Liverpool with the Kids: What to Do this Summer

The summer holidays can really take their toll if you don’t plan ahead. Organising activities to keep them entertained during the long haul break from school can help to make the six weeks go by without a hitch and while there’s usually plenty to be getting on with locally to your home, a bustling city break can provide you with entirely new adventures.

Staying in the heart of a buzzing city can open up new doors and give you and your family the chance to explore your surroundings with ease. If you’re planning on a visit to the North West this summer, Travelodge hotels in Liverpool would be a perfect base for you to explore this vibrant, multi-faceted city. Family rooms are also available, affordably, so that any worry can be eliminated.

The city of Liverpool is chock-a-block with perfect itinerary fillers for all the family and the trick is to organise an activity or outing that would suit your children rather than you. If you’re travelling with kids of different ages, plan activities that suit each of them so that everyone can be satisfied with their city break.
If you’ve got footie mad lads (or girls!) in your family, a Liverpool FC museum and tour could excite and amaze them. Take a walk through the Player’s Tunnel and wander through the changing rooms where The Reds prepare for their matches. Spend some time in the museum, taking a look at the club’s history, too. The new season is also kicking off so if you’re in the city for a home game, it could be a perfect addition to your trip. If you’re travelling with your other half too, you may wish to cart them off to the match without you if you’re not into the beautiful game, so you can enjoy some quality time elsewhere.

Of course, not everyone is into football and even if they are, they may not support the Liverpool based teams. If thrills are more their scene, there’s plenty of adrenaline-fuelled adventures in and around the city, including indoor rock climbing that can keep them entertained and active for an afternoon. There’s also an awesome Go Ape course near Chester, just half an hour drive from Liverpool – perfect for kids of all ages (including the adult ones).
Of course, you don’t need to venture far from the city centre to enjoy your time as a family. With so many attractions available, you’ll all be spoilt for choice. If you have older kids, you may wish to introduce them to the music of The Beatles and there’s no better place to do so. The Beatles Story provides a magical mystery tour through their rock and roll career while the Cavern Club provides some cracking live music in a venue that introduced the group to the world.

Alternatively, you could make some time to see the various museums, including the World Museum that is home to various antiquities and treasures from around the world. On site, there’s also a free planetarium, whose state-of-the-art technology can bring your family one step closer to intergalactic wonders.

Plan your family-fuelled itinerary in advance and you could have great fun in Liverpool this summer.
