From a huge modern shopping centre to streets full of independent shops to the winding streets of clubs from where the Beatles rose to fame, the riverside city of Liverpool is a wonderful mixture of things to do, see and taste. Due to its proximity to my hometown, I tend to just spend a day exploring the city, but one could easily turn Liverpool into a short city break.

What To Do

  1. The Bluecoat Built in 1717, the Bluecoat holds the title of the oldest building in the city, which has now been transformed into a creative exhibition space showcasing all kinds of work.
  2. Bold Street The main artery through Liverpool’s independent scene, Bold Street is packed on all sides with independent shops, restaurants and bars. My favourite place to eat in the city!
  3. The Docks Heading down through the commercial quarter you’ll eventually end up at the picturesque docks, housing both the infamous Museum of Liverpool and Tate Liverpool.

What To Eat

  1. Maray A cosy restaurant for communal dining, Maray offers a selection of small sharing dishes, with a menu which inspired by a fusion of Scandinavian dishes with eastern flavours.
  2. Love Thy Neighbour A laid-back spot to grab a few smaller dishes to share between friends, or just to enjoy a coffee in the vibrant atmosphere overlooking the top end of Bold Street.
