The Heart of the Northern Powerhouse

Liverpool is undergoing a rapid transformation. The creation of multi-billion investments and the government’s Northern Powerhouse initiative have helped to secure the city’s future economic growth, that will ultimately boost demand for housing in the city.

Liverpool prides itself as being an innovative and exciting place for investment and business. It is a city with substantial economic assets and opportunities; a knowledge hub with unique learning centres; a destination city with impressive culture and a city with important sea and air connections to international markets

Home to over 250,000 business & 70,000 students from all over the world

It’s estimated that in the ten-year period running up to 2023 the number of people visiting, living and working in Liverpool’s city centre will have grown 25%.

With this in mind, Liverpool City Council have introduced a scheme to focus on making walking and cycling the first choice for short journeys in the city centre. The work will also reduce car and bus traffic and make it easier and more enjoyable to get about.


Liverpool city centre has two train stations: Liverpool Central and Liverpool Lime Street. Liverpool Central connects Liverpool to the rest of Merseyside. Liverpool Lime Street station connects Liverpool with the rest of the UK and boasts a fast line connection with London Euston where the journey time is just a little over two hours. Regular services to Manchester are also in operation.

Merseyrail trains run frequently throughout the day across 66 stations in and around the Liverpool area. With 4 city centre underground stations – Lime Street lower level, Liverpool Central, Moorfields and James Street – you can easily get around the city, giving you more time to see everything Liverpool has to offer.



The variety of transport links to and from Liverpool John Lennon Airport makes getting to and from the airport extremely easy. Regular bus services operate from the airport, as well as the options of travelling by train, taxi or car, both into the city centre or elsewhere in the North West.

The airport offers a huge range of destinations – many just a couple of hours away – and there’s something for everyone, from beach lovers to some of the best cities in the world for soaking in culture and finding inspiration.
