About Jessica B
Lives in Liverpool, United Kingdom
Since Apr 2013
18-24 year old female
I was born and raised in Liverpool and have spent my life living between Liverpool and Manchester. I also spent a large chunk of 2014 working in Rio de Janeiro (amazing!). I especially love travelling to places with natural beauty and last year I fulfilled my dream of seeing penguins in the wild in the south of Argentina. My next adventure? Who knows!?

A definite must see, this 200-year-old labyrinth of underground tunnels was constructed by the eccentric businessman Joseph Williamson. Only recently rediscovered, no one knows why he had the tunnels built or how far they actually stretch. One of Liverpool's biggest mysteries.
Dating back to 1530, this Tudor Manor House is one of the finest surviving buildings from this era.
Grand Central is home to an exciting range of independent, alternative shops selling everything from vinyl records to comic books and vintage clothes. Although the shops might not be to everyone's taste, it's the colourful and quirky architecture that makes Grand Central worth a visit.
Located in the picturesque village of Port Sunlight, Lady Lever Art Gallery houses an impressive collection of fine art as well as beautiful Chinese tapestries and ceramics. Its internationally renowned Pre-Raphaelite paintings are particularly beautiful.
Sudley House is a real hidden gem; tucked away in the leafy suburb of Aighburth, this Victorian-era house has maintained all its original features. Displaying an impressive collection of art, toys and clothes, Sudley House offers a true glimpse into what life was really like during Victorian times.
At first sight this curious art installation might just seem like a group of random suitcases dumped in the middle of the street. On closer inspection, you'll notice that each suitcase belongs to someone who has made a positive impact on the city of Liverpool. A nearby board explains who the 'owners' of the suitcases are.
A church unlike any other, St Luke's was bombed during the Blitz of World War II. With no roof, nature has taken over and the frame of the building stands in memory of what was lost during the war. An extremely peaceful place and well worth a visit.
This art-deco concert hall is home to Liverpool's Philharmonic orchestra, the country's oldest professional orchestra. The hall hosts both classical and modern music concerts, as well as film premiers and comedy events. With over 250 shows a year, you will be spoiled for choice!
This underground bunker was once a secret military headquarters during the Second World War.
The oldest surviving building in Liverpool city centre, the Bluecoat plays host to art exhibits, theatre performances and much more. Free to enter, and with a secluded courtyard garden, it is a place of real tranquility in the heart of the city centre.
