Places to stay in Liverpool

Liverpool grew up around its dockyard, on which work first began in 1715. Little more than 100 years later, 40 per cent of the world's trade was moving through Liverpool and its importance to UK industry was undeniable. The dockyard fell into decline but has now been revitalised and again is a symbol of Liverpool's strength.

High-quality shopping districts have been built up around the water, yet the essence of the docks has been preserved with UNESCO World Heritage status. Liverpool's great shopping and thriving music scene continues to attract visitors all year round.

Five Free Things To Do In Liverpool

Albert Dock
This is the key part of the docks' UNESCO World Heritage status, as Albert Dock was the first building to be made without wood - it's all brick, cast-iron and stone. At the heart of Liverpool's maritime history, it's now the most-visited multi-use attraction outside of London.

Maritime and Slavery Museum
The Maritime Museum explores how Liverpool grew into the city it is today around the docks. Unfortunately, Liverpool therefore played its role in the slave trade, and this shameful chapter of British history is reviewed in the excellent Slavery Museum.

Walking Tours
There are many guided tours you can take around Liverpool, but the Heritage Tour allows you to discover the beautiful old buildings of the city at your own pace, with a downloadable MP3 audio guide.

Just outside of Liverpool is the small town of Formby, which is very popular for those looking for a short break from the hustle and bustle of the city. It has great beaches and beautiful parks and woodlands - including a pine wood which is a National Trust reserve for red squirrels.

Spend any time in Liverpool and you'll see plenty of references to the Beatles, Liverpool's most famous sons. Some of the attractions charge a fee, but you can go off on your own to see the Beatles landmarks of the city, such as the Cavern Club, the childhood homes of Lennon and McCartney, Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane.
