Fun Things to do in Liverpool this Easter

With Easter rapidly approaching, you might be looking for fun things to do in Liverpool during the holiday period. The good news is, there’s plenty to keep all ages entertained in this bustling, vibrant and multicultural city. So here are five activities to add to your itinerary.

  1. A Trip to the Theatre

Did you know that The Tiger Who Came to Tea is currently on tour? Following a successful run in London’s West End, this fun-filled family show will be delighting audiences up and down the UK, reaching the Liverpool Playhouse Theatre in April. Packed with magic, sing-along songs and plenty of clumsy chaos, this production runs for approximately 55 minutes with no interval, and is perfect for children aged three upwards. Based on the much-loved children’s book of the same name written by Judith Kerr, this tiger tale is sure to make your little ones smile.

  1. Easter Egg Hunt in the Park

Liverpool is home to many beautiful parks. So how about arranging an outdoor Easter egg hunt and making the most of natural hiding spots such as the hollows in trees, or nooks in rocks? Calderstones Park located in South Liverpool is the perfect place for this thanks to its striking woodland area and fields. You could even make little clues to help the children locate each egg. The park stretches across 94 acres and boasts a picnic area and playground too, which the children can enjoy once all Easter eggs have been found.

  1. Blow the Cobwebs Away

Burn off some of those chocolate calories and blow those cobwebs away with a walk along Otterspool Promenade, again in South Liverpool. This offers beautiful views across the River Mersey and there are also hills nearby which are perfect for kite flying on a windy day. While the promenade itself is ideal for walking, rollerblading and biking, there are also plenty of greenspaces for picnics, as well as a children’s playground. If your kids like to skateboard, watch out for the sports hub where they can practice their skills.

  1. Visit a Museum

Activities in Liverpool don’t have to be expensive. In fact, getting out and about on a budget is surprisingly easy thanks to the city’s many free-to-enter attractions which include the Museum of Liverpool. This is the perfect place for the whole family to learn all about Liverpool’s vibrant past including a glimpse into the life and career of Liverpool’s most famous band - The Beatles. You could also head to the World Museum to explore the recently improved aquarium and the mind-blowing planetarium.

  1. Head to the Liverpool Central Library

The Liverpool Central Library is no ordinary library. With rows and rows of books, a discovery room for children and a host of storytelling themed days, the hours will fly by once you step inside. The Picton Reading Room is particularly impressive, looking like something you might find in the Harry Potter series. There’s also a cafe should you need refreshments, as well as a rooftop which offers exquisite city views.

For the best kids activities Liverpool this Easter, don’t forget to book those tickets to The Tiger Who Came to Tea and enjoy a day out to remember. And while you’re in the city, experience some of Liverpool’s top attractions.
