Christmas in Liverpool

This Christmas in Liverpool we're decking the halls with boughs of holly and filling the streets with magical illuminations. Liverpool's Christmas lights are a winter wonder. 

Marvel at the traditional pine tree in Church Street and lose your heart to the 30m Christmas cone in Liverpool ONE. Pay a visit to Liverpool's Christmas Market outside the magnificent St George's Hall for bubbling hot mulled wine.

Glide across to the sparkling Ice Festival at the Pier Head featuring giant ice rink, take a thrilling ride on the UK’s longest ice slide, have a whirl on the Ferris wheel.

With pantos, rock n roll pantos, theatre, food and drink, culture, a giant Santa and even a visit from Santa Paws, we could go on all day...

Everyones Christmas is different, unique and special in its own way. We all have our own 'magical moments' over the festive period. We hope that this has inspired you to Visit Liverpool this Christmas.
