Everybody loves a good photo opportunity, right? We’re lucky that Liverpool is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and has some pretty cool and impressive spots to grab the pictures that will be sure to rake in the likes on Instagram!

From Liver Bird wings to flower walls, graffiti warehouses and stunning pieces of architecture, your Liverpool photo album will be bursting at the seams by the time you leave. 

See how many of these spots you can check off your list. 


THE LIVER WINGS

You can’t come to Liverpool and not get your photo taken in front of the famous Liver Wings on Jamaica Street. The artwork was produced by local artist Paul Curtis to celebrate all of Liverpool’s Liver Birds and has been a favourite photo stop since.


THE LIVER BUILDING

Whether it’s from the ground or 15 floors up, the Royal Liver Building makes for a great backdrop for those Instagram selfies. Take in the views of Liverpool’s most famous landmark from below or head on the RLB 360 tour to get panoramic views of the city from under the clock tower. 


60 HOPE STREET FLORAL ARCH

The entrance to restaurant 60 Hope Street is always a favourite spot to get your picture taken at. All year round the front door is adorned in floral archways themed depending on the season.


THE BEATLES STATUE

The larger than life statues of the Fab Four are waiting for you to take your picture with them on our famous Waterfront. Right in front of the stunning Three Graces, you can't really get a better spot for those Instagram selfies. 


GOODNESS GRACIOUS ROOFTOP

The Goodness Gracious rooftop on top of Oh Me Oh My on The Strand boasts one of the best views in the city for a selfie. Head to the roof, sit amongst the flowers and grab a picture with the famous Liver building in the background.


THE FLORIST

If you’re a fan of flowers then the Florist on Hardman Street is the place to head. Not only do they have a great food and drink menu with plenty of options and a whole load of cocktails, they also have flowers in abundance. From a flower wall, to blooming trees and a calming pastel decor, it’s a great venue to grab a picture.

GHETTO GOLF

Ghetto Golf in the Baltic Triangle is the place to head for a night out with a difference - and to grab some instagram shots. The huge warehouse is covered floor to ceiling in graffiti and the crazy golf holes get weider the further you go along. With a fully stocked bar and a cocktail list as crazy as the holes, you won’t be able to stop yourself snapping away. 


THE PICTON READING ROOM

Find the Picton Reading Room in Liverpool Central Library and if you’re a fan of Harry Potter then you’re going to want a picture here for all the Hogwarts vibes. The walls are covered floor to ceiling with bookshelves that you can access via spiral staircases and it’s so quiet you can hear a pin drop. 

The rest of the library is also worth checking out, especially the roof terrace which has great views over the city.

THE PALM HOUSE

Head over to Sefton Park and go on the hunt for the Palm House. The three tiered Grade II listed Victorian Glasshouse is in the heart of the park and the perfect backdrop for your photoshoot. Inside you’ll find plants from around the world filling the glass dome. It’s also a regular venue for events and gigs which aren't to be missed!


THE BOMBED OUT CHURCH

St Luke’s Church, or the Bombed Out Church to the locals, sits proudly at the top of Bold Street and is a great spot for a photograph, especially if you get to head inside. Known as the Bombed Out Church because it no longer has a roof, it makes for an interesting photo for the collection.


THE MERCHANT

The hidden gem of a bar on Slater Street is a great place to grab a selfie. Either sit amongst the leafy bar, head into the adjoining Nightcrawler Pizza for an NYC inspired shot or even go down into the toilets for a photo with the popular ‘Wish you were here’ sign.

THE ANGLICAN CATHEDRAL 

The Anglican Cathedral is Britain's largest Cathedral and the 5th largest in Europe so you know it’s going to be something pretty special. Head inside to take in the cavernous space and stunning architecture or take a trip to the top of the tower for some of the best views over Liverpool. 


ANOTHER PLACE BY ANTONY GORMLEY

Jump the train 15 minutes down the road to Crosby Beach, home to Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’. The long stretch of sandy beach is now home to 100 cast iron life size versions of Gormly himself. It’s a beautiful place to head for a photo and a bit of fresh air.  


ABBEY ROAD MURAL

Fan of the Beatles? Then head over to Grafton Street in the Baltic Triangle to grab a picture of you and your mates recreating the famous Abbey Road album cover. 


BALTIC MARKET

Liverpool’s first street food market in The Baltic Triangle is a great place to grab a selfie, especially when it’s decorated for an event - which is pretty often. Check out what food is on offer at the many food stalls, take a seat on one of the long benches and grab a photo! 


THE CAVERN CLUB

You can't come to Liverpool without heading to Mathew Street to see the famous Cavern Club. Either stand in front of the legendary sign to grab your picture or head down into the basement to recreate the swinging 60s.


THE ROYAL ALBERT DOCK

Every corner of the Royal Albert Dock is worth a photograph so spend the afternoon taking a walk around to see what you can spot. Grab a photo in front of the entrance to The Beatles Story, lean against the Liverpool Mountain, or grab a selfie with the waterfront skyline. 


BOTANICAL GARDEN

Head to the Botanical Garden in the Baltic Triangle for some gin garden selfies. Sit on one of the benches or the grass bleachers and enjoy a gin cocktail in the glorious sunshine. If the weather takes a bit of a turn jump into the shed to keep yourself out of the rain.


KLOPP MURAL

Fan of LFC? Then take a trip to the Baltic Triangle to get your picture taken with the huge mural of Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp.
