The Liverpool Dream
A Tapestry of Diverse Culture, History & Breath-taking Architecture
Liverpool is a multi-cultural hub and home to an increasing level of international investment. Offering young professionals across the UK a platform to thrive, lose yourself in the rhythm of Liverpool’s beating heart as you live, laugh and love in this spectacular city.
Dream Big & Maybe Own Your First Home
Liverpool offers the work life balance that many London professionals can only dream of. With a considerably lower cost of living than in the South, salaries for graduates can start at around £25,000, enabling many young professionals the opportunity to save and eventually get their foot firmly on the UK property ladder. The average property price in Liverpool is £150,050 and thanks to current Government initiatives to help first time buyers, buying your own home in Liverpool is an achievable goal for many young professionals. While you’re saving up, you can take full advantage of the number of new young professional city centre apartment developments that often include gym memberships and private cinemas.
Baltic Triangle- Liverpool’s Tech Epicentre
Liverpool is experiencing huge international investment, helping to sculpt the city into a Northern powerhouse and attract further overseas investment. There is no place that is benefiting more from such financial growth than the Baltic Triangle, Liverpool’s very own Silicon Valley. Home to local start-ups and tech entrepreneurs, the Baltic Triangle is the place to go for networking, street art and that all-important caffeine fix. Supporting a diverse community of innovation, the Baltic Triangle offers funding for projects set to transform the world as we know it.
New Chinatown – Awaken the Dragon
Chinatown in Liverpool is the oldest Chinatown in the whole of Europe and a microcosm of Chinese culture and cuisine. It is currently undergoing one of the most exciting development projects in the UK, New Chinatown. With the project’s motif, the awakening dragon, a powerful Chinese symbol of global power, expect luxury city centre accommodation, roof top bars with waterfront views and new Asian inspired restaurants.
Hollywood Approved Architecture
Liverpool’s exquisite Georgian quarter attracts budding photographers and Instagram enthusiasts with its elegant town houses and neighbourhood bistros. Not to mention, its beauty is Hollywood approved, with several locations across the city being used as backdrops for blockbuster movies such as The Dark Knight, Sherlock Holmes, The Fast & the Furious and most recently Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, another of J.K Rowling’s masterpieces.
A Breath of Fresh Air
Liverpool is perfectly located on the North West coast, meaning easy access to North Wales’ astounding beauty. Take a day trip to Snowdonia National Park, the best place to kick start a new adventure. Luxury spa escapes, glamping and yurts are just some of the overnight accommodation available for a cheeky weekend away. With surfing, camping, flying, sailing, rock climbing and even clay pigeon shooting on offer, there are plenty of ways to burn off some steam and all only a short drive away from Liverpool city centre.
If you fancy driving a little further afield, head to The Lake District, less than two hours’ drive away from Liverpool. Wander through the cobbled streets of the many quintessentially English villages and taste some of the local treats, such as Kendal Mint Cake.
Relive the Legacy of The Beatles
Liverpool was placed firmly on the International stage thanks to the talent and fame of a group of local lads. The Beatles, formed in 1960, have given Liverpool a reputation to be proud of. You can’t live in Liverpool without being enthralled by the vibrant music scene. From the Liverpool International Music Festival to Creamfields and Lightnight, there are plenty of options to suit all music tastes.
If you’re a big Beatles fan, Albert Dock will certainly satisfy your obsession with all things strawberry fields, with statues dedicated to the global superstars, and Liverpool’s very own yellow submarine anchored at the dock. At night, Albert Dock is transformed into a lively mix of tourists and locals who head to the many restaurants and cocktail bars along the waterfront. Check out Pirate Cove for a rum infused cocktail or two.
Grab your bank card and get ready to do some serious shopping. Liverpool will impress any shopaholic with its wide range of outlets and shopping centres designed to provide ultimate retail therapy. Enjoy Liverpool One, home to luxury brands and high street stores, all beautifully laid out over two floors or head to St John’s Market for catwalk fashion on a modest budget. Bold Street is ideal for the hipsters amongst us, with quirky street food, knick-knacks and organic beauty products from a range of mainly independent shops.
Dine Out like a King
In Liverpool, you can dine on food from almost any corner of the world, with a strong Asian influence thanks to Chinatown. Italian, French and Indian are popular around the bustling Albert Dock, but Bold Street is Liverpool’s the crowning glory. With Lebanese street food alongside a refreshing mango lassie, munch your way up Liverpool’s hipster chic street.
The Beautiful Game
A rivalry like no other, dividing families and dominating most conversations in taxis, pubs, clubs and even on public transport, football is big business in Liverpool. The question is, are you a red or a blue? The rivalry is at its most heated during derby days when the two city teams come together to fight for bragging rights. Dedicated fans will flock to either Anfield or Goodison Park, donning their team’s colours, to nervously watch their team play. The atmosphere is electric and well worth a visit. Feel free to spark up a conversation with any local relating to football and more often than not you’ll spend a good few minutes discussing the highs and lows of the last match in great detail.
