Tilly Mint’s Trip to Liverpool

Yesterday hubby and I spent the day in Liverpool. Despite being a born and bred scouser, whenever I go to Liverpool, it is always to do some shopping. We therefore decided a cultural trip around the tourist bits of Liverpool was needed!

We started off in the Walker art gallery, with tea and cake followed by a browse around the artwork. My favourite bits were an exhibition of some art deco ceramics

And a William Morris piece

We then walked past St Georges Hall with the view of St Johns Beacon in the distance.

A little known fact is that my dad in the 1970s abseiled off the top of the beacon for a local charity. It is 138m tall and is the 32nd tallest building in the UK!

We then moved on to a Julie Arkell exhibition in the Bluecoat Display Centre

I had, by chance, only found out about the exhibition on Thursday, so I was delighted to be able to visit it!

We then made our way down to the Albert dock, somewhere I haven’t been since the regeneration and creation of the Museum of Liverpool. We explored the museum and took in the sights in the beautiful sunshine

I was pleased to find the Superlambananas have found good homes!

We finished the day with a few glasses of wine sat in the sunshine, followed by a lovely dinner. If any of you live close enough to Liverpool but haven’t explored further than the shops, I really encourage you to see the fantastic sights it has to offer!
