About the city of Liverpool, England

Liverpool lies on the north-west coast of England, east of the Mersey Estuary.

History and Tourism

Liverpool was granted a royal charter by King John in 1207 and received city status in 1880. It was part of the large north-west county of Lancashire until the formation of the county of Merseyside in 1974.

The Port of Liverpool developed from the 1700s when the nearby River Dee increasingly silted, resulting in the River Mersey becoming more suitable for maritime trade with the north west of England. The C19th was a time of great expansion and increasing wealth for many.

During the C20th there were many and various challenges and changes, the most dramatic of which occurred during WW2 when Liverpool was heavily bombed. Of the historic architecture that survived WW2 much was destroyed by the extensive demolishing and building works that followed. On a more positive note, much entertainmenent and musical talent emerged from Liverpool during the 1960s. The industrial decline of the 1970-80s affected Liverpool as well as many other urban areas in the north of England. Regeneration followed, an early project being the redevelopment of the Albert Dock (above) during 1981-4.

Other areas that have also benefited from redevelopment include the former King's Dock which is now the location of the Echo Arena, Prince's Dock which is now home to a modern 22-storey residential complex and the Keel Wharf waterfront where the Liverpool Wheel opened in 2010.

Sports

Comment about Liverpool would be incomplete without mention of the city's football clubs, Liverpool F.C. ('the Reds') and their neighbours who play in blue, Everton F.C.. The third professional Merseyside football club is Tranmere Rovers F.C..

Other sporting activities are also pursued but most locals would probably agree that on Merseyside football is the most popular sport.
