Half-term in Liverpool: 8 heavenly places to restore your chill without the kids
It’s February half-term in Liverpool, it’s raining (of course it’s raining) and you’ve completely exhausted our lists of fun indoor activities. It’s official, you deserve some down time!
Half-term in Liverpool can be spent in many ways, with an abundance of parks, museums and beaches offering free fun, as well as soft-play centres, craft sessions and the endless feeding and laundry, it can also be completely knackering.
Even super parents need to have a little down time every now and then. So once you’ve explored the galleries, applauded the circus clowns and washed all the swimming kits……when you’re done picking play-doh out of the carpet and sneaked all the cereal box creations into the blue recycling bins, give yourself a bit of time off. Hand over the childcare baton to Mum, or Dad or Nan or granddad, or a lovely willing friend, and check this out…
Here’s our top 8 Liverpool places to restore your chill this half-term, without the kids.

We’re going straight in at the deep end! Turn your phone off and relax with a deep tissue massage at Morgan’s Spa, 30 James Street. How utterly fabulous does the spa look? Find out more here.

6 – Japanese Walled Garden, Calderstones Park
Okay so thoughts of the park may bring back memories of kids and dogs covered in mud this week, but tucked away inside the 94 acre Calderstones Park, among the parkland, forest and picturesque lakeside is the tranquil Japanese garden, just perfect for 30 mins chill. Not a swing or slide in sight. More here.
7 – Coffee Shop at the Walker Art Gallery
A good book, magazine or even a wander around the sculpture gallery (without little voices laughing at all the naked guys) could do wonders for exhausted mums and dads. Finish up with a coffee and piece of cake in the coffee shop surrounded by priceless art! More here.
8 – Kaiserkeller, Mathew Street
If all else fails and a raucous night out is the only way to feel like a grown up again, head on down to KaiserKeller and Sports Bar, Mathew Street for snacks, sausage and some big band entertainment with a German comedy twist! More info available here.
