One Day in Liverpool

One Day in Liverpool, Liverpool, England (B)

If you don’t have the opportunity for a long stay in Liverpool, you can enjoy it as a day trip from a nearby (or not so nearby) city, like Manchester, Leeds, or even London. From Manchester or Leeds, you can get to Liverpool and back in under an hour. If you take a direct train from London, you can be in Liverpool, in just under 2.5 hours. You’ll find that these trains run almost every hour, giving you a lot of flexibility for your return trip in the evening, assuming you don’t decide to spend the night. So what can you do in one day in Liverpool?

If you’re coming in by train, chances are you’ll arrive at the Liverpool Lime Street Station, which is already in the thick of the action. You’ll be less than 5 minutes walk from your first stop.

If you like shopping, you’ll enjoy Church Street, which is one of the main shopping streets in Liverpool. There you’ll find major department stores, and on the off-chance that you’re there on the right day, you may come across a street festival, outdoor market or performers. During the holidays, this area will be decked out in lights. Adjacent to Church Street is Clayton Square, a large indoor mall, with a domed glass ceiling that makes you feel like you’re outdoors, even if you’re warm and cozy inside. Even if you’re not in a shopping mood, it’s a lively area to take a walk through. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
