Featured Liverpool Hotels



Set on England's west coast overlooking the Mersey River and Irish Sea, Liverpool is an old maritime city and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its citizens, known as Liverpudlians or "Scousers", have a long-standing reputation for excelling in music, the arts and entertainment – and for having a kooky sense of humour.

The city's most famous attractions includes its football teams Liverpool Football Club (LFC) and Everton, the largest collection of museums and galleries in the UK outside London and a wealth of chart-topping bands including The Beatles.

Liverpool city layout
Liverpool is neatly sectioned into "quarters", extending northeast from the waterfront and docks and out to peripheral Georgian and Victorian residential neighbourhoods.

The city centre is anchored by the main shopping precincts Church Street and Bold Street. Here you'll find both modern builds such as the Liverpool One mall and renovated century-old properties such as those in the bar- and boutique-packed Cavern Quarter.

Top attractions
Salthouse Quay and the Albert Dock lie southwest of the city centre and form the setting for chic bars and restaurants. You'll also find cultural attractions here, such as the modern art centre Tate Liverpool and the The Beatles Story, a monument to the Fab Four.

To the northeast lies Liverpool Cathedral – Britain's largest – and the venue for many cultural, musical and educational events. Its 100-metre tower offers panoramic views of the city.

Liverpool has more parks than Paris. Sefton Park and its glorious glass Victorian Palm House, a greenhouse showcasing plants from around the world, is a huge source of local pride.

The concierge recommends…

  • Boarding the Cavern Club's psychedelic Magical Mystery Tour bus. It departs Albert Dock to tour Liverpool sites made famous by Beatles songs, including Penny Lane and former children's home Strawberry Field.
  • Taking a ferry ‘cross the Mersey with Mersey Ferries to Birkenhead on the Wirral. It offers great views of Liverpool's waterfront, and you'll hear Gerry and The Pacemakers' iconic tune "Ferry across the Mersey" along the way.
  • Visiting the Merseyside Maritime Museum and International Slavery Museum to learn about the industries, ships and people on which the port city was built.
  • Catching a Liverpool or Everton football match. The city lives and breathes the game and is painted red or blue, respectively, every time there's a match.

Hotels in Liverpool

Liverpool is fairly compact, with most hotels located in and around the city centre's main shopping and theatre thoroughfares and the docks. You can walk or catch a bus to most attractions in 15 minutes.

Liverpool's lively, historic docklands area lies 10 minutes' walk southwest of the city centre and includes Salthouse Quay, Albert Dock and Queen's Dock. Here you'll find museums and art galleries such as Merseyside Maritime Museum and Tate Liverpool, music venue Echo Arena and day-into-night restaurants such as Gusto and Blue Bar.

The residential neighbourhood around Liverpool John Lennon Airport places you four minutes' drive from the black-and-white Tudor Speke Hall, a National Trust property. Knowsley – 30 minutes' drive from the centre – is close to Knowsley Safari Park, a zoological park where you can drive through open enclosures with monkeys and rhinos.

If you pick a hotel in Liverpool city centre itself, you'll be a few steps from the Royal Court Youth Theatre, Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse and Liverpool Empire Theatres.



Eating Out in Liverpool

The city's restaurant scene offers everything from Ethiopian cuisine to Spanish tapas. A plethora of real ale pubs and gastropubs do a brisk trade in pies, sausages and all manner of spuds (potatoes). The Albert Dock has a strong concentration of upscale eateries such as Gusto, Circo and PanAm.

Along Hope Street, you'll find some of the city's most impressive Georgian houses and lauded restaurants including 60 Hope Street and London Carriage Works. Nearby Pushka on Rodney Street is a local favourite for innovative British cuisine such as gin-cured salmon and slow-roasted belly pork.

Liverpool's hotels are starting to be noted for their in-house eateries and are often great places to try traditional Scouse fare and globally inspired dishes. Blakes at Hard Days Night Hotel and Hotel Indigo's Marco Pierre White rank among the best.

Liverpool is home to Europe's oldest Chinese community and Chinatown, located around Berry Street, is the place for cheap, tasty favourites such as sui mai dumplings and Peking duck.

The chef recommends...

  • Scouse: A home-style lamb or beef stew packed with potatoes, carrots, onions and spices. It's best enjoyed with thick buttered slices of wholegrain bread.
  • Sunday roast: Oven-roasted lamb, beef, chicken or pork, served with potatoes, vegetables and gravy. A classic of British cuisine, served at pubs all over Liverpool.
  • Curry: Liverpudlians love a curry, and Liverpool has some of the best Indian restaurants in the UK.

Shopping in Liverpool

Shopping in Liverpool isn't about malls and markets, but rather fashion flagships and small sidestreet nooks packed with art shops, fashion boutiques and record stores.

The open-air Liverpool One complex is home to big national chains, including the only Beauty Bazaar Harvey Nichols in England.

Church Street itself has enough to keep bargain-hunters lingering for hours: the Primark outlet here is one of the largest in the country. Topshop, Marks and Spencer and Forever 21 offer chic, affordable goodies.

Bold Street has a litany of small independent stores ranging from book and record stores to kitschy design boutiques. Utility is a great place for Liverpool-only gifts such as purple wheelie bin desk tidies and superlambananas – shelf-sized replicas of Japanese artist Taro Chiezo's controversial and now iconic sculpture.

Liverpool must-buys

  • Beatles memorabilia, available in souvenir shops everywhere.
  • A scarf, hat or t-shirt from one of Liverpool's beloved LFC or Everton football clubs.
  • A CD or poster from a local busker or band; live music is everywhere and local artists sell their merchandise wherever they play, be it in a bar or in the shopping precinct.

Culture & Nightlife in Liverpool

Pubs and bars abound, from century-old real ale watering holes to chic, sleek cocktail spots, as do live music hubs and EDM clubs where you can dance until dawn.

Theatres such as the Liverpool Empire, Liverpool Royal Court, and Playhouse and Everyman offer both home-grown and touring national plays and gigs.

The Cavern Quarter has plenty of themed music and cocktail bars – including the world-famous Cavern Club – while Albert Dock is known for its upscale restobars.

The streets radiating off Hardman Street are home to traditional pubs that have become student haunts. Check out Ye Cracke and The Pilgrim. In recent years the formerly industrial Baltic Triangle has emerged as a centre for creative venues, such as the bar, event and festival space Camp and Furnace.

Best Liverpool nightlife spots

  • Peter Kavanagh's, an old pub refitted in 1929 and a testimony to traditional Liverpool watering holes. It's known for its pub quiz, held every Thursday.
  • St Luke's Church, known locally as "the bombed-out church", is a downtown Anglican church built in 1811 and damaged during WWII. Now roofless and filled with vegetation, it's used as an occasional event venue and outdoor cinema.
  • Concert Square, a raucous downtown setting for institutional bars such as the alternative rock and britpop-centric Krazyhouse, Revolution vodka bar and long-running cocktail bar Modo.
  • FACTFoundation for Art and Creative Technology – offers a raft of interesting art exhibitions, workshops and mainstream and independent film screenings. You can also take a house beer or wine into theatres.

Visiting Liverpool with a Family

Liverpool's wealth of interactive exhibit-heavy museums, parks and entertainment attractions make it a great city for youngsters to explore. Most restaurants are child-friendly and offer kids' menus. Many shops are also family-focused, with play areas and other distractions for children.

The World Museum aims to astound, featuring dinosaur skeletons, Egyptian mummies and exhibits that explore Mayan civilisation. The onsite aquarium and planetarium also host daily events, such as a look at night sky constellations and how our knowledge of life on Earth steers the search for alien life.

Liverpool ONE open-air mall and lifestyle complex incorporates an impressive Lego store, Jungle Rumble and Odeon cinema. Regular outdoors events are also organised in Chavasse Park. During the summer you might find picnic boats – landed boats perfect for a picnic lunch – and swashbuckling "Captain Pool" games and craft activities led by a local theatre group.

The Albert Dock offers plenty to keep young and curious minds amused, including museum exhibits, family-friendly restaurants and the Big Wheel, a ferris wheel with panoramic views of the docks, River Mersey and city.

Child-friendly attractions in Liverpool

  • Liverpool's Route 66 drive-in cinema regularly features family-friendly films.
  • The Museum of Liverpool in the Albert Dock has a "Little Liverpool" section with workshops and singalong events to keep children under seven entertained.
  • Knowsley Safari Park, 30 minutes' drive northeast of Liverpool's city centre, is a chance to drive through open enclosures filled with giraffes and mischievous baboons.

Room clean and comfortable nights sleep
By HenryFred
Rang before hand to alter date after booking, receptionists quite abrupt and unhelpful. Changed it myself on Internet. Gentleman on reception was lovely when we arrived. The one in the morning was a [More] bit abrupt, maybe the one Who had answered the phone to me the previous week. But overall a lovely place very near to all the amenities. [Less]
Very Good Hotel But Noisy Air Con
By DSRD
We recently spent 2 nights at the hotel and overall we found it very good. However, our first night was a problem due to the noise from the hotel's air conditioning system. After complaining to [More] reception in person at midnight (the in room telephones weren't working) it was eventually switched off but we requested to be moved to another room the next day. The room switch was handled brilliantly by Emma, the duty manager, who offered a choice of rooms and personally showed us what was available. We spoke to her on a number of occasions during our stay and we were impressed at how helpful, polite and friendly she was, a real credit to the hotel. We will definitely stay here again when we next visit Chester. [Less]

2 night leisure break to see Chester and visit relatives. Hotel is ideally situated 5mins from the centre. Where there is plenty of eating and drinking venues The room was ok except that you could [More] hear everything going on in the adjacent rooms.
