The city centre itself is easily explored on foot, with many pedestrian-only streets and points of interest. Near Lime Street, the Walker Art Gallery exhibits a rich collection of art, unrivalled outside London. Downhill via Bold Street, head towards Liverpool One, a stylish new shopping centre. With car hire organised, a short drive will take you to the waterside attractions at the chic Albert Dock, or why not enjoy a drive along the rejuvenated waterfront?
From Liverpool Pier Head, there are ferries across the River Mersey to experience yesteryear and how workers came to Liverpool before the underground tunnels were built. A triangular trip with commentary is sure to delight, with a whiff of the Irish Sea close by. Liverpool is well known for its European-class football team, with their home stadium in Anfield.
With car hire, a short drive through the Mersey Tunnel will take you to Birkenhead (for the main road to Chester) - or to Wallasey, at the top of the Wirral peninsula and convenient for seeing New Brighton, sedate Hoylake with its golf course, or West Kirby.
Here, the sandy beach, marine lake, Victorian park and quaint cafeterias make a great afternoon out - or a walk (tide permitting) to the nature reserve of Hilbre Island. Alternatively, take the electric train one stop up the line and enjoy a scenic walk back.
Heading north from Liverpool in your hire car, follow the Lancashire coastline to the town of Freshfields. Here, the nature reserve near the sandy beach is home to friendly red squirrels; just a little further is the popular seaside resort of Southport. Alternatively, the ancient Roman city of Chester offers two thousand years of fascinating history. Situated on the border of England and Wales and only a quick thirty-minute drive south from Liverpool, it makes a convenient day trip with car hire.
After parking your hire car, head towards Chester Cross - near the impressive sandstone cathedral, gardens and cobbled streets. Alternatively, take in the views and captivating architecture - or explore the park, scenic walks and boat trips along the River Dee. A recent survey ranked this destination the fifth most beautiful European city; certainly, shopping in ‘The Rows’ enchants with various cafés and restaurants, or a stroll along city walls with footpaths and ancient amphitheatre ruins.
