There’s so much to see and do in Liverpool that you’d struggle to it all into one month! Whether you’re from the beautiful city or are planning a visit, you can trust the following 10 attraction tips will help you make the most of your stay!
1. Mersey Ferry
New York is famous for its yellow taxis. Blackpool has its trams. San Francisco has its cable cars. Liverpool has the Mersey ferry – which is why you should place this experience on the top of your to-do list!
Departing hourly at the Pier Head, the ferry will take just 50 minutes to sail to the Wirral Peninsula – the perfect way to experience Liverpool’s iconic waterfront! You even have the option to hop on and off the ferry and do a little exploring of your own.
There is a reason why Liverpool was crowned Capital of Culture 2008 – and that’s because it is a city filled with culture. You should therefore make a point of visiting some of the many museums on offer.
If you want to learn more about the regional history, we recommend you take a trip to the Museum of Liverpool, where you’ll learn more about The Beatles, Liverpool FC and Everton FC.
The Maritime Museum is also a must-see attraction, as you can learn more about Liverpool’s historic seafaring past, and they even offer an interesting RMS Titanic exhibition to learn more about the world famous cruise liner.
3. Aintree Racecourse
Aintree Racecourse is the home of the Grand National – and has been since 1839! It’s definitely worth a visit when the annual event is held, but you can also head to the racecourse throughout the year to watch some of the UK’s biggest horse races!
4. The Magical Mystery Tour
No Liverpool sightseeing experience can be complete without the Magical Mystery Tour – especially if you’re a big fan of The Beatles! The tours run daily from the Albert Dock and you’ll visit a range of locations in the two-hour timeframe, including the members’ childhood homes, and places that inspired songs such as ‘Strawberry Fields’ and ‘Penny Lane’.
5. Liverpool One
If there is one thing us Liverpudlians do well is shopping – as we’re one of the stylish cities in the country, so you can trust you’ll find a plethora of shops to visit when you head into Liverpool One. You’ll also be spoilt for choice by the wide variety of restaurants and cafes situated inside the open air shopping district, and you can even watch a film at the Odeon Cinema!

For a wild day out, visit Knowsley Safari Park. You can start your day by taking a 550 acre Safari Drive to see a selection of 700 animals from inside your own car – so you’ll have the chance to see camels, tigers, baboons and wildebeests at their natural best!
You can then take a trip through the walkaround area, exploring the Bat Forest or visiting the Birds of Prey Experience. A fun day out for every age!
8. Liverpool and Everton Football Club
If you’re a football fan, you must visit Liverpool and Everton’s stadiums! When you visit Anfield, Liverpool’s football ground, you can go on a stadium tour and can even take a look inside the home team’s changing rooms. Once you’re all done with that, you can visit the LFC Museum that’s filled with historical artefacts and facts about the team.
If you’re more a fan of The Toffees, visit Goodison Park to take in a football match or you can even take in a stadium tour to walk down the ground’s tunnel onto the pitch.
9. Crosby Beach
Come rain or shine, Crosby Beach is the perfect place to visit on a trip around the city, as it offers stunning views of the sea, as well as the magnificant sculptures called Another Place by Antony Gornley, which are 100 cast-iron life-sized figures spread out across the shore.
