Liverpool: #EvolvingCities

We have lived here together in Liverpool for about seven years now. My husband is a proper Scouser and I moved to live here to be with him. I do love Liverpool. I love the history, the culture, the architecture. You can often find me sat in Abercromby Square by the university (usually with a huge bag of books!)

We were delighted to be asked by Travelodge to visit Liverpool city centre as a family. I loved this Liverpool #EvolvingCities page that they created - a quick slide over the screen shows some of Liverpool's main sites now and back in the day.  It's amazing to see how things have changed.

We often visit Liverpool, but I find that when we do we tend to be shopping and it can get quite hectic. Sometimes it is great to just explore the city for what it is, without the shopping and commercial rush. 

We planned to visit the Albert Dock, walk along by the water and maybe bob in and out of some of the museums and stop for dinner somewhere.

It was such a lovely sunny day. We did pop in to the Liverpool Museum, which is home to some wonderful Liverpool-inspired exhibitions. With the kids, we tend to do museums quite quickly - especially at weekends or they can get quite restless, and as the sun was shining we decided to make the most of it with a lovely walk.

The girls really love seeing new places, and we try to explain a bit about the history, a little about what their surroundings are - I like the girls to have new experiences and engage with us as we walk and talk.

We absolutely love this new Beatles statue on the Pier Head and couldn't wait to get some lovely photographs of the kids.
After our lovely walk and visit to the museum we went out for dinner and grabbed a couple of ice creams on our walk back to the car. We love this city. It has such a rich history, so much to see and do with great places to eat and relax. We are very much looking forward to the arrival of summer and I think a ferry trip will be on the cards!

We were asked to write this post for Travelodge as part of their #EvolvingCities campaign.
