It’s a GIANT weekend for Liverpool

Royal de Luxe’s much loved Giants head back the streets of Liverpool

Will you be part of Liverpool’s Dream this weekend, as Royal de Luxe heads back to the city with its spectacular GIANTS? From Thursday 4 to Sunday 7 October, celebrate the return of the Giants at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool – not only can you enjoy some of the best vantage points on our doorstep, but you can sit back, relax, eat, drink and shop, or soak up even more of the city’s HUGE cultural offer.

Join in the city’s VAST street parade of the Giants, then head our way… Royal Albert Dock Liverpool is a COLOSSAL world heritage site – and the LARGEST collection of Grade I listed buildings in the country.


How much do you know about our EPIC history? The Dock is one of the country’s BIGGEST feats of engineering, and part of the city’s beautiful World Heritage site. This photo walk shows you some of the Dock’s more unusual views and secret sights.

Like the adventurous Giants, who left Liverpool by boat from the Dock last time they visited, our food comes from all four corners of the world. Take your pick from a GINORMOUS choice of cafés, bars and restaurants: Cuban spice at Revolucion de Cuba; mouthwatering Mediterranean flavours from Italian Gusto and Lunyalita’s  Spanish taste sensations; baking with a taste of South America at Rough Hand Made, or the freshest, tastiest local ingredients at Peaberry on the Dock. Sit back with coffees from around the world, or wines, beers and cocktails from every continent.

If the Giants have whetted your cultural appetite, make a weekend of it and try our COLOSSAL attractions and hotels. You’ll find out more about Liverpool’s long love affair with the sea when you head over to the Merseyside Maritime Museum. Or head to Tate Liverpool to see Op Art in Focus, a dazzling display of lines, geometric shapes and eye popping colour alongside the final weeks of the Liverpool Biennial – the largest festival of contemporary art in the UK.


And if big’s not your thing, that’s OK too. Browse our boutique shops and pop-ups, and cherish the local, unique and handmade with gifts from Liverpool’s finest designers, artists and craftsmen. Visit The Nest for a beautifully-curated selection from local artists; our Lost Soles pop-up for unique graphic prints, or Hanshaws’ Leather Workshop for handmade bags, satchels, belts and leatherwear.

So come join us. With that much to choose from you might want to book a night in one of our two hotels, just to make sure you can fit it all in. While the Giants spin their legendary tale on the streets of the city, it promises to be one BIG weekend at the Dock.
