Must See Spots in Liverpool

And the most instagram-worthy spots too!
I took the train from Manchester to Liverpool with Visit Britain India on what will probably be the sunniest of days Liverpool experiences for the entire year (yep! I was THAT lucky!). The train ride was just about an hour and I was too lazy to take out my sunglasses because I honestly thought the sun would disappear soon enough. I had carried 2 pairs of sunglasses and I didn’t wear them once. Oh well! That’s the UK for you!

I was in Liverpool for only a night and I spent pretty much all of the day walking around the city centre being guided by the lovely Paul who is a professional tour guide in Liverpool. We walked A LOT! And I was surprised by the amount we covered. Although, to really see Liverpool as a tourist, I reckon 3-4 nights to be able to do it at a leisurely pace. I’m one of those people who actually like spending bout 2 weeks in a place but somehow I can’t seem to find anybody willing to do that with me. And to do 2 weeks by yourself solo is just not my cup of tea :/

Enough about that. Let me get started with the must-see spots that you cannot miss while in Liverpool. These are all walkable so you won’t need any public transportation or cabs – Liverpool has both incase you do. And for all you insta-freaks out there (which I know today includes pretty much everybody), these are also highly instagrammable spots and will make for really nice photos. Hope you guys have fun going through the list. And if you feel that I have missed out any spots that really must be included – hit me up with a comment below!

Hard Days Night Hotel
This is also where I stayed for my Liverpool leg. If you haven’t been able to tell by the name – this is a Beatles inspired hotel and has EVERYTHING Beatles related right from their restaurant to interiors to the rooms and even the welcome music playing in your room after check-in. If you’re not a Beatles fan you may want to give this place a skip but if you are, or are even neutral to it, it’s quite lovely. That’s my room.

Cavern Club
This club is a bit of a tourist trap because they even have tours and I think an entry for tourists who just want to check out the place and click pics but it still has a lot of history attached to it so it’s worth a visit. Started in the 1950s. The Beatles have performed live here multiple times I hear, along with a lot of other famous artists. With several underground levels it’s a bit dark inside but if you look closely there is a LOT of memorabilia to be found inside.

Walker Art Gallery
For all you museum/art lovers. Plus the walk around this whole area is an instagram love-child waiting to happen. Super picturesque. When I visited the Art Gallery, I checked out the ‘Slaves of Fashion’ exhibit by The Singh Twins that’s on Until May 2018.
This is right outside the Walker Art Gallery, it’s the building on the left.

St. George’s Hall
This is mainly a conference and events venue (they had a beer and cider festival going on inside when I visited but sadly we didn’t have time to stop and taste – blasphemy!) but it’s a beautiful structure both inside and outside – perfect for photo ops. The hall was conceptualized in the early 1800s.

Small Concert Room inside St. George’s Hall
I mean would you look at it! I could do a hundred shoots here. I wish I had the chance to see an actual concert live here! This room can hold about 1200 people.

Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral
The cathedral opened its doors in 1967 and looks quite modern both inside and outside. It also has the famous Lutyens Crypts inside. Unfortunately we couldn’t enter the building because a university’s graduation ceremony was in procession. Boo!

The Philharmonic Dining Rooms
This famous pub, built across the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall is well-known for its ornate interiors that are inspired from the hall itself. Originally built without a toilet for women (but ofcourse!), you can tell a stark difference in the modern ladies room from the rest of the interiors. And the men’s toilets are definitely a must-see. Apparently a lot of ladies are known to go and check them out because they are so lavish and ornate!

The Liverpool Cathedral
This is a larger-than-life building and you must definitely visit (doesn’t matter what religion you are or even if you don’t believe in God like me). This is the longest cathedral in the world, with the largest hanging bell and probably the youngest architect – the guy was just 22 years old when he won the competition for it (remember when life was simple and you could go down in history as the architect of one of the longest cathedrals in the world by simply winning a competition – no contacts or pulls or networking needed.lol)
I also particularly liked this place because it somehow doesn’t seem to force its religion on you. Everybody seems welcome and the building has such a peaceful air about it. And the architecture inside, my my! It’s all quite wonderful and awe-inspiring.
There are also some fun modern touches like a neon sign inside the cathedral by the artist Tracy Emin – ‘I felt you and I knew you loved me’

The Roof of the Liverpool Cathedral
There is an elevator after which there are BUNCH of stairs to be climbed so not the best idea for older people but the views of Liverpool that you get from up there are literally the best in Liverpool. It’s freezing and windy up there so make sure you’re equipped for it.

East Avenue Bakehouse
This cozy and warm restaurant is located on the young and happening vibey Bold Street in Liverpool. Head to Bold Street for shopping, local cinemas, hipster stuff and to just people-watch. For homey, fresh and made-with-love food, sit at East Avenue Bakehouse and do not miss the ‘Bakehouse Hash’ lunch plate. It’s what I had and even though it doesn’t sound very special on the menu, I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed!

Bluecoat Arts Centre
Lots of exhibits happening here along with this gorgeous building for a photo-op. They have a lovely outdoor cafe where you can sit all day long.

Tate Liverpool
If you’re a fan of Tate, you must obviously visit the Tate Liverpool. There was a Roy Lichtenstein exhibit when I visited amongst others.

Albert Dock
This is an absolutely beautiful area to walk around. It’s where the Tate is also located along with many other museums and other buildings of interest. Do visit the Open Eye Gallery and soak in some stunning views of the water and Liverpool alike.

The Beatles Statue
Again at the Albert Dock and strictly for Beatles Fan clearly.

Blakes Restaurant
This restaurant is situated inside the Hard Days Night Hotel so again, it is Beatles inspired. On one of its walls has photos of some 60 odd people who inspired the Beatles through their lives. Story goes that even Hitler used to be on it (as an example of what not to be like) but he was ultimately removed being such a strong topic. Have some braised pork and beer for dinner to refresh your soul. Don’t miss their dessert – it’s magic.

    I am from India and work and live in Liverpool. Walking down the pier head, a ride on the Mersey river, the high street shopping, the city and country life combination (naming just a few!) made me fall in love with this place! And the people are so so friendly.

    Woah! I’m enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “ perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a very good job with this.
