Liverpool is so closely associated with The Beatles that a flight to Liverpool lands you at John Lennon Airport, but this UK city with roots going back to the 13th century has a rich heritage and wealth of tourist attractions beyond its homages to those fab four local lads. With Liverpool car rentals, you can zip around the sights of the city center, among them UNESCO World Heritage-listed maritime landmarks, thousands of listed Victorian and Georgian heritage buildings, and Liverpool Cathedral, one of the largest churches in the world. They also make it easy to see some of the top sights in the wider region of Merseyside.
Driving in and around Liverpool
Car rentals in Liverpool mean you can drive the eight miles directly from the airport to the city center, then take a ferry across the Mersey. On the other side of the river, drive around the Wirral Peninsula, a scenic region of beaches and unspoiled countryside. Avid golfers should not miss the chance to play at round at Royal Liverpool Golf Club or Royal Birkdale in coastal Southport. Both are Open Championship hosts and part of "England's Golf Coast," a string of world-renowned courses within driving distance of Liverpool. Stop in Southport on a sunny day to enjoy its 22 miles of coastline, historic iron pier, water park, and old-fashioned seaside resort. Another famous sporting venue on the outskirts of Liverpool is Aintree Racecourse, home of the Grand National. Families and all animal lovers will enjoy a drive through Knowsley Safari Park to see some of its 700 resident wild animals, including tigers, lions, giraffes, and playful baboons.
