North West’s Largest Independent Estate Agent

The city of Liverpool has a soul that is much larger than itself. For although it is small in size, it is filled with the most creative of people, businesses and energy that runs throughout the city, leaving no area untouched. There is, however, one area where this energy originates from…welcome to the Arts Quarter.

In this bustling area, you can find the trendiest of bars and restaurants housed in some of the most beautiful Georgian buildings, where the cobbled streets and lantern street lamps transport you to a distant time, perhaps when Liverpool was enjoying the full benefits of its booming international maritime trade.

This area is where you can find some of the city’s top higher-education institutions including LIPA, one of the top performing arts schools in the country that boasts Sir Paul McCartney as a Patron. It is also home to the Liverpool Philharmonic and the Everyman Theatre, where guests enjoy performances from both local, national and international artists. 

Five Quick Facts

1 This area is home to the city’s two cathedrals, The Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and The Metropolitan Cathedral, both standing almost opposite each other at both ends of Hope Street. The Anglican, as it locally known, is where you can find St. James’ Cemetery. This cemetery holds the remains of nearly 58,000 people including William Huskisson, the first fatal railway casualty.  2 Are you a fan of Peaky Blinders? The areas of Rodney Street, Upper Duke Street and Pilgrim Street were used for filming along with many other Liverpool locations. In fact, due to its Georgian architecture, Liverpool has been used as an imitation of locations such as London, New York and Chicago.   3 The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts was opened in 1996 and founded by Sir Paul McCartney and Mark Featherstone-Witty, founder of the Brit School in London. The university has been ranked No.1 in the United Kingdom for several of its degree courses.  4 Gambier Terrace, a row of Georgian Houses located opposite the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, was once the home of John Lennon, when he attended the Liverpool College of Art, which is now LIPA.  5 Rodney Street, which is considered to be the Harley Street of the North, is the birthplace of some of the country’s most notable names. The Beatles’ manager, Brian Epstein, was born at number 4 and William Ewart Gladstone, former Prime Minister of the UK was born at number 62. 

Places To Live

The variety of properties in the Arts Quarter is reflective of the mixture of people that reside within its quirky and alternative streets. The perfect place to live for those who enjoy visiting the theatre, enjoying after-work drinks and soaking up a very cultural atmosphere.

Rodney Street 
With Georgian townhouses that line the streets, Rodney Street was clearly once the playground for the successful and rich residents of Liverpool. Although most of these miniature mansions are now the home of professional businesses, there are some which have been converted into apartments and the odd place that is home to just one lucky resident. A very sought-after place to live.

Hope Street 
Although the Georgian townhouses may be a familiar sight in the Arts Quarter, there is just something about Hope Street that has a different feel. Perhaps it’s the mixture of cafes, restaurants and theatres that create this bohemian buzz, where, no matter what the weather is like, people want to sit outside and enjoy watching the tourists, students and odd street performer passing by. Most properties here are apartments, but you can find full townhouses on the adjoining Falkner Street.

St. Andrews Place Student Apartments 
Despite the fact that the area has many educational institutions, there are very few student accommodation places within this area. However, in recent years, St. Andrews Church has been converted into luxury student apartments. Although this involves having a garden that is also a graveyard, it is prime location for students in the city.
