10 years ago Liverpool won the Capital of Culture award and, over the years, the city has continued to blossom. Much of Liverpool’s culture is based upon its expansive history and heritage and diverse population. However, Liverpudlians are united in their Love for Liverpool FC, so be prepared to get patriotic if you move to the area!
If you are wanting to move to or from Liverpool, get in touch with Britannia Cestrian. They are located in Deeside (just 35 minutes from Liverpool) and offer their removal and storage services to those living in North Wales, Chester, Flintshire, and the Wirral Peninsula.
Moving to Liverpool
Liverpool is more than just the city centre. Countless towns and villages make up the area as a whole and for those moving to the area, it can be a daunting prospect deciding where to live.
Students studying at any of Liverpool’s universities tend to settle in apartments around Hope Quarter. This area is very fashionable and close to the university campuses, Philharmonic Hall, and countless bars and venues.
Similarly, the Ropewalk area tends to attract a younger crowd, usually professionals starting out their careers in Liverpool. East Village, Henry Street and Campbell square have a bohemian vibe and there are many quirky apartments, some in converted warehouses.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Liverpool Business District is a residential area favoured by high-flying professionals who want quick access to the city centre by foot but also a slower pace of life. Similarly, The Docks is an area of Liverpool popular with businessmen and women but apartments come with a premium price tag.
Restaurants and Bars in Liverpool
If there is one thing Liverpudlians love as much as football it is pubs. As you stroll the city you will find every manner of themed bar, classy cocktail joint and traditional northern pub. There is a huge selection of establishments to choose from and you are guaranteed a good night if you stay out past the watershed.
Residents say that eating out in Liverpool has developed over the years and become a real highlight of the city. Areas such as Ropewalks, Wood Street, Bold Street and Fleet Street are home to some fantastic eateries, but most tend to head to the popular Concert Square which delivers everything from Arabic street food to traditional Italian fare.
Elsewhere, many of the city’s bars also do food, the PanAm at Albert Dock being a prime example. And as the home of the UK ‘s oldest Chinese community, Chinese restaurants are found in abundance.
Transport Links Liverpool
By far the busiest train stations in Liverpool are Liverpool Lime Street and Liverpool Central. However, there are other stations dotted in and around the city and residential outskirts too. There are four main rail stops that serve the four key areas of the city centre; Lime Street, James Street, Central and Moorfields. Merseyrail look after these stations and run all services from them. Each station links the city centre with other stations in the Merseyside area, with most trains setting off every 15 minutes. Alternatively, all local and regional buses call at Queen Square and Paradise street in the city centre.
Surrounded by the M53, M62, and M57, drivers are spoilt for choice with road links in and out of Liverpool. An extensive route of local and regional buses also run throughout the city centre and surrounding areas. Liverpool John Lennon Airport is located to the south of the city and provides both national and international flights for business flyers and holidaymakers.
