Top 5 ‘where to live’ in Liverpool guides
As the year draws to a close, look back on the most popular features published on ymliverpool.com in 2018.
#1 – Prescot
If the New York Times is to be believed, a stroll through Prescot is akin to a tour of the “casualties of Britain’s age of austerity”.
Here in the Liverpool City Region though, we can see it’s a place on the up, kick-started in part by ambitious plans for a world-class tourist attraction.
Here’s why now is the time to move to Prescot.
#2 – New Brighton
Sun, sea, ice cream and fish ‘n’ chips. New Brighton has been one of the Liverpool City Region’s best-loved seaside resorts for over 150 years. Recent decades haven’t been particularly kind to this little corner of Wirral, but a redeveloped waterfront has sparked a palpable sense of excitement once again.
We think it’s the perfect time to grab your bucket and spade and set up home in New Brighton.
#3 – Locations 15 minutes from the city centre
With renowned cultural attractions, a mouth-watering mix of restaurants and bars and a vibrant range of shops, it’s all going on in Liverpool city centre. For many though, enjoying the hustle and bustle doesn’t necessarily mean wanting to live right amongst it.
Whether the car, rail, cycling or walking is your chosen mode of transport, we’ve rounded up a diverse mix of top destinations to live in the Liverpool City Region.
#4 – Woolton
Living in a city doesn’t have to be all bright lights and hustle and bustle. Venture out of Liverpool’s lively centre and you could set up home in a quaint village setting just a stone’s throw from the action.
If a hub of independent shops and eateries, sites steeped in history and a rallying community tick all of your boxes, here’s why you should head to Woolton.
#5 – Broadgreen
Best known for its sprawling hospital site, Broadgreen has seen recent prominent residential developments trigger something of a renaissance in the area.
Coupled with enviable connectivity and tempting property prices, this suburb east of Liverpool city centre has become a location that’s worth serious consideration by househunters.
