As anyone who has ever visited the city can attest to, Liverpool is home to a range of sightseeing hotspots each of which provide tourists and even lifelong residents with unmissable spectacular views of the city and beyond.

No visit to Liverpool is complete without taking in some of these incredible sights which is why we have compiled a list of some of the best views of Liverpool. With views stretching far and wide, you don’t want to miss an opportunity to head to these locations.

Everton Park

Everton Park

Don’t let the name distract you. Everton Park may possess some resemblance to Liverpool Football Club’s local rivals but it’s here where you will be treated to some of the best possible views of the city. Best of all, the LFC City Explorer bus even visits here!

Created in the early 1980s, this elevated park allows you to look down at Liverpool’s famous skyline. Catch panoramic views of iconic landmarks such as the Radio City Tower, Anglican Cathedral and Royal Liver Building. A perfect place to walk the dog or host a picnic during the summer months.

New Brighton

New Brighton

Ferry across the River Mersey and you’ll come across New Brighton, a seaside resort popular with Merseysiders. During its early history this town was initially known for its smuggling and wrecking reputation (some say the secret underground cellars and tunnels exist to this day!), but has since developed into a hotspot for a chilled day out.

Head to New Brighton beach and you’ll be able to witness incredible views across the water looking towards the famous Liverpool waterfront. When it comes to special displays and visits from huge cruise ships, you’ll struggle to find a more magnificent location to watch from afar.

River Mersey Ferry Cruise

River Mersey Ferry Cruise

Fancy getting a tad closer than New Brighton beach? Skip the land experience and go all out with a ferry cruise across the River Mersey. This option allows you to get more up close and personal with the waterfront landmarks while enjoying a lovely breeze.

The daily explorer cruises last nearly an hour and feature onboard commentary from an experienced tour guide. A cafe is available serving hot drinks and refreshments while indoor and outdoor seating is provided.  Disembark at one of three terminals to explore more of what Liverpool and the Wirral has to offer.

Anglican Cathedral Tower

Not only is the Anglican Cathedral one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings with incredible history and architecture, but it is also the third tallest building in the city. Take the unmissable Tower Experience for an exclusive open-air 360˚ panoramic tour of Liverpool and beyond.
