Splash World

Situated just North of Liverpool in Southport, Splash World is a large indoor water park suitable for you to have fun with your kids irrespective of their ages. There is plenty to do including lazy rivers, flume rides, and play areas. Although this isn’t a day-long activity, it is sure to be very tiring, so remember your swimming suits!

Tate Liverpool

The Tate Liverpool put on events, exhibitions, and displays throughout the whole year that is suitable for all the family, as well as kids. Some of the games are free, while others are very cheap. From contemporary art and activity trails to hands-on creative educational workshops, you are bound to find exciting activities to do on your next city break in Liverpool.

The Beatles

Are you a fan of The Beatles? Liverpool is the perfect city to visit for a Beatles inspired break. The first stop has got to be the Beatles Story, located in the Albert Dock. This display follows the lives of the group and how they met and developed in Liverpool. It’s good to allow a few hours for a visit to this as there is a lot to see and do. For something still Beatles-themed but a little different, why not hop aboard the Magical Mystery Tour? Starting in the Albert Dock, the two-hour trip takes visitors to various Beatles landmarks around Liverpool.

Anfield Tours

Big football fan? Liverpool Football Club’s ground is open to the public for exciting tours and experiences that are a perfect way to spend a day or afternoon. There is a choice of three different trips, and Anfield Stadium offers cheap two for one deal on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and discounts for members.


Spaceport, situated at the ferry port in Wallasey is excellent for kids over the age of 5 who have an interest in outer space. There are several galleries and exhibitions which all have interactive, audio-visual experiences. Tickets range from 5.50-9 to Spaceport alone, but if you are looking to make a day of it, they also offer great packages that combine the River Explorer Cruise and U-boat story too.

The Wheel of Liverpool

Viewing is not an exception when it comes to activities. Liverpool is a pleasant city, so what genuine way to see it than from above? Located just outside the Echo Arena, the Liverpool’s Big Wheel is sixty meters high. The forty-two containers allow up to eight people in each to have a glimpse at the city’s iconic monuments such as the World Heritage Site and River Mersey waterfront. Rates vary from 1- 7, they also offer family tickets as well, and infants can go for free.

The staff at your hotel will more than likely be able to assist you with any booking, planning or transport to ensure you get the most fun out of the various activities. So make sure you ask for any information you may need while on your Liverpool break.
