For the third instalment of our Abode area guides, we’ll be focusing on one of our favourite areas of Liverpool, the city centre.
Liverpool is famous for many things; being named the Capital of Culture in 2008, The River Mersey, The Beatles, The Albert Dock to name just a few, and the city centre is the perfect place to start exploring all of the wonderful sights and experiences on offer. Recently, the city has enjoyed a bit of a revival, with previous neglected areas gaining a new lease of life. This is especially true of The Albert Dock and The Baltic Triangle areas of the city, who have seen a real regeneration in recent months.
Whatever you’re searching for in a new area, Liverpool town centre can provide. The city has a wealth of restaurants and bars, and is renowned for it’s fantastic and varied nightlife- whether you’re looking for a quiet drink after work or a wild Saturday night. A surge in independent Liverpool businesses has also made city centre living even more special; just take a stroll down Bold Street or towards The Baltic Triangle for something a little out of the ordinary.
If yore looking for somewhere to help maintain your fitness, there are multiple gyms in the vicinity, including ‘The Gym Group,’ which has a central location by Chavasse Park.
The city centre is perfectly placed for transport links; with two main bus hubs serving different areas of the city, along with a major railway station, with regular routes up and down the country. If you fancy riding the waves, the Mersey Ferry is the perfect option for getting across our famous river, plus you’re only about 25 mins away from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, if you want to fly further afield.
Depending on the age of any children you may have, the city centre has both primary and secondary schools to choose from, including Archbishop Blanch High School. We’re famous for our excellent universities in Liverpool, and the main campuses for The University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores and LIPA are based right in the city centre.
