Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Merseyside

Merseyside has five boroughs, but what you would really enjoy is Liverpool. A major city with many parks and well-preserved monuments, such as the Liverpool Cathedral, the Speke Hall Tudor Manor House, St. George's Hall, the Bluecoat Chambers, and many others, Liverpool is a magnet for tourists. One of the greatest things about Liverpool is the upbeat and active nightlife. Originating back from the Beatles era, Liverpool has been a major music center for more than fifty years, whose importance has grown and has made the city a major tourist destination for everyone who is interested in partying.

Liverpool is often regarded as the city with best nightlife in the UK, even ahead of London. It is also one of the best cities for pub crawling. It seems impossible not to have a blast in Liverpool, as there are pubs and nightclubs for any taste. Many local, alternative, and indi groups try to make it big, so you have come to the right place if you want to enjoy a rich cultural life. All this is garnered with many museums, galleries, and performances. Liverpool is also a very sporty city, with two of the most famous English teams – Liverpool F.C. and Everton F.C. Local. Football fans take the rivalry very serious, so it is advisable not to get into arguments concerning both teams.

Other interesting places to visit in Merseyside are the Knowsley Safari Park in Knowsley, the North West Museum of Road Transport in St Helens, the Southport Pier, longer than one kilometer, in Sefton, the North Wirral Coastal Park and the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum in Wirral. Honestly, there are not so many things to do and see in Merseyside outside Liverpool.

There are enough hostels in Merseyside, but you cannot find any hostels outside Liverpool. That is not something to regret, as the region is relatively small and you can easily travel from Liverpool to any point in Merseyside. So, if you want to travel within and visit more places in Merseyside,all you need to do is to book a hostel in Liverpool and travel around. It will be also cheaper because other accommodation options could be quite expensive. Even centrally located hostels in Liverpool are fairly expensive and only a few hostels, rather far from the city center, have lower prices.
