A short train ride from Southport is the city of Liverpool. The city has a rich heritage and a vibrant cultural scene, with music on every corner and theatres showcasing local, national and international talent every day.

Liverpool's maritime history can be seen and experienced on the iconic waterfront, where visitors can explore the Royal Albert Dock and Pier Head. Take the ferry across the Mersey and take in the views from onboard. 

The city is a melting pot of flavours when it comes to food and drink, head to Bold Street for cuisines from across the world. Castle Street has a cosmopolitan feel - there's no better place to dine alfresco when the sun is out. And don't forget the Georgian Quarter, the home of the city's two cathedrals and the Philharmonic Hall. 

When it comes to shopping, visitors are spoilt for choice with more than 160 stores in Liverpool ONE alone and more in the city centre at MetQuarter. 

When the sun goes down, it's time to party and Liverpool knows how to do it.
