Can I visit Liverpool?

If you are travelling from an international destination there are different isolation and testing rules based on your vaccination status and whether you are travelling from a ‘red list’ country.

Further information on this can be found on the UK Government website. 

Are attractions open in Liverpool?


Attractions in Liverpool are open with safety measures. You are required by law to wear a face covering (unless exempt) inside most indoor spaces including attractions from 10 December 2021. Find a full list of places you are required to wear a face covering on the UK Government website.

Are bars, restaurants and clubs open in Liverpool?

Yes, restaurants, bars and clubs are open in Liverpool. Face coverings are not required. Clubs require an NHS COVID PASS, more details on this are listed below.

When do I need to wear a face covering?

Face coverings are compulsory at all indoor public spaces, public transport and taxis. This is now required by law and those not wearing a mask could face fines.

The above does not apply if you are exempt. For more information on when you need to wear a face covering please visit the Government website.

When do I need an NHS COVID-19 PASS?

From 15 December, certain venues and events will be required by law to check that all visitors aged 18 years or over are fully vaccinated (currently a full course of vaccination without the need for a booster, but this will be kept under review), have proof of a negative test in the last 48 hours, or that they have an exemption. This means that those aged 18 years or over must show their NHS COVID Pass, or an alternative proof of a negative test result, such as an email or text proof, to gain entry into these venues.

More information on the NHS COVID-19 PASS can be found here.

What do I do if I visit Liverpool and start to experience some of the symptoms of Coronavirus whilst I am there?

Inform the accommodation provider of your situation. If you have any coronavirus-like symptoms, even just one, you must isolate immediately for 10 days (don’t wait for a test or a test result before doing so) and then book a test here. The test needs to be done in the first five days of having symptoms.
