Famous for being the birthplace of The Beatles, Liverpool is well known for its music culture, historic buildings and old port. Located on the west coast, it’s home to Albert Dock, lined with restaurants and bars that sit overlooking the River Mersey. Along Great Howard Street, which runs parallel to the river, you’ll also find the Three Graces, made of the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building, all beautiful Grade listed buildings which form part of Liverpool’s UNESCO world heritage site.
Not only is it picturesque but it’s home to a 1.65million sq ft shopping centre, right in the city centre. With an open-air rooftop park, cinema and adventure golf course, it’s also home to some of the biggest high-street brands and luxury boutiques. Just a 5-minute walk from Gravity Residence it’s perfect for shopping. Better yet, right across the city you’ll find bars, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Whether you fancy a Sunday Roast or Dim Sum, there’s something for everyone. From well known chains like Pizza Express, to local independents. If you want to get dressed up then why not head to one of Liverpool’s rooftop bars for a cocktail or check out Panoramic 34, which just like the name, offers panoramic views of the city.
If you want to see Liverpool’s cultural side then there’s also plenty of museums, galleries and markets. Take the lift 410ft up to Radio City Tower or immerse yourself in The Beatles experience. Whatever you choose to do you’ll learn a lot about Liverpool’s history.
