48 Hours in Liverpool

So much to do, so little time! Liverpool is one of those cities that's bursting with places to visit, things to do and restaurants to try out. It's probably best known as the birthplace of The Beatles, as well as for its iconic waterfront. I do love the Beatles, but I tried to make the trip less about them and more about other unique things to do within the city. I stayed at the lovely Dream Apartments Water Street for the first night (close to the waterfront) and the second night I stayed at CARO Short Stay Apartments Parker Street (centre of shopping area). I was a bit tired so staying in apartments both nights meant I could make my own food rather than going out and spending more money. If you love the Beatles, make sure you check out the statue of the band at the Pier Head, stop in at The Cavern Club, and take a look at The Beatles Story at The Albert Docks. Everything is within walking distance of one another as long as you don't mind a few hills. I probably spent too much time along the waterfront, but hey, it was stunning.

If you go anywhere in Liverpool, make sure it's the heart of its waterfront, the Albert Dock! If you're a music fan, this is where The Beatles Story can be found too.

Highlight of my trip? Probably. The Albert Dock also hosts Puffle Waffle, where you can get the cutest desserts!

Just across the road is the Liverpool Wheel, providing you with lovely views of the city and waterfront.

Liverpool's version of the Parisian love lock bridge!

It's a bit of a trek, but if you have time definitely go and take a look at Liverpool Cathedral, the interior is stunning.

Just in front of the cathedral is Chinatown.

Walk the streets of Liverpool! It's known for its shopping, and some of the streets are very pretty to walk along.

As a Canadian, I'm able to sniff out poutine wherever I go. Caribou Poutine is a must.

You can't miss Liverpool's iconic Royal Liver Building. You can also check out the Titanic memorial nearby.

Take a look at the bombed out church, hollowed out during the blitz of 1941.

This was really fun to stumbled upon! I'll let you find it, but I'll give you a hint: it's just off the main shopping street.

I spent a large portion of my time at the waterfront. If you're a museum goer, stop by the Museum of Liverpool.

Walking along the Pier Head during sunset was absolutely beautiful.

Golden hour at its finest!

Happy exploring! I'm hoping to visit Liverpool again, so any other recommendations would be helpful!
