7 Places not to miss when visiting Liverpool

Isn’t this view just gorgeous? I know Liverpool is not a typical tourist destination (well, I guess for fans of the Beatles it is), but it is so worth a visit. If you ever get the chance, go! I actually spent my semester abroad two years ago in a small town called Ormskirk, about 30 miles north from Liverpool. I went to Liverpool pretty much every week and it has really become a second home to me. It is such a beautiful city, and I’ve already been back twice since my semester abroad. By the way, if you’d be interested in reading more about studying abroad or specifically studying in England, tell me in the comments and I’ll write a post about it.

So, without further ado, here are my 7 favourite places you cannot miss when visiting Liverpool.

Liverpool Cathedral

The photo speaks for itself, doesn’t it? It’s such a beautiful cathedral overlooking the city.

Inside the cathedral quite a lot of modern artwork is displayed. I especially love this piece by Tracey Emin.

You can also climb to the very top of the cathedral. After quite a few flights of stairs, you are rewarded with what is probably the most spectacular view of the city. On one side, you can see the sea and on the other side you can see the welsh mountains in the far distance.

Hope Street and Paddy’s Wigwam (Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral)

The Anglican and the metropolitan cathedral are connected by a really beautiful street, fittingly named Hope Street.

St George’s Hall and Walker Art Gallery

St. George’s Hall is always worth a visit, as it is, even from the outside just stunning

The Walker Art Gallery displays some quite famous painting and is a fun destination when it’s rainy out.

Radio City Tower

Another landmark in Liverpool. What many people don’t know is, that you can actually go to the very top, as there

The Royal Albert Dock

This dock was completely restored a couple of years ago and is absolutely lovely now. It houses dozens of small independent shops as well as the Tate Liverpool, a modern art gallery. (Also, can you spot the cathedral?)

The Three Graces and the waterfront

If you ask me, these are some of the most beautiful buildings ever built. It’s always worth a visit, as the famous “ferry ‘cross the mersey” also takes off from here. You can also visit these guys.

The “Ferry ‘cross the Mersey”

I can only recommend taking the ferry to the other side of the Mersey. It even plays the old song everytime people get on.

New Brighton

While on the other side of the Mersey, why not take a walk to New Brighton Beach? With about 3km it is a bit of a longer walk though, which makes the view and the sunset even more rewarding.

Convinced to go yet? Tell me in the comments if you’ve ever been to Liverpool before or if you’re planning to!
