Best Things To Do & Days Out In Liverpool

From football to The Beatles, the list of cool and unique things to do in Liverpool will make any family day out special! 

Introduce your little ones to classic British music and experience the excitement of the famous Cavern Club, or take tour of The Beatles Story and walk in the footsteps of the Iconic Four. 

Keep the music going and head to the Liverpool Football Club Museum and Tour to learn about the history of your favorite football club. Walk out through the tunnel into the ground and hear the anthem playing in your ear as you imagine yourself getting ready for the game of your life. Your little Reds fans will remember this moment forever. 

One of the top family attractions in Liverpool is Mattel Play! - featuring over 13,000 sq. ft of themed play areas, it’s home to Bob the Builder, Fireman Sam and Thomas The Tank Engine. Sounds epic, doesn’t it?

The best view of a city is often from the water, so save time to board the iconic Mersey Ferry River Explorer Cruise and enjoy a 50-minute ride through the Mersey’s history, allowing the history, views and bracing sea air to wash over you.

If you feel like reconnecting with nature, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, spend a day amongst adorable farm animals at Acorn Farm or Croxteth Hall and County Park.
