Do you ever want to try something new but don't want to go out during the weekend? Or are you entirely booked for the next few weekends? There are numerous things to do in Liverpool throughout the week if you want to take a break from your usual weekend activities. Here are some of the city's top mid-week activities.
The Radio City Tower's observation deck is one of the few places in Liverpool with such a view. This 138-meter-tall tower, officially called St John's Beacon but is not often referred to as such, offers amazing 360-degree views. Radio City also transmits from here.
Liverpool Cathedral is the United Kingdom's largest religious edifice and the world's fifth-largest cathedral. It was constructed between 1904 and 1978 and is open to the public all year. The world's tallest Gothic arches, the largest organ in the United Kingdom, and a variety of stunning stained-glass windows can all be found here. Throughout the year, the cathedral holds art exhibitions and charity feasts, so check the website before arranging your visit.
Bold Street Shopping
Bold Street is one of the few spots in Liverpool that exemplifies the city's creative vitality. Locals and visitors alike have long believed this haven for small businesses to be one of the city's trendiest spots. If you're looking for one-of-a-kind antiques, used books, vinyl, or unusual homeware by local designers, Bold Street is the place to go. While you're out and about, don't forget to stop for a bite to eat at one of the many enticing cafés, taverns, and restaurants.
A visit to Liverpool's sea-trading past would be incomplete without a trip here, especially as it is fun for the entire family. To begin, there are model ships and full-size boats to explore, as well as eye-catching maritime artwork and posters, documentaries, and even a genuine Titanic survivor's lifejacket. The International Slavery Museum is located on the third level, while the National Border Force Museum is located in the basement.
The Museum of Liverpool will tell you all you need to know about Liverpool, from its unique geography to its rich history and vibrant culture. The museum, which is only a short distance from RIBA North, emphasises Liverpool's importance in relation to the rest of the United Kingdom, as well as the critical role the port has played throughout its history. Once inside, you'll be bombarded by ancient artefacts, legendary liver birds, sporting mementoes, and some (very) classic songs, among other things.
This underground basement started out as a jazz and skiffle bar in 1957 before becoming an important component of the Beatles' development. Before founding the Fab Four and playing over 300 gigs on its stage, Lennon and McCartney performed here. Before the theatre was rebuilt in the early 1980s, it hosted performances by The Hollies, The Rolling Stones, and The Kinks. Thanks to funding from Liverpool FC star Tommy Smith, the Cavern Club reopened in 1984 as a vibrant live music venue. Today, you'll either witness one of the club's resident artists, such as a terrific Beatles tribute, or an up-and-coming singer-songwriter.
