From riding the Baboon Bus through Knowsley Safari to visiting the award-winning Beatles Story Experience, Liverpool offers a little bit of everything - and then some - with stunning views across the Mersey. If you'd rather escape the chaos of the city then head to Crosby Beach, which spans three miles from the Port of Liverpool to the River Alt.
You’ll find plenty of spooky goings on at the Botanic Gardens this half term. Look out for man-eating plants, talking trees and a host of eerie characters – they’ll make you laugh or scream – or maybe both! You can also uncover botanical facts, make a spider’s web in the shape of a dream catcher - or catch a leaf creature.
Have a horribly haunted Halloween at the Dome (a venue long famous for its ghostly goings on!) in a unique night of cinema. Ghouls and vampires will give you a creepy welcome – then lurk in the shadows as you watch the film.
Why not make a weekend of your shopping and include the award-winning Beatles Story. Located in the Fab Four’s hometown, this is the world’s largest permanent exhibition purely devoted to the lives, times, culture and music of the Beatles. Replicas of the Casbah, Mathew Street and The Cavern authentically capture the very places that helped make one of the greatest bands ever.
