Of course, it wouldn’t be Liverpool if The Beatles weren’t mentioned at some point. The Beatles Story is the world’s largest exhibition, situated in Royal Albert Docks and walks you through the story of the Fab Four from beginning to end. Rooms have been replicated to help tell the story, for example, Abbey Road Studios and The Cavern.
The Liverpool Beatles Museum is owned by Pete Best, the original drummer, and has over 500 original rare and authentic artefacts on display. These include instruments, clothing, bits of film and personal letters. There is a strong focus on pre-fame and feels more intimate due to the Best family’s connection from the very start of the phenomenal journey.
You can combine the Beatles trip with a Liverpool City Sights Tour, using hop-on and off buses. The Blue Route shows landmarks such as Penny Lane, Strawberry Field, and both Lennon and McCartney’s childhood homes. The Red Route will take you to the Royal Albert Docks, the famous Cavern Club and Liverpool Cathedral. Simply jump off at whichever venue takes your interest and back on ready for the next one!
Liverpool’s Castle Street certainly deserves a mention too. The city’s town hall is at the start of this road, which is well worth a tour inside. The town hall houses the famous balcony from which The Beatles waved to 20,000 fans in 1964 ahead of their premiere of A Hard Days’ Night.
If you wish to share a fine-dining experience, reserve a table at Panoramic 34 one of the UK’s highest fine-dining restaurants. Enjoy pre-meal cocktails while marvelling at the stunning Liverpool skyline and beyond, perfect romance as the sun descends.
For afternoon tea with a twist, visit the quirky and unique Baltic Social. Their Punk Afternoon Tea is fast becoming legendary. You can choose a meat option but they also cater to a vegetarian and vegan menu too. Your cocktail, mocktail, (or lager!), is served in a teapot and your meal may consist of mini slider burgers, sausage rolls, mac and cheese balls, scotch eggs, chicken wings and brownies, cookies, muffins, shortbreads, scones and more. The menu will change but you are still guaranteed the best AT ever!
You can’t mooch around Liverpool without stopping for a good serving of the famous local dish, Scouse. Ma Egertons does a mouth-watering version, and on a Sunday, it’s served with pickled cabbage in a large Yorkshire Pudding! This is not to be missed!
Liverpool will always give that little bit more when it comes to nightlife too. The Georgian Quarter is host to some of the best bars and eateries in the city, along with Concert Square to get your cocktail fix, your sports fix or dancing into the small hours. Liverpool Gin Distillery and Craft Beer Experience hold great taster sessions and, of course, we can’t forget the legendary Cavern Club – the birthplace of The Beatles. With plenty of live bands (Covid-permitting), this is a great venue for music lovers.
The Stanley Street Quarter, aka Liverpool Gay Village, is a great place to meet fellow LGBT people on the gay dating scene. With countless bars and a bustling nightlife, from drag shows to tributes, this is the place to be. The Masquerade is one of the friendliest places, hosting karaoke, themed evenings and great reviews after a refurbishment.
Mersey Ferries run trips along the River Mersey and they also offer an alternative – Manchester Ship Canal Cruises. Why not feel the wind in your hair and cosy up together whilst cruising along and seeing the sights?
If you like being near the water, then just outside of Liverpool you have Formby. There is a Red Squirrel Reserve where you are quite likely to meet one of them during your woodland walk. There are a couple of picnic areas along the route and you can head to the beautiful sand dunes and beach too.
Crosby beach is another stunning beach, with a permanent sculpture set called ‘Another Place’ by Antony Gormley. This consists of 100 cast-iron life-size sculptures, of the artist’s own body, dispersed over three kilometres of the coast looking out to sea. The walk along the beach encapsulates panoramic views of the Wirral and North Wales.
Back inland, Liverpool One is one of the top places to shop in the UK. Home to over 170 shops, restaurants and bars, you’ll want for nothing, with shops to suit every budget. You could make a date last a full day and into the evening here by shopping, grabbing a quick bite together and paying a visit to the cinema.
If you both love animals and would enjoy a trip out of the city, consider a Chester Zoo date. With over 35,000 animals and beautiful gardens to explore, it will be a date to remember. If you would prefer a ‘drive-through’ experience, visit Knowsley Safari Park. Just a stone’s throw away from the city, you can get a little more up close and personal with some of the primate residents from your car window.
The City of Liverpool has so much more to offer than could ever be mentioned here. You can visit Crosby Beach, join a ghost tour, or even relax and enjoy a spa day. At least your second date, and more, will be covered!
