5 Places to Visit in Liverpool


It is Friday and we are so very close to the weekend.  What better way to celebrate a couple of days off than jetting to a new destination.  One of the perks for choosing the expat lifestyle for my family was being able to travel frequently, even within the UK.  There are so many amazing destinations within our grasp from Bath, England that we have not yet explored.  Epic ApartHotel, my sponsor for August, brings to you a special guest post on the top five places you should see when visiting in Liverpool.

Liverpool has bags of maritime heritage and has plenty of historical points of interest.  As it was once one of the biggest ports in the UK, bringing in exciting treasures from around the world. Liverpool was awarded Capital of Culture back in 2008. The city has enjoyed a vast amount of regeneration projects in the UK, which has given the city centre a glamorous make over.

Liverpool ONE

The £1BN scheme has really propelled Liverpool into the top five shopping locations in the UK. Liverpool ONE also houses a state of the art cinema, many top restaurants and a grassy park area that is perfect for chilling out in the summer months.

San Carlo

San Carlo is one of Liverpool’s best Italian restaurants serving an extensive list of traditional cuisine in an open and airy stylish restaurant. Separate to the restaurant is a sleek bar and lounge area which is inviting for you to kick back and enjoy the authentic Italian waiters and buzzing atmosphere.

San Carlo Liverpool is not a theme restaurant but a highly lavish exclusive Italian venue for people who appreciate fine food, good service, luxurious and comfortable surroundings and indeed value for money.  If you enjoy Italian food you must experience San Carlo. 

The Bluecoat

The Bluecoat in Liverpool started out life as a school but has been radically transformed into a buzzing creative retreat for all of those creative people in and around the city. At the Bluecoat you can treat yourself to some fabulous food, visit the plenty of quirky independent shops and also some varied music and art events to suit all. 

Panoramic 34

Liverpool truly is a fabulous city and has some fantastic places to eat and drink.  At the Panoramic 34 you can view the entire cities goings on from the 34th floor. 

The Panoramic is one of Liverpool’s most striking buildings and is one of the tallest skyscrapers in the sky line.
