Explore Liverpool’s buzzing waterfront

Liverpool, Merseyside

Be entertained, amused, informed, inspired – and well fed – in one of the city’s most lively and interesting quarters.

Liverpool’s river and docks attract locals and visitors alike, offering world-class culture, top heritage sites and vibrant restaurants and bars; the waterfront even has UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

The Albert Dock is one of the country’s top heritage attractions, home to award-winning visitor attractions The Beatles Story, International Slavery Museum, Merseyside Maritime Museum, the art gallery Tate Liverpool and recently opened Museum of Liverpool.

When hunger and thirst strike, choose between stylish family-friendly cafés, bars and restaurants, then have a ride on the giant Wheel of Liverpool for panoramic views. You can also get a different perspective on the waterfront on board one of the iconic ferries, immortalised in the hit 1960s song Ferry ‘Cross the Mersey.

Liverpool is in northwest England, just over 2 hours from London by train.
