Liverpool is, of course, most known for The Beatles – but take a look around the city and you’ll fall in love with it. Here are 18 perfect Instagrams which will ensure that Liverpool is part of your plans when visiting the United Kingdom!

Particularly in the summer months, the Albert Dock is one of the city’s most stunning areas to explore. Whether you’re here for a bite to eat, to check out one of its many museums and galleries or to just have a stroll, it’s definitely worth checking out.

The Albert Dock is also home to one of the best Beatles museums in the city: The Beatles Story.

For more of a Beatles tour of Liverpool, you’ll want to head to Mathew Street. But first, some of Liverpool’s most stunning architecture overlooks the Albert Dock, like the Royal Liver Building.

To delve more into the city’s architecture, you might want to head to Liverpool Cathedral. It’s the fifth largest cathedral in the world and the third tallest structure in Liverpool.

Liverpool is not all buildings though! The city is home to some beautiful parks and green spaces, with Sefton Park being the perfect example.

But if you’re on the northern side of the city, Stanley Park is equally as good for an evening walk, too. Furthermore, Stanley Park is the only separation between the two football clubs in the city – Everton and Liverpool.

If you’re not into football, maybe you’re more into music! Thankfully, Liverpool is packed with musical heritage and Mathew Street is the perfect place to visit for that.

And of course, it’s also home to the world famous Cavern Club! No trip to Liverpool is complete without a visit to the old haunt of the Fab Four.

If music and sport really isn’t your thing though, we’d have to question what you’re doing in Liverpool… I mean, it’s not like it’s home to some of the most picturesque views in the country from some of its many hidden rooftop bars…

But if you’d rather look up than down, the Georgian Quarter should be right up your street.

This charming neighbourhood is home to both of Liverpool’s cathedrals, as well as the famous Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.

As you should know by now, this city is packed with history. Cains Brewery still operates in the same premises as they have done since the late 19th century.

Cains Brewery is also the home of Ghetto Golf. You’ve really got to try this.

For a more cultural view of the city, you might want to head to the St. George’s Hall area and marvel in its Grade I listed excellence.

Liverpool is not all tall buildings and football teams though. Crosby Beach is not too far and features Anthony Gormley’s Another Place sculptures.

Liverpool is also home to one of the largest selections of independent retailers in the UK. They’ve even got a whole street pretty much dedicated to them!

And The Bluecoat – Liverpool’s creative hub – is one of the city’s most important treasures too.

But overall, there’s so much to see in Liverpool that we’d need to share 180 perfect Instagrams. The only thing that’s left to do is to go and see it for yourselves…
