The Museum of Liverpool

For a taste of local history, the Museum of Liverpool is an ideal first destination. Located on the iconic waterfront, this is a state-of-the-art facility that, according to Tripadvisor, is the first national museum dedicated to exhibiting the history of one specific city or region. Exhibits are devoted to local sports teams, the Beatles, a life-sized liverbird and more. 

Taking roughly one to two hours to fully explore the exhibits and an on-site café to meet your catering needs, the Museum of Liverpool should be near the top of any tourist’s list wanting to learn more about the famous city.

Tate Liverpool

The home of contemporary and modern art is located at the centre of Liverpool’s famous Royal Albert Dock, one of the city’s most famous landmarks. Tate Liverpool features an ever-changing collection of contemporary artworks, sculptures and works of photography. Basically, what works you view varies on when you go. 

The gallery also features an on-site café and gift shop, ensuring you have the complete modern art experience that you desire. Did I mention that the gallery is also completely free to enter?

Liverpool Christmas Market (2021)

Autumn is well on the way, and that only means Christmas is not much further away either. Due to the tightening of lockdown restrictions in 2020, it has been two years since the last Christmas market in Liverpool. The famous Christmas market is set to return in 2021 in a new location as the Liverpool Echo states, in St Johns Gardens and William Brown Street.  

The market will be opening from Friday 15th November until Monday 23rd December and will feature a number of festive-themed dining and gift stalls. So grab some tipple at the Teepee Bar and stop off at the Bavarian Grill for some festive feed!

Liverpool: 50-Minute Mersey River Cruise

Here is something a little slower paced for those who strive for something more relaxing on their visit to the bustling Mersey town. Have you ever heard the Gerry and the Pacemakers song Ferry Across the Mersey? Well, now you can experience the inspiration for the well-known tune. 

Experience Liverpool’s stunning skyline and famous landmarks with a front-row seat as you gently cruise down the River Mersey, courtesy of Mersey Ferries. Pass by the Liverpool Cathedral, the Liverbird Building, the Royal Albert Dock and much more. Just take a coat if you book a tour during the autumn and winter months.

Liverpool Bold Street

In our previous list, we included Liverpool ONE (L1) as a prime shopping and dining district for big brands and popular restaurant chains. Bold Street, however, is something of a direct contrast. 

Bold Street is one of the country’s most famous shopping streets, boosting the city’s largest collection of independent shops and restaurants. Take a stroll up the cobble-stoned street for some exquisite world food and eccentric clothing at the multicultural hub of the city. 

Final Words

Well, there you have it, five more tourist spots in Liverpool. Spending a weekend away, or longer in a new city is a good way to scratch that itch that many of us will have after having limited options for foreign exploration. Perhaps now you will consider Liverpool as your next destination.
