24 Hours In Liverpool – Gifted (AD)
This weekend I decided to treat my best friend Emily for her birthday! I thought I’d take us both to Liverpool, which had me thinking of a blog post! How would I suggest spending 24 hours in Liverpool to an absolute stranger? It’s a great question, and there is so much I could include in this blog post, but I thought I’d go with how I would authentically spend my weekend, and how I would recommend spending 24 hours in Liverpool as a local.
Hard Days Night Hotel
If you’re looking for hotels in Liverpool, then I definitely recommend taking a look at the Hard Days Night Hotel. Dedicated to The Beatles, this quirky little hotel is right in the middle of the city, and is a walk away from the famous Cavern Club, where The Beatles themselves were discovered. I loved the decor in our room. It paid homage to the band without being cheesy, and the bed was extremely comfortable.
We headed to the hotel around 6, checked into our room and headed straight to dinner…
If you’re a fan of Spanish and Italian cuisine then I definitely recommend this restaurant. With its own bellini bar, the small plates here are packed with flavour (I recommend the honey chorizo!) and the staff are super friendly. It has a laid back vibe in general but it also oozes its own elegance.
Liverpool Gin Distillery
Next we headed to the Liverpool Gin Distillery. For cheap drinks and a good social vibe, this place is great. I love Parma Violet Gin and this place literally has it all! From Watermelon Gin Cocktails to a dark rum hidden bar. If you’re looking for a relatively calm night with friends, this is the place to be. After a few here, we decided to head back to the room.
If you’re looking for the best breakfast in town, this is the place to go. Although it’s gathering attention from a lot of tourists, you can still get in if you head down early. From pancakes to benedicts, it provides amazing food at a good price, and if you’re looking for a great instagram pic, this is the place to go. Me & Emily went for pancakes (obviously)!
Looking for the latest artwork to see in town, follow Independent Liverpool. You’ll find the latest information on art installations, theatre productions and so much more. Currently at the Liverpool Cathedral, you can find a gigantic earth floating in the main hall. Gaia, the installation by Luke Jerram, offers a unique look into our world, and looks even better in person than it does in photos!
