WHAT TO DO IN LIVERPOOL


Since my time at university in Liverpool is coming to an end, I thought I would write a blog post on some of my favourite spots in Liverpool, in case anyone is visiting the city.

SEFTON PARK PALM HOUSE

Sefton park in general is nice on a sunny day! Its a huge park and I often like to wander around in the warmer months. The palm house is beautiful, its a huge greenhouse that often has events on inside, but its really nice just to have a quick look inside.



I recently found out that there are weekly meditation sessions inside the Palm House and so I am now waiting for an opportunity to go because I can't think of a nicer place to meditate.

BOLD STREET


 Bold Street is a street in Liverpool that is made up of mostly independent shops and restaurants, there are some really nice homeware and boutique stores, as well as lots of lovely coffee shops. The whole street is fully of character and is always busy. I haven't tried nearly enough spots on Bold Street but I thought I would just talk about 2 of my favourites.

MOWGLI

Mowgli is an Indian street food restaurant, the food is served like tapas, so you get quite a few different dishes. This is great for getting to try lots of different dishes, especially if there is a big group of you and you can get lots of bits to share.

Pre-veggie, the gunpowder chicken was my absolute favourite! But they cater to veggie and vegan requirements so anyone can enjoy their delicious food. I rarely go out for Indian food and so this is my favourite place to go when we do.

AMERICAN PIZZA SLICE

I don't know why this is such a good pizza spot, its got a very casual vibe, and you can get just a slice of pizza, or a whole one. I often go with my boyfriend and so we share a pizza. They provide a cheese sauce when you get a pizza and its such a weird idea but OMG it's so good! The last time I went they were also giving away free tomato sauces so you could essentially make your own pizza, which I thought was really lovely.


THE NAKED LUNCH CAFE


The Naked Lunch Cafe is my favourite place to go for breakfast, brunch or even just for a coffee and a catch up. They do the best breakfasts, catering for veggies and vegans as well as meat eaters, You can get a full english or smaller bits.

They do really nice lunches with lots of healthy options which is why I really like going. Its also a really nice place to go during the day time and do a bit of work, and the hot chocolate is honestly one of the best hot chocolates I've ever had.

It's right in the middle of Smithdown Road which is where most students tend to live, so its really easy to walk to. They also hold small events in the evenings and its just a really nice place to hang out.

BALTIC MARKET

The Baltic Market is a large food hall full of stalls from independent food restaurants all in the same place. There is a really lovely relaxed atmosphere with long tables in the middle of the room. It's really great because you can go with a group of friends and all end up eating different food but still be together. A group of friends and I actually won a Harry Potter quiz, and one of the prices was a £100 voucher to spend at the Baltic Market.


There is a pizza furnace inside which serves the best pizza according to my boyfriend. There is also a stand that serves halloumi fries, which in my opinion are one of the best things you can eat! Its such a nice place to go, in the day time or in the evening, there is a bar which serves lots of gorgeous cocktails and there is often bands and live music in the evenings.


Some of the stalls are permanent and some of them change quite often. The mightnight delivery is a permenant stand there and they serve all sorts of deserts which are amazing! Just a side note, as the name suggests, the midnight delivery do a delivery service of their desserts in some areas of liverpool, it is well worth doing if you are having a girls night in or a sleepover.

The Baltic Market has an instagram page which is well worth having a look at, you'll be on the way here in no time!

GHETTO GOLF

Ghetto golf is right next door to the Baltic Market, as the name suggests its a crazy golf course, but with the craziest decorations you could think of. It's in a huge warehouse and they have filled up the whole place with as many things as you can imagine.

It's over 18's only and there is a bar too which makes the golf harder, but a lot more fun! It's definitley best to go at an off peak time as it can be very busy, and if there is a big group then you can end up waiting ages at each hole.


ALBERT DOCKS

The docks are somewhere that you have to come and have a look at if you are visiting Liverpool. I'm ashamed to say that in my 3 years here I haven't taken the ferry across the Mersey (YET), but I have been on the Liverpool Wheel, which is something I really wanted to do!



You get a great view of the docks and the city and its quite fun to see it all from up high. Unfortunely we went on a very grey day, but it was still interesting to see it. And we could also see the old Cathedral (which is in the background of the photo of Jordan).

There is also the Tate art gallery at the docks, as well as the Beetles museum which is always worth a visit.




It's also nice to walk along the front of the docks, there are lots of other museums and other bits to see.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my favourite spots in liverpool, and I hope it is helpful if you are thinking of visiting! I'd love to visit more cities in the UK and explore places I've never been, what are your favourite cities to visit in the UK?
