As a provider of parties, celebration and event days filled with team games and inflatable courses since 2015, Mersey Games know a thing or two about fun parties in Liverpool. Here, we’ve put together some of our top tips to consider when party planning in this great city and shared some of our favourite party activities to enjoy.

Whether you’re looking to join the thousands of hen parties on Mathew Street and Concert Square or want a cultural or retro alternative, there are indoor and outdoor options available all year round so you never have to worry about the British weather putting a damper on your plans.

Plan your party activity

When planning fun party ideas in Liverpool, there really is something to suit everyone. Liverpool is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city with plenty of culture and relaxation available to balance its infamous party vibes. Whether your mates are into geek chic, want to be pampered or puzzled, are looking for culture, or all out fun and adrenaline filled activity, Liverpool has it all!

Finding an activity that suits the tastes, abilities and interests of larger groups can be tough but options like Mersey Games, where party goers can opt in or out of activities, spectators are welcome, large groups of 20 + are catered for and there is even has a bar to recover in afterwards – sounds like it could tick the boxes of even the fussiest members of the group!

Why does Liverpool host so many great parties?

Planning a party in a lively, and electric destination like Liverpool means those that are travelling from further afield will be spoilt for choice when it comes to things to do, places to visit, places to stay and ease of getting around on public transport so you can rest assured there will be plenty to keep them entertained after the main party event. For those closer to home, it’s clear to see why Liverpool attracts so many stag, hen and birthday parties each year.

From the views of the River Mersey, exploring the Albert Dock, taking in the culture and history of the two cathedrals, enjoying the Beatles nostalgia, shopping till you drop or enjoying a pampering session and enjoying a night out in some over 200 bars and pubs, it’s a town with plenty to offer its residents and visitors alike.

With retro themed activities being at an all time high in popularity, options like Ghetto golf, balls deep (an adult ball pit..!) and roxy ballroom (which is less ballroom dancing and more indoor ball games) could be right up your street. Perhaps if your mate is a proper plonker, a visit to the only fools and horses bar could be just the ticket followed by a visit in your finest flat-cap to the peaky blinders bar in Cains Brewery Village.

Fun Indoor party ideas Liverpool

We all know the Great British weather can be unpredictable but this shouldn’t be a reason to cancel your party plans. These great party ideas can be enjoyed in Liverpool indoors, so whatever the weather outside is doing so all you have to worry about is finding a date that everyone can make!

Lay down a track

If you fancy yourself as the next Mariah Carey or think you and your mates could give the Beetles and the Spice Girls a run for their money, a CoverStar Experiences in Liverpool could be right up your street. Catering for Stag parties, Hen parties, birthday bashes and solo stars in the making, you can enjoy a professional recording experience in the studio or get them to bring the music to you with their portable studio.

Visit an alternate reality

If you’ve ever fancied yourself as Keanu Reeves in the Matrix, wished you could be a character in a video game, or fancy your chances in the Upside Down world of Stranger Things, a virtual reality experience will bring a whole new dimension of fun to your party and provide hours of entertainment as you watch your friends take on an unseen world right in front of your eyes.


Indoor paintball

A slightly more physical option for those looking to put their commando and paintball dodging skills to the test whilst having fun! Birthday parties at Ultimate Indoor Paintball provide all the benefits of a large outdoor playing arena but in a safe and warm indoor environment with no mud! Groups of any size can be accommodated and all the safety gear you need to get shooting is provided. https://paintballingliverpool.co.uk/

Mersey Games

We might be a little biased here but our indoor sessions that run from October to mid March are awesome! After the success of our outdoor events we brought them inside in 2018 so they could be enjoyed all year round. The indoor party events combine all of our usual bonkers fun, inflatables and games from outside with the benefit of staying warm and dry!

Ever tried bowling straight when dizzy? Penny Lane Bowling will provide lots of laughs as you take on this challenge, and in Human Foosball you and your friends will become the footballers in a life-size version of this popular tabletop game. The Bevy Bungee run challenges you to get your pints on to the furthest tray…but it’s not as simple as it sounds because the harder you run to reach the tray, the harder you fall! These are just some of the activities offered at the Mersey Games indoor venue in Liverpool and you can see the pictures and find out more about them here.

Ghetto Golf

When a full 18 hole course is too much effort and you’re more of a fan of crazy golf anyway, what do you do? Head to Ghetto Golf in Liverpool for all the fun of crazy golf surrounded by street art and graffiti whilst enjoying great food and drinks listening to DJ sets from up and coming artists.

Fun outdoor party ideas in Liverpool

There is no better feeling than getting outdoors when spring arrives after a long cold winter or being in the open air with your friends in the heat of summer having the time of your life so here are some of our favourite party activities to enjoy outside in Liverpool. Pick your favourite, find a date and get party planning!

Bubble Football

You don’t need to be able to bend it like Beckham to have a great time at this outdoor party event in Liverpool. Bubble football allows you to bounce and crash into your competitors to steal the ball back and what’s not to love about running around wearing a giant zorb bubble from the waist up? Suitable for 13 years old and up, with stag and hen packages to choose from, this is a party idea you can enjoy whatever the weather. Games are held on pitches with full drainage facilities and you won’t get your hair wet if it rains when you’re inside a giant bubble either!

Mersey Games

If you don’t want to tie yourself down to one sport or one activity, Mersey Games is the number one outdoor activity in Liverpool and could be a great option for your birthday, stag or hen party. With a wide selection of games, inflatables and fun on offer, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The Mersey Games bring friendly competition, fun, adrenaline and the great outdoors together between March and September for groups to enjoy 9 games including welly wanging and Liverpudlian themed games like the ‘Souse Dual, ‘You’ll never walk alone’ and ‘the Scouse Shower’ to name a few!

Mersey Games have been awarded 5 stars on Trip Advisor from over 300 satisfied customers so if you want to follow in the footsteps of thousands of groups enjoying memorable party events with our team, you’re in the right place.

On the day, your group will have a personal guide to take you through all the games on offer and we can cater for all ages, abilities and fitness levels. You can choose to take part in as much or as little as you like and we even take photos for you so all you have to do is focus on having fun. There are prizes on offer for the winner if you’re feeling competitive and if you’ve got any energy left after your day at our facility in South Liverpool, we’re less than 4 miles to the city centre so after enjoying a drink at our bar, you can continue your party long into the night in this amazing city.

A recent hen party review on Trip advisor said: “My amazing hens planned this as a surprise activity last week and it was so much fun! We laughed from start to finish and everything was so well organised, would highly recommend it!”

Whatever style of event you choose, we hope you and your friends have an amazing day and to ensure you don’t forget the little details, be sure to consider the following then putting your plans together.

      • Accommodation: Having your base camp at a hotel nearby to your event will mean everyone can bring a change of clothes and dump their kit before enjoying the rest of day or evening activities.
      • Changing Facilities: With changing facilities available at all of our sites, you can freshen up and get ready for the next party of your party celebrations.
      • Parking & Transport: Parking is available on site at Mersey Games and public transport is easily accessible nearby.
      • Clothing: Depending on the activity you choose, wear suitable clothing. If active bring things stretchy that you don’t mind getting sweaty. If Fancy dress is on the agenda, make sure everyone is informed with plenty of time to prepare!
      • Spectators: Not everyone will want to get involved in your party activity but they might want to come along to enjoy the atmosphere. Make sure you’ve made provisions for spectators on the day. It’s worth noting that Mersey Games doesn’t charge for spectators – bonus!
      • Refreshments: We have an onsite bar at our outdoor site where you can enjoy a cold drink overlooking the River Mersey – a great end to the day of activities.
