The neighbourhood guide to Ropewalks
If you’re wondering where to start on a weekend trip to Liverpool, the Ropewalks neighbourhood is a good bet. Just a short mooch from Liverpool Central Station, it’s a bohemian, history-soaked, arty quarter of the city centre, packed with independent shops, bars, music venues and places to eat.
Its Victorian warehouses were once the centre of the port’s rope-making trade. Now they’re filled with cool coffee spots such as LEAF and art galleries like the Bluecoat. Bold Street is one of the liveliest parts: head here to explore vintage fashion shops, bookshops, and hip restaurants and bars.
