How to embrace the single life in Liverpool
Single in Liverpool

Let’s be honest there’s nothing worse this time of year than than witnessing all those lovey-dovey couples parading around town, with pink hearts everywhere and pesky little cherubs shooting arrows.

But whether you’re still searching for “the one”, or happily flying solo, being single in Liverpool doesn’t have to be daunting… embrace it!

Liverpool offers loads of opportunities for self-discovery, growth, and entertainment, from exploring cultural hotspots and discovering hidden gems, to meeting new people.

One of the best aspects of being single is the freedom to explore the city at your own pace. Take advantage of Liverpool’s rich cultural scene by visiting museums, art galleries, and historic landmarks solo.

Take a look at some ideas below for you to have a date with the city:

Go back in time at World Museum

This family run Vietnamese restaurant on Renshaw Street is PHO-nomenal! 

Bad jokes aside, the food in here is out of this world, busting with flavour, massive portions, and very reasonably priced.

The friendly atmosphere is perfect for dining solo in the city.

Be brave and dip your spring rolls into their dad’s homemade chilli oil… he has to wear protective gear when making it, it’s that spicy!
