Liverpool is one of those cities that I think is overlooked when it comes to a family city break however it is full of amazing things to see and do. When looking for places to stay in Liverpool check out Expedia for some great deals on hotels and then why not visit some of my top things to do in Liverpool
as a family.
Underwater Street is a fabulous hands-on discovery centre full of amazing experiments, messy crafts, imaginative play equipment and more. Although we have only visited a handful of times it is somewhere that the girls have really enjoyed no matter how old they are as there is something for everyone.
Knowsley Safari Park
One of the girls favourite places to visit and one that has made memories for them after one of the monkeys decided to eat part of our car. Knowsley Safari park is great for getting up close to the animals, do remember that there is a car safe route which goes around the monkeys and one where you can laugh at all the people who went through it instead. However, nothing is funnier to a child than a monkey sitting on the wing mirror and looking through the window at them whilst eating your windscreen wiper.
The Yellow DuckMarine Tour
We absolutely loved this tour when we went on it. An hour-long tour of Liverpool that takes in both the land and the water. You drive around seeing the sites before the duckmarine drives into the water to continue the tour. Absolutely fantastic and something the kids love.
Beautiful architecture, fabulous gardens and a working farm plus lots of countryside to explore, Croxteth Hall is a great place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre for a while.
The spaceport is a fantastic interactive experience where you can learn all about space. With different zones to explore including a planetarium, it is a great place to visit with budding astronauts and something that the whole family will enjoy.
Museum of Liverpool
Museums nowadays are full of interesting things to look at but did you know that a lot of them now cater for children too. With interactive exhibits and an event programme to keep you busy, it is always worth having a look at what they have on offer. The Museum of Liverpool is no exception and there are lots of things for families to do there including a special “little Liverpool” section aimed at children aged 7 and under.
Following on from the museums you really need to visit the World Museum where they have an amazing selection of exhibits on display including dinosaur eggs, Egyptian mummies as well as an aquarium and a planetarium. Its like lots of different museums all rolled into one and so much to see you might need to come back another day just to fit it all in.
Liverpool Football Stadium tours
As a Liverpool FC fan obviously I recommend that you go to Anfield and have a look at the grounds and the museum that showcases our successful history as one of the best clubs in the world but it wouldn’t be fair of me not to mention Everton, so there you go I mentioned them. Anfield is a fantastic stadium steeped in history and the Liverpool Fc Story is a family-friendly interactive museum that allows the kids to have lots of fun practising penalties and learning all about the team I love.
Maybe it is my love of Liverpool FC or maybe it is all the amazing memories we have built up in this fabulous city but I would definitely recommend that you head there as a family and check it out. These were just my top ten places to visit, but you can see even more at Visit Liverpool.
