Do you ever feel like you don't want to go out on the weekends and want to try something new? Or perhaps you're completely booked for the next several weekends? If you want a break from your normal weekend activities, there are many things to do in Liverpool during the week. Here are some of the best mid-week activities in the city.
The observation deck of Radio City Tower is one of the few sites in Liverpool with a view like it has. This 138-meter-tall tower, officially called St John's Beacon but rarely referred to as such, offers spectacular 360-degree views. Radio City also transmits from here.
Liverpool Cathedral is the largest ecclesiastical structure in the United Kingdom and the world's fifth-largest cathedral. It was built between 1904 and 1978 and is currently available to the public all year. The world's highest Gothic arches, the UK's largest organ, and an assortment of beautiful stained-glass windows can all be found here. The cathedral hosts art exhibitions and charity banquets throughout the year, so check the website before planning your visit.
Shopping on Bold Street
Bold Street is one of the few places in Liverpool that embodies the city's artistic energy. Locals and visitors alike have long considered this refuge of small enterprises one of the city's trendiest locations. Bold Street is the place to go if you're looking for one-of-a-kind antique things, secondhand books, vinyl, or unique homeware by local designers. While you're browsing, don't forget to refuel at one of the numerous appealing cafés, pubs, and restaurants.
A visit to this homage to Liverpool's sea-trading past would be incomplete without a stop here, especially because it's entertaining for the whole family. To begin, there are a variety of model ships and full-size boats to explore, as well as eye-catching marine artwork and posters, videos, and even a genuine Titanic survivor's lifejacket. On the third floor, you'll discover the International Slavery Museum, and in the basement, you'll find the National Border Force Museum.
The Museum of Liverpool will teach you all you need to know about Liverpool, from its distinctive topography to its rich history and lively culture. The museum, which is only a short distance from RIBA North, highlights Liverpool's importance in connection to the rest of the UK and the crucial role the port has played throughout its history. Once you're inside, you'll be inundated by archaeological artefacts, mythological liver birds, athletic memorabilia, and some (very) classic melodies, among other things.
This underground basement began as a jazz and skiffle bar in 1957 before playing a pivotal part in the formation of the Beatles. Lennon and McCartney played here before creating the Fab Four and performing over 300 shows on its stage. Before the theatre was raised in the early 1980s, other prominent artists such as The Hollies, Rolling Stones, and Kinks performed there. The Cavern Club reopened in 1984 as a dynamic live music venue thanks to financing from Liverpool FC player Tommy Smith. If you come today, you'll either see one of the club's resident performers, such as a fantastic Beatles homage, or an up-and-coming singer-songwriter.
