GOOD MORNING LIVERPOOL

The first thing you will notice about the Baltic Triangle is how creative it is. From the street art to the bars and foodie spots, it just beats with an alternative vibe and creativity. Inside Cains Brewery you’ll find the Baltic Market, Dockleaf, Tusk, Red Brick Vintage and loads more. You could spend the whole weekend here!

Street art spotting around the Baltic Triangle is something that should be on everyone’s itinerary too, check out this blog on some of the best pieces of art not to miss. 

At only a 15 minute walk from the Baltic Triangle you’ll find Probe Records - a must visit for music and vinyl lovers. The small independent record store has an incredible collection of LPs from across the decades in every genre. From rock, pop, jazz, reggae, soul to albums from some of Liverpool’s top bands, you definitely won't leave empty handed. Since the 70s it’s been a Liverpool institution and Dead or Alive frontman, Pete Burns, even famously worked behind the counter. 


WORLD ON A PLATE

Head over to Castle Street to find pizza straight from Brazil at Santa Maluco. Served with plenty of flair and theatre, they cook their pizzas in a wood fire oven and cover them with all your favourite sweet and savory toppings. Team a few slices with some of their feisty cocktails with a modern twist and lunch will be sorted. 

The building is also a former bank and there's a rumour they still have the vaults in the basement! 


NATURE MEETS CULTURE

If i’ve spent a busy morning in the city centre, then I love heading down to Sefton Park in the afternoon. It’s like Liverpool’s beautiful back garden. There are huge grassy spaces to relax, play football or catch a festival and there’s even a boating lake, tennis courts and the stunning Victorian Palm House to explore. 

Whilst you’re at Sefton Park, take a pit stop at Lark Lane to explore all the boho shops, cafes and restaurants that have loads of character. One of my favourite places here is Freida Mo’s. It’s a vintage store with a cafe and bakery and I always try to get a seat by the window to watch the world go by. 


LIVERPOOL BY NIGHT

As the sun goes down you need somewhere to hang out. The best places to go in Liverpool are the ones that move effortlessly from day to night and no one does it better than Buyer’s Club. Tucked away on Hardman Street, grab a light bite and enjoy a sunset drink in the garden as the live music kicks off for the evening.
