Not all getaways need to be about candlelit dinners or romantic strolls under the stars, so why not take a look at some of the UK’s best cities as you plan a trip with a perfect balance of Cupid and the kids.
All you need is love on Valentine’s Day, and there’s plenty to go around in the home of the Beatles. Learn about Liverpool’s Fab Four at The Beatles Story, a museum tribute to the band situated on the historic Albert Dock, or hop on-board the Magical Mystery Tour and discover iconic Beatles spots including Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields. Afterwards, you can head to the world-renowned Cavern Club, where under 18s can stay until 8pm, and enjoy live music throughout the day.
If your kids are the centre of your universe, take them on a journey across the galaxy with a trip to Liverpool’s Spaceport. Make your way through themed galleries packed with interactive exhibits, as you and your children get hands-on with experiments in gravity and the speed of light. Don’t miss the planetarium – stargazing is timeless, romantic, and great fun for the whole family!
End your family day out with a memorable meal at Mulholland, a singing diner with an American-themed menu. From movie soundtracks to power ballads and Disney classics, bring a little Broadway to your Valentine’s Day this year.
When it’s time for bed, head back to the Novotel Liverpool Centre Hotel, which sits in an excellent central location just a few hundred metres from both Mulholland and Liverpool Central station.
