Question Liverpool. - November 26th 2012, 08:23 AM

So me and my boyfriend are travelling up to Liverpool in a few weeks (he doesn't know yet, it's a birthday surprise from my mum ) and I was wondering how expensive stuff is out there. I need to know how much money to bring, we're staying for two nights so will need to pay for a dinner, breakfast, lunch, dinner and breakfast. And then we will also want some spending money.

How much would you suggest we take? It's just the two of us. And is it quite easy to get around in Liverpool? I really don't know where we're going, because we have to get from the train station to the hotel. Then find somewhere to have dinner. And then somewhere to have breakfast in the morning. And then we have to get to Anfield, cos we're going on a tour of the stadium, and then we have to find somewhere for lunch and dinner there.

And what should we pack? Just basic clothes, shampoo, body wash etc...


And she turns up the music, to drown out her life.

22/12/2014 was the last date I self-harmed. The longest I have gone so far is 1 year, 2 months and 5 days. This time, I hope I can give up! New record: 1 year 6 months! Yay!!

Why can't you just withdraw a reasonable amount and then bring a debit card so that you can withdraw more money if need be... I am not sure how much you'd need, I am Canadian and haven't ever been to liverpool, even if I had we talk about dollars not pounds haha so I'd be bouncing with inaccurate conversions

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions

I've never been to Liverpool, however you can probably go online and find a reasonably priced hotel and use that as a guide for how much money to bring.
As for packing, I would just bring clothes and any toiletries you use daily such as toothpaste and deodorant. Most hotels already have shampoo and conditioner in their bathrooms, however you can always get one of those little travel-sized portions just in case.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I'm American, so it's hard for me to estimate how much you need. However, if it's only two days, pack lightly with the basics, just shower essentials, simple light comfy clothes and basic travel needs. Back on the money issue, when on doubt, overestimate. It's better to have too much money than not enough. Take what you think you'll need for each meal, then double that. That will provide you padding for expensive food and a bit of spending money. Hope that helps!

Re: Liverpool. - December 4th 2012, 08:57 AM

Liverpool's about the same as most UK cities in my experience - expensive to park in (and I mean REALLY expensive) but otherwise not too pricey to get around and there's a range of places to eat and stay to suit all budgets. Most of the hotels are within walking distance of Lime Street Station or James Street Station and you can find a range of cafes, pubs and restaurants nearby those stations as well. We went on a class night out there last month and stayed overnight, and we managed pretty well on a budget so you should be fine. As far as what to pack, you'll get by with just the basics and if you do need to buy anything else there are plenty of places to buy things.
In terms of how to get around and where to find things, Merseytravel is a good page to look at to work out how to get around the city, and VisitLiverpool is good for everything else.

Hope that helps and enjoy your trip when it comes - it's a nice city so hopefully you'll both have a good time.

However bleak things seem, however insurmountable the darkness appears, remember that you have worth and nothing can take that away.
