Favourite area of Liverpool:

The Georgian Quarter. Liverpool has many layers of History each telling the story of the trends , functions and pressures of the time, often represented  in the Architecture. None more so than the area defined as the Georgian Quarter.  It has everything…!

The area began as Canning in the 1800s providing fashionable townhouses for the wealthy, mostly in the Georgian style. As the decades passed, the wealthy moved out to the suburbs and the area continued to expand and change, with war damage and demolition.  By the 1960s the area became known for cheap student accommodation, falling into disrepair despite the backdrop of  Europe’s fifth largest Cathedral .

Following the unrest of the 1980s, much needed investment slowly came to the area and its popularity was rejuvenated as it became home to some of the City’s favourite bars and restaurants.  The area is a strong student hub that continues to reinvent itself as a vibrant backdrop to some of the best Architecture in this (or any) City. There is everything from the elegance of the terraces, the drama of the Anglican Cathedral (enhanced by Brock Carmichael in 2006 and 2007 ) to the Streamline Moderne style of Philharmonic Hall (restored by Brock Carmichael in 1981 and 1986) and the Stirling Prize winning Everyman theatre (Howarth Tompkins).

Something for everyone.
