Get ready for one of Britain’s

first urban glamping sites,

which opens on 6th July on the

in Liverpool, this new venue will

provide the ultimate urban oasis,

blending a unique glamping

experience with a cosmopolitan

city-centre vibe.

Situated above the Eden

rooftop, the new sun-drenched

spot will transport guests to a

festival-inspired getaway with

breathtaking views of Liverpool’s

spectacular skyline, along with

everything you need to throw the

perfect private party, including

luxury tipis, Jacuzzis, infinity

of the lavish tipis accommodates

up to six guests, and there’s a bar

and waiter service. Whether it’s

to celebrate a special occasion,

or just for a memorable day

and night out with friends, this

promises to be the most sought-

after venue this summer.
