Evening strolls just got a whole lot brighter with the return of our much-loved Light Trail, illuminating our historic colonnades and beyond. Download the refreshed map and our specially curated Christmas playlist, pick up a hot toddy, and embark on a magical waterfront walk to find Neptune, Triton, Bella & Bertie.
The Light Trail starts at the dock’s entrance gates with Neptune and Triton leading the way underneath the curtain of blue lights along Salthouse Quay. Next, wander past the festively-lit trees which lead up to Hartley Quay passing the International Slavery and Merseyside Maritime Museum, with a perfect photo spot on Hartley Bridge with the dock’s illuminated backdrop.
From here, stroll past Tate Liverpool along the inner quay which has each of its 86 red columns wrapped in over 1 million twinkling lights, lighting up the walkway of gift shops and cafes, leading on to Britannia Pavilion which is home to some of Liverpool’s best independent restaurants.
To complete the Light Talk, take the exit to The Beatles Story to be greeted with Bella, one half of the Liverbird duo who casts her watchful eye over the port to ensure the boats arrive safely, whilst her other half, Bertie, stands proudly outside Anchor Courtyard to keep watch on the city and the people of Liverpool.
