Liverpool's One Magical City

We were delighted to be asked to attend the Liverpool lights Christmas switch-on. Liverpool has been my home town for almost ten years now, and I love it here. It is a vibrant city filled with amazing people, history and heritage. We also love a good Christmas lights switch-on event. The kids love Christmas.

Liverpool's One Magical City this year is fantastic and is probably the best Christmas for the city yet.

 The lights switch-on was fabulous. We walked around Liverpool One and encountered story tellers, carol-singers, dancers as well as some fabulous light displays and exploding ticker-tape at the finale. We had a drink under the beautiful Christmas tree at Bar Hutte - we really loved that. The bar is fully heated and includes separate little cabins that can be reserved - complete with Karaoke! We thought that it would be great to return here just as a couple at some point and spend s few hours just relaxing with some drinks under the tree.

As a family we were keen to explore what Liverpool had to offer the kids as well as adults. We explored Liverpool One and went to the funfair in Chavasse Park - the kids had an amazing time on the rides - laughing and screaming as they went. There are lots of food outlets - German sausage, waffles and beer, all available in Chavasse Park. It had a really lovely festive feel, and the Christmas lights and effects were just beautiful.

After this we wandered around the shops in Liverpool One. Liverpool is a great city to finish off the last of your Christmas shopping (or just start it, depending on how organised or bothered you are!) There really is something for everyone.

We were then treated to a lovely meal at Viva Brazil on Castle Street. Viva Brazil is a favourite of ours, the kids always enjoy the buffet-style experience with unlimited meat. Staff were friendly and helpful and we had the perfect end to our evening.

Liverpool is a magical city all year round. There is so much to see and do, and so much to explore. If you are planning on visiting, do check out the One Magical City website to check opening times for bars and events.
