Still regarded by many as a great Victorian city, in recent years Liverpool has undergone a renaissance which has rejuvenated the city centre and rebuilt its reputation as a diverse and energetic place to live, work and play.
Iconic structures such as the Albert Dock, the Royal Liver Building (home of the famous Liver Birds) and the Port of Liverpool Building nestle alongside much younger neighbours, such as the BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena, and the giant leisure, retail and residential complex, Liverpool One.
Aside from an abundance of shops, pubs, clubs, restaurants, comedy clubs and live music venues, Liverpool also offers all the amenities that you would expect to find in a modern city, such as childcare facilities, public and private healthcare services, state and private schools, places of worship, and sport and leisure centres.
The regeneration of the city centre and waterfront means that when it comes to urban living, there are plenty of options available from one and two bedroom apartmentsfor professional or students at Liverpool university.
Outside the city centre, Liverpool’s suburbs offer a range of good quality properties to rent, including converted flats and traditional style terraced and detached homes.
Key sectors for employment are typically automotive, life sciences, contact centres, ICT and new media, ports and distribution, food and drink, education and skills, creative industries, retail and tourism, and professional and financial services.
The city has two cathedrals and there are many important historical landmarks, including the childhood homes of Lennon and McCartney, and public spaces scattered throughout the city that offer residents and visitors alike an opportunity to reflect and unwind.
