Visit Liverpool - A Guide to Liverpool’s Attractions

About Liverpool

Liverpool has had a waterfront makeover with a thriving scene on Albert Dock, a lasting artistic explosion (as a former City of Culture), and an ability to laugh along with you. Liverpool is here to be loved - live, loud, funny and in your face.

Attractions in Liverpool

What’s not to like about Liverpool? It’s a city with two of pretty much everything – two fabulous cathedrals. Two legendary Premiership teams. And four fab Beatles. Spend the day on a Beatles pilgrimage down Penny Lane and beyond. Get down to the restored waterfront for a dose of maritime heritage. Or get out of town for the races at Aintree and Chester. Being here on Grand National day just has to be experienced...
