Exploring Liverpool’s Hidden Gems

cathedral

Liverpool is my home city, and it’s one of the greatest cities on the planet if I do say so myself! Liverpool has a HUGE amount to offer, so I’m here to list off a few amazing places that you can head to, that are just a little bit off the beaten path! I’ve got you covered for cafes, bars and record stores! I know this city like the back of my hand, and I’m excited to share some of my favourite, hidden gems.

The spending money was gifted by Hotels.com, but all views are my own. If you want to tick all of these places off, I recommend you spend a few days in Liverpool as there’s just so much to see and do. If you’re looking for a place to stay, Hotels.com can help you to find some hotels in Liverpool.

Let’s jump in!

THOUGHTFULLY CAFE

Thoughtfully isn’t just the one cafe located on Cleveland Square, just outside of Liverpool one. Thoughtfully is a family owned collective that boasts an Agency and a coffee Kiosk too! They tie together perfect minimalist design, great food and even better coffee. The cafe is light and airy, with huge windows, comfy seats and an abundance of greenery.

You can pick up a tote created by their design agency too if you fancy!

THE LIVERPOOL GUIDE – VIEWS

Before moving to London I lived in Liverpool, and spent all of my life growing up far enough away to not be a scouser, but close enough to be called a wool. Liverpool is home to me, and now I’m oh so far away I’m asked a fair bit about where to hang out, where to drink, what to do with limited time there when visiting.

NEVER FEAR. I know all the best Liverpool haunts and I’m here to share them in the Liverpool guide, starting with VIEWS!

Graduation

So two weeks ago I graduated from university. I’m extremely pleased to be able to say I graduated from the University of Liverpool with a first in law with accounting and finance.

I didn’t put too much weight on choosing a university, and pretty much just chose one that was close to home. I’m very lucky that this paid off, it could have been a terrible mistake, but I realised just how much I love Liverpool, even if I was pretty familiar with it beforehand, and I found a solid group of brilliant people I’m proud to call friends.

It’s funny, I felt like I knew Liverpool before I lived there, but it turns out I really didn’t. Even after two years of living there, I don’t know if I can say I truly know it- new places pop up all the time, and there’s just so much to do that it’s impossible to do it all, but I think I make a pretty damn good effort.

Anyway, because I’m a narcissistic piece of trash, here’s a snapchat of the suit I wore to graduation. I love this suit more than anything, even more so because I got it on sale. It’s actually a three piece but I have only worn it as a three piece once!
