2 years ago
Lockdown isn’t getting any easier is it and finding things to keep the boredom at bay is getting more difficult by the day.
Hopefully these ten ideas of things you can enjoy at home this week in Liverpool will help.
Party in your Pad
Punch Tarmey’s Live Stream
Punch Tarmey’s might be closed for now but that doesn’t mean you can’t carry on the party at home. Every Friday check out their live stream on which you’ll see their resident musicians performing all of your fave Punch Tarmey’s classics.
Beatles City Podcast
Think you know all there is to know about the Fab Four? Think again, as the Beatles City podcast shares the stories and secrets of the band that shook the world. Brought to you by Laura Davis and Ellen Kirwin of the Liverpool Echo, you’ll find exclusive interviews with the likes of Pete Best, Julia Baird and even Sir Paul McCartney, a fascinating insight into the life and times of Liverpool’s biggest export.

Whether you have got a dog or not the new Romans Market Dog Cafe on Riversadale Road in Otterspool makes the perfect pit stop for your daily walk. A host of hot drinks, gourmet breakfasts, Scouse, cakes and more are available for us humans, whilst your pooch can pick up a pupcake and wash it down with a pupaccino!
Greenland, Amazon Prime
If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that ANYTHING is possible including asteroid strikes on our planet. In Greenland which is now available on Amazon Prime you’ll find Gerard Butler fighting to save his family from an extinction level event, as a planet-destroying comet races to Earth. We give it a massive thumbs up, even if Mr. Butler does change his accent in pretty much every single scene!
We know, we have all been doing loops of Sefton Park everyday since New Year’s Eve, but you may not have stopped to take in some of the park’s hidden gems and most beautiful sights. With The Guide Liverpool’s walking tour you’ll see the park like never before as Richie the Ranger directs you to some of its best spots.
