Named after that peace loving Beatle, Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport is perfectly situated to give arriving tourists easy access to any highlights of the North West.
Why hire a car at Liverpool airport?
Undeniably, Liverpool has more than enough to keep visitors entertained for a few days, but the north west of England is chock-full of historic landmarks, unspoilt countryside and attractions outside the cities - booking a hire car makes sure you can get to see them all.
That all-important first mile:
driving out of Liverpool airport?
When leaving the airport you’ll either be heading for the city, or away from it. Pick up a map at tourist information so you can decide where you want to go before hitting the motorway.
To collect or return your Liverpool Airport car rental, head to the ground floor of the short stay parking area directly opposite the main terminal entrance.
If you haven’t done so already, this would be a great place to pick up some Beatles memorabilia. The 'With Love From Liverpool’ shops sells a wide range of scouse souvenirs.
Cash machines are available on all floors. Expect to find them outside JD Sports, Starbucks and the Travelex store which can also help you with currency exchange.
The Kissing Gate Bar and Eatery in the departures area serves up great, fresh, locally inspired food.
For the best view of Liverpool, take an evening drive into town and visit the city’s Anglican Cathedral. They offer twilight tours where you can climb to the top and from the roof, see the entire city - from the Mersey to the outskirts of the town centre. Time it right, and you can watch the city lights come on as the sun sets.

Not only is the city great for shopping, arts and entertainment, but it has a fascinating history, including being home to the oldest Chinese community in Europe, being the birthplace of the Beatles and having two premier league football teams as well as the world famous Grand National on its doorstep. You will never be bored here.
If this part of Britain is good enough for royalty then it’s definitely worth taking a few days of your holiday to explore the area and see what the fuss is about - you won’t be disappointed. Pack a picnic in the hire car and take a scenic drive along the coastline, climb the ramparts of Conwy Castle, eat chips by the canal in Llangollen or camp on the island of Anglesey.
There really is something for everyone here. Families are sure of a great day out at Chester Zoo, the Blue Planet Aquarium or Cheshire Oaks. For couples or groups there are days out to be had at Chester Racecourse, romantic walks to be had at Cholmondeley Castle and hours to be passed simply wandering among the shops and arcades of this historic city.
