I'll be 5 days in Liverpool, what to see?
I'm coming to liverpool next week, and i have some ideas about what to see, (pier,town centre, cathedral, the tate art gallery, the cavern and some of the indie clubs in the night) but in 2 days that is over... any other ideas, is there any festival, cinemas, what? any idea is accepted, thanks ps i dont wanna do the beatles tour...so yeah do not mention it lol
If you can see the sights of Liverpool in two days you are a very quick sightseer and a fast mover. London 2012 material,haha.
Liverpool has a lot of attractions, and some, like Sefton Park and the Palm House, and the whole area of Albert Docks, can take up a day each easily..
The World Museum has four floors of exhibits, a planetarium and an aquarium.
The Walker Art Gallery can be walked around in an hour but you wouldn't see much in that time. Half a day could easily go by in there.
The big festival has just gone but there is always a large selection of events in the city and in neighbouring Southport.

The two cathedrals are worth visiting. Totally different styles and both very impressive inside. The Catholic Bishop is Paddy Kelly and because of it's shape his cathedral is known as 'Paddy's Wigwam'.
The inside looks better than the outside, with beautiful light inside, due to the design of the roof.
There is more coloured and stained glass in the Cathedral than in any other in Europe

The bells of the Anglican Cathedral are the highest in the world and the whole peal of bells is the heaviest in the world. The Cathedral is the fifth largest in the world.Also try to hear the organ, either during a service or at one of the concerts held there.
It's an audio lover's dream! What a sound!
There is a huge space to fill and that wonderful organ fills it with power to spare. It has thousands of pipes. It is one of the world's finest organs.

The view from the top of the Cathedral is good too...well worth going up.
Hope Street links the Cathedrals and has the Art Deco Philharmonic Hall, home of the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and the grand and beautiful Philharmonic Pub diagonally across the crossroads from there, with original Victorian toilets, stained glass windows, beautiful woodwork, a carved eagle over the bar, and little snugs with names like Brahms and Schubert. Musicians in coat tails and bow ties mix with the rest of the clientele during interludes in the concerts. Brass and woodwind players especially want to wet their lips a little......
Be prepared if you're in the back for a call of nature...you might get a bus load of mixed-sex tourists popping their heads in for a look at the tiling. Ladies often look in the gents to see the ornate Victorian tiling and the brass and copper fittings.
The washbasins in the ladies are made of rose marble on teak stands.
There are loads of links on the answer here for Liverpool sights.
It is for a tight-budget visit so some may be be irrelevant to you.

The National Wildflower Collection is a bus ride from Liverpool and makes a lovely day out

A trip on the train to Southport may be nice for you. It's a lovely place which you can get to in 30 minutes on the train from Liverpool Central or Moor Street which is cheapest with a Saveaway ticket.
There's plenty to fill five days around Liverpool. Enjoy it...Liverpool is fun.
Look at the number of positive responses on this from Liverpool people, and at the top for an idea of the new investment Liverpool has.
It's a great city.
