Best Time to Visit

The peak season for visiting Liverpool is late spring and summer, which is when you'll be able to take advantage of the warmest weather (up to 20°C). Earlier in spring or the first weeks of autumn are good alternatives if you want to find fewer crowds, but still decent weather. Being a seaside city, Liverpool has a maritime climate, which means summers are warm and winters are not extremely cold; however, the weather can be unpredictable - make sure you take a look at the forecast before packing.
