2 years ago


ESCAPE the everyday – and Escape to Liverpool…

Of course, it’s the birthplace of the biggest rock and roll band of all time, the Beatles, but as well as that, its musical might, amazing arts and culture, and tons of top attractions make Liverpool a city that’s loved around the world.

It won’t take long for Liverpool to find its way into your heart and soul and if you’re planning a visit this summer, here’s 10 things that’ll make it the greatest getaway (and there’s more!):

1. Brilliant bevvies


Everyone loves a great night out and Liverpool’s got some of the best bars around, whether you fancy the perfect pint, the chance to get glammed up for cocktails and an Insta pic possibility, or where your favourite tipple is served with banging tunes or some great gaming.

2. Culture Capital


Museums, magical mystery tours, and the iconic St George’s Hall, are all part of Liverpool’s colourful heritage. There are plenty of places and activities that will take your breath away – two of the greatest football stadiums for a start, St John’s Beacon, and, one of the Three Graces, the Royal Liver Building with its 360 Tour and unmissable clock face that’s bigger than Big Ben’s!

3. Music (need we say more?)


You couldn’t visit a better city for a music-themed trip. We’ve got Beatles attractions galore, The British Music Experience telling the story of rock and pop, the Museum of Liverpool’s Wondrous Place Gallery celebrating our roll call of trailblazing entertainers, as well as fantastic theatres and music venues.
