I fell in love with Liverpool when I visited last, and knew I had to come back as there was still so much to do! The main purpose of coming to Liverpool this time around was that we were seeing Russell Howard on the Saturday evening, but around that, we ticked a lot off on our Liverpool bucketlist! My weekend in Liverpool blog is one of my most-read blogs, so I thought I’d put together a blog about three days in Liverpool! Take inspiration from my three day itinerary ☺️
After a three hour journey up from Bristol, our first stop was brunch! Being a travel blogger, I do A LOT of research before I head to a new city or place, to make sure we get the most out of our visit! Moose Coffee was rated one of the top places for brunch, and no wonder why. When we arrived the queue was out the door, we only had to wait for around twenty minutes before we were able to get inside.
The menu is extensive, there are plenty of options, including all-day brunch favourites, egg benedict’s and of course, pancakes!! I actually opted for the Double Dutch pancakes, which have smoked sausage and streaky bacon baked into them, topped with two eggs and a side of syrup. Very tasty and would highly recommend for brunch!
Anyone who knows me knows that I love shopping, some would say I am a shopping addict… We didn’t want to waste too much time shopping as shopping is mostly the same in every city, but the only place we HAD to visit was, of course, Primark. Different in every city, Primark is a must-visit whichever city we visit! The shops are pretty much all together, making it the perfect place to spend a few hours exploring as you don’t have to walk too much!
I’ve become a massive gin fan, luckily my two friends are too! We did look up the option for doing the Gin Tasting tour, but it was £38.50, which we didn’t really want to spend for just a weekend away. We did, however, pop in for a drink! There are tonnes of gins and tonics, the bartender was lovely too, so even if you don’t want to do the tour, pop in for a beverage! ?
I’d been wanting to go to Yard & Coop since my visit last year and finding the place on Instagram. We’d booked a table at Yard & Coop a few weeks before, we were going to see Russell Howard, so we had to get an early table. The place is very Instagrammble, with a bathtub filled with ball pit balls for a snap! The menu is pretty incredible too, you choose your buttermilk chicken (breast, thigh, drumsticks or halloumi option), with a sauce and then you can pimp your fries! There are other options too but this is what we went with.
I went with the buttermilk fried thighs with a ranch sauce (mayo, garlic, and chive) and pimped my fries to the loaded tatties (tater tots with cheese sauce and chilli mayo). I think we’d built up our meal here as we’d been waiting over a year, it was good but it wasn’t as amazing as I expected. I would still recommend though!
Like every city, Liverpool is a good place for a night out! With an abundance of places to grab a cocktail. There are the normal cocktail bars such as The Alchemist, Vodka Revs, Be At One and Cosy Club, but also a bunch of independent ones such as Berry & Rye, Volpi, Petit Café Du Coin, and Baltic Market! ?
Wherever we go, we like to do a bottomless brunch! We were also celebrating on Sunday we were in Liverpool. We didn’t want to drink too many drinks as we had a whole day of exploring to do, but The Florist offers a bottomless brunch for £25 for a dish off the brunch menu and bottomless prosecco! At first glance, I wanted the French Toast which has Biscoff and Nutella! But they’d changed the way the bottomless brunches are done, originally it was the dish you’d like (the French Toast was £6.25) and the prosecco £15, which would come to less than £25! They’d changed how this was done, so we all opted for the Full English (£8.50).
The Florist is an absolute dream, floral walls, good lighting, it is my future home inspiration! The cocktails are really good too, so I’d recommend visiting even if it’s not for food. We’ve got one in Bristol which I’ve been to a number of times! ?
After our brunch, we spent a few hours wandering, sort of by accident but it was good to see more of Liverpool! We wanted to go to Panoramic 34, but it was fully booked, the place gives you panoramic views over Liverpool, combined with cocktails! I’d recommend booking if you’d like to go!
As we were in Liverpool for three days and the second day being Sunday, we made it Sunday Funday! We’d booked to play a round of crazy golf, but with a difference! Junk Yard Golf features neon lights, loud music, and great cocktails! You don’t need to book as you can wait for the next available slot, but we did book beforehand. There are three courses with nine holes each, it goes pretty fast but it was so much fun! ⛳️
One of the things which we knew we had to do this time was visit The Cavern Club, The Beatles changed music and so many incredible artists have played here. It was buzzing, even on a Sunday evening! It was very packed, we did manage to find a seat but do beware how busy it actually gets. There are three stages within the underground club; the Cavern Club, Live Lounge and Cavern Pub.
To end our final day in Liverpool, we went to The Brunch Club, because you can never have enough brunch! Again, I found this when searching on the best brunches in Liverpool list. The menu is extensive again, I opted for Chorizo Scrambled Eggs with a side of Hash Browns! The interior is pretty Instagrammable too ??♀️
I am all about expanding my knowledge and learning more about the place I’m in. I grew up with my dad listening to The Beatles, and so knew we had to visit The Beatles Story. It’s basically an immersive experience, where you listen to an audiobook and go through the whole journey of The Beatles. Honestly, I learned so much and took all my new-found knowledge back home and to work to tell everyone! It’s £13 for a student ticket, and very much worth a few hours of your time, even if you aren’t a massive music fan. We didn’t want to do too much on our last day as we had to drive back down south, but feel as though we did quite a bit!
If you’re heading to Liverpool, I hope my three days in Liverpool itinerary has given you a bit of inspo of what to do when you’re in this incredible city! I am just in love with Liverpool as I was the first time I visited, there is so much to see and do, and I’ve not even touched the sides of everything on offer!
If you’ve been to Liverpool before, are there any other places or things you’d recommend doing? Let me know in the comments!
