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
- 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.
- 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!
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
