The bohemian heart of Liverpool, RopeWalks is always bursting with art, music and culture. Home to the quirky Bold Street, lined with an eclectic mix of independent stores, coffee houses and restaurants, as well as a variety of cultural institutions including FACT, the Grade I listed Bluecoat and St Luke’s, known locally as ‘The Bombed Out Church’.

The area is named after its unique large 19th century warehouse buildings, once used for rope making during Liverpool’s maritime boom, and now home to a bustling community at the centre of Liverpool’s independent scene. Not only is it a great place to shop, there are also some excellent choices if you fancy a tipple alongside some great music, or if you fancy dancing all night until the early hours of the morning, then head to some of our truly EPIC partner bars, including Empire, 81Ltd and Alma de Cuba.

Baltic Triangle

The Baltic is probably one of the most exciting and fast growing areas of Liverpool; once the well-worn factory and workshop of the city back in the slave trade of the 1800s, now a thriving and cutting-edge destination that is at the heart of the Independent Liverpool scene and is home to a number of digital and creative businesses. Unlike other cultural quarters of Liverpool, the Baltic is not polished and prepared, it’s raw, it’s organic and it’s exciting. Whatever the reason for your visit to Liverpool, if you want a real taste of creativity, head down to the Baltic.


Liverpool Waterfront is a great place to visit with a whole host of things to do in a breath taking and iconic setting. Diverse in its appeal the waterfront offers everything from a sing-along in The Beatles Story to a quiet riverside stroll. Where else could you marvel at truly magnificent mercantile architecture like the famous Liver Building; enjoy world-class contemporary art at Tate Liverpool, explore the Merseyside Maritime Museum, visit the International Slavery Museum. But this would not be a waterfront without the River Mersey, the network of historic docks and the canal link which allows evocative narrow boats to moor right in the heart of Liverpool. Relaxing, of course, but our water is also a place to have fun!

St George’s Quarter

St George’s Quarter proudly sports the UNESCO World Heritage Status crown. A must-visit for lovers of culture, Liverpool’s St George’s Quarter boasts some of the finest Victorian architecture in Britain. Just outside Lime Street station, step into the culture as soon as you arrive. It houses the magnificent St George’s Hall, The Liverpool Empire Theatre, The Royal Court Theatre and just a short walk away, The Playhouse Theatre. Together with the World Museum, Walker Art Gallery and Central Library, William Brown Street is an entire street featuring ONLY cultural attractions in magnificent buildings, all of which are completely free to enter.

Cavern Quarter

Mathew Street is a vibrant focal point in The Beatles history and the city’s nightlife scene. It is home to the musical ‘wall of fame’ and a tribute statue of John Lennon that is now the focus of many worldwide visitor’s selfies.

Take a wander down the historic street and you’ll be welcomed by street buskers and the sounds of the Cavern Club’s daily residents projecting through the speakers direct from the vaults of the underground club.


Liverpool has a large multicultural population, of which a high percentage is Chinese. The Chinatown here was the first to be established in Europe and is easily recognised by the beautifully crafted Chinese Arch that adorns the entry. The arch was imported piece by piece from Shanghai, a city which Liverpool is twinned with. The ceremonial arch stands at 13.5 metres tall and is the largest in Europe, in fact it is the tallest standing arch in any Chinatown outside of mainland China.

Georgian Quarter

The idea to build a grand housing area in the Canning area of Liverpool started in 1800 when city surveyor John Foster Snr. created a blueprint to make a grid plan of housing. This was at a time when Liverpool’s elite could afford luxurious surroundings. Over the next 100 years, a large number of elegant town houses, mainly in the Georgian style were built. Hope Street, at the core of the Georgian Quarter is a winner in the Academy of Urbanism Awards for ‘Best Street’. The streets that radiate from Hope Street and Rodney Street are all lined with beautiful terraced houses. This area is also home to some of Liverpool’s finest restaurants, The Art School, 60 Hope Street and London Carriage Works – experts in modern cuisine. There’s also a number of cosy neighbourhood bistros, including The Quarter on Faulkner Street and the Pen Factory at the other end of Hope Street.

One street, two cathedrals; Hope Street is bookended by Liverpool’s two cathedrals. The 60s silhouette of the Metropolitan of Christ the King at one end and the world’s second largest Anglican Cathedral at the other. Between these two architectural wonders lies one of a different kind, the Everyman Theatre (RIBA Stirling Prize- winning), along with the recently transformed Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, now 175 years old. Within the Georgian Quarter is where you’ll also find the Paul McCartney-inspired Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts.
