Why go to Liverpool

The historic port city of Liverpool has turned its fortunes around in the last two decades. Long plagued by economic hardship, a new focus on regeneration at the turn of the millennium has made it North England’s most exciting and dynamic city.

Today, Liverpool is a thriving city break destination with excellent museums, top-class restaurants, and a live music scene famous around the world. It was, after all, the birthplace of The Beatles. Their legacy is evident throughout the city, from old venues like the Cavern Club, where the Fab Four cut their teeth, to their childhood homes out in the suburbs. With two museums dedicated entirely to John, Paul, Ringo, and George, it’s almost impossible to avoid them.

Of course, the city is also famous for another group of lads: Liverpool FC. Fans from around the world come to this city to see their favourite stars play at Anfield, and Liverpool’s bars and pubs throng with revellers when the big games are on.

Tips and advice

Is it safe to go to Liverpool?

Liverpool is as safe as any big city in the UK. Pickpockets and petty thieves exist but remain vigilant and ensure your valuables are in a safe place and you’ll be able to enjoy your Liverpool holiday without worry.

How many days do I need in Liverpool?

To really get to know this northern powerhouse city, it’s best to spend at least three nights in Liverpool. Take a long weekend, and you’ll be able to see the main sights and enjoy plenty of nightlife.

Are there any local customs I need to be aware of?

There aren’t exactly local customs exclusive to Liverpool, but there’s certainly a local dialect that’s worth researching a little before you go. People from Liverpool are called Liverpudlians or Scousers, and ‘Scouse’ is the dialect you’ll hear.

Getting around Liverpool

Liverpool’s bus network is extensive and is useful for travelling between the city’s neighbourhoods. Taxis are inexpensive and can be booked using ride-hailing apps, and driving around the city is relatively simple with ample parking throughout.
