DAY TWO

09:00
  After your hotel breakfast fry-up, sports fans should head to Anfield Stadium (anfieldtour.com), to say you’ve emerged from the tunnel on to the pitch of one the most successful clubs in English football. Tickets are £15 per person.

12:00  To appease any vintage fans in your group, head to Bold Street. It’s got probably the best Oxfam in the country (it’s basically a vintage store, but without a weighty price tag). While you’re there, hit independent tea shop, Leaf (thisisleaf.co.uk) for a cuppa and a cheap lunch (they do 
a delicious Greek mezze that’s £10.50 and big enough for two). If you’re here at the right time, Leaf holds Retro Sundays on the last Sunday of every month, with a vintage fair selling men’s and women’s clothing, accessories and homeware.

14:00  For some alternative modern art, head out of town to the coast. Get the number 53 bus, which leaves Queen Square in Liverpool city centre, to Crosby Beach, where you’ll find an in-water installation called Another Place by Antony Gormley. It’s made up of 100 cast-iron, life-sized sculptures of people dotted around, heading nearly one kilometre out to sea. One heck of a creepy sight.

18:00  You’ll be pretty hungry by the time you get back, so head to the Albert Dock for dinner at Blue Bar and Grill (bluebarliverpool.co.uk) overlooking the waterfront (international mains about £14). Head downstairs to Baby Blue for live, award-winning comedy, with stand-ups and sketch shows from around the world.

23:00  Continue your night at the Berry and Rye, a old-time cocktail bar located just a couple of minutes walk from the town centre. There's no menu here - the guys ask you what you'd like to drink, so feel free to stay classic or experiment a little.
