Food & Drink editor, Jean Hill, shares a few tempting suggestions for the Easter Bank Holiday…

Royal Albert Dock

Royal Albert Dock and Stanley Dock Liverpool

Extending its opening days for Easter weekend, visitors can shake off their day in The Fandangoe DISCOTECA, a micro-disco created by artist Annie Frost Nicholson. Located by The Beatles Story at Royal Albert Dock, dance the day away or relive old memories with a treasured tune from 12pm-3pm and 4pm-7pm on Good Friday and Saturday, and 12pm-4pm on Easter Sunday and bank holiday Monday.

Do not forget to take part in the Dock’s Bunny Tail Trail:

This Easter, Royal Albert Dock is inviting families and children to take part in the Bunny Tail Trail, whereby visitors must track down the Easter Bunny to be in with the chance of winning an incredible prize.

Launching on Friday 29th March and running until Sunday 14th April, the free Easter trail will reveal 10 brightly coloured bunny vinyls hidden around the dock, each one containing a clue as to where the next bunny will be. Ultimately this will lead to the Easter Bunny who can be found hiding in his burrow at the end of the trail.

The adventure begins on the inner quay at The Nest, where children can pick up a free pair of rabbit ears and a sticker before embarking on the trail. After finding the first bunny here, simply scan the QR code with a mobile to reveal a rhyming riddle hinting at the next location.

After all of the bunnies have been found on Liverpool’s scenic waterfront, and the Easter Bunny tracked down, the final QR code will allow visitors to enter a huge competition. One lucky winner will be treated to the ultimate family-friendly weekend on the dock, complete with an overnight stay, delicious food and drink offerings and a goodie bag bursting with treats.

In addition to the Bunny Tail Trail, visitors can enjoy a variety of things to do on the Dock across the Easter half-term. Take a stroll around the Colonnades and snap a selfie with Aladdin’s giant golden lamp, or head to your favourite eating place on the Dock.


Check out the Titanic Hotel Liverpool this Easter and tuck into a chocolatey afternoon tea. Enjoy a range of fresh finger scones with jam and cream, and cakes adorned with chocolate. It is the perfect treat for those with a sweet tooth.

Right across the long Easter weekend, Titanic Hotel is serving up an exclusive hot cross martini in the Rum Bar. Savour the flavours of rum, Cointreau, Aperol and orange juice. Relax and take in the views overlooking the Stanley Dock.

A memorable Easter lunch can be enjoyed at Gusto with their roast dinners. There is a succulent selection: sirloin of beef, roast chicken, Porchetta-style pork belly and crackling, and a three-meat ragù shepherd’s pie. Enjoy their Sunday sharing roast with all the trimmings on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront.

Miller and Carter plan on creating a special Easter for diners from 22nd March to 7th April. You can opt for limited edition Australian Aberdeen black grain fed 10oz sirloin for the perfect melt-in-your-mouth meal. Savour a selection of exclusive cocktails until 14th April, including a chocolate orange spritz, rhubarb and custard ‘sweetini’ and Miller’s Velvet Martini.
