things to do this bank holiday weekend – city explorer

Keeping the children entertained this bank holiday weekend & half term can be a daunting task, however with a little inspiration, you won’t be short of ideas to get out of the house and make the most of this bank holiday weekend & half term, so here are some ideas that are great activities that are fun for all of the family.

Sound City Festival:

Sound City is a Liverpool based musical festival that takes place over the 25th of May – 28th of May on Clarence Dock (just outside Liverpool city centre) This bumper festival celebrates it’s 10th anniversary and features highly anticipated acts such as The Kooks, Metronomy, The Human League, The Velvet Underground, The Cribs and more! Aside from music, there are also a wide variety of other things going on on the festival site such as fairground rides, comedy & spoken word acts and many tempting food and drink stalls to keep you going.

You can view the full Sound City Lineup and schedule here and purchase day tickets and weekend passes on the official website here:

Bask in Bank Holiday Sun:

Liverpool is set to be under a heatwave during Bank holiday, as temperatures are set to soar to over 20°c! (even hotter than in Madrid!) This summer sun is the perfect time to go out and enjoy many of our wonderful parks, have a BBQ with friends, or simply enjoy time in the sun (whilst it lasts!) Looking for a place to stay in the city during the bank holiday weekend? You can book an affordable luxury hostel at Sleep Eat Love.

City Explorer Tour:

City Explorer Tour is a fantastic, educational time killer that provides fun for all the family and excellent value for money.

See all of the incredible sights and attractions that Liverpool city centre has to offer on a state of the art open top bus. The perfect way to see the sights from above and enjoy the half term sun! Along the tour, you will also be accompanied by one of our expert tour guides who knows everything there is to know about Liverpool’s past and behind the scenes of each interesting stop on the tour.

To book a ride on the City Explorer tour, please visit our booking site here: to book tickets in advance. Alternatively you can also book on the day before you hop on the bus, however to avoid disappointment it is advised to book in advanced during the busy bank holiday/ half term times.
