The Great British weather is famous for its unpredictability. If you find yourself caught in a rainy day in Liverpool, there are endless indoor activities all over the city which can keep you entertained until the sun comes out again. Here are three itineraries which will keep you busy inside whilst the weather isn't great...

DAY 1 - Ropewalks

BREAKFAST - Leaf offers the best brews in town with its extensive menu of loose leaf teas, but they also have an award-winning menu of light and full breakfasts, brunch and breakfast sandwiches – you’ll struggle to choose; just make sure you get to taste their homemade hash browns!

MUSEUM – Around the corner is art museum/cinema FACT (Foundation for Art & Creative Technology), take an hour or two to explore one of the exciting exhibitions on display or watch a film in one of the three state-of-the-art cinema rooms.

LUNCH – Head to Maray for delicious middle-eastern inspired small plates. PLUS… they have a great lunch time deal served from 12-5pm Monday-Friday!

GAME ON! - Roxy Ball Room is the best place to have a laugh with your mates whilst playing a 'friendly' game of ping pong, pool... or even better, BEER PONG! Expect a relaxed atmosphere with great music and cocktails.

DINNER – Below Roxy Ballroom is Lunya. Their menu provides a wide range of tapas and a la carte meals, many based on the concept of fusion - blending recipes, and ingredients from Spain and the UK to create ‘passion on a plate’.

EVENING – Fancy dancing until the early hours? There are loads of great bars and clubs in the Ropewalks area. We reccomend heading to Heebie Jeebies, The Merchant or the Jacaranda for a proper Liverpool night out.

DAY 2 - Waterfront

BREAKFAST – Head to Bill’s for a hearty breakfast which will set you up for the rest of the day. We recommend trying the full English or Buttermilk Pancakes with Banana, Strawberries and Blueberries.

MUSEUM - The waterfront is also home to some of the city’s enviable collection of national museums. The newest major addition to the Liverpool skyline is the distinctive white lines of the Museum of Liverpool, which was built in 2011 to sit alongside the Three Graces. Inside, the museum explores how the port and its people, have shaped the city’s story.

Another popular venue is Merseyside Maritime Museum and International Slavery Museum, a former warehouse which has four floors of exhibits looking at the influence the water has had on Liverpool over the last three centuries.

Tate Liverpool has a permanent collection boasting artwork from names such as Picasso, Matisse and Cezanne. It has also built a reputation for outstanding exhibitions, with its recent Chagall, Pollock and Warhol shows winning widespread critical acclaim. With a constantly changing events programme, a visit is strongly recommended.

LUNCH – Cosy and often described as a hidden gem, Smuggler's Cove offers world-famous rums and a deli-style food menu. We recommend trying their famous hanging kebabs, or perhaps a sharing platter between friends.

THE BEATLES – Brush up your knowledge on all things related to the Fab Four at The Beatles Story, an interactive museum which tells the tale of the Liverpool band which changed the music world. From their childhood to their Hamburg adventures, Beatlemania to their later solo careers. Filled with memorbilia and artefacts, the museum is fantastically detailed and accessible for all ages.

DINNER – Enjoy classic and contemporary Italian dishes at Gusto, a sophisticated bar and restaurant with a glamourous view overlooking the waterfront.

MUSIC – The Echo Arena is situated at the heart of Kings Dock, its unique – not only because of its location on Liverpool’s magnificent Waterfront, it is the only arena and convention centre under one roof in Europe. The Echo Arena regularly hosts big names in the music and comedy worlds from Elton John and Beyoncé to Peter Kay and Michael McIntyre. Check out their listings to find out what’s on.

Evening – You're bound to always have a great night in Revolution de Cuba. Expect delicious rum cocktails, salsa dancers and brilliant music which will take you straight to the heart of Cuban life.

DAY 3 - Georgian Quarter

BREAKFAST – There’s no better place to enjoy breakfast in the Georgian Quarter than at Moose Coffee Shop. Tuck into their famous American-style pancakes or their Lula Puebla dish… fresh smashed avocado served on a toasted sourdough with salsa verde, two poached eggs and chilli flakes.

CULTURE – Take a tour around Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral, the biggest Cathedral in the U.K. which dominates the city skyline for miles around. The architectural masterpiece features the highest and heaviest carillon of bells in the world and Britain’s mightiest organ. Words cannot do it justice, it must be seen to be believed. 

LUNCH – Head to HOST for their Chop Chop Express Lunch menu... Delicious Asian-inspired small plates for only £6 each!

THEATRE – Check out what shows are on at the Everyman Theatre, or experience the world-famous Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the recently renovated, amazing Philharmonic Hall.

DINNER – Push the boat out and dine at the amazing 60 Hope Street, a Grade II listed building offering the finest cuisine, with a contemporary twist. We recommend trying the Paprika Monkfish with Octopus, Chorizo and Pipperade dish from the A la Carte menu.

EVENING – The new ‘place to be’ in the Georgian Quarter is The Florist, a sensory experience with floral cocktails, beautiful décor and great music. Other gems in the area include Frederiks, Buyers Club and Jenever Gin Bar.
