For a breath of fresh air why not explore Wirral this Easter Bank Holiday? With services from the city to the seaside, Merseyrail can start your day trip from as little as £1.95 return. New Brighton is the place to be for a stroll on the beach or a quiet coffee. Or head to Birkenhead Park and join the joggers and dog walkers in the sun. We all know the best ice-cream is at the seaside, so why not head to West Kirby and soak up a sunset. More reasons to explore Wirral here.

6 – The British Music Experience (BME) Cunard Building

We’ve been raving about the BME for weeks and it finally threw open its doors last month for music lovers to revel in more than 300 iconic artefacts and interactive exhibits. Boogie on down from nearest station, James Street and follow a fun-packed interactive journey through popular music from the end of the second world to the present day charting musical milestones from the birth of rock and roll to the punk revolution to pop icons like The Spice Girls.
