15 brilliant things for your weekend in Liverpool


The weekend’s here and, say it quietly so as not to jinx it, but there could be a heatwave on the way for Sunday too.

Watch your weekend guide above brought to you from one of Liverpool’s most picturesque venues, The Watering Can which serves up breakfast and lunch everyday amongst the beautiful surroundings of Green Bank Park.

Here are 15 more things you could be doing in Liverpool and a bit further afield this weekend …

Food at Maggie Fu’s on Hanover St


We waited ages for Maggie to arrive in Liverpool ONE but now it’s here and it’s gorgeous. There’s all the favourites from Smithdown Road, including the ramen bowls, curries and some incredible salt and pepper chicken, and it’s open from 1pm at weekends.

More info here. 

Drinks at the Garden Bar at Bombed out Church

Bombed Out Church

The Garden Bar has been packing them in, especially when the sun’s out, because it’s just such a lovely location with a great choice of beers, cocktails, wine and Turncoat gin. Book online and you’ll be supporting the church upkeep too.

Watch the Euros at Baltic Beer Garden

One for footy fans still dreaming of England winning some silverware – the Euros kick off this weekend so head to Baltic Beer Garden to watch the matches outdoors with some beers on a. HUGE new LED screen.

Get spooky with Shiverpool

Shiverpool Summer Shivers are back and they’re a perfect way to fill up the balmy nights with tales from the dark side. Hope Street Shivers is running this weekend from 8.30pm and there’s the promise of meandering into the depths of the Necropolis, Liverpool’s Secret Garden.

Watch Cruella, Dream Horse, Tom & Jerry or Peter Rabbit 2 at Plaza Cinema, Crosby

It’s been fantastic to see films on a big screen again and there’s lots to choose from now especially if you want to take the kids – pick up some popcorn at the Plaza this weekend and enjoy the new releases.

Grab brunch at 52, Rose Lane

No need to go into town for brunch because if you’re in or around south Liverpool, 52 Rose Lane has baguettes, wraps, burgers and big plates if you’re more on the lunch side or their full English, waffles, omelettes and breakfast burritos are fabulous.

Sunday Roast at Jimmy’s Liverpool

Sundays wouldn’t be quite right without a roast, even when it’s hot out, so get to Jimmy’s opposite the Bombed Out Church for one of the best in Liverpool. A teapot of gravy and Yorkies the size of your head, it’s got to be done.

More info here.

The must-try brownies at FIKA, Woolton Road

Pictures of these on Insta are enough to get you on your way to Childwall, hoping they don’t sell out before you get there. You never know what type you’ll get – the fudgy Twix ones are amazing – just park the diet until Monday.

More info here.

Footy-golf, log flumes or miniature railways at Southport Pleasureland

If we do get scorchio weather then it’ll definitely be one for Southport, on the beach and heading to Pleasureland – it’s a brilliant day out, there’s loads for all ages to do and it feels really safe. Book advanced tickets online.

Tuck into Liverpool’s brand-new food hall the GPO

If you can’t decide what you fancy or you want to be among the first to check out Liverpool’s newest – and biggest – food hall, go to GPO at Metquarter and you’ll find a dozen of the best up-and-coming independent traders to try.

Relax into Liverpool’s music history at the new Frankie Goes to Hollywood exhibition at the BME

Music legends Frankie Goes to Hollywood are celebrated in Frankie Say 1984! so if you love the band, or 80s music, this one’s a must-go, featuring stage clothes, memorabilia, instruments and Frankie Say merch. Watch our guide from a few weeks ago above to see inside the exhibition.

Go bowling at Roxy Ball Room in Rainford Square

Get your mates or the family together and get your strike arm all ready for an afternoon or night of bowling at Roxy Ball Room. Then grab some pizza by the slice because all that pin action will get you hungry.

Try Laros, the new Greek on Bold Street

If you’ve never had Greek street food before, now’s your chance because that’s the speciality at Laros which has just opened up on Bold Street. Laros means delicious food apparently, so think gyros, souvlaki and loukoumades which are amazing little Greek doughnuts.

Order afternoon tea for collection from Mrs Danvers

Mrs Danvers Café is a real gem of a place and it does the most delicious afternoon tea. Everything’s homemade (who doesn’t love a freshly-baked scone?) with such care and the teas always look beautiful too. Order from LIDS or email [email protected]

Catch up on Liverpool Narcos or BBC One’s Time

If you can drag yourself inside, catch up on some top telly from this past week. Liverpool Narcos, a fascinating documentary series about the city’s drug trade, is on iPlayer and so’s Jimmy McGovern’s brilliant Time starring Sean Bean and Stephen Graham.
