Cheap Flights to Liverpool

Liverpool overview

When is the best time to visit?

Peak Season: 

June through September constitutes Liverpool’s peak season when most visitors take flights to Liverpool in, as the weather is often warm and dry during this period. Liverpool International Music Festival takes place in August. It has grown from the city's biggest music event to an international showpiece. This unique festival reflects the city's ever changing relationship with music through the variety of diverse and innovative music events and performances. It offers something for everyone, especially with the bonus of free outdoor concerts and lots of extra events.

Off Season: 

The city sees the fewest visitors from December through February when weather is cold and there is a high chance of rain. May through June, and October through November, are good off-peak times to find cheap flights to Liverpool, crowds are few and the weather is relatively favourable.

Why visit the city?

Find a cheap flight to Liverpool and visit the city which grew in wealth and influence over the 18th and 19th centuries to become a powerhouse of trade and industry. The city’s historical significance is reflected in its status as the first city outside London to be awarded blue plaques by English Heritage, which recognises the “significant contribution made by its sons and daughters in all walks of life."

Among these famous Liverpudlians (or “Scousers”) are Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. The Beatles tourism has blossomed in the proud city, where tours of significant sites such as former residences are available in abundance. Liverpool is synonymous with The Beatles – even the airport is aptly named Liverpool John Lennon Airport. You’ll want to make sure sights like The Cavern Club and the Lennon Statue are part of your visit. Modern Liverpool is not content to rest on its laurels, however, and its buzzing music scene draws acclaimed groups and artists from around the globe to perform at its many music venues. The Echo Arena, which seats about 11,000, plays host to concerts by renowned musicians and other high-profile music and sporting events.

In 2008, Liverpool was granted the title of European Capital of Culture, an accolade that raised the city’s profile in England and internationally. Visitors can enjoy its nightlife and restaurant scene as well as the museums, theatres and galleries that call Liverpool home. Many travellers book flights to Liverpool to experience this culture.

Liverpool insider information

  • Albert Dock, a UNESCO World Heritage site containing the largest single collection of Grade I listed buildings in the UK, is one of Liverpool’s most popular tourist attractions. The dock is of paramount importance to the city’s maritime history and now houses the Merseyside Maritime Museum, as well as other institutions such as the Tate Liverpool, the Beatles Story exhibition and a range of bars, cafes and restaurants. 
  • The Beatles Story exhibition is dedicated to Liverpool’s famous sons. Beatles fans flock to the site to learn about the history of the Fab Four from attractions including the Fab4D Experience and replicas of famous Beatles-related sites. 
  • Liverpool Cathedral was founded in 1904 but building wasn’t completed until 1978, due to wartime difficulties and cost issues. The cathedral is the largest in the UK in square ft, and its Grand Organ is the largest organ in the UK.
  • World Museum offers free entry and contains collections that focus on natural and physical sciences as well as archaeology and ethnology. The museum originally opened in a different building in 1853 as the Derby Museum of the Borough of Liverpool.
  • The Williamson Tunnels of the Edge Hill area are an intriguing piece of Liverpool’s history. They were built under the direction of businessman Joseph Williamson in the 19th century and their purpose is largely unknown. One theory is that he commissioned the labyrinth simply to provide employment for local labourers, an act of charity that allowed beneficiaries to save face. The Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre, which opened in 2002, hosts guided tours through parts of the underground network.
