Explore the City 

In this section, explore some of Liverpool’s beautiful outdoor spaces, much-loved neighbourhoods and see what else the City Region has to offer. 


Outdoor Spaces

You'd be surprised at how much coastline and how many green spaces are within a few minutes reach of Liverpool City Centre. Sefton Park is a Grade I listed, 235 acre park and it's only 4 miles from town. 


Liverpool city centre is often referred to in 'quarters' - and yes there's more than four. Getting to know the neighbourhood quarters is a fab way to plan your day based on location. The city features the areas; Georgian Quarter, Ropewalks, Chinatown, Baltic Triangle, St George's Quarter, Waterfront, Cavern Quarter and the Knowledge Quarter. 


Beyond the City

Outside of the bustling centre, you'll find the neighbouring boroughs. Take the iconic ferry across the Mersey or jump on the Merseyrail to Wirral Peninsula where you can enjoy miles of coastline and countryside scenes. In Southport there's fun events for all the family thanks to the Southport Airshow, British Musical Fireworks Championships and the Flower Show. 

We think that the whole of the city region is unmissable, but here we’ve narrowed it down to our favourites that we think any trip to Liverpool is incomplete without paying a visit to. From shopping and dining, to music and theatre, head to one or a few of Liverpool’s quarters that make up Liverpool’s undeniable cultural vibe.

The city region also has an abundance of outdoor spaces, parks, beaches and stunning coastline to explore. They are easy to access by train and there is so much to discover. Often host to an abundance of annual summer events, some are also home to unique art collections and all of them are a great places to appreciate the outdoors.
