Situated in Merseyside, Liverpool is an iconic city boasting the Beatles, Liverpool and Everton football clubs and, of course, the Three Graces...
Liverpool is a city that's relatively easy to navigate. Pick up your car at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LPL) and you'll find the main attractions well sign-posted and under ten miles away. It's no surprise that the city earned the title of European City of Culture as its home to Tate Liverpool, the Walker Art Gallery, the Liverpool Museum, the Everyman Theatre and the Lady Lever Gallery, to name but a few attractions. At Crosby Beach you can also see Antony Gormley's controversial statues.
Keen shoppers are bound to enjoy the sleek and glossy new mall, Liverpool ONE and the trendy Cavern Walks packed with designer boutiques. Those whose interests lie in sport should pay a visit to Aintree, home of the Grand National or the homes of Liverpool and Everton football clubs. If you enjoy golf you can play a round at Hoylake or Birkdale, former hosts of the British Open Championships.
A short drive takes you to the stunning Sefton Park with its landscaped parklands. Or why not try Croxteth Hall and Country Park for the botanical gardens and historic buildings?
Liverpool car hire can help you to make the most of your visit by putting other attractions within easy reach...
Head to Southport to enjoy the beach, the Roman city of Chester, with its ruins and city walls, or take the journey to bustling Manchester. Manchester is less than an hour down the M62 with rival football clubs and superb shopping, museums and galleries.
When enjoying a longer stay in the city, take some time out to explore further afield and enjoy the beauty of the Lake District. The home of Beatrix Potter and Wordsworth, this stunning area is a National Park and is one the most visited and beautiful parts of the UK.
The North Wales coast has traditional resorts such as Llandudno as well as the highest mountain in Wales, Snowdon, which you can hike up or, if feeling a little lazy, take the train and enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake at the top.
If you want a traditional beach resort, then the bright lights of Blackpool are a short drive away. With the Pleasure Beach theme park, Blackpool Tower, three piers and a huge beach, it's one of the UK's most visited destinations. Ensure you try fish and chips sat on the sea front.
Finally the Peak District National Park is also within reach, home to rolling hills, fantastic for walkers and with a look and feel unique to the area.
