Live departures and arrivals

The vibrant and buzzing city of Liverpool is one of the most visited places in the UK and it’s no wonder! Renowned for The Beatles, football, and the iconic Mersey River, this cultural hotspot is jam-packed with enough galleries, museums, and attractions to keep anyone happy. 

Brother to the Tate London, the Tate Liverpool is home to an impressive collection of contemporary pieces by such talent as Monet, Picasso and Klimt, and if you’re less into The Beatles than other genres, why not head for the British Music Experience? For families, there are plenty of child-friendly attractions - Spaceport being particularly popular. 

If retail therapy is your thing, Liverpool ticks that box too, with its vast collection of high street brands and designer labels, and for seekers of hidden, one-off gems, the arcades full of artisan boutiques offer bohemian gifts and handcrafted goodies.
