Liverpool

As a major trading port travellers have been coming to Liverpool for centuries. Located in North West England, Liverpool is the sixth largest city in the UK. It sits within the county of Merseyside. Moreover, its status as a port city has contributed to its diverse population. Famous for The Beatles, world-class football as home to both Liverpool and Everton,  it was named as European Capital of Culture in 2008. Read on to hear about some of the best places to live in Liverpool. Additionally, find out where to buy or rent in the area. 

Getting around Liverpool

Liverpool has four main train stops that serve the four key areas of the city centre. These include Lime Street, James Street, Liverpool Central and Moorfields. Services run every 15 minutes from all regional stations into the city. It is therefore easy and quick to get around by public transport to live in Liverpool. 

In addition, there are many cultural hot spots, beautiful architecture and history and like most cities of the UK cities is undergoing a wave of regeneration.

Liverpool Neighbourhoods

The Georgian Quarter is seen as a cultural have. It has two cathedrals and many hidden gems, including the Everyman Theatre, The Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and countless bars and bistros. Residents can enjoy living in Georgian architecture. Similarly, or in a new development in one of Liverpool’s most stylish neighbourhoods. One residential development to rent in Liverpool is The Cargo Building. 

“City centre location is pretty nice. Its super safe as its right in the middle of town. Tescos is onsite which is great. There is nothing that I dislike about the area.” – Luke, Verified Resident of The Cargo Building

The Baltic Triangle has been named as one of the hippest places in the UK and The Cargo Building has received some of the highest ratings for a development on HomeViews. With independent bars, exhibition spaces and music venues it is not your average city centre. Another one of the best developments to live in Liverpool is Brunswick Park. The development is next to the station with direct links into central Liverpool.

“Good location, spacious, well kept” – Katie, Verified Resident of Brunswick Park.

Near to Woolton is Aigburth, an affordable, yet upmarket area. Located on the river Mersey are a number of large Victorian town houses as well as new developments to buy or rent in Liverpool with views of Sefton Park.

“Duke street is very close to everywhere but can get loud on the weekend.” – Anon, Verified Resident of Hudson Gardens

Moreover, Ropewalks is a hive of activity, and is popular amongst students and young professionals. Named after the rope making factories it is now home to independent shops, record shops, new eateries and clubs. Similarly, it is also home to some new developments such as Elysian Fields and Hudson Gardens.

Really good area, close to L1, many bus stops around to get anywhere you want. 10min walk to Bold St as well.

Please review your development:

Really good design, nice lounge, designer furniture and lighting, we study and chat in there all the time, the gym is always open and whenever a machine breaks it is fixed within 24 hours, everything is always clean too so no complaints from me about anything.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

There are loads of nurses and surgeons in the building so entering their yearly pumpkin carving competition was not a good idea.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Very soon. They have one guy doing all the fixing so they just put you on the calendar and generally within a few days he comes.

Princeton Place review

The location is perfect for commuting into the centre of Liverpool

Please review your development:

Location is perfect and the grounds are secure with a private parking space per flat. The management company are responsive and act on any issues effectively. The flat itself has everything you need but the build quality is poor. The electric boilers don’t have timers so are very expensive to run (turning it manually on and off everyday) and you can hear everything your neighbour above you is doing. If you can get past these, the rate is competitive compared to the rest of the city.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The electric boiler not being on a timer is an absolute pain. If you forget to turn it off, expect a large bill. If you forget to turn it back on, cold shower.

What is the best feature of your home:

Two bed and two bathrooms for the price with a balcony

central location

loud nextdoor pub

Please review your development:

design was very nice, clean, modern, can’t see a defect in that.. had all the facilities needed, central location.. i did struggle with installing the broadband though as i did not know the building only worked with specific providers, also very loud nextdoor pub was very annoying during weekends

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

i did not know there was literally a next door pub, if i had heard it that loud i wouldn’t have moved in

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

shut down the neighboring pub, was the worst thing about that place
