July is over and we had a cracker. God knows we can’t remember what went on, we were certainly kept on our toes in terms of things to do! Take a look at these snaps and if you weren’t here (shame) we’re sure that it’ll help convince you to spend your next July in Liverpool.

Hurrah! We had the hottest day of the year! Now that’s what summer’s about. Lottie shares with us (not literally) her ‘pick’ of rose petal cocktails while admiring Liverpool’s prettiest view. As temperatures hit above 30 degrees, everyone headed to Liverpool’s finest alfresco spots.

Over the weekend of 30 – 31 July, Liverpool lit up and celebrate Pride. St George’s Plateau was the main venue for the city-wide party and a number of Liverpool landmarks lit up in support including Liverpool’s oldest building, the Bluecoat, Liverpool Town Hall, the Playhouse Theatre, Everyman Theatre, St John’s Beacon, the Liverpool Wheel and we even noticed shop window displays!
The event was the most well-attended since Pride started in 2010.

If I had a pound for every this tribute to the Fab Four was photographed…well you definitely wouldn’t be reading this blog put it that way.
The now top selfie spot in the city arrived in January 2016 and I don’t think we’ve seen the poor lads alone since. Now a firm favourite for fans of The Beatles we see a lot of uploads on social, but this is a favourite. Why? Because what represents the British weather better than this? The sky we can see looks pretty worrying, we have sunglasses, shorts and a thick jacket, what looks like puddles on the floor and glorious sunshine…. Good old British summertime.

On July 18, Liverpool welcomed the Celebrity Cruises Silhouette Liner to the busy Cruise Liverpool Terminal. Every year, Liverpool’s Cruise terminal gets busier and it means we get to see an abundance of top deck views… from Instagram only unfortunately.
This image from tismfu captures a beautiful evening sky over Princes Dock and over to North Liverpool.

In the last weekend of July, Sefton Park a magnificent Grade I listed park in Liverpool came alive with LIMF – Liverpool International Music Festival, the biggest FREE music festival in Europe. Headliners The Wombats and Sigma saw the park packed out! Stages were located throughout the 235 acre park.

On 14th July, Liverpool’s busy Cruise Terminal welcomed The Azamara Quest Cruise Liner. On board just happened to be travel blogger Mr Scott Eddy… who just happened to be one of the Top 10 Global Travel Influencers on Klout, so we couldn’t help but notice some amazing videos he’d tweeted out to his 957,000 followers! This is one of our favourites.
