Third largest of England’s cities, Liverpool grew in wealth and influence over the 18th and 19th centuries to become a powerhouse of trade and industry. Such is its significance in national history that the city was the first outside London to be awarded blue plaques by English Heritage, which recognised the “significant contribution made by its sons and daughters in all walks of life.”

Among these famous Liverpudlians (or “Scousers”) are Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Beatles tourism has blossomed in the proud city, where tours of significant sites such as former residences are available in abundance. Modern Liverpool is not content to rest on its laurels, however, and its buzzing music scene draws acclaimed groups and artists from throughout the globe to perform at its many excellent music venues. The Echo Arena, for instance, seats up to 10,600 attendees of concerts by internationally-renowned musicians or events such as the MTV Europe Music Awards or the Davis Cup tennis competition.

The arena opened in 2008, which was the year that Liverpool was granted the title European Capital of Culture, an accolade which raised the city’s profile within England and internationally. With a buzz surrounding its nightlife and restaurant scene as well as a greater selection of listed buildings, museums, theatres, and galleries than any city other than the capital, there has never been a better time to book Liverpool flights and see the city for yourself.

Liverpool climate

Typical of England’s temperate climate, July and August are usually the warmest months and January and February the coolest. Rainfall occurs throughout the year, but the winter months are likely to be the wettest.

Getting around Liverpool

Central Liverpool is small enough for most major sites to be reachable easily on foot. There are also a multitude of picturesque and easy cycle routes through the city.

Buses, managed by Merseytravel and running from the city centre outward, are also available, with two main bus terminals: Queen Square, serving mainly southbound routes, and Liverpool One in Canning Street, which serves mainly north or eastbound routes.

There is also a train service operated by Merseyrail, with the three main central stations being Moorfields, Lime Street, and Central Station. Moorfields and Central offer Wirral Line and Northern Line services, and Lime Street offers City Line services, while other lines are available offering routes to Wigan, Warrington, Crewe, Preston and other locations outside the city.

What is good to know if travelling to Liverpool?

  • Albert Dock, a UNESCO World Heritage site containing the largest single collection of Grade I listed buildings in the UK, is Liverpool’s most popular tourist attraction. The dock is of paramount importance to the city’s maritime history and appropriately now houses the Merseyside Maritime Museum, as well as other institutions such as the Tate Liverpool and the Beatles Story exhibition and a range of bars, cafes and restaurants. 
  • The Beatles Story exhibition is dedicated to perhaps Liverpool’s most famous sons. Beatles fans flock to the site to learn about the history of the Fab Four from attractions including the Fab4D 3D cinema and replicas of the Cavern Club and their Abbey Road recording studio. 
  • Liverpool Cathedral was founded in 1904 but building was finally completed in 1978, with the delay due to wartime difficulties and cost issues. The cathedral contains the UK’s largest pipe organ, composed of more than 10,200 pipes, and one of the world’s largest bells, Great George. 
  • World Museum offers free entry and contains collections focussing upon natural and physical sciences as well as archaeology and ethnology as well as featuring a planetarium. The grand building originally opened in 1851 is Derby Museum, showcasing the Duke of Derby’s personal natural history collection and has grown over the years to become one of Liverpool’s finest museums. 
  • The Williamson Tunnels of the Edge Hill area are an intriguing piece of Liverpool’s heritage. They were built under the direction of Joseph Williamson, an eccentric local businessman, in the 19th century and, their purpose is largely unknown. One theory is that he commissioned the labyrinthine complex simply to provide employment for local labourers, an act of charity that still allowed the beneficiaries save face. In recent years, the Joseph Williamson Society established the Joseph Williamson Heritage Centre on part of the site, opening some of the tunnels to visitors.

Peak Season:  The summer months between June and September constitute Liverpool’s peak season, as during this period the weather is warmer and drier.  Off Season:  The city sees the fewest visitors during the winter months when weather is colder and there is more chance of rain. Spring months of May and June, however, or autumn months of October and November, are good off-peak times to visit, as they come before peak season crowding and weather is generally relatively favourable.
