About Jessica B
Lives in Liverpool, United Kingdom
Since Apr 2013
18-24 year old female
I was born and raised in Liverpool and have spent my life living between Liverpool and Manchester. I also spent a large chunk of 2014 working in Rio de Janeiro (amazing!). I especially love travelling to places with natural beauty and last year I fulfilled my dream of seeing penguins in the wild in the south of Argentina. My next adventure? Who knows!?

Nature & Wildlife Areas
Located just 10 minutes’ drive from the city centre, Sefton Park is Liverpool’s biggest park and home to the beautiful Victorian-era Palm House. There is also a huge children’s playground, a lake, and the bandstand is said to have been the inspiration for the Beatles’ 'Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club'.
At low tide you can walk the 2 mile route out to Hilbre Island, and then watch the tide come up and surround the island. A popular destination for bird-watching, several species of seals can also be spotted from here.
This park is home to over 700 types of exotic animals including lions, tigers and rare white rhinos. Drive your car through the enclosures to get up-close-and-personal with these majestic species or visit them on foot via the park’s walkable areas.
This 500 acre country estate in the north of the city is home to an Edwardian mansion house, a beautiful Victorian walled garden, a fully working farm, an adventure playground and riding stables. Guaranteed to keep everyone entertained for the full day!
Liverpool’s world famous waterfront encompasses the 'three graces': the Liver Building, the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building. The nearby Albert Dock is also well worth a visit.
One of the best places to see the rare red squirrel in its natural habitat, this reserve follows a gentle walking trail through a pinewood forest and grassy sand dunes.
Home to the world-famous art exhibition 'Another Place': these 100 life-size statues stretch for 3km along the shore. A quiet and peaceful beach, this is the ideal place for a gentle stroll.
One of Liverpool’s most popular public parks, Calderstones is named for the six Neolithic sandstone boulders found here. They are believed to have formed part of a druidical circle that is older than Stonehenge. The park is also home to a 1000 year old oak tree.
Otterspool Promenade follows the bank of the river Mersey from the south of the city right into the heart of the city centre. An ideal place for walkers and cyclists, there are plenty of places to stop off for a picnic, and there’s great views of the the Clwydian Hills in north Wales on a clear day.
This Tudor mansion house sits in the middle of a beautiful estate on the bank of the River Mersey. The formal garden and surrounding woodlands and meadows provide an oasis of calm, far-removed from the busy city.
