Whether you are visiting Liverpool for a weekend getaway or are a city local, there are a vast number of different places to take your family on a day out. Some of the following suggestions may be familiar while others may not, so without further ado here is our small collection of recommendations.
If you are fortunate enough to have agreeable weather in Liverpool during your visit, then one option is to take in the Liverpool skyline aboard a Mersey Ferry. A city rich in history, particularly maritime and musical, tours are available that educate and amuse visitors with stories of famous passengers and smugglers.
Open all year apart from New Year’s Day, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, a family ticket is very reasonably priced for a relaxing and interesting journey.
Attracting thousands of visitors each year, yet still sliding under the radar of many, Croxteth Hall offers enjoyable surroundings to meander through with your family. With 500 acres to explore and a real working farm on the premises, children can be kept amused while the adults enjoy the local nature reserve onsite.
Containing over 60 acres of splendidly crafted gardens and countryside, a family day out experience at Ness Gardens provides a relaxing and enjoyable trip for all of the family. Particularly friendly on your wallet, Ness Gardens provides free parking to help bring the price of a family outing down, with children under 5 going free and a family day ticket being low-priced.
For adults there is a kitchen café to help recharge batteries with a warm beverage, or if the weather is pleasant then a picnic is also a smart option. With rescue chickens, play areas and extra activities put on during school holidays, it caters to the needs of most families.
If you are looking for an affordable and relaxing option, and one which is also dog friendly, then Ness Gardens might be the choice for you.
World Museum Liverpool
An attraction for a family with an inquisitive side, the World Museum in Liverpool is a great place for learning and exploration.
Complete with an aquarium, kids and adults alike can study the fish at close range while also reading and learning interesting facts about them. There is also a planetarium for studying the stars, along with a theatre and bug house, ensuring that there is a diverse selection for all.
There are multiple shops and cafes at the museum allowing you to rest after a busy day, and if the weather permits there is a picnic area opposite St John’s Gardens, allowing you to make the most of the sunshine.
Plenty More To Do
Liverpool’s reputation as a great place to visit is certainly well-deserved, and with these four suggestions being the tip of the iceberg for what is available, there is something to do in Liverpool for every family.
