From shopping to dining & theatre, Liverpool is all set to welcome you this Christmas
2 years ago
The Christmas lights are twinkling, the trees are decorated and all the stores have opened their doors. It may be a different Christmas for all of us in Liverpool this year, but there’s still plenty of festive spirit.
Thousands of lights line the streets throughout the city centre, from Bold Street, Church Alley, Lord Street and Castle Street, to Whitechapel, Paradise Street, Chapel Street, Tithebarn Street, Richmond Street and Exchange Flags.
As well as the main tree at Church Street, there is the LED tree in Williamson Square, and another tree in St Paul’s Square.
The window displays of stores in the city centre are dressed for Christmas. In store, each has introduced Covid safe measures, including hand sanitizer stations, social distancing measures and new ways to move around the store to keep everyone protected. Everyone, from staff to customers, is encouraged to wear a mask indoors and in busy areas.
If you’re doing your bit and coming into the city centre to shop local then make sure you plan your journey in advance. Come in at quieter times, like in the morning or evening, when it will not be as busy. Many stores have extended their opening hours in the run up to Christmas so check online before you visit. Bring your mask and your hand sanitizer with you if you’re visiting the city centre to help keep yourself, and others, safe.
To get a little Christmas inspiration, Liverpool BID Company has a special Advent Calendar selecting some of the gifts or special days out you can plan for you and your family this festive season.
You can also join in with a celebration of 100 years of Liverpool Memories, a special project telling a few of the stories of Liverpool’s high streets over the decades.
