As a ‘City Girl’ living in North Wales and being literally a thirty second walk from the beach looking out to the Irish Sea, you can imagine my lifestyle is slightly different. Therefore, what feels like every two months, I make an escape to the city of Liverpool.
My first ever trip to Liverpool was during university when I visited a large art exhibition on the Albert Dock. Now I make a regular-ish appearance for multiple blogging events, but have found a few hidden gems along the way that I thoroughly enjoy and highly recommend.
I have chosen my top two places to visit in Liverpool that I have loved in the past and would highly recommend to you all. Although accommodation in the city centre can be on the higher end of the spectrum when it involves money, you still have access to quality hotels such as Travelodge.
Therefore you can still enjoy a night or weekend retreat away to the city with family, friends or even alone, without the fear of it breaking the piggy bank. So whether you’re looking for a new city to visit, place to eat and drink if you’re local, or a renowned place to explore, either of these is for you.
This was the first place I attended the moment I first stepped foot off the coach during my first visit to Liverpool. The Albert Dock is a strangely tranquil place to me, even if it is the city.
With party boats to hire, classy wine bars to drink at and beautiful places to eat, there’s quite a bit to do and see. During the day you can walk the docks and visit the art exhibitions that are on display, but come the evening the place is transformed; a casual and relaxed nightlife with twinkly lights wrapping the trees as you walk along the docks. It’s a great place to hang with friends and have a few too many vinos.
Etsu Japanese Restaurant.
A friend took me here once and introduced me to what has to be the best sushi I have ever tasted. If you’re looking for a place to eat in the city that has a relative good price tag, but quality food and service, Etsu is a must. Located a short five minute walk from the Albert Dock, its destination is ideal. I highly recommend the Soft Shell Crab Tempura as a starter, followed by the Shittaki Maki Sushi and Nigiri Set.
