2. A visit to FACT.

Yes, it may be known as a cinema (which is a decent date location in itself), but is by no means your average one. This place is home to creative exhibitions, and has a great cafe and bar to enjoy, even if you're not intent on watching a film.

3. Alternatively, a stroll around the Albert Dock is (literally) a breath of fresh air.

There are plenty of shops and places to eat amidst the heritage of the docks, but it's genuinely a lovely place for wandering. Oh, and there's a gorgeous waterfront view.

4. Soak up some culture at the Walker Art Gallery.

If you're after a bit of cultural discussion, this is ideal, whereby you can visit statue and sculpture rooms. What's more, it's a brief walk from Lime Street station and is free to get in.

One of Liverpool's most talked about and enticing bars, it boasts a great atmosphere so's perfect for getting to know someone. It's kind of hidden away though, so if you find it, you're in for a treat.

6. An evening of comedy at The Slaughter House.

If you're after a laugh, then you won't regret going to The Slaughter House. It plays host to top quality, well-known comedians. And to sweeten the deal even more, tickets are reasonably priced at under £20.

7. Liverpool One.

If retail therapy does it for you, then L1 will tick that box. But this is far more than just a shopping complex. Not only is its architecture breathtaking, but there's plenty to do besides shop. It's also the largest open air structure of its kind in the UK.
