Liverpool Attractions

If you are visiting Liverpool there are some great things places and attractions that nobody should miss. Although Liverpool has been a valuable UK port for hundreds of years, when Liverpool is mentioned most people think of the Beatles and the Mersey sound.

Liverpool is the home of the famous ‘fab’ four and one of the city’s attractions is the Beatle’s Magical Mystery Tour, named for one of their later albums. When you go on the mystery tour you travel the city in a bright yellow bus. Along the way you will listen to commentary about the places you see such as Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields, both places in Liverpool and both the subjects of songs by Lennon and McCartney. You will see what the Beatle’s saw in the city of their birth, including their old schools and hangouts and then on to the famous Cavern Club where the group was discovered.

The Beatles Story Experience takes place at the Albert Dock, in the vaults of the Britannia Pavilion. Film, sound and special effects are designed to bring visitors some feeling for what the Beatle’s story and their rise to fame was like. From the Cavern Club to Hamburg and later on to world fame you’ll be able to feel a part of the era and a part of the legendary Cavern Club. The Beatle’s experience is a great afternoon out for all the family.

Visit Liverpool’s famous Albert Dock, which was built in the middle of the nineteenth century and was a prosperous working dock. The Albert Dock has been restored and now draws five million visitors every year, as well as the Beatles Story Experience, there is the Liverpool Tate, the Maritime Museum and the International Slavery Museum. There are craft stalls, souvenir shops and cafes and bars on the dock, more than enough to keep the family entranced for a full day.

If you fancy something a bit more adventurous than sight seeing then why not have a go at climbing at the Awesome Walls Climbing Centre. Awesome Walls is an indoor rock climbing centre just half a mile from the city centre. The centre has a number of brightly coloured walls and the centre is staffed by climbing instructors and experienced climbers. You can visit as an individual and the entrance price includes equipment and instruction, if you want to visit as group then you need to book ahead of time.

The eighteenth century Bluecoat Centre was originally built as a charity school that is now an art centre with a range of facilities. The gallery houses exhibitions and events as well as a children’s art club and adult art classes. On the first floor of the building there is a concert hall, which still puts on a range of performances. There is a great book shop and the occasional second hand book fair. The centre has a really good café/bar where you can get light meals, wine, beers, soft drinks and hot beverages.
