72 hours in Liverpool. #MarinaTravels
I don't think I've ever been to a city like Liverpool before. It's laid back, vibrant, beautiful and charming all at the same time. Liverpool is full of music, history, art, culture and good restaurants. Surprisingly, it is a rather small city compared to others like London. You can literally see Liverpool in a day if you are on a tight schedule like me. But of course, it's always better to stay for a few more days and take your time to savor what this city has to offer and create your own travel memories.
The Albert Dock and Riverside Area
The Beatles Story
Ticket price: Adult 16+:15.95 £ Children 5 - 15: 9.95£
Whether you are a die-hard Beatles fan that knows all of the songs and each member, or you've heard of them and their music(who has not?) but you are not yet quite familiar with them, now would be a good time for you to visit the famous Beatles Story Exhibition. After all, you've managed to come all the way to Liverpool, right? This permanent exhibition takes visitors on an atmospheric and immersive journey through Beatles' lives, rise to fame, cultural influences and their music. The exhibition also includes replicas of Abbey Road made famous by the Beatles, the Cavern Club where they performed and the recording studios from the sixties and much more.
World Museum, Central Library, Walker Art Gallery and St. John's Garden
Now you should definitely spend a day in Liverpool checking out all these museums and galleries mentioned above because they are all super close to one another. World Museum was unfortunately closed in preparation for Liverpool Fashion Show when I was there. But it is a large museum with an incredibly extensive collections covering archaeology, ethnology and the natural and physical sciences. The museum exterior was breathtakingly enough to look at and was the first thing that caught my eye when I got out of Liverpool Lime Street Station.
I didn't get the time to go inside Central Library and Walker Art Gallery as I would have liked, but I urge you and anyone that enjoy art and literature to go check it out!

Before we go, let me throw in a restaurant recommendation. Gusto Restaurant located conveniently at the Albert Dock where you can have a nice dinner while overlooking the riverside. I certainly had a wonderful time dining there. The fish dish and white wine were amazing!
Liverpool has evidently captured my heart with its chilled vibes, historical background, and beautiful architectures. 72 hours was clearly not enough for me to explore everything this incredible coastal city has to offer. Well, perhaps next time! Til then, I still got all these memories to reminisce over.
