Liverpool has many thing to do and see, but here our top recommendations…
The Beatles and The Cavern
All apartments are within walking distance of Mathew Street and The Cavern Club. Many people are drawn to Liverpool by the lure of its musical history, especially during the August Bank Holiday each year when the Mathew Street Beatles Festival attracts over 500,000 people. Mathew Street has its own website dedicated to its history.
You can also find out about the regular Magical Mystery Tours around Liverpool, which gives you a full insight into the history and whereabouts of The Beatles throughout their career whilst also taking you to their remaining childhood homes across Liverpool. Each tour finishes at The Cavern itself where you can explore where the Mersey Beat all began.
Liverpool One is one of the largest undercover shopping areas in Europe and is definitely worth a visit. A vast variety of shops are available as well as some fantastic bars and restaurants located around the Chavasse Park area on the top level.
The Park area provides seasonal attractions such as a Beach area and Bar (tonnes of sand are shipped in to create a fantastic area for kids to enjoy), as well as rides and stalls.
Then during the Winter, a Winter Wonderland is created alongside the Polar Bar where you can enjoy Mulled wine whilst watching the children visit Father Christmas in his Winter Wonderland.
Both apartment sites are within easy walking distance from local supermarkets and all the great shopping areas around Liverpool City Centre. Closest by being Bold Street, which houses a selection of independent local business as well as corporate giants such as Warehouse, Karen Millen, Monsoon, Waterstones and very many more.
Other great shopping areas include St Johns Precinct (for all those bargain hunters amongst you).
Both sites are located within the Cultural Quarter of Liverpool City Centre and as the names suggest, plenty of culture is therefore on your doorstep with the majority of the Theatres being located close by.
The Empire has many touring shows for example Cats, Madame Butterfly and many more and their web site is certainly worth a look at.
Liverpool is famous for its two great football teams with Liverpool Football Club at Anfield and Everton Football Club at Goodison Park. Both stadiums are situated around Stanley Park which is located 2 miles outside the city centre.
Both apartments are located within walking distance of the main station from which a train to Sandhills Station on the Southport Line takes you to the Soccer Bus, which then takes you directly to the stadium.
The Aintree Grand National
The central location of Liverpool Holiday Flats self catering apartments enables our customers easy access to Liverpool’s public transport links.
From these links journeys to the Grand National at Aintree Race Course are quick and easy to undertake. Aintree is situated 5 miles out of the city centre however both buses and trains have direct links from the city centre to the racecourse.
Both Pilgrim Street Apartments and Catharine Street House are situated very close to Liverpool’s magnificent Cathedrals which are located at either end of Hope Street.
The Anglican cathedral is Sir Giles Gilbert Scotts masterpiece built on St. James Mount and is visible from miles and miles around. It is architecturally amazing and extremely beautiful, and well worth a visit.
At the other end of Hope Street is the majestic site of Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral, (affectionately known in Liverpool as Paddys Wig-Wam due to the shape).
Designed by Sir Frederick Gibberd, its modern design is perhaps in direct contrast to the Anglican Cathedrals gothic architecture however completely beautiful in its own right.
