The Yellow Submarine

Saturday 23 October 2021

We can’t recall the last time we visited the Merseyside city of Liverpool, but given that in 2019 it was ranked fifth on the list of the most visited UK cities, we thought it was time to find out what we have been missing!

Our train takes us north via the West Coast Main Line, through the railway hub of Crewe to Liverpool Lime Street station. We will arrive at lunchtime for a break of around four hours. Here you will find countless attractions within walking distance.

Take in Liverpool Cathedral, the World Museum, and the Walker Art Gallery. All are close by and free to visit. Alternatively, while away a few hours browsing the endless shops and catching your breath in one of the many bars, cafes and restaurants.

You could also head to Liverpool Waterfront and experience The Royal Albert Dock. Uncover objects from the Titanic, find out about life at sea and learn about the port of Liverpool at Merseyside Maritime Museum. The International Slavery Museum tells the untold stories of enslaved people and historical and contemporary slavery. Again, these attractions are free to visit.

At the award-winning The Beatles Story, the world’s largest permanent exhibition purely devoted to the lives and times of The Beatles, visitors can find everything they need to know about four lads from Liverpool who shook the world. Please note this is not a free attraction.

OPTION – River Explorer Cruise
See Liverpool’s most iconic sights aboard the world-famous Mersey Ferry. The fifty minute River Explorer Cruise takes in the best views along the riverside. Guided by expert commentary throughout the trip, the River Explorer Cruise offers stunning views of Liverpool’s skyline. As you relax and take in the views you will be captivated as the rich and fascinating history of the UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront unfolds before you.
