Destination; Liverpool One


With the long summer holidays looming, if you’re anything like us you’ll no doubt be planning things to do to keep the family happy. Day trips, weekend breaks or the big summer holiday, none of which are quite as spontaneous as they used to be! Instead I do like to plan things to make sure we all have a great day out.

With a busy family, days out need to provide us with a variety of activities to suit everyone in the family. I don’t want to be driving from here to there just to keep everyone busy. It uses up valuable family time, and adds to the stress every time we have to battle with car seats and collapsing the buggy! I want a destination which has lots to offer for all the family.

So, a family destination like Liverpool One is ideal. Offering more than just shops and restaurants, it really is a hub of activity. Boasting 170 stores, perfect for picking up the a cinema, Roxy Ball Room (think pool or ping pong, not dancing!) and even over 5 acres of gardens – perfect to relax in. There’s lots for everyone, but that’s not all!

Liverpool One also has an extensive events programme, covering everything from Sports events to favourite kids tv character appearances! They even host their own Comic Con – as a self-confessed Star Wars geek I think this is really exciting! There really does seem to be something to keep everyone busy, check out the guide below showing you what’s on!

It’s been a while since I visited Liverpool, the last time I was there I remember vividly thinking I needed more time to spend exploring. There’s so much to see in the city, and I especially loved the Cathedral and seeing the Eleanor Rigby Statue. But I think Liverpool One was still under construction – I said it was a long time ago I visited!
