You can find lots of information about things to do and see in Liverpool on the Visit Liverpool website. We have selected a few highlights to share with you.
Things to do
Liverpool has something for everyone. Whether you are interested in history, music, sport or the arts, you are sure to find something to do during some well deserved free time.

To get a good overview of the city we suggest taking a Multilingual City Bus Tour. You can book your tickets online or from the bus driver, and the tour starts a short walk from the ACC Liverpool in Gower Street. Buses run every half an hour from 10am to 3.30pm.

For the Beatles fans amongst you, there is the a range of places to visit right across the city. There are walking tours, bus tours, museums, landmarks and places to eat and drink, all inspired by the Fab Four. If you're short of time then head to the Beatles Statue to get your photo taken with the group, it's only 12 minutes' walk away.

There's no need to worry about spending lots of money whilst seeing all that Liverpool has to offer, Visit Liverpool have put together a list of 50 FREE Things to do in Liverpool. There are parks, museums, galleries, photo opportunities and much more in this extensive list, and many are within walking distance of the ACC Liverpool.
Places to eat
The Visit Liverpool Food & Drink page breaks down the list by bars, restaurants, cafes and pubs so you can easily find the kind of atmosphere and price range you are looking for. By doing a search within the Liverpool World Heritage Site you will see a list, or map, of the places closest to the ACC Liverpool.

Don't forget, you'll be able to purchase your lunch from one of the three catering areas within the Exhibition. You will find a range of hot and cold options and some special deals. We'll also be serving free tea and coffee in the Exhibition throughout the Conference.
Getting around Liverpool
Much of Liverpool city centre is accessible on foot but, if you'd rather take the weight off and make use of the public transport, you are not short of options.

The main bus station, Liverpool ONE, is a 10 minute walk from the ACC Liverpool where buses run regularly to all areas of the city. Ticket options range from singles to week-long passes. Staff at the bus station, or on one of the buses, will be able to help you choose the best value ticket for your journey.

If you want to travel a little further afield, you may like to take the train from one of Liverpool's four city centre stations. Trains are operated by Merseyrail, one of the UK's top performing rail operators. Services are frequent and tickets can be purchased online or from the station.

You might like to take a ferry across the Mersey to see Liverpool from a new angle. Ferries depart once an hour from the Pier Head and are run by Mersey Ferries. Tickets can be bought from the ferry terminal or at a discounted price online, group offers and joint deals with other attractions are available.

For the more active amongst you, bicycles are available to hire from a number of city centre locations through City Bike Liverpool. You will need to register online first, for either one day or one week, and then simply visit one of the many stations to collect a bike using the membership number and PIN provided. You can then return the bike to any station, there's even one located on the riverside next to the ACC Liverpool.

There are a large number of taxi firms within the city of Liverpool and whilst we don't have one in particular to recommend, you can visit Guest Relations at the ACC Liverpool or Reception at the Jurys Inn Hotel and the staff there will help you to book your journey.
