Close up with Lion at Knowsley Safari Park - October

Knowsley Safari Park – October

Are you ready for lots of pictures with the animals at Knowsley this month? I’ve shared 28, but some are with the spacious fields the animals have, just to show what great conditions they have there. To have good pictures of the animals I need to take the DSLR with me, otherwise, the zoon on […]

Victorian Lecture Theatre

Liverpool Medical Institution

I went to the Liverpool Medical Institution many times since I moved here because they always seem to organize very interesting activities for events such as Light Night. This month I booked tickets for the tour they were offering with the Heritage Open Days event. They offer tours for groups at low prices, but that […]

Corridor in the infirmary

Alfred Waterhouse

A few days ago my husband and I went to an architecture themed tour. It was about the work of Alfred Waterhouse and organized by Victoria Gallery & Museum. We saw those buildings before, now part of Liverpool University and it was lovely to learn more about them. Waterhouse was born in Liverpool and he […]

Sea Lion

Knowsley Safari Park – September

My husband and I bought a membership at Knowsley Safari Park, and so I thought it would be nice to share pictures from there every month, to see how the weather changes and how the animals change with it. After this short introductory post, the others will more likely be “pictures only” kind of posts. […]

High Park Reservoir

These days we are visiting lots of places with Heritage Open Days and the first one we’ve been to was the High Park Reservoir. We tried to visit it before, but it was so popular that we didn’t manage to get in, despite them allowing up to 60 people per tour. This time we arrived […]

Double Fantasy

Double Fantasy

Double Fantasy is a special exhibition at Liverpool Museum. I mentioned before that we’ve visited it after having lunch at Castle Street Townhouse last week. The exhibition is free to visit and very interesting, I would recommend it. The items on display are placed in chronological order and it starts with how they met, at […]

Gaia - A replica of Earth

Last year I’ve been to see the Museum of the Moon, a replica of the Moon. Check that post if you haven’t seen it before. This year a new event takes place in Liverpool and we were able to admire a Giant Earth, called Gaia (Earth in Greek Mythology). Gaia is brought here for the […]

Cat sleeping at Cat Café Liverpool

Cat Café Liverpool

You might have seen this picture on my Instagram account a few days ago, along with a couple more from an amazing new cafe. I’ve been to Cat Café Liverpool, after visiting their Manchester location for a couple of times. We’ve ended up there by chance. My husband and I were in the city centre, […]

LightNight is an annual event in Liverpool, when museums and art galleries, along Universities open their doors for exciting new activities, talks, crafts, […]
