15 things for your sunny weekend in Liverpool (16-18 July 2021)

3 years ago

It feels a bit weird not having the stress of the footy anymore, but in a good way, because it’s super-sunny so there’s no need to be in front of the telly.

If you can drag yourself away from getting a tan in the garden, here are 15 things to do in and around Liverpool this weekend …

Wild Shore returns to the Dock

If you fancy having some on-the-water fun with the family at the Albert Dock then Wild Shore’s got loads of it. There’s the amazing inflatable obstacle course to have a go on, or if you want something a bit less bouncy then you can try the stand-up paddle boards, mini boats or pedalos.
