Liverpool- including the Terracotta warrior exhibition and ‘Another Place’ at Crosby beach

This Easter I ventured ‘up north’ to Liverpool

I’d been before so had already taken in some of the ‘must do’ sights of the Albert Dock, The Beatles Story Museum, shopping at Liverpool One, taking a ferry across The Mersey, seeing the Liver Building and of course sampling a beer in The Cavern Club.

This visit I stayed at Jury’s Inn, right on the waterfront at Albert Dock next to The Liverpool big wheel and The Echo Arena. Although it doesn’t have its own car park public parking is available less than 10 minutes walk away and cost £15 for 24 hours. The hotel is modern, clean and comfortable. We had lunch in the restaurant bar which served a range of items but more towards burgers and pizzas. Breakfast had a good range of hot and cold dishes on the buffet and was served until 11am (useful after a night out!)

We had pre purchased tickets for the Terracotta warrior exhibition at the World Museum, pre booking is absolutely necessary as there were no tickets available on the day. Timed entrance tries to ensure your visit is more enjoyable as you are able to see the exhibits with fewer crowds, although it was still very busy.

 

The exhibits were very interesting and I can only imagine what it must be like to see the vast excavations in China- must be awesome, it’s certainly now added to my ‘bucket list’.  The exhibition is only in the UK until October.

We then braved the Great British Bank Holiday weather and went to the seaside at Crosby to see the eerie ‘Another Place’ by artist  Anthony Gormley.

Another Place is an art installation on the coast. 100 spectacular cast-iron, life-size figures  spread across three metres of the foreshore and stretch almost one kilometre out to sea. The Another Place figures – each one weighing 650 kilos – are made from casts of the artist’s own body standing on the beach, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon in silent expectation.(VisitSouthport)
