Liverpool John Lennon Airport Destinations

Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LPL) is a wonderful launchpad for holidays, leisure breaks and work trips. And if you’re looking for a comprehensive guide to LPL destinations, you’ve found it!

But if you’re only passing through Liverpool to catch your flight, stop right there. Because you should definitely bookend your trip with some time in this world-famous musical, sporting, and cultural city.

You might already know many of the mainstream Liverpool attractions. But there are lots of leftfield attractions you’ve possibly not heard of. For instance, there’s the Williamson Tunnels, a 19th Century labyrinth which was once an underground motorway for transporting goods in the city’s industrial heyday. It’s an eerie feeling descending to the depths and feeling the cold air as you slide past ancient brickwork and are swept back into the past.

And you can also visit the Bombed Out Church – frozen in time just as it was when the Blitz destroyed many Liverpool buildings during World War II. Seeing the bomb holes in the building is deeply moving, and you can step outside for some peaceful contemplation in the surrounding gardens afterwards.

If you’re into music, there’s one more mainstream hotspot you definitely shouldn’t miss – the Cavern Club. This famous underground venue is the place where The Beatles made their debut here and you can still have a few drinks here and enjoy first-rate live music practically any time of the day.

Now, how about a creepy attraction to send chills up your spine? Join a city ghost walk through Liverpool’s cobblestone streets, where expert guides will tell you uncanny stories from the past.

Meanwhile, St James' Cemetery is an elegant sanctuary away from the city’s hustle and bustle. There are lovely paths and green spaces, as well as monuments to some of Liverpool’s most famous residents.

For something a little different, visit ArCains Liverpool, a whole attraction dedicated to old school videogames – it’s fun for kids of all ages, but especially the 30+ variety.
