Marrakech is a place like no other – saturated with culture and decades of history, this Moroccan ‘Red City’ will leave you pining for more. With a fresh new Ryanair route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, we’d suggest that now’s the time to pack your bags and head to this fascinating destination! This brand new route will begin in November and operate twice weekly, so book your trip today and you’ll be souk shopping before you know it.
Why you should go
From magical mansions in the Medina to the gorgeous green space at La Mamounia, Marrakech is full of surprises waiting to be discovered. Whether you’re a lover of ancient history, or just fancy taking some time out in a traditional riad and spa, there’s endless activities to keep the whole party busy on your trip to Marrakech.
Why not spend your dirhams on authentic Moroccan goods at the souks and markets? No trip to Marrakech is completed without some retail therapy and with markets full of amazing knick-knacks, the temptation to splurge is real – don’t forget to brush up on you haggling skills! We would also suggest you save some time to visit Ali Ben Youssef Medersa for some breath-taking Moroccan interiors.
Other ways you can explore Marrakech and beyond is by riding a camel or on horseback – live like a local for a few hours of your day on a trip into the neighbouring Sahara desert. If the mayhem of the Medina gets too much, get some much needed ‘R&R’ at a hammam (Turkish bath), where you can indulge in luxurious spa treatments and massages.
When you should go
Hailed for its well-above average temperatures and year round sunshine, Marrakech is definitely a great holiday destination no matter the month. During the summer, temperatures can peak at a scorching 42°C, so try visiting during spring or autumn so you can make the most of being outdoors. You may also want to be aware that Ramadan can cause local stores and restaurants to close at this time.
Where you should stay
Fancy staying in a historical riad? This style of atmospheric Moroccan accommodation is now more accessible than ever and can be found for prices which suit all kinds of budgets. To get the full experience of Marrakech, stay in the medina, but if you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle, there’s lovely hotels just outside the city.
- Majorelle Garden – The Jardin Majorelle can be described as many things, but the word ‘enchanting’ springs to mind whenever it’s mentioned. Created by painter, Jacques Majorelle, this captivating botanical garden is also owned by Yves Saint-Laurent and partner, Pierre Bergé.
- Photography Museum – Located in the medina, the Marrakech Photography Museum has a vast array of old photographs spanning from the 1870s to the 1950s, showcasing the best of Morocco over the years.
- Kechmara – Take a step back from this energetic city with a delicious cocktail in hand on the roof terrace of Kechmara Bar.
