Sunday Funday

Sundays are my favourite day of the week. I love making the most of them. I’ll either get up and out first thing, or I’ll have a lazy morning followed by a day out. I like to end my week on a good note, which is why I love making Sunday plans.

On the last Sunday of every month, for the rest of this year, I have something fun for you to do. The famous Bombed Out Church in Liverpool city centre is playing host to the Bombed Out Market. The Bombed Out Market is FREE to enter, and is open from 11am – 6pm.

This market first launched in March of this year, and will run for 10 months. Each month represents a year from the last 10 years since Liverpool was named Capital of Culture in 2008.

Liverpool, A City Of Culture

The bombed out market is just one of the city’s main events happening throughout this year to mark our 10th anniversary.

Since the Capital of Culture title was awarded to us the city has boomed. Liverpool has always been a wonderfully cultural city, with a constant buzz about it, but nowadays even more so.

There are so many more independent businesses opening up, and more and more high profile events are being hosted here. It’s no surprise that Liverpool was voted third place in Trip Advisor’s Best Destination in UK poll. We only narrowly missed out to two other big capitals, London and Edinburgh.

If you’re looking for a good city break, then Liverpool is your destination. On the few days you’ll visit, there will be always things to see and do.

Heading to the Bombed Out Market is a great way to get to know what the city has to offer. You’ll mingle the stalls of independent sellers, in a historic site.

The Bombed Out Market

St Luke’s Church, also known as the Bombed Out Church is a city landmark. It was bombed during the Blitz of WW2, and only the outside walls remain. It is a site to behold.

I’d highly recommend paying the small donation entrance fee and taking a look inside.

The market actually takes place in the gardens surrounding the church, these are free to enter. You will find a range of stalls from food, to jewellery, to house hold items.

 

The stalls that caught my eye last time I was there were The Chocolate Cellar, Windor’s Fruit Liqueurs, and The Great British Cheese Company. All the food ones for that matter. 

Get Mooching at the Market

It was just lovely to be out and about in the city and to see lots of different people enjoying the market.

Due to its brilliant location there were people there from all over the world that had come for the weekend. They got 2 for 1 really. They got to visit a historical part of Liverpool’s history, and shop from local businesses in the process.

This coming weekend is the next Bombed Out Market, and it’s set to be a lovely day. There are new and regular stalls at each market. You can keep up to date with who will be there via the Bombed Out Market’s social media pages.

Stalls to look out for ~ Cumbrian Pie Company, Caffe Ricardo for delicious coffee, and The Naked Candle Company.

If you’re looking to see why Liverpool was named Capital of Culture, and in my eyes still is, then this is your perfect event to head to. It’s a mix of new and old, and offers up Liverpool on a plate.

Will you be heading there this Sunday? Or will you try and make one in the coming months? Let me know and I might see you there!

Jessi xoxo

    I didn’t realise this was taking place in the bombed out church but now that I do it’s definitely on my list of places to go! I love a good market. Would you say it’s pushchair friendly there?

      It’s definitely push chair friendly. There are a few steps up to the gardens but they’re easily maneuvered if you’ve got someone to help you lift the pram. Once inside it’s all flat. You’d love it. It’s on again this sunday! x

    Fuming I missed this! I spend far too many Sundays hungover and that really needs to stop so I can get out and explore more! I love how you make Sundays super fundays – I’ve got into an awful habit of using them as the laziest of days!

      I don’t know what it is, but I think knowing i’m going to be shut away all week, I like to get out. The bombed out market is on again this Sunday, definitely worth the visit. X
