Free things to do in Liverpool

1. The Bluecoat

Stop by the Bluecoat, a beautiful historic building, and enjoy a cultural extravaganza from exhibitions to music, dance, and visual arts. It’s also a dynamic space for artists, so you may just happen upon the next big thing in the world of art.


2. Penny Lane

If you’re a Beatles fan, you’ll know the famous song Penny Lane, which is named after this street. Have a stroll, pick up some food, and if you’re a real fan, you can even stay the night at the Penny Lane hotel (that’s not free though, of course!).


3. Lambanana

Get a selfie by this unique Liverpool sculpture. It’s known as Lambanana, because it looks like half-lamb, half-banana.


4. Crosby Beach

Crosby Beach Liverpool

A short way out of Liverpool, Crosby Beach is the site of one of sculptor Antony Gormley’s (the artist behind the Angel of The North) most haunting works. A series of life-sized sculptures of human forms look out to sea, and as the tide comes in and goes out, some of the figures are visible as some disappear under the waves.


5. Wirral Coastline

An ancient expanse of countryside between the River Dee and River Mersey, explore the rolling hills and forests inland or head to the coast for sea views and watersports!


6. International Mersey River Festival

Take to the iconic Liverpool waterfront at the International Mersey River Festival in June, and spend a fun day watching jet skiing, air displays, tall ships and narrow boats and even get involved with some watersports yourself.
