Visiting Liverpool This Autumn
There are always lots of great things to see and do in Liverpool. It’s a really vibrant city with tonnes of nature thrown in too.
Autumn is a wonderful time to visit and take in the sights. If you are into your Instagram, Liverpool One have put together this fantastic infographic to help you take some memorable shots of your time here. But if you need some additional inspiration of what else to see and do, I’ve put together some other hidden gems that Liverpool has to offer.
If you like exploring nature’s finest, I would recommend a trip to the Palm House. Located in Sefton Park, it houses over 20 different types of palm trees. You can cycle there on the eight-mile scenic route from Otterspool Promenade. The route goes through Festival Gardens so is really pretty. There’s often a lot going on at Palm House, including an almost daily pop up café, regular walks and other seasonal events like showings of Halloween films.
The Liverpool Cathedral
The Liverpool Cathedral is absolutely stunning. The stained glass windows are 94-acre and so make this building well worth a visit. The Cathedral is actually Britain’s largest, so prepare yourself to spend some time here being wowed. In particular you should head to the top to admire the view. Up until the end of October, you can go up the Cathedral to see the sun setting over Liverpool. Known as Twilight Thursdays, tickets cost £5.50 per person.
An impressive 94-acre park which plays host to woodland, a lake and lots of fields. Perfect for getting the kids or dog to burn off that excess energy. Calderstone Park is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so is ideal for that spontaneous trip. There are a café, playground and a miniature train for the little ones.
The Daniel Adamson
A really fun day out in Liverpool should include a trip on Britain’s oldest steam tug boat. The Danny as it’s affectionately known dates back to 1903 and is well worth a visit. If you wish to just take a tour, you can do so whilst the boat is stationery. Tours are free, but they do like you to make a donation. If you wish to book a cruise you can do so. They also offer gin and real ale cruises for those that like a tipple.
You may recall that I waxed lyrical about Junkyard Golf in London, well it’s also open in Liverpool. There are three courses to choose from, each with nine fantastic holes. So grab some mates and get yourself to there for a round (and a nice cocktail to accompany).
Where else would you recommend visiting whilst you are in this stationary place? Are you planning a trip to Liverpool soon?
