Renting Luxury Serviced Apartments In Liverpool’s Heritage Area
Liverpool’s heritage has not always been worthy of praise. The city was once the centre of Britain’s slave trade, and what is now the fashionable Rope Walks area can be viewed with modern eyes through heritage walks, reflecting solemnly on the city’s past.
The area became synonymous with inner city decay. However, in the 1990s an ambitious regeneration project took place. Today, there are almost 100 listed buildings, among them Georgian town houses and old warehouses renovated into luxury serviced apartments in Liverpool. In Liverpool, heritage has been embraced rather than destroyed, and renting serviced apartments in Liverpool by the city centre places you right at the heart of it.
History students and culture vultures alike rent serviced apartments in Liverpool by the Ropes Walk quarter (named after the ropes that were once woven here, rather than the slaves being ferried off the ships) and “walk the walk” of British slaving history.
The walk starts at Pier Head, which was originally the site of the 18th Century George’s Dock. Here, great sailing ships would have berthed three deep before setting off for Africa, America and the West Indies. It continues past St Nicholas church – where slave manacles were once auctioned – to the Exchange Flags piazza, which is bordered by Grade II listed buildings on one side, and Liverpool’s historic Town Hall on the other.
The walk takes you past numerous smart Georgian homes, many now serving as luxury serviced apartments in Liverpool.
