WHERE TO STAY 


When you visit a new city you want to make sure that your accommodation is right for your stay and there are so many places in Liverpool to accomodate for everyone. For this blog we have gone a bit luxury and picked The Hard Days Night Hotel but for some more inspiration check out these other places to rest your head

HARD DAYS NIGHT HOTEL

PRICE: Average £430 for three nights and two people in a luxury room. 

If you’re a fan of The Beatles you can't come to Liverpool and not stay in the Hard Days Night Hotel - the world’s only Beatles inspired hotel. Located in the Beatles Quarter, the Hard Days Night offers luxurious accommodation with a Beatles twist. 


DAY ONE


BREAKFAST - CASTLE STREET TOWNHOUSE

PRICE: £30.00 (for two people)

Starting your trip off with a big breakfast is super important, you need to get your energy levels up for your packed out visit to the city. We would recommend heading down to Castle St Townhouse for a hearty breakfast on one of Liverpool’s most impressive streets.

  • We recommend: The Townhouse breakfast is a must, you can't go wrong with a full english in the morning and at £11.50 you definitely get your money's worth. If you fancy something lighter then try out their range of eggs just how you like it for around £6.00 and wash it down with a breakfast cocktail. 

MORNING ACTIVITY - THE BEATLES STORY

PRICE: £34.00 (for two people)

You can’t come to Liverpool without going to The Beatles Story! The immersive experience takes you on a journey around the lives and careers of the Fab Four and it’s unlike anything you will have seen before. From the White Room to the the Yellow Submarine and a recreation of the Cavern - it’s like you have stepped back into a piece of history. 

  • Top Tip: make sure you check out the Fab4 Store at the end for some Beatles themed gifts. 

LUNCH - SANTA MALUCO 

PRICE: £25.00 (for two people)

Santa Maluco’s pizza menu is perfect for a lunch time snack and the way they serve them is even better. They serve their pizza in Rodizio style which means ‘all you can eat’ so they keep bringing you samples of pizza until you tell them to stop! We don't think you could ever get enough of their pizza though. 

  • We recommend: You can buy by the slice or a whole pizza but we would definitely give the Rodizio a go. They have toppings like Mac & Cheese, BBQ Club, Doug Life and What The Duck so it would be a shame to miss out on any of them!

AFTERNOON ACTIVITY - RLB 360

PRICE: £30.00 (for two people)

Liverpool’s most famous landmark is the Royal Liver Building and as of 2019 you can now take a tour up to the top of the building! The tour takes you up to the 10th and 15th floors for you to take in all the history of the building and the stunning views over Liverpool. There’s also a bit of a surprise inside the tower too…

  • Top Tip: Don’t forget your camera for this one, you’re going to want to take some pictures at the top!

EVENING MEAL - ROSA’S THAI CAFE

PRICE: £40.00 (for two people)

Rosa’s Thai Cafe at The Royal Albert Dock is the first to open outside of London and with a huge reputation and a fantastic menu of authentic Thai dishes you can't really go wrong here for dinner. Pick from noodles, curries, meat off the grill, vegetable options and loads of sides. You’ll be spoilt for choice. 

  • We recommend: Pick a few starters, Rosa’s signature butternut red curry, Stir fried aubergine and a couple of drinks and you’ll have a great meal.

EVENING ACTIVITY - LIVERPOOL GIN DISTILLERY/ BAR CRAWL

PRICE: £50.00 (for two people)

If you’re a gin fan, head over to the Liverpool gin distillery to sample some of their finest gins whilst relaxing in the stunning bar. 

If you’re feeling a bit adventurous you can also book onto to one of their tours and gin tasting sessions for £38.50 each. 

After that head into Castle Street to see what other bars you can find or check out our blog for some of our top bar picks


DAY TWO


BREAKFAST - THE QUARTER

PRICE: £20.00 (for two people)

The Georgian Quarter is one of the most beautiful parts of town so it only seems fitting that you should have a stunning breakfast there too. Head down to The Quarter on Falkner Street for breakfast on a cobble stoned street with a view!

  • We recommend: Their Quarter Full Breakfast is so good! You can get the classic, veggie or vegan options too so everyone can enjoy a wonderful breakfast. If you’re not feeling a full english try out a sausage or bacon bap and wash it all down with a cup of coffee. 

Have you tried our full Vegan Breakfast yet!? 😋

MORNING ACTIVITY - BEATLES TOUR

PRICE: around £40.00 (for two people - each tour varies in price)

The best way to spend the morning in Liverpool is with a Beatles tour and there are loads of different ones you can jump on. If you fancy resting your legs grab a ticket to ride on the Magical Mystery Tour. The Magical Mystery bus takes you around all the famous Beatles landmarks from Strawberry Field, their childhood homes, to Penny Lane - you’ll get to see everything!

At 34 floors up you will be able to sit back and relax with sandwiches, scones and a selection of pastries flying high above the Liver Birds. This isn't a lunch you will forget in a hurry. 

  • Top Tip: Afternoon Tea here needs to be booked in advance so make sure you prepare for this before your trip to the city to avoid disappointment. 

AFTERNOON ACTIVITY - BRITISH MUSIC EXPERIENCE

PRICE: £28.00 (for two people)

The British Music Experience is housed inside the stunning Cunard Building on Liverpool’s Waterfront and is a must to visit when in the city.

Think the Beatles, Adele, Bowie and Oasis - there is something from everyone's favourite British band in there. 

  • Top Tip: Whilst you are there head over to The Museum of Liverpool too. It’s a stone's throw away from the BME and definitely worth a visit. It’s also FREE! 

EVENING MEAL - MOWGLI

PRICE: £45.00 (for two people)

Mowgli is unavoidable when you come to Liverpool. The Indian Street food restaurant is that good we have two in the city! Head down to Bold Street or Water Street for an evening of fantastic authentic Indian food in a stunning setting. The mouth watering menu makes choosing what to have difficult but whatever you pick you won’t be disappointed. They are famous for their yoghurt chat bombs, Mowgli Chip butty and Himalayan Cheese on Toast - trust us, it’s pretty good!

  • We recommend: If you want to experience an authentic Indian Street food meal we would recommend ordering a Tiffin Box. The chef will choose four different tiers of meat, vegetables and carbs for you to try. Make sure you get the yoghurt chat bombs too!

DAY THREE


BREAKFAST - MOTHER ESPRESSO

PRICE: £18.00 (for two people)

Head down to Mother Espresso on Wood Street for a laid back breakfast for your last day in the city. The super cool coffee bar is in the perfect area to grab something to eat and a cup of coffee to go.

MORNING ACTIVITY - FOOTBALL TOUR

PRICE: £40-30 (for two people depending on which stadium you go to)

If you’re a football fan then visiting one of our two stadiums should definitely be on your itinerary for your trip. If you’re a Liverpool FC fan then head down to the Anfield Tour to take a look round where the reds play. Explore the changing rooms, sit in the Kop and touch the famous Anfield sign before heading out pitch side. 

If you’re more of a blue, head over to Everton’s Goodison Park for a trip round the toffee’s stadium. Sit in your favorite players seat in the changing room, take in the view from the Director’s Box and see what it feels like to sit in the dugout.

EVENING MEAL - VIVA BRAZIL

PRICE: Between £35.00 - £60.00 (for two people)

Your last meal in the city calls for a feast. Head down to Viva Brazil on Castle Street for all you can eat Brazilian food. Once you are seated, their troop of passadors (meat carvers) move around the tables offering up to fourteen of the finest cuts of meats cut straight to your table.

It’s just another day...
