Reasons for trip


Liverpool Christmas Fair is quite compact – clustered around St Georges Hall. The area has been dubbed the Museum Quarter. You would expect a city to have only four quarters but Liverpool actually has seven – in other words they don’t do things by halves…..!

There was not much in the way of crafts or gifts for sale – these products are usually found at the Albert Dock area where they have regular Makers Markets or the Anglican Cathedral where they hold a Winter Arts Market.

The St Georges Hall market was all food and drink plus traditional fairground rides. In this area is the mainline railway station Lime Street, the Empire Theatre, the World Museum, the Walker Art Gallery, Picton Reading Rooms and the Hornby Library.. In fact, you are surrounded by impressive Victorian architecture.

We actually decided to go into the art gallery for our tea and cakes. This gave us the opportunity to sit down, catch up with friends in comparitive peace and use the facilities. We also had a walk around the many collections from decorative art, animation installations, costumes, sculptures and great masterpieces by Hockney, Monet, Millais, Rossetti, Stubbs, Turner, Rembrandt and Rubens – treasures dating from early times up to the present day.

In conclusion , I would say, that Liverpool Christmas Fair is great for treating the grandchildren, but not the place to buy your gifts. Just come back another day to enjoy the charm of St Georges Hall and the museum Quarter.
