2) Old Dock

Visited the Old Dock? This hidden gem is a true piece of history. Located on Thomas Steers Way, the Old Dock was the world’s first commercial enclosed wet dock. Take a free tour and find out more about this interesting exploration into Liverpool’s past. Tours can be booked from Merseyside Maritime Museum or you can join a public tour on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10.30am, 12pm and 2.30pm. All tours are free but places are limited so booking is essential – call 0151 478 4499 to reserve your place! The Old Dock is also handily located right by Bill’s and Bierkeller so after your tour you can tuck into some great food and drinks. Why not try Bill’s delicious Flat Iron steak? With caramelised onions, chimichurri with smoky tomato, olive, red peppers and rocket salad and fries, this mouth-watering dish never fails to satisfy. Or why not grab a drink at Bierkeller? They have a huge selection of beers you can enjoy in authentic German steins. Plus, on Fridays and Saturdays they have live oompah band shows! Book a table at Bill’s and Bierkeller now.

4) World Music Day

It’s World Music Day on 21 June, a day dedicated to celebrating the universal language of music! Join in the celebrations by signing up to one of our fantastic music programmes: Tickle The Ivories or Busking. Organised in partnership with Open Culture, our much loved Tickle The Ivories piano festival returns for its seventh outing from 7 July-4 September 2017. Our 2016 festival was a huge success and saw everyone from solo classical pianists to school choirs to Darth Vader himself taking part! Whether you’re a professional player or an amateur, we want you – sign up here. Alternatively, sign up to our Busking programme! Liverpool is a city bursting with musical talent and we love offering performers the space to light up our streets.  Of course, you can just sit back, grab an ice cream and be entertained!

5) Al Fresco Dining

When the sun makes an appearance, there’s only one thing to do – breakfast, lunch and dinner al fresco style! In addition to our range of terraces, roof gardens and seating areas, Liverpool ONE has tons of top-notch restaurants that offer takeaway options including Wahaca, Yard & Coop, Five Guys, Turtle Bay and more. Grab a tasty burrito from Barburrito and enjoy it in our beautiful picnic boats. Found on College Lane and School Lane, our picnic boats are the perfect place to relax and enjoy your food with friends. If you like your picnics a little bit more relaxed, grab a juicy burger from Five Guys and head to the Green House Steps on Thomas Steers Way or Chavasse Park, found at the top of the stairs. Both offer a great space to soak in the sun and enjoy music from our talented buskers.
