This area of Liverpool gets its name from the craft of rope-making for sailing ships that dominated the it until the 19th century. Characterised by its long, straight streets running parallel to each other, and its historic warehouse buildings, the influence of the rope-making industry is apparent. It’s home to Europe’s oldest Chinatown and the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, alongside a lively bar and club scene.
The Baltic Triangle is a home for creatives. With a burgeoning start-up scene taking up the former industrial warehouses, alongside studios, cafes and the Constellations arts centre, there’s inspiration on every corner. Enjoy live music at Camp and Furnace, street food at the Baltic Market or simply explore the graffitied streets.
Albert Dock is now home to a thriving arts and music scene, cleverly integrates the old and new, by combining the dock’s iconic architecture with mordern restaurants, bars and shops. The history of the dock, designed by Jesse Hartley and opened in 1846, is immortalised in the area’s museums - don’t miss the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the Tate Liverpool.
