to England’s famous Golf Coast, and some of the best courses in the world. Don't be fooled by the name, the Formby Ladies Golf Club welcomes men and women alike. Founded in 1896, this club boasts a wonderful 18-hole course and a quirky clubhouse.
Not to be outdone, the Hillside Golf Course is set amid sand dunes and pine forests, and there’s the chance of a tipple at the 19th hole before retiring for the evening to one of the golf hotels in Liverpool.
