Trying to find something to keep everyone happy can be a bit of a balancing act when visiting a new city, but luckily Liverpool’s got it covered.

Lee, Kelly and their three kids, Abi, Molly and Harrison visited Liverpool from Birmingham for a family day out and they packed in all the best bits of the city. From sky high views, selfies with The Beatles and a trip to the beach, find out how they did Liverpool their way.


Start your day at the Wheel of Liverpool outside the M&S Bank Arena. You would never think that putting the whole family in a 60-meter-high pod would be the best place to start...but when you have views right across the city, the River Mersey, the Wirral and even the Welsh Mountains, you’d be a fool not to. It’s also right next to the Royal Albert Dock making it the perfect place to sport some more of the city’s top attractions.  


The Beatles Story is only a stone’s throw away from the Wheel of Liverpool and is a great place to take the kids to learn all about the history of The Beatles. With music mad teenagers we grabbed their attention by teaching them all about the Fab Four. it’s funny how teenagers in every era are inspired by The Beatles, not just those in 1964. There’s a huge collection of Memorabilia, outfits, images and even the piano from ‘Imagine’. It’s an amazing way to learn more about the band whose music has defined generations. 

Once you’ve delved deep into the story of the world’s biggest band, take a walk over to the Three Graces where you can snap a selfie with the Fab Four themselves. Right outside the Royal Liver Building you’ll find larger than life statues of John, Paul, George and Ringo and makes for a perfect holiday selfie.

Finding a place for the whole family to eat can be challenging on a trip to a new city, but not in Liverpool. Our favourite spot is Rudy’s Pizza on Castle Street. It’s relaxed and friendly with amazing food and the best staff. The best thing is we can keep all the kids happy with their favourite pizzas and classic Italian desserts.  

Sunday done right 🙌🏻

When you’re up on the Wheel of Liverpool, one of the things you can see is Anfield Stadium, Home to Liverpool Football Club. With Liverpool fans in the family we had to put the stadium tour on our list of things to do. It’s fascinating to learn about the history of the club, to visit the museum, walk pitchside and sitting in our favourite players seats in the dressing room. This is probably the closest we’ll ever be to experience a day in the life of a Premier League Football so we made the most of our five minutes of fame. 


For a completely different vibe we headed to one of the most beautiful spots in Liverpool, Crosby Beach. At only a 15 minute train ride out of Liverpool City Centre you’ll find Another Place, 100 cast-iron statues looking out to sea created by artist, Anthony Gormley. Having been there for over 10 years, the statues have all taken on the elements of the sea and it’s great fun finding your favourite ones to grab a picture with. On a clear day you can even see the Royal Liver Building!

To be able to head to this picturesque sandy beach just a short journey out of the city centre is the cherry on top of visiting Liverpool for us. There really is something for everyone.
