Liverpool Travel Guide: Stay, Shop, Visit and Eat

Today, I thought I'd do an alternative to a Christmas Gift Guide, I'll be talking about what to do in Liverpool this Christmas, including the best places to shop, where to stay, places to eat and what to see. If you plan a similar day out or a weekend away to Liverpool, I'm sure this guide will come in handy.

Where to Stay in Liverpool
As part of their #BloggerLodge campaign, the Travelodge kindly offered two nights stay in one of their hotels this weekend, I brought Rhys along so we could explore the city together. The Travelodge Liverpool Central Exchange Street Hotel was the ideal place to stay, just around the corner from Moorfields train station, it was easy to find and seemed very central to the attractions of Liverpool. To give you an idea, it was around 5 minutes walk to World Museum and to Liverpool One.

Where to Shop in Liverpool
Of course, you can't go shopping without visiting Liverpool One, they already had their Christmas decorations up as well as beautiful window displays.

Another more niche shopping area is the Metquarter, housing Jo Malone, MAC, Illamasqua and Daniel Footwear just to name a few of my favourites. I attended their Christmas Preview a few weeks ago and was very impressed with the collections that the brands were releasing.

What to Visit in Liverpool
For those who want to take in some of the culture of Liverpool, I would thoroughly recommend the World Museum, which is great for families, and the Tate Gallery on the Liverpool Docks, both of which are free admission.

Where to Eat in Liverpool
My boyfriend has a gluten allergy, so when we are away from home we rely on a quick Google search to find the best gluten-free restaurants in the area. We came across Trattoria 51, which offered a huge selection of gluten-free pasta and pizza options. I was very impressed with the food and the customer service was excellent, coeliacs make sure you pay this place a visit.

  2. Oh I love this. As an alternative to the Online Christmas guides that are floating around (me to be included soon!) Why not actually show people, where and what to buy out and about.
