This Summer we’re partnering with our friends at Liverpool BID Company to share the very best of what Town has to offer during the summer months. 

Whether you’re looking for ways to keep the kids entertained, planning a night out with friends, or ideas for great days out in the sunshine, we’ll be giving you the lowdown on what not to miss in Liverpool.

There’s so much to see and do in Liverpool that at some point in the day, you might need to take a pit stop to rest your legs, soak up the sun and take in our beautiful surroundings. From hidden gem courtyards to rooftop terraces and relaxing gardens, there’s so many places in Liverpool to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet.


ENJOY SOME PEACE AND QUIET AT BLUECOAT


The Garden at Bluecoat is a bit of a hidden gem perfect for taking a break to rest your legs. Step into their tranquil oasis and take some time out to soak up the sun or find some shade under the trees. You can even enjoy a refreshing drink from the cafe out in the garden too.


RELAX IN ST JOHNS GARDENS 


If you’ve been out exploring the World Museum, Walker Art Gallery and St George's Hall, take a minute to relax in St John’s Gardens. The quiet spot is right in the heart of St George’s Quarter and is the perfect space to enjoy the area's stunning architecture for an afternoon rest. 


TAKE IN THE VIEWS FROM CENTRAL LIBRARY ROOFTOP


If you fancy a different view of St George’s Quarter then head into Liverpool’s Central Library to take in the views from their roof terrace. Offering great views out across the city, the quiet terrace is the perfect sun trap for taking a break in the middle of all the exploring. 

Whilst you’re in the library, make sure to have a look at the Picton Reading Room. The stunning round room looks like something straight out of the Harry Potter books and it’s that quiet, you could hear a pin drop!


SEE THE SIGHTS FROM ST NICK’S CHURCH 


For a relaxing spot with one of the most iconic views in Liverpool, take a trip to St Nick’s Gardens on The Strand. Relax on one of the benches whilst enjoying a view of the Royal Liver Building and if you’re lucky, a huge Cruise ship at the Cruise Terminal. 


TAKE A STROLL DOWN PIER HEAD


For a different view of the Royal Liver Building, cross The Strand over to Pier Head. Here you’ll be able to relax on the steps alongside the canal, sit on a bench overlooking the River Mersey or take a quiet stroll along the waterfront around the Royal Albert Dock. Whilst this is one of the most famous locations in the city, it’s a great place to sit and relax whilst soaking up the sun in the summer months. 


ENJOY A DRINK AT THE BOMBED OUT CHURCH GARDENS


At the top of Bold Street you’ll find St Luke’s Church, or the Bombed Out Church as the locals call it. Aside from being one of the most famous landmarks in the city, the Bombed Out Church has relaxing gardens complte with a bar and food vendors so you can soak up the sun and enjoy a refreshing drink. 

Keep an eye out on the events programme at the Bombed Out Church as they host everything from music festivals, to cinema nights, and theatre shows.
