When you're in a city that boasts so much to see and do, it's handy to narrow it down (just a little). 

So, we’ve decided to celebrate the abundance of amazing things that our city has with 101 unashamed bucket list items that will help you fall in LOVE with Liverpool and its surrounding areas.

From world-class art to karaoke, it's all here.

Heritage centre Willimasons Tunnels is located in the Edge Hill area of the city. The tunnels were built between 1810 and 1840 and the purpose of the tunnels has been widely discussed but still unknown! Alongside the tours the tunnels also make a great venue for a night out!


3. TAKE A WALK ALONG SOUTHPORT PIER


SOUTHPORT PIER WITH FISH & CHIPS

Southport Pier is Grade II listed and it's pretty big, being the second longest in Britain - but forget the facts and figures, it's beautiful and there’s nothing better than fish and chips by the sea.

Anyone want to peer at a pier? Sorry that's piertiful of me. I'll stop now
