If you’re a University of Liverpool, LJMU or Hope student, you will know what a fantastic city you live in.

And, as one of the most popular cities in the UK, it is absolutely packed with exciting tours, incredible events and stunning venues.

But which are the best attractions in Liverpool?

We take a look at the top ten things to do, according to TripAdvisor.

1. Liverpool Cathedral

Liverpool cathedral

Where?: St James Road, Liverpool, L1 7AZ
How much?: Free

A stunning piece of architecture mixed with some really culturally-fascinating pieces. Take, for example, the neon glow at one end of the church which eminates from a piece of Tracey Emin artwork. The oddly-placed, neon pink sign reads ‘I felt you and I knew you loved me’. It’s just one little bit of intrigue among hundreds at the cathedral.

2. Anfield Stadium

Where?: Anfield Road, Merseyside, Liverpool, L4 0TH
How much?: Tickets from £9 to £59

With more than 50,000 fans screaming on their side, Liverpool FC’s Anfield Stadium is a huge part of the city’s identity. The Scouse fans are known to be among the most passionate in the country and with Jurgen Klopp’s men thrilling with attacking football, now is a great time to make the trip.

3. Sightseeing tours

Liverpool Cycle Tours Penny Lane

Where?: Liverpool city centre
How much?: Costs change depending on the tour

Hop on a bike or go on foot and explore this wonderful city. You’ll be able to find a tour to suit your passion but one of our favourites is the Liverpool Cycle Tours’ The Beatles Tour. Head on over to Penny Lane and the famous haunts of the Fab Four.

4. Liverpool Central Library

Where?: William Brown St, Liverpool, L3 8EW
How much?: Free

How many libraries boast a free-to-use Xbox 360? It’s one of the many things that make Liverpool Central Library more than a quiet place to read books. There’s 150 public computers and wi-fi everywhere. It’s the perfect place to revise (apart from the very distracting Xbox, obviously).

5. Maritime Museum

6. Casbah Coffee Club

Where?: Casbah Coffee Club, 8 Haymans Green, West Derby Village, Liverpool, L12 7JG

It’s the birth place of The Beatles and therefore a must for any music fan. During the early 1960s, the band played there as The Silver Beatles with Pete Best on drums. Best was later moved on for Ringo Starr but still plays at the CCC.
