The 10 Best Things to Do in Liverpool, United Kingdom (UK)

February 15, 2018 Merry Kessler

Liverpool's fortunes have historically been tied to shipping. But imports and exports like sugar, spice and tobacco pale in comparison with Liverpool's most famous export of all—the Beatles. Relive the hysteria at the Beatles Story Experience, and check out Paul's childhood home, but also leave time for exploring Liverpool Cathedral and the Walker Art Gallery.

Casbah Coffee Club

The Holy Grail of The Beatles trail. The place where it truly all began for the greatest music phenomenon of the 20th century.

Reviewed By speedy45rpm - Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania

If you are coming to Liverpool to take in Beatles history, you simply have to come here for its integral connection to the early Fab Four. An amazing place -- almost like it is preserved in amber, I had no idea it could be so authentic. Nowhere can you feel the presence of the future legends like you can at the Casbah. Not at The Cavern, not at any of the other clubs in Liverpool or Hamburg. The out-of-the-way location and the setting in a residential area made me think at first that the driver got the address wrong. Our tour was led by Rory Best, Pete's brother. It was actually quite poignant; he knew them all as teen-agers and has an unparalleled personal connection to The Beatles in their formative stage. And Rory does indeed have a different take on Pete's history with the group than you typically get elsewhere. It's his brother, and it's very personal. Incomparable memorabilia. Rory is a very nice gentleman with amazing anecdotes. He was present at the creation -- not many like that around who are giving tours. An absolute must-see for any serious Beatles fan.

Liverpool Central Library

Reviewed By JVPG - Chichester, United Kingdom

This is a magnificent facility for the people of Liverpool. We spent a couple of days here, on a visit to Liverpool, doing family research and I have to say the library and records office where second to none. Everyone was very helpful and the place was buzzing. Obviously it is well used with great facilities. Also make a point of visiting the Reading room which is a sight to behold.

Anfield Stadium

Football is one of the city's greatest passions. There are two big clubs in the city, but it's those playing in red who enjoy most of the attention. Liverpool FC opens its Anfield Stadium to visitors during the day when no games are scheduled. Led by enthusiastic guides, the museum and stadium tour gives sports fans behind-the-scenes access to one of the best-known soccer clubs in the world.

Reviewed By Muhammad Monzur M - Birmingham, United Kingdom

A fabulous tour of Anfield guided by extremely passionate and knowledable hosts.
We got to learn a lot about the club's history and were guided through the stadium which including entering the dressing rooms, standing on the doug out, taking a selfie in Mo Salah's dressing room seat, sitting in the Kop and I even sat on Jürgen Klopp's pitch-side seat! Lol
Awesome experience.

Liverpool Cathedral

The Cathedral was only completed in 1978. It was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott when he was only 22 years old. It is a great space, without pillars or pews, the space is able to host huge Concerts, Exhibitions and fine dining on the main floor. The tower is 110m high and is the best view in the city.

Reviewed By JS-JN - Bristol

As a total non believer of hypocritical religion, this place is just mesmerising. Absolutely stunning. So beautiful. A wonderful example of a modern, but old Cathedral. Well worth a visit, Free entry. Be sure to find the whispering arch, it's excitingly spooky :)

Went to see the Terracotta Army exhibition, which was good.
However we went into the cafe on arrival and decided to have four bacon sandwiches and drinks.
The bacon had been cook sometime previously and was hard and cold. The "bread bun" it was on was like brioche so thick and dry. A pat of butter was given with each one....the ones they keep in the chiller cabinet and as hard as bricks. Consequently you couldn't spread it without ripping the bread.
Just needs somebody with a little bit of common sense....not asking to much is it?

Mendips - John Lennon Home

The home where John Lennon of the Beatles lived during his youth from 1945 to 1963.

Reviewed By Queen14259 - Charlotte, North Carolina

I visited the home of John Lennon on the Magical Mastery Tour bus. What made the visit special was not only being at the actual home but also the stories told by the host on the bus including the sad story of his mother having been knocked down by a car just across the road. Also his aunt telling him that he would not make any money being a musician after he practiced for hours. He since bought the aunt a wonderful home in a beautiful place. A wonderful reminder that you can become anything you wish if you believe.
There's something just so special about standing outside this house where this mega talent was just a little boy......phew!

Beatles statue

Reviewed By SagaloutsTour - UK

Opposite the Liver building, the statue of the fab 4, is well worth a photo opportunity, but stand to the side, not with them, as then you look at least the same size.
