Where do I begin? There is so much to see and do in Liverpool.
Have a look at our page and also the following link:
Not large enough even to warrant a mention in the Domesday book of 1086, Liverpool appears to have sprung to life when King John granted it a Royal Charter in 1207. John needed to establish a port in northwest England from which he could quickly dispatch men and supplies across the sea to reinforce his interests in Ireland. As well as port, a weekly market was also started which of course attracted folk from all over the area to Liverpool.
Here is a drone flight over the city and Georgian quarter.
One of the Waterfront
Liverpool is a shipping post but in the past was a much bigger port.
Many of the old buildings are now apartments and shopping areas. The former derelict Albert Dock was one of the first buildings to be refurbished and has shops and restaurants on the ground floor, offices and apartments above.
Liverpool has many and some are free!
The Maritime is located at the Albert Dock. It is not all about shipping, for example it has sections on the emigration as thousands of people sailed to America via Liverpool. The slavery section is also excellent. It has sections about ship building, art, the Titanic and customs.
Liverpool Museum is also on the waterfront and is about life in and around Liverpool.
Parks Sefton Park in Liverpool is arguably the best known and most loved by locals. Classified as a Grade One listed park by English Heritage, the magnificent 235 acre Park looks like a natural landscape rather than a man-made park. https://liverpool.gov.uk/leisure-parks-and-events/parks-and-greenspaces/sefton-park/
The Palm House at Sefton Park
You all know the song and it’s a great way to see the city from the river. There are usually lots of deals and special events.

Places to eat in the city
In the city centre, Bold Street is the place to eat, loads of unique restaurants and cafes.
Well where do I begin? There is so much to choose from, start at the bottom of Bold Street and walk up to the Bombed Out Church, have a good look as you will be spoilt for choice.
Our favourite is the Mexican La Parrilla. It’s usually in the top 5 on Trip Advisor, excellent food and friendly staff. Check out the deals for early evening as they are very good value.
Its easy to find half way up on the left, it usually has a nice chap busking outside dressed as a Mexican a great photo opportunity
Places to eat outside of the city
If you are outside of the city or willing to take a short taxi ride ,Lark Lane is the place to go you will be spoilt for choice.
Many but not all are dog friendly too and its very near Sefton park, another place well worth seeing.
Our favourite for breakfast is Pippins corner (unfortunately they won’t let the dog in). They do good vegan and veggie options too
The Hidden gem in Liverpool is the Watersport’s place does a Speed Boat ride through the docks as some docks have no speed limit its cold so wrap up, but fantastic, £50 for a family of 4.
They also do lots of other activities so well worth a look.
More coming soon
