Activities in Liverpool: The Seagull Trail!

Need activities in Liverpool? No worries about that! There are many things to do and follow there! As long as you avoid areas that look shady and keep in a good tourist sense- you’ll be safe!

Activities in Liverpool- Go trailing with seagulls!

On this photographic project that I have undertaken in Liverpool- we will be following up with seagulls and following their trails. Where do they go and listen to them socialise- it reminds you of the sea! Seagulls are seen as pests by many people but the truth is that seagulls are only like this towards us because we have taken their food source. Thus this has driven them towards our cities and urban developments.

Therefore, not only does going on a seagull trail recognise the impact humans have had on the climate and environment. It’s also a fun opportunity to explore the city through the lens of a seagull and explore parts you’ve never been to before! It’ll be an experience for a tourist who wants to experience a non-linear trail and the results are random!

There are many parts of the city centre which you can visit; for one of the trails- I had gone to Rupert Lane Recreational Ground. Though, personally, I must admit that the place wasn’t great at all when I visited. There was trash around the area and someone came up to me and started to sexually harass me. It turns out that it’s used as a cruising site for some men. So I would advise going to that area if you are going to Liverpool.

To advise the tourist- I would say you should go in the early hours to do a seagull trail. Think of it as a morning exercise but more fun and interesting! There are fewer people outside and traffic is quiet therefore you can follow the seagulls unhindered!

The seagull trail can help you reconnect with nature as well- especially in a city when we are all disconnected with concrete blocks everywhere. Sometimes a bit of green in a grey space really adds something to our happiness and wellbeing.

My Seagull Trails in Liverpool!

Here is a list of seagull trails I’ve done in Liverpool and where they have landed me. Most of them are links to blog posts as a short form of them is not as interesting as the full story!

  • 19th March 2022: A Seagull Trail – A Photographic Journey. This journey was done by following seagulls out of my student accommodation towards the World Museum. If you’ve not visited the world museum- you should! It’s got some great spectacles and especially so if you are touring with your kids! Usually, at the time I had carried this seagull trail out it was really busy. I had left at around 14:02 so there were a lot of tourists and keeping track of seagulls was hard. I would recommend doing the trail in the early morning where there isn’t much traffic so you can enjoy it more!
