Sudley House

Sudley House has been described as a hidden gem. Tucked away in leafy suburbs, Sudley is the only house of a Victorian merchant that still has its original pictures, including works by Millais, Turner and Rossetti, and with beautiful period furniture, carpets and wallpaper it doesn't feel like a regular gallery. There is also a childhood room, a small world room and a costume room... More

Antony Gormley's Another Place

Time your visit to this outdoor attraction during low tide. Crosby Beach to the north of the city hosts 100 iron figures cast from the artists' own bodies then erected over a three-kilometer area. Anthony Gormley's simple yet remarkable installation is especially rewarding at sunset.

Grand Central Hall

Away from the main tourist action, this former religious meeting hall now hosts an array of independent shopping. An ideal destination for anyone in the market for local designer wear, accessories, vintage and retro clothing. If open, it's worth taking a look upstairs at the wonderful former Methodist arena.

Western Approaches - Liverpool War Museum

A hidden gem in the center of the city also know as the Liverpool War Museum. This was the underground command center for the Navy, Air Force and Marines tracking Atlantic enemy submarine and convoy shipping during World War II. Offering fascinating and authentic military insight, little has been altered in this 70-year-old subterranean control bunker. Check in advance for opening times.

Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre

A remarkable attraction in an unremarkable area of the city. Here is an extraordinary collection of tunnels and chambers commissioned by 19th century Victorian industrialist Joseph Williamson. His motivations for the work are still a mystery, but guided tours among what's thought to be just a small part of a much wider network offer plenty of insights.
