Best Things To Do & Days Out In Liverpool, Merseyside

Football, music and museums are just some of the cool things to do in Liverpool on a family day out.

Experience the excitement of the famous Cavern Club, where you’ll walk in the footsteps of a certain four talented young lads called The Beatles as you follow their journey from Penny Lane to world stardom.

Keep the music going and head to the Liverpool Football Club Museum and Tour to learn about the history of this great sporting club on your Liverpool family day out. 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.

Visit Britain’s only free Planetarium at the World Museum Liverpool where you can try out interactive technologies from across the globe, before transporting yourself to the secret nerve centre of the battle of the Atlantic during World War II at the War Museum.

The Tate Liverpool is home to impressive pieces of art with a contemporary, family feel. Little artists can go on to the Walker Art Gallery where they can create a masterpiece of their very own.

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.
