Museum of Liverpool

Since we had a busy day of sightseeing planned we hurried to up the stairs to the top floor to view the Double Fantasy exhibition. The exhibit shows how John Lennon and Yoko Ono used their fame and influence to campaign for peace and human rights across the world, transforming not only their own lives, but art, music and activism forever.

The exhibit features personal objects alongside art, music and film produced by both John and Yoko, the exhibition is drawn from Yoko’s own private collection, some of which has never been displayed.

The Museum of Liverpool is free admission, then exhibit is also free entry and will be available till April 22, 2019.

Cavern Quarter

Stop by the world-famous Cavern Club for live music and drinks to enjoy where The Beatles first performed.

There is multiple different bars and museums that are Beatles themed all along Mathew Street and ending at the Hard Days Night Hotel.

Enjoy a massive burger!

Almost Famous 11-13 Parr St, Liverpool L1 4JN, UK

After a long day of walking enjoying a burger will hit the spot! Take a look at their menu, if you find yourself not being able to choice just one thing, my suggestion is the Triple Nom (it’s delicious!)

Antiquing

Start the day by antiquing at Red Brick Vintage, you will absolutely fall in love with this antique market, its enormous! There is plenty of retro & vintage furniture and clothing, I purchased a 1960’s ceramic serving bowl for only a few pounds, but I did wish I had brought a larger carry-on!

After a long day of shopping, you’ll find multiple restaurants surrounding the market.

Before you go, make sure to take a picture with this bright yellow sculpture! This sculpture is the most popular and instantly recognizable pieces due to the height and color! You can find more of these sculptures along side the Museum of Liverpool in miniature sizes and different color patterns.
