Liverpool is often referred to as the heart of the North. The community spirit and beautiful views surrounding the city are enough to convince anyone that they should explore and try something new when visiting. If you’re looking for somewhere totally different to visit and someplace you’re definitely going to feel at home in, Liverpool is the perfect city for you. Whether you’re planning on moving to the city or only have 24 hours, we’ve listed some things you need to do while you’re there.
Take a look at this quick 24-hour travel guide, detailing all the fun activities, delicious restaurants and cool bars you need to see when you’re there. It’s no wonder people are moving to Liverpool, the likes of the Baltic Triangle has even been recently named the top coolest place to live in the UK, also being compared to like the likes of Shoreditch in London and Downtown Manhattan in New York.
The Royal Albert Dock
No visit to Liverpool is complete without a stroll along the famous Albert Dock, and the ever-changing skyline of Liverpool means that no matter when you visit, there will be something changing along the front. The regeneration projects planned for the next decade detail how the council and private companies plan on modernising the dock space and changing it forever. This is exciting stuff for Liverpool, but also means that now is the best time to go before anything changes too drastically. The dock offers a range of restaurants, bars and shopping outlets for those wanting to stop off after their walk around the area. Plus, if you’re a Beatles fan, then there is the perfect museum for you to visit while you’re in the area.
One of Liverpool’s most successful regeneration projects has to be the Baltic Triangle area in the city centre. Now a bustling hub for innovative and creative businesses as well as independent stores, restaurants and bars, the Baltic Triangle is definitely somewhere every visitor has to see before they leave Liverpool. The Baltic Market offers drinks, cocktails, meals and coffee of all different varieties that are sure to get your tastebuds tingling! However, if you do plan on staying in the city a little longer or decide you want to move back to the city because of how much you enjoyed your stay, there are countless new build and off-plan developments to look at. RWinvest currently has a skyline-altering development named One Baltic Square, which will offer tenants unique facilities including five rooftop gardens overlooking the cathedral.
Be at one with nature and take a walk (or cycle!) around Liverpool’s well-loved Sefton Park. It’s located just south of the city centre and can be reached by train or bus (or a leisurely walk if you’re feeling fit enough!). If you’re someone who likes to see new places in all their beauty, including the beautiful scenery, then this is the place to be. Sefton Park also features a palm house in the middle of the greenery that is often hired out for special occasions like proms, weddings and birthdays. It’s essentially a free day out, and the park sometimes puts on exhibitions and activities for kids too, so it’s great for somewhere new to try.
