It’s that late September lull. Work is back in full swing, university is due to start in a week or two and the heating has been switched back on. The nights are drawing in and the weekends seem shorter, and as much as I love winter, I can help but want to drag out that exciting, adventurous part of me that summer brings. So, I’ve been planning and I’ve decided that I need to visit Liverpool in the very near future. There are so many things to do and I’ve narrowed them down to my top five reasons to visit this glorious city.
- TukTuk Tour
What better way to see the city then in a tuktuk?! And bonus, they’ll show you the sights and tell you all the important facts about the place. City TukTuks Tours have a whole bunch of tours and you can even choose a Selfie Tour or add a glass of bubbly on.
- The Cavern
As an iconic part of music history, The Cavern is a must-see for any visitor to Liverpool. Having had famous musicians like Gerry & The Pacemakers, Cilla Black and, of course, The Beatles making their début there, need I say more?
- The Beatles Story
You can not visit Liverpool without learning about The Beatles. It’s just not allowed. As one of the most famous bands in the world, it’s only right that we visit the sights and learn about their history.
- Central Perk
You may think I’ve mistyped or mixed Liverpool up with New York but I have not. A wonderful person has created a replica of the famous Friends’ coffee shop and opened it up in Liverpool. With everything from open mic nights to Gunther’s birthday coffees to the notorious orange sofa, this is heaven for any Friends’ fan.
- Mersey Ferry
I’m a sucker for a river cruise and sailing down the Mersey would be a great way to end a fun-filled weekend in Liverpool.
There you have it! My five reasons to visit Liverpool. It’s a wonderful city and I really hope that (ok, I know it won’t be this weekend but…) someday soon I’ll be visiting and ticking these top five off my itinerary.
