There’s a new national TV campaign to get people to stay in England for their holidays this year, but we at One Park West suggest that there is no need to look any further than Liverpool! Here’s a few examples of some of the exciting things that you can get involved with over the next couple of months…
Let’s start with St Patrick’s Day – always a big celebration in Liverpool! There are so many pubs and clubs celebrating that you are sure to have a great night out, but if you fancy doing something a bit different, why not pop down to the Museum of Liverpool, where there is a free exhibition celebrating the links between Liverpool and Ireland. Music will be performed in the museum’s atrium and Irish themed food will also be served in the Waterfront cafe all weekend. Why not pop along for a steak and Murphy’s stout pie!
If you’re not suffering too much after the Paddy’s Day celebrations, don’t forget to treat your dear ol’ ma on Mother’s Day!? What better way to pamper her than with a three-course-lunch at the beautiful Isla Gladstone Conservatory in Stanley Park? If that’s not your Mum’s style, what about a special brunch whilst partying with the gospel choir at Alma de Cuba – a real Latin American experience?
If you’re a fan of the healthier lifestyle, why not join in with the Liverpool half marathon (or just go along to cheer) on the 18th March, it’s a great way to look around this wonderful city and enjoy the views along the docks as well as the stunning Grade II* listed Princes Park, Sefton Park and Otterspool Park. We will be cheering along the brave participants from our balconies at One Park West.
Liverpool is also the place to be for any culture vultures; we have the Walker Art Gallery, The Bluecoat, Williamson Art Gallery, and yes, The Tate! Those looking for something a little more ‘high brow’ (or should we now suggest Scousebrow) we would be happy to suggest any of the comedy nights, plays and exhibitions that are good enough to attract visitors from across the world. Witness the magic of Madame Butterfly or La Traviata at the Empire Theatre and visit the gallery that houses The Art Books of Henri Matisse for the first time in the UK.
Music has always made a massive impact in Liverpool (not only The Beatles…) and we have brilliant venues for a range of gigs. At one end of the spectrum we have a Bruce Springsteen Tribute act at The Cavern and at the other our famous philharmonic orchestras. It’s even rumoured that JLS are coming to perform at the Echo Arena this month.
Any way you want to look at it, Liverpool is the home of great football, excellent bars, brilliant architecture and gorgeous people! So I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be than in my swish and stylish apartment at One Park West!
