William Brown Street, Liverpool. Nearest station - Liverpool Lime Street.
Liverpool is unique because you have views of the River Mersey, the Wirral Peninsular and North Wales on one side of the City and views of Lancashire/Merseyside and Cheshire around the Runcorn area on the other side including the Stanlow refinery site.
The best place to see these views is from a bus especially on the following routes - 500 from Liverpool Airport which travels by the river into town via the old festival site, 437 Liverpool to West Kirby especially when it descends Bidston Hill and you are sitting on the top deck, 75/74/78 to Halewood when they are approaching Woolton Village via Gateacre Brow and Acrefield Road and 48/48a to Southport or in this case from Southport because you can see a lot ranging from Ormskirk to North Wales Plus the wind farms in the sea as you travel along the Formby Bypass. The buses aren't always double deckers but you see quite a long way across the region including Winter Hill and the Pennines on very clear days.
You will see the Runcorn Bridge, Fiddlers Ferry Power station, Frodsham and Helsby Hill and a wonderful sunset over West Kirby on the bus routes mentioned above (all depending on the weather of course which can limit any views as well as enhancing them from various parts of Liverpool).
Another tip to get a good view of the region is to walk around Woolton Village including Woolton Woods and Speke Road which is the best place to look at the scenery which many television programmes miss when they film in Liverpool. I lived in Woolton as a child and it was wonderful to see the twinkling lights of Huyton and Prescot amongst other places as I walked home from school along Speke Road. This area of Liverpool is very hilly and can be viewed as you come in on the M62, rail or bus from the airport.
Woolton Woods is one of three woods in the area which I think is another unique feature of a city in England outside Greater London.
I enjoy looking at the scenery when travelling around and I hope that visitors will look out of buses/cars and trains when visiting Liverpool and Merseyside.

One of the classiest Indian restaurants in Liverpool, and one of the many different eateries in Lark Lane. The food is delicious (all of it), the service is second-to-none and the place oozes luxury, cleanliness and attention to detail. Large, exotic menu. £15 to £20 per head, so not especially expensive.
15-21 Lark Lane
Between Aigburth Road and Sefton Park
St. Michael's Station is 10 mins. walk away.
