Destination Spotlight: Liverpool

Liverpool will forever be identified with The Beatles, its most famous sons. It’s true, Liverpool is the place to come if you’re looking to get closer to the ‘fab four’, but this illustrious city offers much more to entertain, enthrall and inspire. It’s the perfect choice for urban exploration on foot, with a broad mix of attractions, events, sport venues, and, of course, that famously warm ‘Scouse’ welcome.

Beyond its unrivalled musical heritage, Liverpool has one of the world’s most recognised skylines centered around the ‘three graces’ - the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool building, a UNESCO World Heritage site, on the banks of the soulful River Medway.

Venture onto the Liverpool Waterfront for a host of attractions. The Tate Liverpool and the Merseyside Maritime Museum contribute to Liverpool’s boast of having one of the country’s finest collections of museums, galleries and theaters. The Albert Dock - rich in heritage - has the UK’s biggest grouping of grade 1 listed buildings. And here, you’ll also discover The Beatles Story, take a riverside walk or catch a ferry across the Mersey.

As an international city, Liverpool offers every dining experience, from romantic fine dining restaurants, gastro pubs, lively bars and bistros and family eateries.

Conferences & Meetings in Liverpool

The port city of Liverpool, on England’s northwest coast, claimed its place on the world stage as an ambitious economic powerhouse. On occasions during the 19th century, its wealth exceeded London’s and it was described as "the New York of Europe”. This boom time has left a rich legacy for the meetings organiser, with a wide choice of large and interesting buildings offering facilities for meetings and events, and the charming, determined and infectious Liverpudlian character that helped build the city, well and truly intact to welcome your guests.

Kings Dock, on the Liverpool Waterfront, leads Liverpool’s venue offering with the outstanding and iconic ACC Liverpool - a stunning example of modern architecture. The complex is the location of the 1,350-seat BT Convention Centre with a banqueting suite for 1,800 guests, 21 seminar and break-out rooms and exhibition space of 7,125m2; the 11,000-capacity Echo Arena; and Exhibition Centre Liverpool, an 8,100m² purpose-built exhibition centre.

In terms of hotel accommodation, there is a wide choice. All the leading brands are represented - many offering event facilities - and independent hotels such as Hope Street Hotel and Hard Days Night Hotel contribute to more than 5,000 quality hotel bedrooms available.

Liverpool has excellent road and rail connections to every corner of the UK and is close to two international airports, Liverpool John Lennon and Manchester International for flights to destinations around the globe.
