  • Tips & Recommendations
    +

    • Packing the right gear for your visit is a must. Waterproof outer-wear, walking shoes and warm clothes (for winter visits) are a must.

    • Avoid franchise bars if you are looking to experience Liverpool's fine drinking culture. Instead of visiting a franchise, such as Walkabout, head down to The classic bohemian Everyman Bistro, The Philharmonic Pub, The Grapes, The PostOffice on School Lane or The Korova bar for a better experience.

    • Liverpool is full of friendly and chatty people. On your travels, be prepared to encounter plenty of "Scousers". The scouse accent is thick and unique, highly influenced by the Irish and Welsh, and offers original phrases such as "upp th' toffeys" and "ee's well sownd".
