Albert Dock, the Beatles and Organic Food in Liverpool

A few weeks ago, I went on a day trip to Liverpool with a coursemate. It was very spontaneous, and even though I love planning trips the day was just perfect. We discovered the city without rushing (unlike we are used to do in our everyday lives!) and taking our time for walking around and stopping for afternoon tea. Here are some of the best shots from the day!
Bold Street was our first stop. It's a very unique street with quirky shops, cafes and more. I especially liked a shop that sold salt lamps, incense, Buddha statues and more zen-themed decorations. Definitely worth stopping by this street if you ever go to Liverpool!

Then, it was time for a walk in the centre. The main streets aren't different from most English towns, with the classic shops and chains of cafes. Christmas decorations had just started to be put up though, which made it a bit more special.

Walking alongside the dock was beautiful, but also freezing! It felt as if it was going to start snowing at any time...




The Beatles...
... and Elvis
Liverpool Town Hall

Although I'm not a big fan of the Beatles, we thought it was a must to go and see the Cavern Quarter. The pub in the picture below is where the Beatles played and quickly became famous. 

If you look close at the bricks, you'll see names of singers and celebrities!
Our final stop was tea, as I mentioned, which was really good. We stopped at an organic cooperative (LIV Organic & Natural Food Market) on Bold Street and had Christmas and English Breakfast tea, and vegan Victoria sponge cake and scones. I always find this to be the highlight of the day when I'm travelling!
I hope you enjoyed my post. Please let me know if you know any hidden place in Liverpool - I'd love to go back one day!

Have you ever been to Liverpool?

  1. Ahh, Liverpool was a place we missed when we went to England! Of course I would've LOVED to have gone there! The Cavern Club looked awesome and I love the statues of the Beatles :-)

    1. Aww Lor! Liverpool is really cool, although my favourites are little Southern towns :)
