How I spend a Sunday in Liverpool

Ahh Sunday, the day of rest. I love nothing more than to lie around on a Sunday and do absolutely nothing but watch tv and eat all the junk food. Sometimes though, I get the urge to get out there and do something with my day. I’ve lived in Liverpool for just under a year now and I think it’s the perfect city to spend a Sunday in. There’s always some event going on, a new coffee shop to people watch in, or a new store to browse. Here, I’ve put together a guide on how to spend a Sunday in Liverpool. Hopefully you’ll find something that’ll inspire you to enjoy your Sunday!

Brunch

Brunch is life and quite possibly one of my favourite weekend activities (although let’s be honest, brunch is good any day of the week). In Liverpool, brunch is becoming increasingly popular and you’ll find more and more places serving up delicious pancakes and eggs benedict. Here are some of my favourite places to spend a few hours with friends eating delicious food.

  • Brunch Club @ Duke Street
  • Moose Coffee @ Hope Street
  • Lock and Key @ Duke Street
  • East Avenue Bakehouse @ Bold Street
  • Tavern Club  @ Smithdown Road

Visit markets

Anyone else love strolling through markets? Every sunday at the Baltic Market, they have market stalls selling homemade bath bombs, jewellery and all the baked goods your heart could desire. Next door is Red Brick Hanger, a vintage treasure trove that always has something new to discover. Finally, every third Sunday of the month, the Marker’s Market takes over Hope Street. There’s people selling delicious cakes, pies and chutneys, jewellery and local Liverpool artwork.

Eat delicious cake

Every day when I’m walking to and from work via town, or scrolling through Instagram, I’m seeing bakeries and cafes offering up the most beautiful looking cakes and assorted sweet treats. During the week, I do my best to resist, but on the weekend…. Here are some of my favourite places in Liverpool to indulge my sweet tooth:

  • Baltic Bakehouse @ Bridgewater Street
  • Leaf @ Bold Street
  • East Avenue Bakehouse @ Bold Street
  • Artisane @ Bold Street

Grab and coffee and take a stroll

The perfect way to burn of a big meal is by taking by grabbing a coffee ( in my reusable coffee cup please!) When the sun is shining, Liverpool looks truly beautiful. It’s so enjoyable to just walk around looking at the stunning buildings and latest street art to appear. Some of my favourite places to go exploring are the Baltic Triangle and of course Liverpool’s stunning and iconic waterfront. Here are my favourite coffee spots in Liverpool:

  • Lucy in the Sky @ Exchange St East
  • Cow & Co @ Cleveland SQ
  • Love Thy Neighbour @ Bold Street
  • Leaf @ Bold Street

Sefton Park and cute doggies.

I’m lucky to live fairly close to Sefton Park and occasionally like to go running there after work when the weather is nice. I like the solidarity of the other joggers and the little nod everyone gives when they pass by. On Sundays though, Sefton Park has very different vibe. On Sundays, Sefton Park is filled with people walking their extremely cute dogs.  I love walking around and admiring all the doggies and am always filled with jealousy that I don’t have one of my own. After you’ve had your fill of dogs, it’s always good to take a stroll down Lark Lane. Window shop in the boutiques, enjoy a coffee and slice of cake in one of the coffee shops or even have a cheeky drink at the pub.

Have a G&T or two!

Buy me a gin and tonic and I’m your gal. I’m not talking about a cheap Gordons, basic tonic water and sad looking slice of lime in a plastic cup gin and tonic either. I like those fancy gins  served in the gin goblet glasses with Fever Tree tonics and enough fruit to count as one of your 5-a-days. There are a few places in Liverpool that have excellent gin and tonic menus that you’ll definitely be able to catch me in on a Sunday:

  • The Merchant @ Slater Street
  • Fredericks @ Hope Street
  • Cabin @ Berry Street
  • Botanical Garden @ New Bird Street

Enjoy a delicious Sunday roast

It goes without saying that a Sunday roast is possibly the best meal on earth. I usually go round to my family’s for Sunday dinner but sometimes we like to treat ourselves. Here’s some of the best places to enjoy a Sunday roast in Liverpool:

  • Ma Boyle’s Ale House and Eatery @ Tower Gardens.
  • Hanover Social @ Hanover Street
  • The Baltic Social @ Parliament Street
  • Slim’s Pork Chop Express @ Seel Street
