2 Day Study Experience Tours from £109 per student
Departing: Throughout 2018 & 2019

Vibrant, cultural, dynamic, friendly and welcoming are all words that can be used to describe the city of Liverpool. Practically bursting at the seams with attractions and sights, you and your students will be spoilt for choice as to what to include in your itinerary.

Liverpool city has more museums and galleries than any other UK city outside of the capital, most of which are free; two UNESCO accreditations – a world heritage site and City of Music, showcased in its array of sights. Add to this the fact that it’s easy to reach nearly all the key attractions on foot it makes this city an ideal destination for a school or college group.

The following walking route will give your group a good orientation of the city and highlights some of the key places of interest which you may choose to include a proper visit to as part of your itinerary. Starting at the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral affectionately known as ‘Paddy’s Wigwam’ due to its striking design, make your way along Hope Street to Liverpool Cathedral , the largest Anglican cathedral in Britain. Onto Upper Parliament Street follow the signs towards the Albert Dock where you’ll find the award-winning Beatles Story for a unique interactive tour through the lives and times of John, Paul, George and Ringo – from the early days to their solo careers. Albert Dock is also home to the Tate Liverpool, and the Merseyside Maritime Museum opposite includes the International Slavery Museum and ‘Siezed! The Border and Customs uncovered’ gallery.

From the Albert Dock head to the city’s famous waterfront where you’ll find the distinctive Museum of Liverpool, the largest newly-built national museum in Britain for more than a century and the world’s first national museum devoted to the history of a regional city. From the Waterfront Pier Head you can take a River Explorer ferry across the Mersey to Seacombe (Wallasey) or Woodside (Birkenhead), alternatively a round trip on board allows you to see the best views of the city’s waterfront.

Before leaving the Waterfront area you can pause for pictures with the Fab Four before heading over to the Three Graces which consists of the Royal Liver Building the city’s signature landmark adorned by two Liver Birds, The Port of Liverpool Building and The Cunard Building whose former passenger lounge has been transformed into the permanent home of the British Music Experience, an interactive, immersive look at how British music has changed the world.

Heading away from the waterfront take a short detour over to Mathew Street to pass by The Cavern Club where The Beatles played 292 gigs. As you continue back up into the city centre you will reach the Cultural Quarter of the city. Architecture is a huge attraction for visitors to the city and a particular highlight is the stunning St George’s Hall considered by many experts to be one of the finest examples of neoclassical architecture in Europe. Neighbouring buildings include the World Museum and the Walker Art Gallery which as part of the National Museums Liverpool (NML) are both free to enter, open seven days a week with free admission.

The end of this route brings you to the Liverpool Empire Theatre, the largest two tier theatre in the UK hosting the very best in touring theatre productions, a great choice for an evening’s entertainment.
