Visit Liverpool City
Bus travel in and around Liverpool is a green, convenient and cost-effective way to visit Liverpool city. The bus network is managed by Merseytravel, with two main city centre bus terminal – Liverpool ONE and Queen Square bus stations.
Shopping at Liverpool ONE
Liverpool shopping is world class, which is only fitting for a city that can shop 'til it drops. Liverpool ONE is one of Europe's leading retail and leisure destinations, set in the heart of Liverpool City Centre. It is home to over 160 stores, bars and restaurants, a 14-screen cinema, an indoor golf course and 5-acre Chavasse Park. Shoppers are spoilt for choice between gleaming new city centre shopping areas and boutique arcades.
Liverpool Waterfront and Mersey River Cruise
Liverpool Waterfront is a great place to visit with a whole host of things to do in a breathtaking and iconic setting. The iconic Liver Birds, Three Graces, cathedrals and other landmarks provide a stunning backdrop to the Mersey River. Why not hop aboard a Mersey Ferry for stunning views, fascinating history and unlimited fresh sea air. A 50 mins River Explorer Cruise takes in the best views along the Mersey riverside.
