Free Things to do in Liverpool

This weekend was my maiden voyage to Liverpool and I had an amazing thrifty weekend exploring the city.

I completely fell for it, so here's my top five free things to do with the snaps I took on my phone along the way:

1. Liverpool Central Library

Incredible newly refurbished library with panoramic views from the rooftop terrace and an incredible reading room that looks like something out of Harry Potter.

2. Walker Gallery

Conveniently located next door to the library. Has a great blend of old and modern art, something for everyone.

3. Liverpool World Museum

Dinosaurs, a planetarium, a 5th floor cafe with a stunning view, a man who makes life-like model birds out of peanuts and cotton wool (!), an aquarium and great exhibitions of world culture.

4. Albert Docks

Incredible juxtaposition of new and old, amazing views, tall ships, restaurants and bars galore.

5. Liverpool Maritime Musuem

Fascinating exhibits, Titanic replicas and even a u-boat sinking missile!

If you ever get the chance to go, do! Although there's much more to it than The Beetles, I can't help leaving you with this amazing jelly bean art...
