Planning Your Liverpool Visit

Getting Around

With Liverpool John Lennon Airport on the edge of the city, it’s easy to have a flying visit. But once you’re there, the city has plenty of public transport, whether it is by road, rail or river. For any attractions along the waterfront, hop onto a Mersey Ferries service for something different.

Where should you stay in Liverpool?

The city is brimming with hotels, apartments, hostels, and B&Bs. There’s plenty to choose from - whatever your price range - and all with that famous Scouse welcome. For somewhere with a view, why not stay in rooms overlooking The Albert Dock, close to chic restaurants and bars. No matter where you end up, you’ll be able to travel easily to all of the city’s must-see sights.

Liverpool Free 2-Hour Walking Tour Reviewed by Ellen, 09/06/2016

Excellent, enjoyable and most informative

The Beatles Story is excellent and we all thoroughly enjoyed it and found it most informative. The exhibits are really interesting, not only concerning the Beatles, but the whole Merseyside, and indeed national music scene at that time. The only very slight criticism I would make is that the background music is too loud and makes it too difficult to hear the excellent audio guide provided. Other than that it is an excellent attraction.
