11am – Famous Docks and Waterfront
You cannot visit Liverpool and not see the famous waterfront and docks. There are so many attractions in this area of the city from Albert Dock, Salthouse Archway, The Beatles statue, Royal Liver building, Freiji Wheels and many more. A very photographic donut van that sits long the Canning Dock is preferred for a snack to keep you going until your next meal.

Before you head back to your apartment, why not visit…..
10:30pm – The Berry and Rye Pub
Why not finish the day with a few drinks at one of Liverpool’s hidden gems, The Berry and Rye. Their drinks menu just keeps going!
The Berry and Rye is a themed bar specialising in whiskey, blues, jazz and gin. This bar goes to lengths to stick to the prohibition theme and it’s ever so impressive. The menus are hidden away in bibles etc around the bar making it hard to find- many people only hear about this bar from another person.
You’ll find the bar on Berry Street, Liverpool L1 4JQ.
