"The Albert Dock is home to some of the city's most impressive attractions"

1. The Panoramic

Liverpool has an abundance of well-reputed eateries to choose from, but few can boast the views that this place can. Set 34 floors up, the name The Panoramic says it all - incredible uninterrupted views across the city, river and surrounding landscape. The food is good, too, with recommendations in both the Good Food and Michelin guides, and the likes of scallops with suckling pig tortellini and apple panacotta on the menu.

2. Mersey Ferries

There are some things that, however obvious, are a must-do in this city - and taking a ferry 'cross the Mersey, complete with singalong, is one of them. It's the best way to see the world-famous Pier Head waterfront, which, thanks to its three stunning Edwardian buildings and other historic areas of the city, qualifies Liverpool as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

3. Liverpool ONE

Shopping isn't a new pastime to Liverpool, but ONE has certainly revolutionised the experience. Costing £1bn and with 42 acres of retail wonderland, it features big brand names as well as smaller boutiques.

5. Aintree

If you only see one sporting event in Liverpool, there's little to compare with the history and prestige of the Grand National. First held in 1839, Aintree's biggest event now attracts 600 million television viewers.
