    Embrace cooler than cool at The Baltic Triangle

    A visit to Liverpool should always tick off a few things – top attractions like the Albert Dock, the ECHO wheel and at least one of its (many) museums, but if you’re looking to do something a little bit different the Baltic Triangle should be right at the top of your list. Known for being Liverpool’s most ‘up-and-coming’ area, the Baltic Triangle is home to some of the best creative industries, independent eateries, and a number of kitsch and quirky shops. A true hidden gem, if you ask us!

    Marvel at the incredible Picton Reading Room within Liverpool’s Central Library

    Whether or not you’re into books, the Picton Reading Room situated within Liverpool’s Central Library is well worth a visit. From admiring its incredible architecture through to setting your sights upon the world’s largest book, this hidden gem is nothing like you will have ever seen before.

    Explore the Kazimier Gardens

    We know, we know, an indoor garden isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Liverpool, but the  Kazimier Gardens are definitely worth the visit. Often described as a ‘secret paradise’ it’s the perfect place to go for a drink or two. A hidden gem that not many know about, we think it would be a pretty ideal date location too.

    Go in search of Berry & Rye

    Situated behind nothing but a blackened door and curtain, Berry and Rye is the epitome of a hidden gem – you even have to knock to get inside. Described as being an eclectic mix of old time Chicago and a wild west whiskey saloon, you can be certain of one thing – you’re not going to find anywhere else like this in Liverpool. We recommend the strawberry gin fizz.

    Take in the beauty of Sefton Park

    Just because Liverpool is a busy city it doesn’t mean that there isn’t any idyllic spaces to enjoy a bit of me-time. Sefton Park is one of our favourite spaces and even though it’s probably far too big and far too beautiful to be referred to as a hidden gem (after all, when something is this pretty there’s no way people wouldn’t know about it), you definitely need to schedule in a few hours there.

    Discover the unexpected at Crosby Beach

    Museums, galleries and big shopping centres are all things you’d expect to find in a big city like Liverpool (and yes the city has them all), but a beach? That’s a little more surprising, isn’t it? Situated just a short distance north of the city centre, Crosby Beach is one of the most naturally beautiful, serene places to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and is one of our favourite hidden gems by far!
