Liverpool is the city that gave you The Beatles, fit fellas, more museums and galleries than anywhere else in the country* and a whole host of Instagrammable locations guaranteed to make your feed the envy of every wannabe ‘Social Influencer’.
*apart from London, obviously. *eye roll*
If your feed (which still isn’t in chronological order because Instagram still haven’t got round to giving the people what they want) hasn’t yet been graced with a picture of the umbrellas by Primark in town then chances are you’re not following anyone from Liverpool.
Every Scouser and their dog has now taken a snap of the iconic installation, created to raise awareness of ADHD and Autism, but that’s not where Liverpool’s Instagram opportunities end.
Spending just a few hours in Merseyside will guarantee you enough iconic images to fill your feed with for months to come and always hit those double or even triple figure likes.
You’re spoilt for choice with where to snap away across the city but we’ve managed to whittle it down to the…
Top 8 Most Instagram Friendly Locations in Liverpool:
1. The Baltic Triangle Liver Bird Wings
So turning 28 has been awesome 🎉Delicious brunch, went a bit mad on the Pier Head rides, hung out with the fam & heading for tea in our fave place soon! Thanks so much for all the birthday love ✌🏻💕🥂 . . #birthdaygal #liverpoollife #paulcurtiswings #icanfly #liverpoollove #liverpoolblogger #summerdays #lifestylebloggeruk #streetartliverpool #welovebirthdays
Paul Curtis should be given Freedom of the City for Services to Instagram with his art mural in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. Hundreds have already headed down to Jamaica Street to transform themselves into an iconic Liver Bird and bag themselves a brand new profile picture.
2. The Scouse Bird Shop
Finally the selfie wall is up in the shop! (Flower frame by my office neighbour, the wonderful Marcia at @flowerworx_liverpool – isn't it fantastic??? Such an amazing florist) If you come into the shop, take a selfie at the selfie wall and upload it to your social media and either check in or tag your location or whatever then you'll get 10% off whatever you buy in store – AND YES THERES A PROP BOX!!! Come in and try it out ❤️❤️
Okay, so I may be a little bias given that I’m writing this while sat in the Scouse Wonderland itself but it’s testament to the shop that it’s taken me so long to actually get round to doing any work as I’ve been too busy snapping away at everything around me.
Also, if you take a selfie with the fabulous floral frame that’s situated within the store than you get 10% off your shopping basket. So basically, you’re effectively getting paid to take some banging selfies – a fianically rewarding Instagram location is something I can certainly get on board with.
As for a sneak peek of the cute stuff you can buy in there, look no further.
The Scouse Bird Shop, Inside RENTASPACE, (big yellow building) 9 Dunnings Bridge Rd, Aintree, Liverpool, L30 6UU
3. Avocado is bae, Bold Street
Embracing my basicness with avocados and pink walls 🥑 . Download Festival is fast approaching and ngl I'm feeling totally unprepared. I need to double check my clothes, get a pac a mac, and buy some booze. Instead I'm just going to post pretty pictures and pretended everything is fiiine 😅💁♂️ . What are your festival essentials? 🤔
A millennial pink wall? Check. Located on a street full of independent bars, cafes and restaurants? Tick. A tribute to the vegetable that young people spend all their money on rather than a deposit for a house? Yup. This is a bit of street art made for Instagram.
Painted on the side of the Fashion Blogger Friendly eatery, Love Thy Neighbour, no trip to Liverpool is complete without a shot of social media’s favourite bit of graffiti.
4. The Cavern Club
Of course we had to mention a Beatles related location – you can’t visit Liverpool and get a few Fab Four related snaps. Mathew St is haven to get your fill of John, Paul, Ringo and George and you can even get a snap with Cilla too these days – two birds, one stone.
5. The Shankly Hotel
Absouuuuutly Loved having an exclusive preview into the @shanklyhotel new Garden of Eden suites. They're so amazing and so fabulous!!! ✨✨💖💖👑👑😍😍 can't wait to stay in them they love me already as ya can tell 😂👏🏽
It’s been called The Most Instagrammable Hotel Room in the UK and just one look at the Garden of Eden suite and you’ll know while. This celeb favourite is the ultimate room to stay in whilst visiting Liverpool to ensure you add a little something special to your selfies. When you’re done taking advantage of the floral décor you can head down to The Bastion Bar & Restaurant to have a drink amongst a host of iconic football memorabilia – After all, your Instagram feed needs some variety to keep your followers on their toes.
6. Ghetto Golf
Golf, the middle aged man’s favoured pastime, has had a hipster injection with Liverpool’s Ghetto Golf. There’s no sandwiches being eaten with knives and forks at this golf club; it’s more beer, burgers and neon signs as you make your way around the course.
7. The Albert Dock
Can't believe this weekend is over, don't know what to do with myself now 😂 if the sun could show its face again that would be boss thanks ta nice one. Is anyone going to V Fest? Got some festival blogs coming soon… Dress from @riverisland at @veryuk http://tidd.ly/eb396389 . . . #ScouseBirdBlogs #ScouseBirdProbs #liverpoolblogger #scouseblogger #discoverunder100k #bbloggers #ukbloggers #blogginggals #livbloggers #thegirlgang #fashionvlogger #fashionista #ukfashionblog #ukfashionblogger #ootd #whatiwore #bagporn #outfitonfleek #ensemble #newoutfit #fashionhaul #newedit #paydaytreat #shoppingspree #highstreet #designer #custommade

So it's time to leave the grey and white pictures of winter behind and to start watching the neighbourhood wake up. #️⃣Please hashtag your spring pictures #lovegeorgianquarter to be featured.
Without doubt the city’s most photogenic and aesthically pleasing postcode, the charming neighbourhood that is The Georgian Quarter is full of historic houses and buildings, theatres, restaurants and a million and one Instagrammable opportunities.
