Fresh sea breezes, world-class musical heritage and a thriving cultural scene are just some of the many enticing reasons to take a trip from London to Liverpool. As you touch down at Liverpool John Lennon Airport, take in the beauty of where the River Mersey joins the Irish Sea, forming a natural harbour that put this port town on the map long before its beloved Beatles rose to fame. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, ‘the Pool’ boasts a myriad of well-preserved historical buildings that bring the past to life. This lively city is also embracing the present with open arms, with an exciting and ever-expanding dining and events scene.
Liverpool is a popular destination all year round. From spring until autumn the city hosts a multitude of events and festivals, from the free Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF) in July to the Liverpool Comedy Festival in late September. During the rest of the year, football is one of the main attractions – and fortunately for footie fans, cheap flights to Liverpool from London are more readily available in the winter months.
Although you won’t find any direct London-Liverpool flights, there’s a whole host of inexpensive options to get to Liverpool from every London airport. Flybe offers connecting flights from Heathrow and London City Airport via Belfast, while British Airways flies from Heathrow, Gatwick and City via Dublin. A popular alternative is to fly with British Airways from Heathrow to nearby Manchester, and then travel on to central Liverpool via train.
