Family days out in Liverpool


There are many places for families to enjoy a day trip or short-break to Liverpool. From fun and educational museums, attractions and excursions to exhilarating activities like watersports, go karting and jungle gyms. 


The best thing is that loads of museums across Liverpool City Region are FREE. The National Museums Liverpool Collection has locations across Liverpool City Centre and Wirral including family favourites the World Museum and Museum of Liverpool. Hop on the Mersey Ferry to Eureka! in Wirral, a brilliant day out that makes science fun for the whole family  - plus you can admire the waterfront views on the way. 


There’s plenty of wide open space for kids and furry friends to enjoy across the region including miles of coastline and huge parks. 


For accommodation, take a look at the recommended hotels and serviced apartments suitable for families.
