Visit Liverpool recently launched their Love Your Liverpool campaign, aimed at getting us locals to experience the city we know and love safely as we ease out of lockdown. It’s time to look at Liverpool like a tourist and really get to know the culture and history of the city.
As many of us will have had our summer holidays cancelled, or maybe we just don’t feel like travelling abroad this year, it gives us a great chance to explore locations nearer to home. Plus, there’s plenty of businesses that need our support during these difficult times so planning a trip locally could have a huge impact on our local economy.
Here’s 10 ways you can be a tourist in your own city:
Visit A Museum or Art Gallery
Museums and art galleries are reopening across the city, check here for reopening dates. There’s such a great range to choose from; the Tate Liverpool for modern art, the British Music Experience for some amazing British music memorabilia and exhibitions and the World Museum for everything from dinosaurs to the solar system, plus many more.
Try A Restaurant You’ve Not Been To Before
Come on, admit it, we’re all guilty of going back to our favourite restaurants over and over again and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, but there’s so much choice out there that we’re dareing you to try somewhere different next time. You never know it might end up becoming one of your new favourites!
Do The Goodison or Anfield Stadium Tour
Football fans will love touring the stadium of their beloved team, with exclusive behind the scenes access to areas like the first team dressing room, players tunnel and more. As if any LFC fans needed more reasons to Love Your Liverpool! Find out more information about the Everton Stadium Tour and Liverpool Stadium Tour.
Visit the Royal Liver Building 360 Attraction
Thanks to the RLB360 attraction you can now experience a guided tour of the Royal Liver Building and learn about the history of the city’s most famous building. The views from the top are worth the admission prices alone.
Go on a Shiverpool Ghost Tour
Shiverpool Ghost Tours are a great way to learn the history of parts of the city as well as having a screamingly good time in the process. With lively, hilarious ‘ghosts’ as guides you’ll be led around the city to some famous spooky sites and there’s plenty of jumps along the way.
Get Out Into the Great Outdoors
Speke Hall Gardens and Estate, Croxteth Hall Park, Formby Beach and Nature Reserve and Farmer Teds are all open for visitors looking to explore outdoors. The British summer weather has to pick up soon, right?
Explore The City’s Street Art
There’s some great street art pieces dotted around the city which is perfect for those Instagram shots. Check out Liverpool’s Most Instagrammed Street Art as a good starting point.
Discover Liverpool’s Best Beer Gardens and Roof Top Spaces
When the sun decides it wants to come out to play we recommend you check out these beer gardens and roof tops for soaking up the sun and enjoying some al fresco dining and drinking! With views like the one from the Oh Me Oh My rooftop (pictured above) it’s not hard to Love Your Liverpool!
