Woolton is a fantastic little village and even boasts it’s own cinema dating back to 1927. There are a number of lovely pubs and restaurants in the area, including the latest offering from celebrity chef, Simon Rimmer. The high street has a great mix of local and national shops, including major supermarkets and a regular farmers market.

This postcode is full of rich history; Gateacre is noted for it’s tudor revival architecture and was one of the first conservation areas in the whole county. Gateacre also contains over 100 listed buildings, making it one of the most important areas in Liverpool.


The area is also noted for it’s influence on the Beatles. John Lennon’s childhood home in Woolton was subsequently bought by Yoko Ono and donated to the National Trust. In fact, it was at a Woolton Village Fete that John Lennon and Paul McCartney first met in 1957.


There are lots of great schools in the area, catering for both primary and secondary ages. Hunts Cross railway station is one of the major stops in Liverpool, providing a regular service to the inner city and John Lennon Airport. With lots of bus routes from L25 to the rest of Liverpool, you’re well connected.
