Families of all sizes will be amazed and pleasantly surprised at the many activities for children available in Liverpool.

A ride on the Yellow Duckmachine is a must! The brightly painted yellow World War II landing vehicle tours the city by road taking in all of the famous sites and landmarks then splashes into the Salthouse Dock to continue the thrilling adventure around the dock area. There is live audio commentary throughout which keeps the most fidgety children engaged and enthralled.

The majority of children adore water, a trip on the Mersey Ferry will delight them! The trip informs visitors of Liverpool’s history while seeing famous buildings and spectacular sites. There is the opportunity to include a visit to Spaceport which covers exciting and informative information relating to space and space travel. Spaceport allows you to wander through six themed galleries with a wide range of activities for children including interactive and hands-on exhibits plus audio visual guides.

Liverpool has the largest cathedral in the UK which has the highest Gothic arches in the world. The awe inspiring architecture and stunning views from the tower are appealing to children and they won’t want to miss the cathedral’s newest attraction The Great Space. It impresses children further that the cathedral also has the world’s heaviest peal of bells.

Intriguing stories of smuggling and contraband can be found at the Customs and Excise Museum. The museum houses unique collections and tells the history of smuggling, including thrilling information on the cut-throat smugglers and strange bizarre objects of interest, illegal weapons including a Kommando machine gun which children will find fascinating.

Activities for children which include live theatre, film, fine art and family orientated events can be found at the Citadel Arts Centre to amuse and entertain children of all ages, the Centre is also well known for its diverse music programme and fantastic Christmas shows.
