A day in Liverpool with a kid

We are thinking to go to Liverpool to see the Chagall exhibition in Tate Liverpool. As it'll take around 4 hours to drive it might be a good idea to stay overnight. So I wonder what else we could do, which would also interesting for our tween daughter. Also is it better to stay in Liverpool or somewhere outside?

Take a trip on the Mersey Ferry: http://www.merseyferries.co.uk/

Visit the World Museum, with it's planetarium, aquarium, Egyptian mummies and Bug House with live creepy crawlies: http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/wml/

If you aren't afraid of heights then go up the Radio City Tower: www.radiocity.co.uk/near-you/tower-tours/

Or visit the Anglican Cathedral which is the largest cathedral in the UK and 5th largest in the world: http://www.liverpoolcathedral.org.uk/

Perhaps go to the top of the tower at the Cathedral: liverpoolcathedral.org.uk/about/the-tower.as…

There is also a crazy/miniature golf course called 'Jungle Rumble' in Liverpool One - might be good if you have a child with you. Liverpool is a very child friendly city. 'The Museum of Liverpool' and 'The World Museum Liverpool' also cater very well for children.

Take a tour bus; take a ferry; activities in Chavssse Park, Liverpool One....

Thanks a lot for your comments. Very helpful. We are arriving late in the evening and staying at a hotel near Albert Dock. Could anyone recommend a nice family friendly restaurant for dinner and something interesting for lunch on the other day?

Yes, either Gusto or Pizza Express at The Albert dock - or any number of chain -type eateries on the restaurant Terrace of Chavasse Park - Liverpool One.

For lunch, try Bold Street - lots more independent eateries - such asa Lebanese/ Moroccan/Chinese/ Italian etc.

The duck boat tours are always quite fun, you get to go around learning about the city and then in the water around the albert dock. I went a few years ago and loved it.

They no longer operate due to several accidents!
