    St John's Beacon

    Forget walking from attraction to attraction by foot, instead take a different view of the city by grabbing a lift to the top of St John’s Beacon. Enjoy panoramic views of Liverpool, stunning scenery and on a good day it’s even been said that you can spot Blackpool. Although we hardly have to sell it to you, do we? The picture speaks for itself.

    As the epitome of a hidden gem, Kabinett is the perfect place to take a date, your mates, or even your parents, especially if you’re looking to show off your ability to pick-out the coolest places like a pro. With a melting pot of delicious meats, cheeses and wine, Kabinett is great for anyone who loves that off-the-beaten-track kind of vibe. They’ve even got fortune tellers mixing up the drinks!

    The Baltic Triangle

    Even though everyone goes to Albert Dock (we admit it is very pretty) one a break to Liverpool, we recommend taking a trip to the Baltic Triangle instead, especially if you’re the kind of person that wants to experience something truly unique. Known for being Liverpool’s most up-and-coming area, the Baltic Triangle is home to some of the best creative industries, eateries and quirky shops in the city making it the perfect way to see the city in a whole different light.

    Kazimier Gardens

    An indoor garden may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Liverpool, but it’s there, and it’s stunning! Often described as a secret paradise, the incredible Kazimier Gardens is definitely something you need to tick off your things-to-do-in-Liverpool list.

    Sefton Park

    Just because Liverpool is a busy city it doesn’t mean that there isn’t some 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 need to schedule in a few hours there.

    With its curved paths, stunning trees and cute little boating lakes, Sefton Park is a hotspot for keen strollers and scenery lovers alike.

    Crosby Beach

    Museums, galleries and big shopping centres are all things you’d expect to find in a big city like Liverpool (and yes of course, 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 the most naturally beautiful, serene place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
