There’s plenty of ways to spend fun days out in Liverpool even if you are visiting the city midweek. Whether you are planning a trip to Liverpool with the family, friends or someone special, The Shankly Hotel has some magnificent offers to help you on your way.
So, here are some of the fun ways to spend days out in Liverpool during the week.
Catch Up On Culture
During the weekend, Liverpool’s museums and galleries can be jam-packed with people making it difficult or less enjoyable to take a leisurely visit. Instead, plan your trip to Liverpool midweek and take your time strolling around the exhibitions at the TATE or check out some fabulous photography at the Open Eye Gallery.
From The Shankly, guests are within a stone’s throw of the Walker Art Gallery and World Museum on William Brown Street. Here you can enjoy discovering oodles of world culture from ancient civilisations to the world of dinosaurs and more amazing artwork collections!
Come rain or shine, there are plenty of museums in Liverpool all of which are worth a visit midweek. Pop into the Merseyside Maritime Museum to see a vast collection of seafaring memorabilia, exhibitions and demonstrations linked to Liverpool’s maritime heritage – or why not hop on over the Mersey to see the stunning Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight?
A monument in itself, the Lady Lever Art Gallery houses an impressive collection of sculptures and ancient furniture, weaponry and artwork that was once collected by Lord Lever himself.
All these fun days out in Liverpool are easy to reach from the comfort of The Shankly Hotel and better still – they’re all free!
Indulge In Some Retail Therapy
