Accessible Days Out

FROM tourism to food and culture, Liverpool offers accessible days out in abundance. Working with Pro Rider Mobility we take a look at some of the best sights in the city for the whole family.

The Royal Albert Dock

Located in the heart of the city centre, the world-famous Royal Albert Dock offers treasures of its own. From art to food, the iconic world heritage site houses some of the most accessible and attractive places to visit in the country.

Starting with The Tate (currently running a Fernand Leger exhibition), the gallery offers hours of interest in its main and many free smaller exhibitions.

Following on from there, the dock houses some of the best restaurants available, from Gusto to What’s Cooking, there is something to everyone’s taste.

There are a range of businesses opening pop up shops at the dock for Christmas, including the luxury candle company Owen Drew, which is drumming up a lot of excitement internationally.

 

Ferry Across the Mersey

For a breath of fresh air, the ferry across the Mersey is a glorious experience. With spectacular views of Liverpool’s iconic waterfront and plenty of accessible areas, the attraction is one of the city’s most popular.

Take the ferry to The Wirral, and visit the multi award-winning Café Cream on New Brighton for a taste experience like no other, with their locally made ice cream, made using traditional Italian batch production methods.

The Dog Bowl Deli

For those with a pooch in the family, The Dog Bowl in St Helens is the perfect retreat. Treat your pup to something special with the dog café’s specially made food. From Pupcakes the chocolate eclairs, the fully licensed dog food café is the perfect location for a morning of fun.

After a cuppa for yourself and a feast for your best friend, let him take advantage of the bespoke training fields complete with obstacles or even their indoor doggy play area featuring a dancefloor and treehouse while you sit and relax.

While you’re there, it’s the perfect time of year to visit Rainford’s Christmas Tree Land. As well as trees, they stock enough decorations and Christmas treats to dazzle even the scrooges among us.

 

Chester Zoo

With 21,000 animals, more than 1.9 million people per year visit Chester Zoo. They promote full accessibility to ensure that all of their visitors are able to explore and enjoy the 125 acres of award winning zoological gardens.

Wrap up warm and take the whole family for a fun day out. Free parking is available as well as plenty of rest areas and on-site cafes for a quick refreshment.

Bold Street, Liverpool

Eat around the world in one street. This rising star of Liverpool is becoming more and more popular with its own annual dedicated festival, which sees thousands swarm each year to taste the delights on offer.

From Indian to Mexican, Bold Street is the now prime location for independent restaurants.

Italian Club Fish, which sits at the top of the street, is one of the region’s longest standing restaurants, run by its founding family.

The street also houses the original Mowgli, founded by Nisha Katona. The restaurant now has several sisters throughout the country.
