Charging Your Phone
If your phone runs out of power during your visit and you can't access your digital pass, don't worry!
Many of Liverpool's cafes, bars and hotels have plugs or USB ports where you can charge whilst you eat / drink and there are a number of phone and technology shops dotted around the city where you can buy wires, plugs and portable chargers. Liverpool One have an up to date list of the stores they have on-site, and you'll find others around Church & Lord St.
If you are staying at a hotel, a friendly request to your concierge or reception desk staff to print your pass is always worth an ask!
