Out on the lash in Liverpool

When they finally lerrus out, I have various long-range piss-ups planned, one of which is a pub-crawl round Liverpool - a city I'd like to know better.

Where to drink, where to visit, where to eat, and where to sit around and watch the world go by. Advice from those in the know gratefully received

A bit obvious, but the Philharmonic is a must.

There's loads of pubs round the Beatles ex-haunts with gazillions of Scandinavians for some reason. Live music and so on.

Try the Caradoc, OK it is Bootle but as well as beers and wines you can get a colour telly, a laptop, basically anything that can be nicked can be nicked to order.

Yes that street need the Cavern is bar central.

Matthew Steet I think.

I definately want to see the Cavern

Also the docks. I like the idea of drinking a pint on the seafront. Can you actually do that?

There are alot of places to eat on the Albert Dock plus one or two pubs. The Pump House doesn't have a seaview but is at the entrance to the Docks.

It's the Mersey.

Lovely views of Birkenhead and Camell Lairds shipyard.

I'll take that, after two months of lockdown in the Stroud Valley

#1: In the Philharmonic Hall / There are nudies on the wall.

The Cavern isn't the original one, as the bouncers tell everyone.

I'm surprised how calm the place is. It used to be bedlam in the eighties (but I mainly did skid row and Stairways in Birkenhead, which could be tasty at chucking out time too).

There's a fantastic chippie in the city centre.

We went to Liverpool last summer mainly to go to the Keith Haring exhibition.

It is a great city for a weekend. The Heorgian quarter has some great bars and restaurants. We found an interesting little taproom down by the docks. As mentioned the Philharmonic pub by the Cathedral is brilliant, really beautifully decorated.

ReverendBJ - the Lobster Pot?

Don't forget the cathedrals. There must be pubs with a cathedral view.

Many years ago I visited The Vines once or twice on brief day trips, and thought it great - architecture and as a pub. On a recent trip it was closed for renovation, and tripadvisor suggests it had gone downhill quite a bit. Could people please advise - Liverpool is on the visit list once the plague lifts.

The Baltic Fleet is at the front, and a nice pub, but has it's view blocked.

City Centre (business district) :



Hope street area, and downwards towards the city centre:





(Can you tell I've planned for visitors before? also for pub crawls)
