My sister has been living up in Chester for a couple of years now and I still haven’t made it up there for a visit, we are in Dorset so it’s a bit of a mission for us. I really want to make it up there sometime soon though and while we are up there I really want to head into Liverpool for a day.
It’s a city I’ve never been to before but with a lot of vegan restaurants I would love to visit! It also looks like a great place for families.
Liverpool One looks like a good place to start. They are located on the waterfront and have 3 car parks with over 3000 spaces. There is 170 shops and restaurants and an Odeon cinema so if the weather is rubbish then you can go and watch a movie. We love going to the cinema.
They also have 35 bars and restaurants including Pizza Express, Wagamama, Nandos and Jamie Oliver’s Italian. You can also find a great post on Veganuary on the Liverpool One blog.
I think I would need more than a day as there are also lots of other places I would want to go and eat!
I would definitely want to go and eat in Frost Burgers, it’s owned by Monami Frost as offer 100% vegan junk food. The burgers look AMAZING!!
Can Waterloo would also be a must, they are plastic free & vegan and specialise in pies & mash which are Matt’s favourite foods!
After eating I think a walk would be a good idea, also a good way to see the city. I’ve heard the waterfront is beautiful and there are also lots of other attractions including the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Maritime Museum.
Imagine That looks like a fun place to take kids, they get to dress up and go into different areas to practice science, construction and art. With activities like painting cars and pretending to be in a supermarket, kids will be entertained for hours, and if the kids are happy then the parents are happy!
When walking gets tiring and the kids start moaning, hopping on an open top bus is a great way to explore whilst conserving energy. You can view the route on the Liverpool City Explorer website.
After writing this post I am now desperate to go and visit Liverpool! It’s on my list for things to do this summer.
Have you been? Do you have any recommendations?
