Things To Do At Christmas In Liverpool

Over the past few years, we have visited Liverpool quite a few times. Partly because there is so much to do there and it's such a beautiful city, but mostly because my husband is a mega Liverpool football fan and likes to visit the city of the team he loves as much as possible.

Liverpool at Christmas is a whole new ball game though. It seems like Liverpool comes alive at Christmas time. I mean, I've never seen so many lights and sparkle - it's so festive, so pretty and just shines with glamour. 

If you are sat wondering if Liverpool is a place to visit this Christmas, then the answer is definitely, yes! And here are just a couple of the places you should visit...

Liverpool ONE
The main draw of Liverpool is the fabulous Liverpool ONE, right in the heart of the city. It's a place to shop till you drop - literally, as if you did go around the whole place you probably would need to drop. It's massive! There is also a whole host of restaurants and bars in Liverpool ONE so you can chill and stop for a bite, or cocktail, whenever the mood takes. 

Chavasse Park
Next to Liverpool ONE is Chavasse Park, which the kids love as it's in the city centre and is thoroughly looked after, and at Christmas it comes alive. This festive period Chavasse Park has the Polaris experience which is a giant light spectacular, telling the story of Liverpool’s culture through a series of animations. 

Albert Dock
This year the Albert Dock is having a Christmas Extravaganza with tinkling lights, a sparkling ice sculpture trail, and a pop-up Christmas tree shop. Albert Dock is also home to museums galore so you can really get a feel for the city and it's past, as well as Mattel Play which is super fun for the kids. It's also just the most stunning place to be at night. Watching the Freijwheel Wheel of Liverpool shines it's lights as it spins over the River Mersey. 

The Beatles. 
Obviously you cannot go to Liverpool without seeing the sights based about The Beatles. There are statues on the docks which are always popular, then you can walk along to find Matthew Street which is home to The Cavern Club, where The Beatles were founded.
