It’s half-term, the weather is starting to brighten up and you have kids to keep entertained. That only means one thing… it’s time to get out of the house and enjoy a fun activity in Liverpool! We have rounded up a summary of some of the best free activities you and your family can enjoy in Liverpool this February.
Visit the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool
The Royal Albert Dock is perhaps the best attraction in Liverpool and what’s better yet, it’s free to explore! Going for a walk around the dock is always a fun and relaxing time and there’s always some sort of entertainment on offer such as watching boats come and go. There’s plenty of cafes and restaurants around should you and the family want a refreshment break.
Explore the Museums and Central Library
The local museums are perhaps one of the best free places you can visit with the kids. Not only does it keep the little ones entertained, but they’re bound to be educated on various topics as well. The World Museum, Museum of Liverpool and Maritime Museum are all free to enter and open from 10am to 5pm every day. Near enough everything worth knowing can be found here. That includes everything related to historic wars and artefacts to animals and the city’s seafaring past. There’s also the Central Library opposite St. Georges Hall. Here you view rare archives that date all the way back to the 13th century and check out a collection of books in one of the many stunning rooms.
Head to a Local Park
Fingers crossed the storms are behind us now and the weather begins to supply us with the perfect conditions for a stroll in the park! Liverpool has no shortage of parks. There’s Everton Park, Sefton Park, Calderstones Park and Croxteth Hall & Country Park. All of which provide an excellent backdrop for a relaxing picnic or a light walk. Some parks may even have special events on during the half-term, and some such as Croxteth Park have a farm for the kids to enjoy.
Enjoy Story Time at Sefton Park
On Wednesday, 19th February at 2pm, Sefton Park is hosting a special Story Time event at the Sefton Park Palm House. This event is free to enter and primarily aimed at children under 7 years old. Granby and Dingle Children’s Centre will be telling rhymes and stories based around Random Acts of Kindness Day.
