Hang out on Bold Street
Liverpool is an entirely walkable city that’s best travelled on foot, allowing explorers to peek down cobbled back alleys in search of street art and encounter independent cafés on every second corner. If you’re staying in the city centre, make sure to investigate the Ropewalks district. Back in the 18th century, the area’s main thoroughfare, Bold Street, was used by sailors to measure out rope for ships. Today, the road is packed with vintage digs, independent shops and some excellent cafés. Starting at what Scousers call the Bombed Out Church (the burnt out shell of St Luke’s that regularly hosts farmers’ markets and yoga sessions), take a stroll past vinyl stores and artisan bakeries, stopping for refreshments wherever takes your fancy.
