Check out our Liverpool Sightseeing Photography Tours to find out more, and in the meantime, here are our top 10 attractions to visit in Liverpool…
1. Albert Dock
Albert Dock is a show stopper – a UNESCO World Heritage site waterfront, it’s here that you will find the largest collection of Grade I listed buildings in the country. And it’s both aesthetic and entertaining as there are a number of Liverpool’s most popular attractions here. Art lovers won’t want to miss out on Tate Liverpool, and those interested in the history of the city should check out the Merseyside Maritime Museum.
2. Liverpool Cathedral
Cathedrals in the UK are pretty special in general, but Liverpool Cathedral has something extra.
A monumental edifice, the cathedral is the largest in the country and the 8th largest cathedral in the world. Its organ is more than up to the challenge of filling the enormous space with music as it is the largest organ in the country, and the cathedral also boasts having the widest and tallest Gothic arch in the entire world.
This record-breaking house of worship is a sight to behold – and snap pictures of! And better yet, you can get great views of the city from its tower and more than a few awesome Instagrammable moments!
3. Mersey Ferries
You can catch the city from a different angle when you hop on one of Mersey Ferries sightseeing trips. You can simply drift down the River Mersey or explore one of their canal trips, and photos always look great on a boat!
4. Radio City Tower
Not only is the Radio City Tower a striking building to look at, but it’s also the best place to go for a truly unobstructed view of the glory of Liverpool. Its 122m metre viewing platform allows you a 360-degree look at the city and, on a bright day, you can see beyond – sometimes to Wales!
5. Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral
We already put one cathedral on the list, but we promise you that Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral is also unmissable.
Unlike the more traditional Liverpool Cathedral, the Metropolitan building is in a more contemporary gothic revival style and it is totally unique and totally gorgeous on camera.
6. Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road (Lennon and McCartney’s Childhood Homes)
You can’t come to Liverpool without spending some time with the Beatles. Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road are the childhood homes of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. As National Trust Attractions, they’ve been preserved as they were when the famous pair were just kids with big dreams, and these are the sites where they wrote some of their early hits.
The atmosphere, the style and the authenticity of these houses make for a unique experience and one that you’ll want to catch on camera.
7. The Beatles Story
Sticking with the city’s most famous sons, it’s well worth checking out The Beatles Story. This award-winning exhibition will give you a comprehensive guide through all things Beatles.
Love ‘em or hate ‘em (but, really, who hates them?!), The Beatles are synonymous with Liverpool.
8. The Cavern Club
And if that wasn’t enough Beatles mania for you, then you need to check out the Cavern Club. Here, you can rest, have a drink, and enjoy the Beatles-infused air of this memorabilia-laden bar. Perhaps you can check out some live bands while you’re at it!
9. Sefton Park
If you want to include a little bit of nature and old-world grandeur in your trip to Liverpool then it is worth going to Sefton Park.
A 200-acre expanse of flowers and woodland, Sefton is especially enchanting in the springtime. The park is also home to the magnificent Palm House – a Victorian glasshouse that has been fully restored after falling into disrepair.
This natural beauty offers the perfect backdrop for your IGs!
10. The World Museum
Museums are always great attractions, but Liverpool’s World Museum is one of the country’s best. Delving into the sciences and human cultures, the museum boasts a planetarium, an aquarium, and several space exhibitions.
So there you have it! The 10 must-visit attractions in Liverpool. You have no excuses now, your Liverpool Sightseeing Photography Tour awaits. And make sure to follow us on Instagram to see what else we’re up to!
