Now that lockdown measures are starting to ease it means we can safely begin to explore Liverpool once again.

If you’re wondering about what will be available to do with the family, then don’t worry, we have you covered! There are plenty of places to safely head with children of all ages whilst still being able to enjoy everything our wonderful city has to offer. 


TRAVELLING TO LIVERPOOL


There are plenty of ways to safely travel into Liverpool City Centre to enjoy your day out. 

If you’re using public transport then making sure you’re following Government advice is super important, to not only keep yourself, but everyone else safe too. Face coverings are now mandatory on public transport so don’t forget yours when leaving the house. 

For the train, Merseyrail are asking you to wear a face covering, keep a 2 metre distance and wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before and after your journey. Planning ahead and buying your tickets in advance is also advised! Visit Merseyrail’s website for more information

If you’re driving into the city centre then there are plenty of car parks open for you to use. For example, the QPark at Liverpool ONE is the perfect central location with plenty of social distancing measures in place. 

Or you can cycle! Grab your bike and helmet and use the dedicated cycle lanes around the city to safely ride into Liverpool. 


WORLD MUSEUM 


Start your day by heading to the World Museum (reopening 15th July) at St George’s Quarter. The Museum is full of exhibitions that little kids and big kids alike will love! From exploring Ancient Egypt to the Dinosaurs, the bug house and the beautiful aquarium, there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained. 

Social distancing measures will also be in place to keep everyone safe, including a one way system, controlled entry and hand sanitiser stations for regular use. For more information on these measures check their website and social media channels before visiting.


CASTLE STREET


Castle Street has always been a foodie heaven and now that there’s plenty of outdoor seating due to the Liverpool Without Walls Project, it’s perfect for the whole family to enjoy lunch in the sun. You can’t really go wrong with pizza so book a table in advance for Rudy’s Pizza. Their classic Italian pizzas come with everyone’s favourite toppings so it’s perfect for even the fussiest of eaters.  

Social distancing guidelines have been put in place for everyone’s safety too. There will be a 1 metre distance between the tables, a track & trace detail collection and extra cleaning will be implemented too. 

We’re back. Open from now ‘til late. See you soon.

WALK ALONG PIER HEAD


After lunch, take a stroll down to Liverpool’s Pier Head to see some of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Grab a photo with the whole family in front of the Royal Liver Building and even the Fab Four themselves! The larger than life Beatles statues are in front of the Cunard Building and make for a great photo opportunity. 

If the weather is nice, treat everyone to an ice cream sitting on Pier Head and take in the breeze coming from the River Mersey, you might even see a ferry go past too! 

The British Music Experience has now re-opened. Take the family yo explore the story of British Music through costumes, instruments, performance and memorabilia. Don't forget the Gibson Interactive Studion where you can learn a musical instrument! 


ROYAL ALBERT DOCK


After the nice relaxing break head towards the Royal Albert Dock to see some more of our beautiful landmarks, there’s plenty to explore here! 

Find the Liverpool Mountain by Tate Liverpool, spot some tall ships and have a look around the independent shops. It’s a great area to spend time with the whole family and will make for some great photos for the album from your day out.  


THE BEATLES STORY


The great thing about the Royal Albert Dock is all the museums and art galleries it has. From the Merseyside Maritime Museum to the International Slavery Musuem and Tate Liverpool, there’s plenty to explore and all the more reason to return for another trip when they reopen.

However, you can’t have a day out in Liverpool without doing something Beatles related so head to The Beatles Story (reopening 20th July 2020) to learn all about the famous four lads from Liverpool. Book your tickets in advance to make sure you can get in at your most convenient time. 

The Beatles Story is the world’s largest permanent exhibition dedicated to telling the story of The Beatles’ lives and career with plenty of interactive exhibitions and memorabilia to see. You’re never too young to fall in love with the Beatles!

Остаётся только вспоминать отпуск.. До поездки в Ливерпуль я мало что знала о Биттлз, поэтому завышенных ожиданий от музея не было, скорее желание поставить галочку "здесь была я". Неожиданно экспозиция и аудиогид оказались очень логичные, интересные и даже интерактивные) Уважение к менеджменту Брайна Эпстайна возрасло в разы. Крайне рекомендую к посещению "после нашей эры" #liverpool #beatlesstory #beatles #pastperfect

LIVERPOOL ONE


After a trip back in time with The Beatles you might be feeling a little peckish so head over to Liverpool ONE for something to eat. 

We would recommend having a look at Yard & Coop - the kids will love it here because you get to sit in your own personal ‘chicken coop’ (please note children are only allowed in until 19:30)! They have a dedicated children's menu with kids also getting to eat free with every adult meal purchased from 12pm-6pm too. Make sure you book a table in advance so you don’t miss out. 

Yard & Coop have a range of safety guidelines in place, from spaced out tables to protective screens, contactless ordering and payment only, accessible hand sanitiser and increased cleaning measures. 


Due to venues having different guidelines, booking systems and opening hours we would always recommend checking ahead with each one before your visit. For more information on how to safely visit Liverpool as lockdown measures ease have a look at our dedicated blog
