The Bombed Out Church
St Luke’s Church, or the Bombed Out Church as the locals call it, sits proudly at the top of Bold Street and is a great spot for a photograph, especially if you get to head inside. The Church is known as the Bombed Out Church due to the damage its roof took during…. But the walls now house a space used for everything from cinema nights to beer festivals, art commissions and gigs.
The Liverpool Sign
Liverpool’s own version of the Hollywood sign sits in Liverpool ONE and is the perfect spot for a selfie. The large letters spelling out ‘Liverpool’ are regularly covered in designs by local artists but at the moment it has a bit of a Eurovision twist!
The Cavern Club
It doesn’t get much better than the most famous club in the world as a backdrop for your group photo. The Cavern Club on Mathew Street welcomed The Beatles to their stage 292 times during their early days and has been a must visit spot ever since. Head down into the basement to enjoy the live music or stand beneath the sign for the ultimate selfie.

The Liverpool Skyline
Liverpool’s skyline is known across the world and one of the best places to see it from is across the Mersey River from Wirral.
