Best spots to explore in Liverpool this summer

With its thriving music scene, vast array of cultural sites and iconic landmarks, Liverpool is a top city to explore in the North West. Liverpool has an interesting maritime history with its docks and is best known for being the birthplace of legendary band The Beatles.


The Liverpool City Region has a tourism industry worth more than £5 billion and is the fourth most visited city destination by residents of Great Britain. Whether you are a music fan wanting to learn more about The Beatles origin story or an architectural enthusiast looking to marvel at wonders such as the neoclassical St George’s Hall and the Liverpool Cathedral, there is something for everyone in this grand city.


Here are just a few of the top attractions to enjoy during your summer trip to Liverpool:


Take a tour of Anfield stadium


Something that you will learn on your trip to Liverpool is that Liverpudlians are very passionate about their football. After all, it is home to two of the greatest football teams there is, Liverpool FC and Everton FC.


Anfield is the fifth largest stadium in the United Kingdom and recent extensions have now resulted in capacity in the stands reaching 60,000. With manager Jurgen Klopp set to leave the club very soon, now is a very emotional time for Liverpool FC and a poignant time to visit their stadium.


Tours allow fans to go behind the scenes and enjoy an immersive and interactive experience. Visitors can take a peek at the press room, walk the iconic tunnel, check out the team’s dressing room and the managerial dugout.


Tours can be booked online and audio guides are available in 11 different languages.


Enjoy an evening out


Liverpool has a thriving night time economy and is a popular destination for a night out, it's particularly popular with stag and hen parties.


If you are celebrating something special, why not experience one of the city’s casinos? There are lots to choose from, including Leo Casino on Chaloner St Queen's Dock or the Genting Casino at Queen Square. Get to grips with casino gaming by playing online game like Secrets of the Phoenix before you go.


When visiting in the Summer months you’ll want to make the most of the nicer weather. Outdoor bars are a great way to relax after a busy day exploring the city. There is Subrosa in the Baltic Triangle or Pins Bar on Duke Street with regular live music sessions.


For a truly unique experience, there is Point Blank Shooting on Castle Street. This fun simulation shooting range also serves cocktails and American inspired dishes.


Cruise along the river Mersey


One of the best ways to see all the sights Liverpool has to offer is from the water. There are a great selection of sightseeing tours along the river available, especially during the summer season.


On the river tour, you will pass historic sights including the city’s grandest cathedrals, the Albert Dock and 3 Graces skyscraper. These tours often have fascinating commentary that includes in-depth descriptions of Liverpool’s history and culture.


Beatles walking tour


No trip to Liverpool would be complete without honouring the legendary Liverpudlian band The Beatles. A walking tour is probably one of the best ways to learn more about the Beatles and how the city shaped them.


These tours pass significant landmarks where the band played, relaxed and wrote their iconic tracks. You should also make time to have a look about the Liverpool Beatles Museum that is situated on Matthew Street in the Cavern Quarter.


If walking isn’t for you then Beatles themed bus tours are also available and can be prebooked online.


Visit the Royal Albert Dock


One of the most historically significant parts of the city, the Royal Albert Dock has a wonderful mixture of sights and retail outlets. There is the Tate Liverpool art museum, the Maritime Museum, as well as a selection of bars and eateries.


You can easily spend an entire day exploring the area and learning more about its past. It's also probably one of the best places to pick up any souvenirs  you wish to take home to remember your trip.


Listen to music at The Cavern Club


Lastly, also worth visiting is the iconic Cavern Club. This venue has a live lounge, pub and club and claims to be the birthplace of the Beatles’ music. You will find live music from tribute bands, popular musicians and up and coming articles playing here on most days throughout the summer.


Liverpool is a vibrant and fast paced city with lots to see and do, try to plan some activities in advance to help make the most of your trip.
