If you want to experience a touch of elegance whilst visiting the historical docklands of Liverpool, many a luxury travel blog will recommend the Malmaison hotel Liverpool. The hotel is ideally located for visiting the world class tourist attraction and UNESCO world heritage site, Albert Dock. The many attractions that Albert Dock has to offer have made it Liverpool’s number one tourist attractions. With combinations of different attractions at the Port’s Hartley Quay and the Anchor and Mermaid Courtyards, plus the Britannia Pavilion there is entertainment for all the family.
The hotelis situated alongside Princes Port and is an elegant addition to this very stylish area, located just down the river from Albert Port where at the Hartley Quay, you can visit International Slavery Museum or Merseyside Maritime Museum both of which are both entertaining and educational. The luxury afforded by the hotelis a far cry from the story shown at the International Slavery Museum’s 4 galleries, one depicting Life in West Africa, Enslavement and the Middle Passage, one Legacy and Campaign Zone and the forth representing Black History and heritage. The Merseyside Maritime Museum has exhibits showing Liverpool’s role in the American Civil War and the battle for the Atlantic as well as The Border and Customs Uncovered section that gives an insight as to smuggling and tax evasion have been attempted and if you go to the top floor, you can enjoy some great sights whilst dining in the Maritime Dining Room recommended by the Michelin guide.
At the Anchor Courtyard you can either take aMagical Mystery Tour or a choice of two different walking tours. The Magical Mystery Tour bus tour takes two hours during which time you will see where the Beatles grew up, met and started to become the Fab 4 that took the world by storm. During the tour you will treated to some of their best music whilst seeing some of the places that inspired some of their songs like Penny Lane and Strawberry Field, ending up at the Cavern which the Beatles made famous by starting their career there. The walking tours give you a choice of either the Introducing Liverpool tour which takes you through 800 years of Liverpool’s history or the Discovery Waterfront World Heritage which shows you the riverfront and parts of the UNESCO World Heritage City.
When mentioning Liverpool, a travel blog will often mention the Tate Liverpool which, outside of London, is the country’s most popular modern and contemporary gallery located at Mermaid Courtyard and the Britannia pavilion which tells all the Beatle’s story, both of which are also ideally located close to this Liverpoolhotelwith its stylish 130 rooms.
