Abode Area Guide – L17, L19, Aigburth, Lark Lane and Sefton Park

August 06th 2014

This month, we’re taking a look around L17, which is made up of the areas of Aigburth, Lark Lane and Sefton Park. Often regarded as quite an affluent area in the city, Aigburth is full of fantastic houses, flats and apartments that are available to both buy and rent.

Here at Abode, we have a great range of properties in the L17 area, ready for you to view and discover right now, and we hope our latest area guide will help you find your way around.


The area is famous for lots of things; being the home of Dixie Dean and Ricky Tomlinson, and for having lots of fantastic public spaces, to name a few.

Sefton Park is one of our favourite places in the city and its 235 acres regularly play host to a series of great (and free!) events such as the Liverpool International Music Festival and Africa Oye. There is a stunning Palm House in the park, which attracts lots of visitors all year round.


Take a short walk from Sefton Park and you’ll stumble upon Lark Lane, a bustling area popular with young professionals, families and students alike. With arguably the best bars and restaurants in Liverpool based on this little street, it’s the perfect place to head mid-week or for more of a celebration at the weekend.

If you head towards Aigburth Road, you can also make your way down to Otterspool and walk along the promenade towards the city centre for stunning views across the River Mersey. Liverpool’s Cricket Club is also based here in Aigburth and regularly hosts matches and international tournaments.


L17 is an ideally situated for all transport links. Aigburth, Cressington and St. Michael’s make up the three train stations in the area and there are regular bus routes from all spots in the vicinity, reaching to the city centre and the airport.

If you’re looking for the perfect place to start a family, there are a range of fantastic schools in the area. There’s a collection of nurseries, primary and secondary schools close by, along with one of the campus’ of Liverpool John Moore’s University, which is also based here.

Browse our properties available in L17 to buy here and to rent here.  Please pop into our South Liverpool office on Allerton Road to speak to one of our experienced and friendly agents- we look forward to welcoming you to the area soon!
