Christmas in Liverpool

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Our world-famous waterfront has been enjoying a full roster of Christmas fun taking place amongst the iconic Three Graces and historic Albert Dock, against the stunning backdrop of the sparkling lights across the River Mersey. Stuck for what to do with those seemingly endless days of leftover turkey and stuffing sandwiches and back-to-back Christmas movies? Check out our Top 5 Activities for the whole family…


1. Take a Stroll Around the Royal Albert Dock Light Trail

In what has become a yearly spectacle the Royal Albert Dock has once again lit up for the festive season. Alongside the now permanent fixture of over 1 million lights adorning the iconic columns, visitors can follow the ‘Feels Like Christmas’ light trail to discover sculptures of light including the famous Liver Birds Bella and Bertie, and other well known symbols of the city such as the Yellow Submarine.

2. Visit Liverpool Cathedral

A constant feature looking over the city, the Grade 1 Listed Liverpool Cathedral is the fifth-largest Cathedral in the world. Entry is free to take a look around the vast interior and if you are lucky enough you might just catch a choir service or musical event while you are there. For those who want to know more, tours are available costing from £5.50 and under, giving visitors access to the rooftop and city views from Liverpool’s 4th highest building.

3. Candlelight Concerts at St George’s Hall

For a real special treat why not take yourself off to the magnificent St George’s Hall for one of their famous Candlelight Concerts? Offering themes to suit all ages throughout the year, to top off December tickets are available for Candlelight Kids- Magical Soundtracks and for a later performance, Candlelight- Hans Zimmers Best Works.

4. Take a Walk Around Croxteth Park

If you’re looking for a change of scenery from the City Centre, we’re lucky to have the historic Croxteth Park grounds just a stones throw away. Perfect for wrapping up and taking a leisurely winter stroll.

5. Enjoy White Christmas at the Liverpool Empire

Make the most of the last of the Christmas season with a visit to the Liverpool Empire to watch the season classic White Christmas, with tickets available from £13.
