A Dose of Spring

A Dose of Spring

This has felt like a long winter: It rained, it snowed, we’ve had gales and 90mph winds.

Now the evenings are starting to get lighter we can feel that spring is just around the corner. It’s almost time to start living our lives outside again.

To get us in the mood for the warmer weather, tick off this list for spring in Liverpool this weekend.

 

See the daffodils at Sefton Park

As each of Liverpool’s parks come into bloom it’s a stirring sight. The cherry blossom will soon be here and there are already crocuses and snowdrops peeking above the ground. But it’s the daffodils, especially blanketed across the Field of Hope at Sefton Park, where thousands of daffodil bulbs are planted and ready to bloom.

 

Get back on your bike

Cycling doesn’t feel like much fun in the lashing wind and rain, but as the weather warms we can spend more time on two wheels. You can hire a bike from Liverpool’s Citybike scheme if you don’t have your own. Explore the best cycle routes in Liverpool, or just let the roads take you on an afternoon escape.

 

Be excited for LightNight

Matt Thomas Anglican Cathedral LN16 MT-1456 (1)

It’s one of our favourite Liverpool holidays, and LightNight often heralds the start of the warmer months for many of us. Do something different on a Friday night, this year Friday 19th May) as Liverpool’s galleries and museums open their doors until late. There’s over 100 free events to enjoy. Stay tuned at lightnightliverpool.co.uk

 

Join a walking tour

Make sure you hit those 10,000 steps a day by joining a walking tour or two. Not only will it get you out and about, it’ll also teach you plenty about Liverpool’s history.  From the Blitz to the Waterfront, the Beatles and the regeneration of Ropewalks, there’s loads to choose from. Start with Citywalks and go from there.

 

Head for the beer garden

OK, it’s no great hardship to be tucked inside a warm and cosy pub while it’s wet and cold, but there is something typically British about being able to enjoy a drink outdoors. You might still need to wrap up warm but we heartily recommend heading to some of our favourites, including Buyer’s Club, Constellations, Kazimier Gardens, Pumphouse at the Albert Dock or Oh Me Oh My’s, Goodness Gracious rooftop garden.
