Living here

With its unique combination of skyscrapers, seafront, parkland, vibrant nightlife and beautiful historical architecture, there’s an awful lot to love about Liverpool. Liverpool shares all the attributes of any major European city, with its vibrant cosmopolitan culture and exceptional local amenities, while also retaining the benefits of its relatively smaller size.

Whether you prefer to live in the bustling city centre or suburbs, each area has its own distinct history, culture, things to see and activities to enjoy. Liverpool, like all cities, offers a variety of housing options at different price points including high-rise apartments and flats, terraced homes with backyards for summer barbecues, and detached and semi-detached homes with roomy bedrooms ideal for families or those who want a little more space.

Liverpool remains much more affordable than other cities in England with prices 41% lower than the national average. Over the last year the average property price was £207,158 and average rental cost for a flat was £780.

Take a trip to the Baltic Triangle or the Ropewalks area in the city centre and you’ll find plenty of independent shops, bars and restaurants where you can experience something totally unique to the city.

If you want a Cathedral, “we’ve got one to spare…” so goes the old Liverpool folk song. Just a short walk from each other you’ll find Liverpool Anglican Cathedral Britain’s biggest Cathedral and Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, contrasting in styles they are both unique their own way.

Liverpool Waterfront is a staple on your places to visit. It has beauty, it has history, culture, art, music food and drink in a breath-taking and iconic setting. Diverse in its appeal the waterfront offers everything from a sing-along in The Beatles Story, spectacular architecture to a perhaps windy, but picturesque riverside stroll.
