Planning Your Liverpool Visit

Getting Around

With Liverpool John Lennon Airport on the edge of the city, it’s easy to have a flying visit. But once you’re there, the city has plenty of public transport, whether it is by road, rail or river. For any attractions along the waterfront, hop onto a Mersey Ferries service for something different.

Where should you stay in Liverpool?

The city is brimming with hotels, apartments, hostels, and B&Bs. There’s plenty to choose from - whatever your price range - and all with that famous Scouse welcome. For somewhere with a view, why not stay in rooms overlooking The Albert Dock, close to chic restaurants and bars. No matter where you end up, you’ll be able to travel easily to all of the city’s must-see sights.

What people are saying about Liverpool

Great value, informative and very entertaining.

We are local to the area, however our 3 children had never been on the Ferry or bus tour and did not know much about Liverpool's history. The tour guide on the bus was very informative and his scouse humour would have stood up well at the Empire Theatre :-) We would highly recommend the bus tour to everyone, as we learnt lots of new interesting facts about the City. Sorry can't remember our tour guides name, but he looked like a young (Good Looking) Harry Hill :-)
