Royal Liver building on the pierhead, Merseyside

From the magnificent waterfront to world-class museums and legendary nightlife, experience the buzz of a revitalised city on weekend breaks to Liverpool. 

The monumental Royal Liver Building and strikingly modern Museum of Liverpool dominate the city's dramatic waterfront. Nearby, the redeveloped, red-brick Albert Dock houses bars, restaurants and attractions like the Tate Liverpool, for cutting-edge art shows. From Hope Street, just behind Chinatown, the towering Anglican Cathedral presides majestically over the city.
