Head into Mersey Maritime Museum to discover Liverpool's maritime heritage, and study ancient and modern slavery in the International Slavery Museum.

  • What an iconic place! Beautiful and with many shops and restaurants around it. Great tourist attractions for a little break while you site seeing the Liverpool city. There's teh most amazing crystal shop and jelly beans shop with hundreds of choices. Very good food choices and the hip on hop off bus stop is just a walking distance from it so you can continue exploring the city
  • Great place for a wander. Offering amazing views of the sea. It's great for kids and those with mobility issues. Plenty of boutiques, cafes, restaurants, food trucks and shops to visit. One can easily spend hours here. Lots see and due including the Tate Museum and the Merseyside Museum. Great for photos or just sit and read a book. Wasn't overly busy when we visited in November and weather was great.
