    Have a wander around the beautiful Botanic Gardens

    As we said, Liverpool isn’t just about culture and sightseeing, it’s pretty well known for providing a good night out too. If you’ve had one (or six) too many the night before, there’s no better place than Liverpool’s Botanic Gardens to walk off a sore head. With its pretty hideaways, serene green spaces, and an array of colourful flowers, we think it’s safe to say we’ve spent our hangovers in worse places, don’t you?
