Since moving back north I have taken some time to really explore some of the fantastic cities and beauty spots that are now just a stone throw away.
Liverpool has been a recent excursion where the kids and I have discovered there is a whole host of family activities to get involved with in the upcoming months.
Liverpool is about 810 years old, it is famed for its docks, the first being built around 1715. During the war it was the second most bombed city in the UK, and although the recession of the 80’s hit Liverpool hard, it managed to bounce back and thrive once more.
There is no shortage of things to do. You can fuel your Beatles love, go hunting ghosts by night, visit the Merseyside maritime museum, or simply hit the shops.
Liverpool ONE is a great website to source ideas of what to do in this beautiful city.
My kids were instantly drawn to the Odeon IMAX cinema and we all fed our competitive gene at Jungle Rumble Adventure Golf Park.
My twelve-year olds love browsing the stores in a busy centre, and my wallet was left feeling slightly worse for wear.
Liverpool is host to some fantastic museums, you can visit the British Music Experience, The Museum of Liverpool, or step back in time with a visit to The Hardman House. The International Slavery Museum is riveting, and the kids will leave educated as well as having a fab day out!
A Mersey with a view
If you want to take in the skyline, then get on the Mersey. You can take in a River Explorer cruise and learn about the rich Maritime history of Liverpool whilst having a fantastic look at the skyline.
What are you waiting for, get that trip booked in now!
