Book Your Stay


The city has a glorious past as a mercantile hub and gateway to the New World, but today it is also a key destination for art lovers, fans of the theatre and museum goers. The city has numerous permanent art attractions including a lot of free art exhibitions. Visit the Walker Art Gallery, the national gallery of the North, housing an outstanding collection of British and European art from 1300 to the present day. Includes works by Hockney, Degas, Turner and Rembrandt. Tate Liverpool, positioned at the historic Albert Dock, is also a must-visit city art gallery. Housed in a stunning Grade 1 listed converted warehouse, Tate Liverpool stages lots of fantastic free, as well as paid for, art exhibitions which have featured work by everyone from Tracey Emin to Picasso! 

Where better to start your tour of the city’s maritime heritage than the famous and historic Liverpool Waterfront. The area is a key part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. You'll find museums, galleries and a huge range of venues to eat and drink amid the lofty colonnades of this architectural splendour - the country's largest group of Grade I listed buildings. If your passion is boats and ships the Cruise Liner Facility at Princes Dock is a must see when the ships are in port. Be sure to check the itinerary so you don’t miss out on the fine liners or the many visiting naval ships that moor here every year.

The Albert Dock really is the place to play, to see, to eat, drink and stay. Blending old and new, it's contemporary, yet cultured; fun, and friendly.

Music, The Beatles & Mathew Street

Liverpool is famous for its music, but if you think Liverpool, most people think the Beatles. The city is officially the World Capital of Pop, and the Fab Four are, of course, its most famous offspring. Therefore, a non-negotiable trip for Liverpool music fans, a trip to The Beatles Story at Albert Dock should be top of the list! A brilliant tour through the Beatles’ lives, with fascinating Fab Four memorabilia and insights from friends and family. You should also pop into the Cavern Club on Mathew Street, where the Beatles began, for a lunchtime beer or some live music in the evening. Or why not visit the childhood homes of John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney, Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road in Allerton, both of which are now National Trust properties.

The Liverpool music scene also includes the world-class Echo Arena Liverpool too, which has attracted massive names such as Bob Dylan, Beyonce and Dame Shirley Bassey. Their vast range of facilities at theM&S Bank Arena, include a 1600-space car park beside it on the Liverpool Waterfront, 22 hospitality boxes, numerous food and drink concessions and two star dressing rooms.


Liverpool is passionate about many things, but football is right up there at the top. The city is, in short, footie mad. Liverpool is home to two of the Premier League’s biggest football teams, Liverpool Football Club and Everton Football Club, and the city’s inhabitants are cleanly divided between support for the Reds, Liverpool FC, or the Blues, Everton FC. The two football teams are the source of much heated debate in the city’s pubs!

Shopping and Liverpool ONE

Liverpool shopping is world class, which is only fitting for a city that can shop till it drops. Shoppers are spoilt for choice between gleaming new city-centre shopping centres, to the boutique arcades, bohemian streets and farmers markets of Bold Street and beyond.

Liverpool ONE, right in the heart of the city, is the shiny new designer Liverpool shopping centre that is home to more than 160 famous high street names, from John Lewis to Apple, Topshop to Cath Kidston.

Should you tire of shopping, and it is an exhausting business, then you can put your feet up and take a break at one of Liverpool ONE’s 30+ restaurants, serving a fantastic array of delicious cuisines from around the globe, from French to Italian, Japanese to South American.

You could visit Jamie’s Italian with his rustic menu and antipasti bar. Or tantalise your tastebuds at the award-winning Thai restaurant Chaophraya. You could sample the world on a plate for one set price at Red Hot Buffet or even dive into a bowl of noodles at Wagamama. And bars abound at Liverpool ONE too, so you can swiftly refresh yourself with a cheeky glass of wine, a cold beer or even a cocktail before heading out for some more retail therapy. Liverpool ONE even has a 14-screen cinema if you fancy catching the latest blockbuster.

Eating Out in Liverpool

Liverpool has every kind of restaurant, from sleek fine dining to independent bistros and high street favourites. It can tick just about every box in terms of international cuisine, ranging from Indian street food to American style smokehouses. Head to 60 Hope Street for classic, gourmet dishes and sample its signature dessert – a deep fried ham sandwich with Carnation milk ice-cream! Or go up the road to the Everyman Bistro for a wholesome, delicious selection of fresh salads, hot dishes and soups served all day long.

Enjoy the finest, hand-crafted food, a delectable Classic Champagne Cocktail whilst enjoying breath taking, 360° views across the city and the Wirral Peninsula from Panoramic 34, on the 34th floor of West Tower (don’t miss out on Hervé’s belt-tightening cheese trolley!). Or go and feast on modern, international food at The London Carriage Works at Hope Street Hotel, popular with the city’s gastronomes. A must try is the relatively new Art School restaurant that is getting rave reviews with well-known local chef Paul Askew at the helm.

National B&B Week 2019 - 18th-24th March 2019

Did you know that there are over 20,000 B&Bs in the UK, and that they generate over £2 billion annually to the UK economy? This is something that we think is worth celebrating, that’s why we are participating in National B&B Week 2019!

Mere Brook House has recently celebrated it's 10 year anniversary, and in this past year alone we have hosted countless weddings, celebrations and business meetings and welcomed hundreds of guests, including The Great British Bake Offs Prue Leith. We have also opened our doors to a BBC film crew, who used the house to film a 90 minute drama named "Care" which starred Sheridan Smith and Alison Steadman. 

In October 2017 the Mayor of Wirral unveiled a blue plaque in recognition of the incredible Ann Davison, the first female to sail the Atlantic single handed. Ann lived at Mere Brook for four years and the house features in one of her books – in fact she refers to living at Mere Brook as some of her happiest times.

Over the past 10 years we have been honoured to win numerous awards including Bed & Breakfast of the Year and The Independent Business Award at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2017 and after taking a year out we are delighted to be shortlisted at The Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2019 in two categories, Hotel of the Year and Independent Tourism Business of the Year. In 2015 we were shortlisted for The National Tourism awards run by Visit England in the bed and breakfast category. Last year we were also awarded a Special Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor to celebrate 5 years of consistently excellent reviews! 

So from the 18th to the 24th of March 2019 I hope you will join us in applauding all the great things that independent hoteliers contribute to the hospitality industry!

Wirral Borough of Culture 2019



I hope you are all aware by now that Wirral is the Borough of Culture for the Liverpool City Region in 2019. This is a relatively new initiative where the spotlight will be put on a different borough of the region each year highlighting existing and new cultural events. St Helens was the first borough in 2018 to lead the way and this year is Wirral's turn.

I am delighted by the amazing programme of events, many of which are new, that are planned for 2019 some of which are listed below - and how amazing it is that Tour of Britain cycle race have also chosen Wirral to be involved in their internationally renowned race.

2019 gives us a real opportunity to showcase Wirral to visitors and put this wonderful place on the map.

There will be many ways that those businesses and organisations involved in offering services and facilities to visitors can get involved and a meeting will be arranged in early March when more of the practical and operational details can be shared which I urge you to attend.

Lorna Tyson,
Chair of Wirral Visitor Economy Network

The first event is 'Animated Square' in Hamilton Square on Saturday 23rd March, for more information see here.
