Liverpool: The Most Romantic UK City. Or Not?

sweetsAnyone in Liverpool (that includes those of us working here at Webrevolve) planning a few after work drinks tonight, followed by a takeaway on the way home and a night in front of the TV – think again.

Your city needs YOU!

Just three years after a Google survey named the people of Liverpool as the most romantic in the country; this great city of ours has been brought down to earth with a bump by being named the LEAST romantic place in the UK (confusing, we know!).

Back in 2011, it was reported that Google search queries for Valentine’s-related keywords, such as “Valentine’s day card” and “romantic restaurants” were at their highest right here in Liverpool – ahead of Cardiff, Nottingham and Brighton.

So how can the mighty tumble so quickly?

Well, for one, this most recent survey which – carried out on behalf of Lifetime – asked 1000 people where they thought the most romantic place in the country was. Liverpool finished bottom of the pile with the Lake District (original, right?) topping the list.

But maybe some of those misled people have paid a visit to Liverpool and spent too much of their time at The Cavern Club or enjoying the Mathew Street nightlife rather than experiencing its romantic side?

So, for the benefit of those who have never been to Liverpool, as well as those of you who have and might need a few ideas – here are 10 romantic things to do in Liverpool this Valentine’s weekend.

1. Explore the Architecture (Liverpool has 2,500 listed buildings)

2. Sample the local Cuisine for a Romantic Meal

3. Visit Eros in Sefton Park

4. Take a Spin on the ECHO Wheel

5. Enjoy the Palm House at Sefton Park

6. Ferry across the Mersey

7. Watch a Band in The Cavern Club (‘All You Need is Love!’)

8. See the Sun Set over Otterspool Prom

9. Stroll around the Historic Docks

10. Pay a Visit to The Beatles Museum (‘She Loves You Yeah, Yeah, Yeah…!’)
