Our top picks in the local area
Tate Liverpool is a genuinely family friendly attraction. While you might not think kids will like or even enjoy a few hours here, you might be wrong as the staff go all out to engage children; talking about what they’re seeing and experiencing and allowing them to mill about the space freely without any shouts of ‘don’t do that!’
Sefton Park is a quiet oasis of calm in the middle of suburbia. A pretty green and leafy space in south Liverpool, which provides a serene country park feel, this park is a little know gem of a spot that is a favourite of locals.
The International Slavery Museum helps you find out about the millions of people, both past and present, who have been taken into slavery. Its main focus is on those people who were part of the dire situation in the transatlantic slave trade from the 1500’s through to the 1800’s. Liverpool was a major jumping off point for this trade. Entry into this sometimes harrowing but always thought provoking museum is free.
The Quiggins Shopping Centre is a quirky take on a shopping centre where a plethora of interesting, independent shops and boutiques have made their home including gifts and clothing shops, furniture emporiums and a sprinkling of cafes. This lovely building also incorporates some impressive Victorian architecture.
For eating out
The Tea Leaf Shop and Bar obviously serves some of the best selections of tea around but also does a great line of morning breakfasts including a filling and warming homemade porridge and a very decent selection of cakes, in fact the chocolate brownies here are almost a local legend.
Baltic Fleet is one of the last surviving and now iconic sailor’s pubs located on the Liverpool docks. Serving its own Wapping Beers which range from light and refreshing to darkly demonic, this is a true grit pub and a great genuine experience.
