Drinking In Liverpool On UK Tours
June 7, 2011, 16:23
After being crowned the 2008 Capital of Culture, Liverpool has becoming a staple-stop on all good UK tours. The city’s popularity among tourists has never been higher, mostly thanks to its rich musical, sporting and colonial heritage.
Most tourists tend to stick to the obvious places for a drink on their UK tours in Liverpool, such as The Philharmonic and The Cavern. First-timers on UK Tours to Liverpool will find these pubs more than satisfy their drinking needs.
However, some are looking for great places to drink that aren’t be full of camera-happy tourists. Here is a guide for getting a few pints at establishments off the beaten track in the Liverpool area.
The Blob Shop
Directly in front of the Liverpool St Johns Centre you will find a little pub called The Blob Shop. The pub’s got a cracking atmosphere and is busy from opening to close seven days a week.
It’s also among the cheapest venues you will visit on your UK tours of Liverpool.
Located just off Hardman Street, it is pubs such as The Grapes that provide the infrastructure in which Liverpool’s unique culture thrives. There is no reason why you can’t expect to see a live folk band in this pub on any night of the week. The pub is at its busiest on a Sunday, which is jazz night – so you should arrive early if you want a good spot at the bar.
The Baltic Fleet
Those with a penchant for real ale should make the Baltic Fleet their haunt when on UK tours of Liverpool. If you are looking for games machines, loud music and pool tables then look elsewhere. If you are after a fantastic range of ale, good conversation and friendly locals then this is the place to you. The pub is named so because its front end resembles the bow of a ship.
