Attractions in Liverpool

You may be in Liverpool for the footie or a festival but, if you can find the time, you should definitely take in some of the city’s top attractions. From historic buildings to world-class museums, there are just so many to choose from, and most are within easy walking distance of the centre, too. Sightseeing’s even easier if you’re staying at a Premier Inn in Liverpool – there’s one close to all the city’s must-sees so you can pack even more into your busy city break.

Superlambanana

If you were ever in doubt of the city’s quirky sense of humour, head to the Super Lamb Banana statue. As public monuments go, this is up there with the craziest. Half-sheep, half-banana and designed by Japanese artist Taro Chiezo in 1998, it shouldn’t be missed. In fact, you almost certainly can’t miss it, seeing as it’s bright yellow, 17-feet high and weighs in at seven and a half tonnes. It is both a comment on the dangers of genetic engineering, and a nod to Liverpool’s past – both bananas and sheep were brought here as cargo. But whatever it’s meant to be, it’s now firmly a part of the Liverpool skyline.
