Bucket list ideas are still being jotted down for what I would like to achieve this year, with the main focus being on travel. The UK has so much to offer in terms of scenery, culture and family fun, so it would be nice to spend time soaking up new experiences.
It seems easiest to start local first, simply for ease of travelling at the weekends and living in the North West gives me so much scope on where we can explore!
Liverpool has been on my list for a while now, it really is everything you expect from a vibrant, bustling city and more. I only ever travel over to Liverpool for the airport, but am always surprised by how easy it is to reach, therefore there are no excuses to not visit anymore.
The Liverpool Waterfront is a must visit – with an array of museums such as the Tate Liverpool and Merseyside Maritime Museum all within walking distance of each other, the recently opened Museum of Liverpool complements the cultural collection perfectly.
The Liverpool One shopping and leisure complex is just a short walk from the waterfront and with so many fantastic restaurants on hand, is the perfect place to dine when you have taken in the sights and activities at the museums. You really are spoilt for choice, whether you are looking for a celebratory meal out or a quick bite to eat, there really is something for every taste with restaurants ranging from Nando’s, to Wagamama, to Jamie’s Italian. A stroll around the shops afterwards is the perfect way to end a memorable day.
For me, if I was to visit Liverpool for the weekend, I would certainly make sure to spend time on Crosby beach for a wonderful chill out. Weather permitting of course, but it would be great to finally see the Anthony Gormley art installation which features 100 life size, cast iron figures which are a permanent fixture. An absolute must see!
