The Walker Art Gallery is one the oldest public art museums in the UK and sits proudly alongside Central Library, World Museum and St Georges Hall in Liverpool’s World Heritage Site. Second only to London, Liverpool is home to the most listed buildings in the UK.
Down on the Albert Dock, Tate Liverpool has a fantastic free collection, which features the works of Picasso, Braque, Duchamp and Simon Starling, and hosts major touring exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. Nearby, The Open Eye Gallery presents a programme of internationally acclaimed photography exhibitions. Leading new media arts centre FACT is based in the Ropewalks area of the city, and The Bluecoat has an exciting programme of visual art, literature, music, dance and live art. Off the beaten track, Metal in Edge Hill Station (the world’s oldest passenger railway station!) runs an exciting programme of performances, exhibitions, film screenings and residencies and The Guardian hail The Royal Standard as the city’s most exciting artist led space.
Everyman and Playhouse (“Two great theatres, one creative heart”) has your theatre fix sorted, whilst the best cinemas are The Picturehouse at FACT (be sure to ask what’s on in The Den) and the recently opened Small Cinema – a cosy community-ran cinema with a variety of films from small independents to big screen names.
Revision crunching and deadlines looming? Take a day out of the city to refresh your mind. Crosby Beach is home to Anthony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’: 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread across 3km of beach. Sea air, spectacular sculpture and calmed nerves are just 30 minutes from Central Station.
