As the year comes to an end, it’s always a good time to reflect on what you’ve done in the year that’s passed, and plan the things you want to do in the next year. I have a few plans and ideas that I want to build on, but one of the things I am really keen to do in 2019 is to have a trip over to Liverpool with the children.
We have visited Liverpool a couple of times over the last couple of years, but only to go to very specific things like a theatre show, and despite its proximity, we haven’t actually had any real time there and it’s been many, many years since I visited the city properly. There’s a lot to see and do in Liverpool and I know that in the past when I’ve been for the football or theatre I’ve not even scratched the surface of the city and I’m always seeing recommendations of places to visit popping up on Facebook that are in and around Liverpool. It seems sensible that we might plan a couple of days there to explore properly in the coming year.
Like any city, there’s so much to see and do in Liverpool, and when we go I am sure we will take the children to the Royal Albert Dock, pay a visit to the stunning Cathedral or head a little out of the city to visit the Spaceport – there’s really so much to do. I am particularly keen to take the children to the World Museum as I’ve heard such fantastic things about it and it sounds like a great place for us to visit, and I also would quite like to re-visit the Tate art gallery – somewhere I am sure I went with my Dad when I was a child and somewhere I think the children would enjoy.
Liverpool is such a vibrant city with so many things on offer and I am going to spend a bit of time in January having a proper read of the online travel guides and checking out the recommended places from friends. I have heard great things about the restaurants in Liverpool ONE and I am sure that it will act as a good area for us to explore – the children are always keen to know where they’re going to be eating lunch!
Liverpool ONE is on the waterfront and looks to be really accessible, with plenty of parking and only 15 minutes from Liverpool Lime Street. I like the idea of the nature trail around Chavasse Park and think that would be an ideal way to break up the visits to the museum and art galleries
Whilst Liverpool isn’t too far for us to drive, the children do enjoy travelling on the train and having had a quick look online, I think we can book tickets pretty cheaply for the five of us to go – now all we need to do is choose a date!
