Our first recommendation is the Merseyside Maritime Museums which exhibits the untold story of the Titanic and its link to Liverpool.

Then, next door to Mann Island is the Museum of Liverpool. Visit this museum to learn all about Liverpool. In addition, the World Museum brings Liverpool heritage to life.

Most of the museums based in Liverpool are pretty much free, apart from Tate Liverpool’s paid-for exhibitions. However, the rest of the gallery is free to enter.

For Beatles fans, the Beatles story museum should be at the top of your list. The museum is dedicated to John, Paul, Ringo and George. Look over the history of the Fab Four, from their early years, international breakthroughs, break up and their solo careers. Watch videos and go through the band’s image archives.

As you can see, this is a snapshot of some of the museums that you can visit around this area.

Besides museums, there are other things to do and see around The Royal Albert Docks. Whilst here, you may decide to just soak up the beautiful waterfront scenery and watch the Mersey Ferry pass you by.

Or, the other option is to climb onboard this 50-minute river explorer. You will be guided through the captivating history of UNESCO World Heritage waterfront, which includes the Three Graces - the Liver Building, the Pier Head and Cunard Building.

All Three Graces stand boldly next to Mann Island. These picturesque locations are perfect for that Instagram shot and are proud emblems of Liverpool.

The Royal Liver building opened in 1911 has two iconic Liver birds at the top. This building became one of the first major constructions in the whole of Britain. Furthermore, the Cunard building was built between 1914 and 1917. The building hosts the headquarters of Cunard Cruise Line. Why not book the Mersey Ferry and take advantage of this sightseeing experience?

If you are feeling a little bit hungry whilst on your Royal Albert Docks adventure, do not worry. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants to choose from, such as the Dockside Dining Club that offers a variety of street food that caters to all, from meat lovers to vegans.

Take a stroll down to Liverpool One, which is a shopping district with high street and high-end shops. If you get thirsty or hungry, no need to worry - Liverpool One hosts amazing restaurants and bars to choose from.

On the other side of town is Liverpool’s Chinatown, which was actually the first to be established in Europe. Whilst in this area, head over to see the largest Chinese Arch in Europe, which was made by craftsmen in Shanghai. You can also explore Chinese and pan-Asian restaurants, as well as Chinese supermarkets.  

Only a few minutes’ walk away is the bombed-out church. Take time out to look at this historic monument - the church was bombed during the Second World War and when the church is open you can go in and marvel at its architecture.

If you still have some more time on your hands, you must visit the fifth largest cathedral in the world, Liverpool Cathedral. Step into this mesmerising building, it will surely take your breath away and if you are thinking of popping the question, this is the perfect place to do so.

To end the day, catch a glimpse of the sunset at one of the surrounding beaches such as Formby, Crosby, Ainsdale and many more. The perfect ending to the perfect day.

When you visit Liverpool, you have a variety of locations to choose from. You might decide to come again for one day or for a longer period. You might even choose to move to Liverpool and, if you do, Mann Island has apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms.
