The best way to get a feel of Liverpool’s greatness is by its waterfront!

From Albert Dock that comprises the city’s largest set of historical buildings, to the dazzling beaches further on the North of Merseyside, this route will take you to the best water sites in Liverpool.

Formby Beach

Explore the wanders of the Formy Beach, from its sandy dunes to the pinewoods!

The beach provides a great setting for a picnic, with views of the Irish Sea and sometimes the mountains of Cumbria.

Part of the Liverpool Bay and a 50-minute train ride from the centre, Formby is considered one of the best beaches in the North of England!

Blundellsands Beach

One of the best places to relax in Liverpool, Blundellsands is known for the famous iron man sculptures that can be seen along the tide line.

Take a stroll on the beach’s promenade and you’ll come across many bakeries and shops that are worth a visit!

Albert Dock

A famous feature of the Liverpool’s waterfront, Albert Dock dates back to 1839!

From restaurants to museums, Albert Dock is home to many of Liverpool’s main attractions, including the Tate Liverpool and the Beatles Story.

Calderstones Park

Spend a day with the family at Calderstones Park!

The park is named after the neolithic sandstones that are said to be older than the ones in Stonehenge.

Calderstones includes a playground, a historic mansion house, a botanical garden and many other facilities.

Sit by the lake to read a book or just to feed the geese and ducks!

Festival Gardens

Originally built for the International Garden Festival in 1984, these gardens were one of the first regeneration projects in Liverpool after the industrial decline.

Today the gardens are open to the public, featuring waterfalls, Japanese gardens and sculptures, all worthy of a visit!

Pier Head

Marvel yourself with the Liverpool Waterfront at the Pier Head!

Making up this famous skyline are the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool, together known as the  Liverpool’s “Three Graces”.

The Pier often gets crowed with people coming to capture the boats on the dock, but there are all sorts of activities happening here including street performances and other entertainment displays!

While you’re here take a stroll on the Mann Island and visit The Museum of Liverpool!
