Whether you are jetting in or arriving by road or rail, we've got everything you need for fantastic Liverpool weekend breaks...
The popularity of Liverpool as a short-break destination lies in its wealth of diverse and exciting attractions. Yes, the Beatles hailed from Liverpool and fans of the Fab Four are well catered for, and of course any football followers or filly fanciers will be more than happy at Anfield, Goodison Park or Aintree, but there's also an abundance of art, live music, shopping, museums, historical sites and other crowd-pleasers that draw visitors of all ages.
So once you've arrived, unpacked your bags in one of the excellent Liverpool hotels, and got your bearings on this city of the north west, what next? You could become acquainted with Liverpool and its illustrious waterside history at the Merseyside Maritime Museum or the Liverpool Museum. 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.
The Albert Dock is home to an excellent Beatles museum. Talking of John, Paul, George and Ringo, you are in the birthplace of, arguably, the greatest band the world has ever known, so embrace the beat and join the Magical Mystery Tour (with stops at Penny Lane and Strawberry Field) before catching some live music in the Cavern Club - you can even stay at the Hard Days Night Hotel.
Liverpool city breaks are pleasurable at any time of the year, though short breaks in summer are popular and bookings should be made well in advance to secure low prices on hotels, transport and - if you are travelling from further afield - cheap flights.
