Take a spin on the Wheel of Liverpool, a 60m-tall Ferris wheel that dominates the area around Keel Wharf, giving you panoramic views of famous city landmarks and the Mersey waterfront. On a clear day you can see as far as the Welsh mountains. For a treat, why not splash out on a swish VIP capsule, complete with a glass bottom, champagne fridge and leather seats?
John Lennon and Paul McCartney are two of Liverpool's most beloved sons, and their childhood homes, Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road, are now owned by the National Trust. Guided tours illuminate the musicians' formative years, and explain how four lads from Liverpool conquered the world. If you try an apple pie at Speke Hall, 13 miles from the hotel, chances are the fruit came from Mendips' garden.
Don't Go Home Without
Local clubs Liverpool FC and Everton FC enjoy one of football's most enduring and eventful rivalries, and at weekends the city is awash in red and blue scarves. The atmosphere at the Kop end during home games is especially lively. Anfield and Goodison Park are both around 15 minutes' drive from the hotel.
Head across the Mersey to the Spaceport at Seacombe, half an hour's drive from the hotel. You can explore the solar system through hands-on exhibits, catch shows in the planetarium, and fly through space on a simulator ride. Nearby at the U-boat Story, peer into a German submarine and imagine life under water during World War II.
