3 family attractions you won’t want to miss in Liverpool

* Sponsored post

Liverpool’s a great place for a family day trip and if you’re planning a visit to this city on the Mersey, you can rest assured there’s plenty to keep you and your brood busy. 

I've only been twice and both times without hubs and Ethan in tow, but I really enjoyed my visits and saw that there's lots to do, so would love to go back as a family.

So that you don’t miss the highlights, here are three top attractions that Liverpool has to offer that you’ll want to add to your itinerary:

1. Liverpool ONE
Emerging as one of the most popular retail destinations in Europe, Liverpool ONE can be an ideal base for family days out. As well as a host of shops, it’s home to numerous child-friendly eateries and an Odeon cinema that runs a special kids’ club on Saturday and Sunday mornings. 

It also contains Jungle Rumble Adventure Golf, which is an 18-hole indoor crazy golf course that you can enjoy whatever the weather. You can also take advantage of a free buggy loan service if you visit the Q Park office with your car parking ticket. With so many different things to do, and much of it indoors, this is undoubtedly one of the city’s top attractions come rain or shine.

2. The Albert Dock
The iconic Albert Dock, which dates back to the 1840s and wears its industrial past with pride, is a major draw for tourists from around the UK and further afield. Its impressive buildings contain a mixture of popular galleries, museums and restaurants - all offering stunning views of the World Heritage Site waterfront. 

Highlights include the Tate Liverpool, the Beatles Story (complete with interactive children’s discovery zone) and the Merseyside Maritime Museum. It’s also well worth visiting the new Mattel Play! Liverpool, which opened earlier this year. Based on popular TV characters like Bob the Builder and Thomas & Friends, it’s an adventure play attraction spanning three differently themed zones.  

On a sunny day, the docks are really stunning to take in and the city just has a great vibe.

3. Mersey Ferries
No trip to Liverpool is complete until you’ve enjoyed views of the whole of the city’s waterfront on a boat ride across the Mersey. Each year, more than 600,000 people climb aboard Mersey Ferries to get the best vistas of the impressive skyline. If it’s a sunny day, you can enjoy the experience on deck with the wind in your hair, and if the weather’s not so nice you can keep warm under cover while still taking in the sights and sounds. The Daily River Explorer Cruise operates all year and runs between Pier Head in Liverpool and Woodside and Seacombe on the Wirral. The total journey lasts just under an hour, and you have the option of breaking your journey up and re-starting it at any terminal.  

With attractions like these on offer, it’s no surprise that Liverpool’s such a popular choice for families looking for an action-packed adventure.

Time to plan in a visit...
