    I recently visited Pier Head, and I was really impressed. It is a iconic waterfront location in Liverpool, and it is home to some of the city's most famous landmarks, including the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building, and the Mersey Ferry. The Pier Head is a great place to take in the views of the Mersey River and the city skyline. It is also a popular spot for events, such as the Tall Ships Festival and the Liverpool International Boat Show. I visited Pier Head on a sunny day, and it was a beautiful sight to behold. The three iconic buildings stand tall against the backdrop of the river, and they are a reminder of Liverpool's rich maritime history.

    Rejuvenated Waterfront - Pier Head
    The rejuvenation of Liverpool’s waterfront has brought life and colour back to the city. With an impressive array of buildings, statues, street performers and public art, if has a good vibe. It is worth wandering around and there is plenty to see and do.

    Stunning waterfront lit up for charity.
    Took part in a charity walk for A local Cancer Charity. The city looked glorious all lit up green. The buildings along the Liverpool waterfront were stunning. So beautiful of a night time as well as during the day.

    Beautiful location, greeted by the Beatles
    We recently visited Pier Head, stopping for the day on a cruise ship. The pier head is a beautiful location, and it includes the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building, and the Mersey Ferry. We enjoyed exploring this area, especially in the morning, with fewer people around. We were greeted by the Beatles' statue, which is located there. From there, take a walk along the river to the Royal Albert Dock, seeing thousands of padlocks along the way.

The Pier Head complex is a wonderful waterfront area of the city that's most definitely well worth checking out if you're planning a trip to Liverpool, home to The Royal Liver Building, The Port Of Liverpool Building and The Cunard Building collectively known as The Three Graces but there's lots of great buildings here such as George's Dock Pumping Station and George's Dock Ventilation & Control Station ,wonderful looking buildings in their own right ,you also have the Ferry Building and lots of statue's and monuments plus museums ,hospitality wise there's cafe's and restaurants, all in all its a great area of the city to check out if you're in Liverpool.

Our cruise ship stopped for only one day but what an enjoyable stop Liverpool was! There’s plenty of Beatlemania including statues, stores full of memorabilia and interesting displays in the Liverpool Museum. The Museum itself is beautiful and well worth a visit! And don’t miss the largest cathedral in Great Britain, ( and 8th largest in the world), the beautiful Liverpool Cathedral.

What a fantastic location for Liverpool's Eurovision Village for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest. Right on the waterfront in front of the 3 Graces (Liver Buildings)
So we'll organised, lots of places to eat & drink plus some Ukrainian authentic shops. 10 days of live music & events daily for the run up to the main contest.
Such an eclectic mix of people in this free event. Great security checking people in to ensure everyone's safety. Fantastic atmosphere with the volunteers doing an excellent job.
It's a gorgeous location to visit anytime of year but they definitely know how to stage an event. Well done Liverpool you should be very proud of what you've achieved here
Highly recommend

Loved it! Lots of shops and eateries…my sort of stroll. We took the Mersey ferry; a 50 minute tour but the rain made it hard to hear the historic commentary. Brilliant views and great, friendly bar staff! I’d do it again (on a brighter day)

Pier Head is the heart and soul of Liverpool. This is where you find the well photographed Royal Liver Building, which is topped by the Liver Bird statue, the symbol of the city. The Liver Building is part of the Three Graces which also includes the Cunard Building and The Port of Liverpool Building. Beautiful architecture in a city that contains much beautiful architecture. Pier Head provides poignant views of the River Mersey. Great place to visit on a sunny day. Nearby is the outstanding Museum of Liverpool and the Royal Albert Dock. Pier Head is also where you can catch the "Ferry Across the Mersey" made famous by Gerry and the Pacemakers in the 1960s.
