Getting to these Liverpool City Region destinations this summer is Better By Bus
2 years ago
With summer on the way we can’t wait to get back out and make the most of what Liverpool City Region has to offer – and there’s no shortage of places to visit and things to do and see.
From natural beauty spots to fun-filled attractions and mouth-watering menus at a host of restaurants and bars, there’s tons to tick off the list.
It’s hard to know where to start – but one thing that’s certainly easy is knowing how to get there! Forget hassled-filled car journeys, forking out a fortune to fill up the fuel tank, or joining frustrating queues for the car park – because it really is Better by Bus.
You’re guaranteed flexible, affordable transport to get you to where you want to go – and you can even get free on-board Wi-Fi to help plan the itinerary as you travel to all these fabulous places.
Liverpool City Centre
The city centre is teeming with incredible attractions right on your doorstep, from fun experiences to fantastic food from all over the world on Bold Street and Castle Street, or drinks down on the amazing waterfront.
If you want culture, it’s also there in abundance, with exciting exhibitions at galleries like Tate Liverpool or World Museum Liverpool, or theatre performances and music concerts at too many venues to mention.
There’s something for everyone when you’re ready to embark on your next adventure with regular services running right across town to get you there. And there are two main bus stations, Queen Square and Liverpool ONE (where you can shop till you drop and get everything back home safely on the bus!).
Marine Point Leisure Complex is a huge go-to place in New Brighton with shops, restaurants, a cinema, bowling, and more; and its stunning stretch of golden sand also makes it a top destination for families and day-trippers. Kids love playing on the Black Pearl, a community-built driftwood boat, and don’t forget the 19th century Grade II listed Perch Rock Fort and Perch Rock lighthouse.
New Brighton’s home to great independent restaurants and bars, loads of must-see street art – and it’s less than half an hour away on the bus from Liverpool city centre.
It’s only a quarter of an hour away from town on the bus and there are loads of things to see and do: Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ iron men statues and the beautiful beach where all 100 of them live for a start.
And, when the fresh air fuels your appetite, try any of its fab restaurants like So Salsa, The Pioneer and Mustard & Co.
Prescot’s become another great place for foodies with restaurants like Pinion from Gary Usher.
It’s also close to Knowsley Safari and the brilliant new Shakespeare North Playhouse, which also happens to be a short stride from Prescot Bus Station!
There are so many favourite and brand-new places you can get to with ease across the whole of the city region – and it’s not just hassle and cash you’ll save by getting the bus. You’ll be caring for the planet because 70% of buses in our region are powered by electric, hybrid or low-emission engines, so it’s environmentally friendly too.
