Liverpool City Breaks

Liverpool is quickly becoming one of Europe’s most popular city break destinations. The city was awarded European Capital of Culture 2008, and has since become a more popular tourist destination. Already famous as the birthplace of The Beatles, the city’s other cultural assets have been described as some of the finest in Europe.

Liverpool has more theatres, museums and galleries than any other UK city outside London, and Liverpool’s history as one of the world’s great ports has left an amazing legacy of art and architecture that gives it a distinctive look and unique atmosphere.

Liverpool is also one of the world’s great sporting cities with horse racing at Aintree and Haydock, 40 golf courses – seven of which are Championship standard, including the Royals Birkdale and Lytham – and Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs. Regardless of if it’s Penny Lane, Premiership football or Europe’s finest culture you’re looking for, Liverpool is the city break for you!


Looking for somewhere to dine in Liverpool? We recommend Modo and The Living Room as must visits. There are many other options around too, just in case these two don’t suit your taste buds.


 Camel Club isn’t an easy bar to find, but it’s well worth a visit if you do. Liverpool has a large selection of bars to choose from, but if we had to recommend one then it would definitely be the Camel Club.


Liverpool is a city that is known for being very in tune with fashion, and the number of boutiques that it home to simply speak for themselves.Vivienne Westwood is among the ranks of boutiques that have set up shop in the trendy Cavern Walks. A favourite with Sophie Dahl, the trendy precinct has shops galore selling the latest couture from Milan, Paris and New York. Whatever your fashion sense, Liverpool has a boutique to suit everyone.

At Wade Smith, one of the most successful of all Liverpool’s designer stores, you’ll find footballers, pop idols and soap stars all looking for the latest Gucci and Prada. Selling its own products, the Reiss clothing range is so cool you may even need to buy a jumper in summer simply because you’ve fallen in love with it at first sight.

If you pay a visit to Bold Street you’ll sure to spend your money in Karen Millen, Monsoon and Kookai,as well as Harrods of Liverpool. Jeff’s of Bold Street stocks clothes from top designers including Medici and Joseph Ribkoff, so it’s a shop that you must pay a visit to.
