Our Top 5 Best Things to Do in Liverpool

Monday 10th June 2019

Any trip to Liverpool, whether that be for the day or for the duration of your university study, can be filled with excitement. There is so much to do in Liverpool that you’ll have trouble deciding what to do first. To help you have a fun-filled visit, here are our 5 favourite things to do in Liverpool:

  • Beatles Magical Mystery Tour

What is Liverpool best known for worldwide? The Beatles. The Magical Mystery Tour is a two-hour bus tour that takes you by all the locations associated with the Beatles’ history, from where they grew up, met, formed the band, and the places that inspired some of their most famous songs, Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane. The tour is available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese (though they aren’t specific about which form), and Japanese, and includes a free exclusive souvenir.

  • Tate Liverpool

Liverpool is brimming with art, as well as music. The Tate Liverpool is a fantastic place to spend a rainy day (or any day!) and is completely free to enter, though major exhibitions may have a fee to enter. The art displayed inside is constantly changing, so those staying in Liverpool for a longer period of time can make the Tate a staple weekend activity.

  • Knowsley Safari 

So Knowsley Safari obviously isn’t in Liverpool’s centre, but it is well worth a mention as one of Liverpool’s best family-friendly attractions. Knowsley Safari is a 550 acre, 5-mile long safari drive with over 700 semi-wild animals, from camels and antelopes to rhinos and lions. The baboons are what Knowsley is famous for, but the lion enclosure always wows visitors. After the drive-through safari, take a walk on the wild side through the on-foot Amur Tiger Trail. There is plenty more to do at Knowsley, and you don’t have to own your own vehicle to enjoy the park.

  • Liverpool Cathedral 

The stunning Liverpool Cathedral is open every single day from 8 am to 6 pm, so it’s an ideal site for holidays when everything else is closed. Liverpool Cathedral is Britain’s largest cathedral and the fifth largest in Europe. The cathedral is free to enter, but you can pay for the audio tour for the best experience. Climb the cathedral’s tower to get a 500-foot high view of the city, and the tower is a romantic place to catch the sunset in the colder months.

  • British Music Experience

Finally, let’s return to the world of music. Liverpool is the official world capital of pop, with more number ones in its history than any other city in the world. The British Music Experience is a tour through the best of British music via its costumes, instruments, and memorabilia. The exhibit includes artists such as Freddie Mercury, Dusty Springfield, the Spice Girls, Adam Ant, and plenty of other world-famous performers. There are plenty of activities for everyone in the family to enjoy, and kids under three go free.

If you are visiting Liverpool for more than just the weekend, you may need short or long-term storage for your valuables. Big Padlock Liverpool has plenty of storage solutions to fit your needs and keep your possessions secure for the duration of your stay in Liverpool, so you can enjoy all the activities you have planned with peace of mind and access whenever you need it.
