Liverpool named best large city break in the UK

According to almost 4,000 Which? members in their latest survey, Liverpool is the UK’s top-rated big city for a holiday. South East and London are beaten by cities in Northern England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

For cultural sights, accommodation, crowds, and parking, it scored better than other popular cities like York and Edinburgh as well as its local rival Manchester. Liverpool also received higher ratings than London.

Tiny Wells in Somerset was by far the most popular small city, with Bath and Chester being the most popular medium-sized cities or towns.

With a score of 84%, Liverpool topped Which?’s large cities table. Visitors told the UK’s consumer champion they loved cultural sights such as Albert Dock, museums, the Walker Gallery, and its two cathedrals. Also very popular was The Beatles Museum.

One survey participant said: ‘I had completely underestimated how much there was to see and do in Liverpool.’ while others enthused over the friendliness of the locals when visiting.

With four stars for food and drink, it was one of a number of northern and Scottish cities to receive a higher rating than London, which received just three. For cultural sites, it received five stars; for accommodation, shopping, and lack of crowds, it received four. Liverpool performed better with three stars for parking than the majority of the highly rated cities in the survey, which received just one.
