These are the 18 reasons I can't wait for summer to finally arrive in Liverpool

Summer in Liverpool is truly something special.

While I’m definitely not looking forward to being surrounded by wasps and boiling in my non-air-conditioned flat, Liverpool is truly something else during the summer and I can’t wait for sunset walks, festivals and the buzz of tourists.

The warmer months see a host of free activities take place around the city, including the incredible Africa Oye festival at Sefton Park, and offers the opportunity to visit other parts of Merseyside - from beautiful beaches to popular ice cream shops.

It was difficult to choose my favourite things about summer in Liverpool but here are some of those I’m most looking forward to and some of my favourite places that are even better when the sun is shining. Let me know about your best-loved places and activities in the comments.
