The Climbing Hangar in Liverpool

September 17, 2020 admin 0

#Gifted experience Last night we were invited to The Climbing Hangar at Matchworks in Liverpool. The boys have loved indoor climbing ever since our first experience a few years ago at Be Boulder and then again last year at our local centre Boulder Hut and were really looking forward to getting stuck in, especially as it feels like such a long time since we have ventured anywhere exciting due to lockdown.   The Climbing Hangar is in […]

Well this year we found the perfect thing to occupy some of that time. We went to Liverpool Cathedral to watch The Snowman Tour Live and it was the perfect way to extend the festive period, […]

Best bars in Liverpool

January 31, 2019 admin 1

I have written about Liverpool a few times because it quite simply is one of my all time favourite cities, which is helpful seen as though it is only 40 minutes up the road from us. I love Liverpool mainly for it’s diversity, there is literally something for everyone with so much choice from family days out, couple retreats, shopping trips and nights out, not to mention their abundance of cultural festivals and museums.   […]

Liverpool is one of my favourite cities because there is loads to see and do and there is always something new going on from Giant parades, to cultural festival,  and of course the Christmas markets (it’s also pretty instagramable too). As well as having loads to see and do there are also lots of lovely hotels in Liverpool and with 3 train stations it’s easily accessible for a day trip or weekend break. If you […]

Our first visit to VR-here Liverpool

November 27, 2018 admin 0

On Sunday we took the train over to Liverpool and enjoyed a lovely family day out. We started our day with a trip to VR-here Liverpool, which is located just outside of the city center in an industrial area but is within walking distance, even for little legs like those of the tiddler. We hadn’t told the boys where we were headed but as soon as they read the sign outside they were so excited […]

October 16, 2018 admin 0

Despite living here for the best part of 14 years we had never visited Spaceport or taken the ferry across the Mersey to Liverpool, although we had talked about doing it a few times, that is until this week when we combined both activities and had a fun filled, educational, family Sunday.   We headed over to Spaceport for 10 am when it opened, which I would recommend you do too if you decide to […]
