For football fans, Goodison Park and Anfield stadiums are also within easy distance. With current plans for large-scale regeneration there’s plenty to explore in Bootle itself with a leisure centre to keep families happy plus New Strand Shopping Centre. Also noteworthy is the Bridle Road Heritage and Education Centre at the HQ of Merseyside Fire & Rescue. Phone and book to admire a large collection of machines, equipment and one of Britain’s largest fire & rescue photographic collections.
Its reputation may owe much to football and the Beatles but there’s so much more to Liverpool with lots of great museums, shopping and buildings. Head to Albert Dock for a great selection of attractions such as The Beatles Story and the recently opened Mattel Play for little ones. The World Heritage Site is also home to Tate Liverpool plus great shops and restaurants. And if there’s a footie game on the city is a great place to catch it with a range of bars offering a fab atmosphere.
