A man and woman coming out of the Liverpool Philharmonic

Here in Liverpool, we’re all about enjoying our loved ones to the fullest. And what better time to do so than during a magical Christmas break? Mistletoe is no longer the most romantic thing at Christmas… Liverpool is!

So buckle up, wrap up and get set for a fantastic Winter break that you and your partner thoroughly deserve.


STAY🛏
Super Central - The Liner Hotel

Located right outside Lime Street Station, it won't take you long to find this nautical themed hotel and head to your room cabin to dump bags and start the day. There's portholes, sailor stripes and even a bar named Castaway with you guessed it, an Island getaway theme. 

Modern Waterfront Location - Pullman Hotel 

The Pullman Hotel is right next door to the Echo Arena and Royal Albert Dock, taking pride of place on Liverpool's world famous waterfront. The hotel is modern and stylish, with nods to Liverpool's maritime heritage - you won't find any check is desks here, but don't be alarmed a member of the team will greet you and check you in via a tablet. 


DAY 1
Christmas Shopping 🛍

Of course, we have Liverpool ONE, where absolutely anything and everything is at your fingertips and purse strings. From department stores Debenhams and John Lewis, to high street favourites Zara and Topshop, plus you’ll find designer luxury and pampering must-haves at Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar…you’ll have yourselves kitted out with the latest and best clothes items for 2019.

Oh and if you’ve time, what about a stop off in the Bar Hutte under the ginormous Christmas Tree?

Still in the heart of the city, Liverpool’s Metquarter is another must-see for anyone looking for something special. MAC, Jo Malone, Mococo, Kids Cavern, Hugo Boss and A|X Armani Exchange are all nestled here, ready to give you a shopping experience like no other.

After more of a bohemian festive shopping trip? Bold Street is the place; a prestigious street leading up towards St Luke’s church (or known locally as ‘The Bombed Out Church’ due to its roof, or lack thereof). Packed full of bistros, boutiques and world food stores, as well as shoe stores, gothic goods and furniture wares, you could easily spend hours here perusing the independent goodies that Bold Street has become a haven for. Make sure to take some pictures of the street looking its best, laden with rows upon rows of Christmas decorations and merry shoppers.

Indulge in festive Afternoon Tea

After a mass amount of shopping and walking, you’ll want to put some bags down and have a rest. It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to indulge. With that in mind, a merry twist on the traditional dining experience of afternoon tea is on the cards.

Set in 30 James Street, one of TripAdvisor’s top 10 hotels in Liverpool and a Titanic-inspired delight, Carpathia Rooftop Champagne Bar & Restaurant will be pairing mini mince pies and turkey cranberry sandwiches with stunning panoramic views of Liverpool’s iconic docklands. The perfect Christmas afternoon? Check.


 Stroll around Albert Dock and Makers Market

There's something super romantic about a stroll along the waterfront. At the Royal Albert Dock, never has a scene seemed so picturesque. Giant red pillars, dinky boats and canal barges moored in the dock all surrounded by twinkling lights and rustic chain fencing. Inside the pavillion you'll stumble upon some of the best independent stores. 

There's the Leather Satchell Co, selling handmade leather goods. Nauticalia is the place for unique, timeless collectables, clothing and gifts perfect for a nautical enthusiast. At Pride of Liverpool you'll find souvenirs of the city and at the Fab 4 Store, you'll find everything you need for a Beatles lover. 

On Sunday 9 and 16 December from 11am - 4pm there'll be two very special Christmas themed markets taking place. Peruse your way around the dock and find some of the finest local food, drink, art, design, vintage and modern craft. The Makers Market offers the opportunity to meet the producers, browse the stalls, sample and enjoy the music and performance and purchase some unique and handcrafted Christmas gifts.


Dinner on the Albert Dock

Christmas is the most wonderful time, and the festive period is the perfect excuse to indulge.

Albert Dock is home to some of the finest restaurants in a unique and iconic space.

We can guarantee you'll love Lunyalita, a lip smacking Catalonian Deli, Restaurant and Bar. Lunyalita serves some of the BEST tapas you'll ever taste. This year's Christmas menu includes luxurious platters of spanish meats and cheeses, patatas bravas, sticky parsnips, Catalan tomato bread and sharing platters of Creama Catalana. Need we say anymore?
 


DAY 2
Christmas Markets

To top off your Christmas adventure, Liverpool’s Christmas Markets are a must. 40 beautifully festooned stalls are nestled on the cobbled plateau of the spectacular grade I listed St George’s Hall, just across the way from Lime Street station. Items have come from far and wide across four continents to offer you some specially created treats that you just can’t find anywhere else from incredible cuisines to amazing arts and crafts.


Catch a Matinee at the Liverpool Empire

Head across the road to the Liverpool Empire Theatre for a matinee showing of the English National Ballet's Swan Lake. Whether you're a first time ballet-goer or a forever fan, you're sure to be captivated by the elegance and grace of these magnificent ballerinas decorating the stage to the tune of Tchaikovsky. 

If you're really looking to treat yourself, book yourself in for a pre show tipple and some snacks in the VIP lounge. 

If Swan Lake doesn't sound like your thing, how about a laugh along panto? This year at the Empire Jack and the Beanstalk takes to the stage. 


Cosy up in Bar Hutte

Follow the star, follow the giant flashing, heart emblazoned tree for your next festive treat. Underneath the 50 metre high tree is Bar Hutte. The alpine themed bar is located in the centre of Liverpool ONE, and whether you decide to go for a creamy hot chocolate or a cheeky spiced gin, its a great place to cosy up and feel festive while watching the world go by outside.

Its also the perfect place to plan your next move!


Now it's up to you!
