About the area

The Times has described our vibrant world city as ‘the coolest place to live in the UK’. A former European Capital of culture, we have been highlighted by ‘Rough Guides’ as one of the “top ten cities to visit in the world”.

When you think about Liverpool, what comes to mind?

  • Home of the Beatles
  • Two Premier League football clubs
  • Thriving nightlife

Did you know that Liverpool also has…

  • The most museums and galleries outside of London
  • Over 80 languages spoken at home
  • 54 million visitors annually
  • A UNESCO World Heritage Site (our skyline) just like the Great Wall of China
  • A home to 50,000+ students (with six in ten graduates remaining in the city)
  • Four Universities leading a thriving knowledge economy
  • Sandy beaches just twenty minutes from the city including spectacular sculptures by Antony Gormley
  • More festivals, free events and city-wide celebrations than any city outside of London
  • Unique architecture home to film and TV programmes such as “Fantastic Beasts”, “Peaky Blinders” and “War of the Worlds”
  • Knowsley Safari Park, offering unforgettable fauna and flora encounters, from wildebeests to wildflowers.

It is not just about the city, within a few hours you can find yourself at Snowdonia’s peaks, losing yourself in the landscapes of the Lake District; the Peak district offers both an above-ground majesty and a labyrinth of beautiful cave systems.

A true gateway to the rest of the UK and the wider world with fantastic transport links including two international airports within easy reach of the city, national rail and highly connective motorway systems.

Be a part of it, from our historic Georgian Quarter to the vibrant waterfront and all the parks, bars and museums in between; Liverpool has more to offer than you may have originally thought – come take a look!
