The Baltic Triangle is a creative community and development area occupying a central location in Liverpool.

Just a short walk away from the Baltic Triangle you’ll find attractions like Liverpool’s China Town and Liverpool One Shopping Centre – one of the city’s biggest regeneration schemes. The Baltic Triangle also sits next to the RopeWalks district; an area that has received £250 million worth of regeneration.

A short distance from the Baltic Triangle also lies the developments of the Liverpool Arena and Convention Centre, the Exhibition Centre and three hotels constructed since Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture year of 2008. The Liverpool Albert Dock is also around a twenty-minute walk away or less, where you can explore the city of Liverpool’s attractions like the Museum of Liverpool and the Tate gallery.

What is the History of the Baltic Triangle?

There’s often speculation over the history behind the Baltic Triangle’s past, and the origins of the areas name. The Baltic Triangle’s name is thought to derive from Liverpool’s trading history, when traders from Sweden, Norway and other Baltic areas would pass through Liverpool each year. The area is the historical heart of Liverpool’s former warehouse and dock trade that once made the city the most crucial link in the worldwide economic chain through the 18th and 19th centuries.

Along with the name, the Baltic Triangle saw Scandinavian influence in more ways than one. The area also houses a Scandinavian Church on Park Lane, which was built in the 1860s. The Grade II listed Gustav Adolf Church (or the Scandinavian Seaman’s Church), is one of the most arresting buildings not only in the Baltic Triangle but the whole of Liverpool. The church served the spiritual needs of the large numbers of Scandinavian emigrants in the city, mostly sailors who arrived through Liverpool’s dockyards/
