Pegged as a MICE destination to watch for 2020 by Pacific World, Liverpool is a city with impressive sporting, musical, historic and artistic cultural offerings. Located on a beautiful waterfront, it’s an affordable alternative to London with many unique event venues. Here’s our pick of four of the best…
Fancy holding your event in the jaw dropping iconic surroundings of the fifth largest cathedral in the world. Britain’s biggest cathedral, famously described by St John Betjeman as “one of the great buildings of the world”, provides a stunning backdrop. With its magnificent Gothic arches, the central space offers historical beauty with a modern twist. Whether it is a candlelit dinner for up to 1,000 or a stylish canapé reception for up to 3,000 standing, the central space is sure to impress.
Situated on a UNESCO World Heritage site, and just a five-minute car drive from Liverpool City Centre, Rum Warehouse is a beautifully renovated 1950’s warehouse, which boasts 789m2 of flexible event spaces seating up to 500 guests.
With floor to ceiling glazing and dockside views it can host a range of events from conferences and exhibitions to dinners and receptions. The venue forms part of the 153-bedroom Titanic Hotel Liverpool.
British Music Experience is situated in the Cunard Building, one of Liverpool’s Three Graces. The museum utilises the space that was once the first-class passenger lounge of the world-famous Cunard Line. It is a Grade II listed building that first opened in 1916, full of beautiful marble columns and ornate ceilings. The main space can host 100 theatre-style or 150 for a reception.
This magnificent Grade 2* Victorian Glass House was lovingly restored 15 years ago thanks to a hard-fought local community-led campaign which transformed it from dereliction. Groups can now dine amongst the palms, orchids and rare plants, several from the two-hundred-year-old Liverpool Botanical collection. The Sefton Park Palm House can comfortably seat 220 for a sit-down dinner or up to 400 for a drinks reception.
