Where to Eat in Liverpool

Although the Albert Dock might seem like the best place to eat for tourists wanting to grab a quick bite, it's often expensive and super busy. Instead, check out these alternatives in the city centre.

Maray Bold Street
@rebeccacrowe
Full of delicious small plates with a modern Middle Eastern vibe, Maray has two sites in the city, but their original Bold Street site is cosy, warming, and always a smash hit.

Mowgli Street Food
@rebeccacrowe
Even though Mowgli is a national chain now, this site was the original (and the best). Serving up a wide range of delicious and flavourful small plates, it's a favourite of locals and tourists alike.

The Pen Factory
@rebeccacrowe
From the outside, this is a completely unassuming building, but inside you'll find some of the best seasonal small plates anywhere in the city, and a huge range of local beers and wines to match. Make the most of the outdoor courtyard when the weather is nice!

Cose Buone Italian Food
@rebeccacrowe
I am reluctant to put this place in the guide because it's my absolute favourite place to eat in the city and it's such a hidden gem. Authentic, quick, and delicious Sicilian food with super friendly owners. Just leave some cannolis for me!

Where to Visit in Liverpool

It's hardly news to say that Liverpool is full of amazing places to visit, but this city is way more than just football and The Beatles - even though we do love both of those things. Here are some of my top places to visit in Liverpool.

World Museum
@rebeccacrowe
One of the many free museums and galleries around the city, with different floors dedicated to different things and revolving exhibits including planets, Egyptology, the history of Liverpool, and more.

Sefton Park
@rebeccacrowe
Get out of the city centre and visit the best park in Liverpool. You've got wide open spaces, the beautiful Palm House, lakes, an ice cream shop - what more could you want?

St Luke’s Bombed Out Church
@rebeccacrowe
Located in the heart of the city, the Bombed Out Church was as the name suggested. The open-air church now hosts events including film festivals, comedy shows, makers' markets, and even gin festivals.

Crosby Beach
@rebeccacrowe
Liverpool might not be known as a beachy city, but in the north of the city, we have a whole host of amazing beaches to check out. Head up to Crosby Beach where you can wander on the sand and check out Anthony Gormley's iconic Another Place statues. Just watch out for the quick sand if you go too far out!

Best Areas to Stay in Liverpool

The Docks

Arguably in the heart of the action, staying on the Docks in Liverpool is one of the most expensive places to stay in the city. You're close to the major tourist attractions and the M&S Bank Arena for any major shows, but this location definitely comes at a premium.

The Baltic Triangle

Just to the south of the main city centre, you'll find the Baltic Triangle. Essentially, it's an area that used to be a lot of warehouses and breweries that have been converted and gentrified into cool bars, restaurants, clubs, and more. If you're wanting nightlife or somewhere a little more creative, stay here. 

Ropewalks

Not afraid of a bit of noise? Staying in Ropewalks is a favourite of birthday parties, hen dos, and night owls. You're close to all the main city centre bars and restaurants and are within easy walking distance of the main shops and train stations. 

The Georgian Quarter

Up by the cathedrals, theatres, and universities, the Georgian Quarter tends to be a little bit less noisy and more cultured (with the exception of the streets around the student halls of residence). You can often find large rooms with lots of Georgian features and plenty of amazing restaurants and pubs on your doorstep.
