How to find Quirky Quarter

Stepping Through the Portal

The entrance to the Quirky Quarter itself sets the tone for the experience. Eschewing a typical entrance, it transports you through a whimsical portal into the craziness ahead.

Weirdness of Quirky Quarter:

The heart of Quirky Quarter lies within the various exhibits. Each one offers a unique blend of the playful and the perplexing. From the gravity-defying “Upside Down Room” to the mind-bending “Infinity Tunnel,” the exhibits encourage active participation.

Optical Illusions and Playful Puzzles

Optical illusions take center stage in several exhibits, challenging your perception and understanding of reality. The “Ames Room” creates a disorienting experience where objects appear to shrink or grow, while the “Hollow Head Illusion” provides a hilarious opportunity to see your disembodied head on a platter.

Puzzles of varying difficulty add another layer of engagement. Some cater to quick visual observation, while others require more strategic thinking. Navigating through laser mazes or escaping from a virtual reality experience adds a layer of excitement and a sense of accomplishment when successfully completed.

Quirky Quarter is Instaworthy

The “quirky” aspect truly shines through in the numerous photo opportunities scattered throughout the exhibits. From oversized furniture to wacky props, the setup encourages creativity and laughter. Pictures for instagram adds another layer of entertainment and allows visitors to create memories of their adventure.

Staff at Quirky Quarter

The friendly and enthusiastic staff adds to the overall positive atmosphere. They are readily available to assist with any questions or offer guidance through the various activities. Additionally, its well-maintained and clean which makes it a more enjoyable experience.


Some consider the cost of entry to be a bit high, especially for families with multiple children. While the experience offers an hour or so of entertainment, the price point may not be suitable for all budgets.

Additionally, a few might find the difficulty level of the puzzles more suitable towards families and younger age groups.


Overall, the Quirky Quarter Liverpool provides a fun and engaging hour or two out, definitely something to be added to a trip to Liverpool rather than a reason for a visit.
