Families have a lot of adventures to choose from in Liverpool, from a water tour in an old army truck to family pubs where kids can work off some steam. Here are a few of your options:

YellowDuck Marine Tours
“The Duck Marine Tour is really fun,” says one TripAdvisor Member. “It travels around the city then goes into the dock as a boat. It was just fun and a new experience.” Another TripAdvisor Member has this to say about YellowDuck: “It's an old army truck thing which does tours round the city but it's brilliant for kids as the drivers carry water pistols and encourage the kids to shoot at passers-by (most people take it in good part...).”

Farmer Ted’s
“This is a farm where the children get the chance to feed the animals and take a tractor ride,” says one TripAdvisor Member. “They also have a large indoor play area and restaurant/cafe.”

Wacky Warehouses
“There are family pubs all around Liverpool called Wacky Warehouse,” says the same member with the Farmer Ted’s insight. “While these are not exactly upper class establishments they are a good place to let the kids let off steam in the adventure playground. You can also get a meal and have a few drinks, great for a rainy day.”

Formby Pinewoods
"Although I am 15 now, I have loved going there ever since I can remember," says one (young) TripAdvisor Member. "It is free to get in, and a walk around the woods searching for squirrels on a hot day can be very cooling. This is all topped off by a lovely stretch of beach at the end packed with people in the summer. A fantastic day out for all." Please note: this is not in Liverpool.

Blundellsands Beach
Relax with the kids, or frolic in the surf, at this beach, which stretches from the boating marina to the industrial docks.

Crosby Beach,Iron Men

Well worth the journey to see Anthony Gormleys famous iron men.Excellent parking facilities,toilets,ice creams and tea and snacks available.Car did get a bit mucky with all the sand. Called out http://www.crosbyvaleting.co.uk/  to give the family car a thorough mobile car valet.
