Unusual things to do in Liverpool and transport

by virtuall_travelerr

Hi!

I will spend some time in Liverpool, and don't want to be a 'tourist'. I have already searched the usual and touristy things to check out in the city, but would like to know about little hidden treasures, or Simply: what you guys- locals- would suggest to do, as something you think I should do. I know interests vary, but whatever you suggest, and I will pick what grabs my attention.
and what you reccommend for 'best' place to have a drink, or lunch/dinner, etc..

Also: for like 4 or 5 days in the city, what is the best deal for trasnport. and where to get this pass or tickets? are they for buses? what else is used there for transportation?

Thank you!
VT
p.s: we are recently married and we want to spend some nice (and romantic) time and unwind!

Not sure how this rates on the "romance" scale - pretty low I would guess - but as far as hidden treasures go you can't get much more hidden than the Williamson Tunnels - well worth a visit if you are that way inclined.

Or how about a cruise along the Manchester Ship Canal. Mersey Ferries run these on a fairly regular basis. Takes six hours from Liverpool Pier Head to Salford Quays where you can then explore the shopping outlet, Lowry Centre and/or Imperial War Museum North before being bused back to Liverpool.

Have fun whatever you end up doing.

I'm 50, so when I think of Liverpool, I think of the Cavern Club and the Beatles. From what I've read, Liverpool is an industrial city, and probably a dying one, nowadays. It sounds about as romantic as Newark! I like to avoid tourist traps myself, so let me know how you make out.

Take a train out to Southport or West Kirby - these are nice pleasant seaside towns ( there is a lot here on VT about them) - you could have a romantic walk along the promenades there.

Cool things to try: The Willamson Tunnels www.williamsontunnels.com

Romantic: a stroll along Crosby Beach looking at Anthony Gormely's "Another Place".

Transport: the buses, trains and ferry are grouped together under the banner of Merseytravel try their website www.merseytravel.co.uk .

Suggest you have a look at the Liverpool One development Footool, before you say Liverpool is a dying Industrial City. Also Liverpool has the biggest collection of neoclassical buildings and museums outside of London, including our own branch of the Tate.

hhmmmm I didn't know that, of course. I've been to England 3 times, but only once did I stray from London.

Travel Tips for Liverpool

Walk thru the city centre....

by khalloud

Walk thru the city centre. Pierside (on the River Mersey) there is a riverside walk visitors can take. It takes you thru the essentials of the city. Grab a ferry if you can. Why? you'll see some amazing perspectives of Liverpool's imposing architecture. That Scouser accent

Albert Dock

by sandysmith

Half hour boat trips can be taken around the dock complex and a "Duck Tour" involves a tour on land to the main sights of Liverpool ending with a "splashdown" in the Dock.....a bit pricey at £8 though for just under an hour I think. Its easy enough to walk around and explore, but if you are pushed for time and want to see as much as possible then I guess its worth while. A stroll around the Docks affords the chance for yet more reflections for me:-))
For more reflections of the Docks take a look at the travelogue.

Super-lamb-banana???

by nylo

the superlambanana is a piece of art which has now become one of Liverpools icons! Many minitures were made for the European Capital 80 festivites, painted and decorated then placed all around Liverpool! I love em :)

Ness Gardens - the Laburnum...

by sandysmith

Ness Gardens - the Laburnum Arch (end of May/June) is a well known stunning feature of these beautiful gardens. First created by the Liverpool cotton merchant Arthur Kilpin Bulley in 1898, part of which he opened to local residents, which laid the foundations of one of the major botanic gardens in the United Kingdom
