Making Friends in Liverpool
Making friends as an adult can be hard, but signing up to GirlCrew Liverpool should definitely be your first stop! GirlCrew has groups in cities all over the world and over 45,000 members. But we think of them more as friends than members and have even had the pleasure of meeting some of the Liverpool crew when they visited Ireland last Christmas. Whether you’re new to Liverpool, travelling through or visiting, or have lived there forever, you’re bound to find someone who shares a few common interests or the same sense of humour in GirlCrew. The group is open to all women over 25, with no upper age limit and there are always new members joining so don’t feel worried about everyone already knowing each other. We’ve all been newbies once! Hit the link below to join the Liverpool squad or check out our other city groups here.
If you’re into fitness and getting active, why not pop over to Sefton Park with some of the girls for a run or a stroll. They recently completed a marathon there so if that’s your bag, we’re sure you’ll find a few girls to train with too. If you’re looking for lunch or brunch somewhere after, check out Lark Lane’s Moon Pi deli. If you’re a tourist, definitely dive into some of the many historical music spots and see what Beatle mania was all about in the city it started in.
Liverpool has a plethora of bars and pubs, so joining the GirlCrew group is a good way to see where’s best to go. The girls are always knowledgeable about the latest, greatest spots, old favorites and knowing what would suit the kind of night or music you’re looking for. If you’re up for some mid-week evening lols, check Marantos Lark Lane to see if there are any pub quizzes on.
