Museums, including the Beatles Story and the International Slavery Museum, are located here too. Albert Dock hotels are also great for nightlife-seekers: the 19th Century warehouses lining the waterfront are now home to a wide variety of trendy restaurants and cocktail bars.
There are plenty of mid-range and luxury hotels to choose from on Liverpool's waterfront.Popular hotels include the Hollywood Apartment and Barges, The Block self-catering apartments, and the Jury's Inn.

Nearby things to see and do include Liverpool's Court Theatre (which hosts Broadway musicals and plays), St George's Hall (home to an interesting Heritage Centre) and the World Museum (which has five floors of exhibits to explore).
Ropewalks is a gentrifying area of Liverpool famous for its bohemian atmosphere and buzzing nightlife, making it a great option for hipsters and backpackers. Bold Street and Berry Street are the hubs of the neighbourhood, and are lined with cool independent boutiques and coffee shops. As well as after-dark hotspots like the Jacaranda and Attic, Ropewalks also has cultural attractions such as St Luke's (the bombed out church) and the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT). Accommodation here is similarly eclectic, with funky boutique hotels and trendy serviced apartments.
Liverpool Airport is nine miles Southeast of the city centre. If you're flying early in the morning, hotels near Liverpool Airport will give you a little extra shut-eye (and reduce some of the stress of the journey). Business travellers, who are just hopping to Liverpool for a quick overnight, might find hotels near Liverpool Airport a more relaxing option. It takes 23 minutes to get into the city centre using public transport, so you'll have plenty of time for a bit of extra-curricular sightseeing.

There's lots to do and see in Manchester, but it's a quick one-hour trip (or less) to get to Liverpool -- a vibrant city I highly recommend visiting too if you've got the time.
I took a train from Manchester to Liverpool for a day trip and walked around the city for about 4 hours. Got to see the bar where Beatles originated.
A really exciting and vibrant city, Liverpool has some great bars and restaurants to entertain younger visitors. However there is plenty to do for history buffs as well with some fantastic museums such as the World Museum and The Museum of Liverpool in the impressively designed waterfront building. Two amazing cathedrals round out the sights in this dynamic city.
