Liverpool is full of so much art, culture, food and drink, you’ll definitely need more than a weekend to fit it all in.

When Michelle from Yorkshire visited the city she explored everything from art galleries, ferries across the Mersey, drinks surrounded by flowers and food market heaven. See how Michelle did Liverpool her way.   


If you’ve got a day in Liverpool, then there’s only one way to travel. So much more than a Ferry ‘cross the Mersey, Mersey Ferries are an attraction in their own right. Explorer Cruise take you along the Liverpool bay where you can take in the finest views of the Mersey coastline, including the famous Three Graces. You can also hop off along the way and visit Spaceport and the U-boat Story.


Just a short walk from the Ferry Terminal you’ll find the Museum of Liverpool. Standing proud on the waterfront, it tells the story of the city through its people and objects. We always make sure to pay a visit when we’re in Liverpool.

From the famous faces of John and Yoko, (don't miss the Double Fantasy exhibition on till November) to its old trams, the Museum of Liverpool is the best way to get to know what makes the city tick. 

I never go to Liverpool without seeing what’s on at Tate Liverpool. I’ve seen some incredible exhibitions here like Mondrian and Roy Lichtenstein. If you love art, it’s a must visit. There’s also loads of secret spaces around the city for art and culture lovers with events throughout the year too!

Liverpool has some of the most interesting architecture

I haven't been to The Florist before but it’s INSTA-PERFECT! The inside is jaw dropping and it was buzzing on the Saturday afternoon we went. It’s a contemporary bar and restaurant in a Grade II listed building on Hardman Street makes for a great place to stop for a drink. 

Decorated with breathtaking floral installations, two full sized blooming trees and a flower wall, it combines striking displays with fresh cocktails and a stunning food menu.

If I want to hit the shops, Liverpool ONE is always the place I go. I like being able to nip into a highstreet chain, pop into a designer boutique and have a look round an independent shop. There’s a row of cafes and restaurants on the terrace too making it a great place to hang out with a glass of wine and a bite to eat after an afternoon shopping. 


The Baltic Market, Liverpool’s first street food market, is only a short walk from Liverpool city centre and it’s definitely worth a visit. Housed inside the former Cains Brewery, the market celebrates Liverpool’s vibrant food and drink scene with food stalls offering some of the best food around all under one roof. I couldn't imagine liverpool without it now.
