Travel | Liverpool City Guide with Travelodge*

If you've seen my latest YouTube video, you will know that last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited by Travelodge to go stay at their Liverpool Central Exchange Street Hotel for two nights. So I decided to take my friend Danielle on a little pre Birthday trip up north for a weekend away.

The hotel was really great and had everything we needed! The bed was oh so comfy, especially as I was feeling a tad ill on the Friday night with sinusitis so was so glad to get a really good nights sleep in the bed! The staff were great and very attentive, we even had our room tidied and bed made on the Saturday morning! Also don't even get me started on the breakfast! This was just ideal, especially Sunday morning after a night out on the Liverpool cobbles.

So what did we get up to in Liverpool? Well Friday evening we headed to Jamie's Italian for some dinner and drinks. I was so excited to try one of the sharing platters as well as a tasty main; however just after tucking into the sharing platter for starters I came over feeling incredibly ill that when the waitress brought out my main I couldn't even take a bite out of my steak. What I will say though is that the waitress was incredible; she spoke to her manager who actually took the cost of my main off the bill as I hadn't even touched it. I felt so bad as it looked so tasty but I just felt horrid that I couldn't face eating it. (This is also why there's no pictures of the restaurant or the food, bad blogger over here!)

Saturday we got up and headed out at around 10.30ish, taking a stroll down to the docks to have a look at a The Maritime Museum & The Beatles Exhibition. The weather wasn't that great so we did have to make a run for it to the museum to avoid the torrential rain!

As someone who isn't a big fan of The Beatles I was a bit hesitant at handing over £15 for the exhibition; however I actually really enjoyed it and would recommend that if you are ever in Liverpool to visit the museum as it is well worth the money.

After that we headed to get something small for lunch as we weren't that hungry. We actually ended up in a Slug & Lettuce surrounded by stag & hen parties; that definitely got us in the mood for going out that evening. But before heading back to the hotel we decided to have a little look in the shops Liverpool One had to offer. I actually spent nearly an hour in the River Island there as it was massive, cue me buying a skirt that I didn't really need! The shopping was amazing there, so many shops and not enough time!

Then it was back to the room to have a little relax, whilst tucking into a pizza from the Hotel Bar and watching BGT. After getting changed and glammed up we hit the streets to see what the Liverpool night life is like. We headed down to Concert Square and enjoyed a few drinks in Modo, Walkabout & Revolution to name a few, all whilst dancing the night away till the early hours of Sunday!

Then it was time to head back home and pretty much sleep for the whole entire Sunday!

I want to say a big thanks to the people over at Talented Talkers for setting this collaboration with Travelodge up!
