Tenants Guide to Liverpool

From the Fab Four to the Tate, Liverpool has been at the forefront of the UK’s music, art and culture scene for over 50 years.

An historic shipping port set on the shores of the Mersey, in recent years it has positioned itself as the home to a number of well-performing sectors, including a booming tourist industry, banking & finance, and a vibrant media community. In fact, Liverpool is the second most filmed UK city outside of London, often doubling for the likes of Chicago, New York, and Paris.

So, whether you enjoy shopping, live music, museums, or bar hopping, this wonderful city has you covered.

Here are a couple of our favourite places if you choose to rent in Liverpool.

Location, Location, Location

Graduates and young professionals will land on their feet thanks to the revitalised waterfront and abundance of new property developments. Meanwhile, families with young children will fall head over heels in love with the green and pleasant suburbs.

The Quiet Life

Beautiful leafy streets, a choice of good schools and homes, and ease of access to the city combine to make the affluent suburb of Aigburth an incredibly popular choice among professionals and those with young families.

With a mix of housing options, including Victorian-style terraced and semi-detached homes, this green and quiet area, located to the south of the city, found praise in a recent Sunday Times list as one of the top 50 urban places to live in the UK.

Bordering the picturesque Sefton Park, home to a boating lake, cafe, and kid’s playground, Aigburth is the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

And the quirky shops, galleries, restaurants and bars of the nearby bohemian Lark Lane are, in the opinion of the locals, a worthy rival to London’s Notting Hill.

When it comes to travel, you’re well-served, with a railway station on the Northern Line of the Merseyrail network, while the Liverpool John Lennon Airport is a mere ten minute drive away.

One of England’s Great Places

The regeneration of the riverside has seen a buzz return to Liverpool, and renting on the Waterfront puts you right at the heart of this lively, energetic city. With a number of new and longer-established developments to choose from, it’s little wonder so many are opting for city living over the quieter suburbs.

Voted the Royal Town Planning Institute's Greatest Place in England in 2015, it has attracted a real mix of inhabitants. Young families have settled here, enticed by the preschool on Princes Dock and the easy access to the city centre for work, while young professionals are lured by the sleek apartments, stunning views over the Mersey, and the fact that everything you could ever need or want from a modern city is within walking distance.

Breathtaking architecture meets you at every turn, perhaps none more so than the Three Graces, helping create an iconic skyline that rivals the best the world has to offer.

And with bars, restaurants, museums and galleries aplenty, you’ll never be bored again.

Whether you’re moving to Liverpool for work or family, there’s something to suit everyone in this beautiful city.
