The Georgian Quarter Liverpool History

In 1800, Liverpool surveyor John Foster Snr laid out plans for a new area of housing east of Rodney Street. Over the next 100 years, elegant rows of houses were built, mainly in the Georgian style and the area became populated by Liverpool’s wealthy elite. The streets were laid out in a distinctive grid structure and offer one of the finest examples of Georgian urban design anywhere in the UK. Named the Liverpool Georgian Quarter, it’s now the home of one of the most distinctive Liverpool streets, Hope Street.

The Liverpool Georgian Quarter has endured many of the city’s periods of transition; the rise and fall of industrialism, two World Wars, and the phenomena of The Beatles. Today, the Georgian Quarter in Liverpool is home to one of the UK’s largest selections of terraced Georgian town-houses outside of London. A historic atmosphere runs through every row and the period architecture and cobbled streets have led many films and TV shows, such as BBC’s Peaky Blinders, to be filmed in the district.

Georgian Quarter Liverpool Redevelopment

At the heart of the Georgian Quarter Liverpool postcode and nestled between the Anglican Cathedral and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral lies Hope Street. Hope Street is a big part of both the Georgian Quarter and Liverpool as a whole, viewed as one of the city’s top visitor destinations. Following £2.9 million worth of investment in 2006, Hope Street was the proud winner of the Academy of Urbanism ‘Great Street Award’. Then, in 2014, the street was also awarded the Stirling Architectural Prize for the renovation of Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre, shining both the city and the street in a highly positive light. Before Hope Street’s regeneration, the area was one of the city’s most high-end residential neighbourhoods. Today, while the street is still very much a residential area, it’s now filled with a whole host of top restaurants, bars, hotels and luxury apartments.

Some stand out names include fine dining restaurants 60 Hope Street, the London Carriage Works and the Liverpool Art School. Whereas, those looking for a more laid-back bite to eat can enjoy venues like Death Row Diner, a fast-food restaurant, and Fredericks, a chic bar serving up tasty Sunday roasts and top cocktails. Due to the presence of theatres like the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse, a lot of restaurants in the Georgian Quarter brand themselves as pre-theatre spots, offering set menus to enjoy before seeing a show.

Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter

Within the Georgian Quarter area lies the Liverpool Knowledge Quarter. The Knowledge Quarter is one of Liverpool’s biggest and most expansive regeneration schemes of recent years, having seen a whopping £1 billion worth of investment with plans for even further expansion in the coming years. Popular with graduates, students, and young professionals, the Liverpool Knowledge Quarter is based in proximity to the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University campuses.

As the name suggests, the area is a prime spot for learning and innovation, home to developments like Liverpool Bio-Innovation Hub, Liverpool Science Park, and the upcoming new Royal College of Physicians. Amongst the educational facilities in the area, the Knowledge Quarter and Georgian Quarter have also become fashionable social hang-outs thanks to independent bars and restaurants that provide relaxing dining and drinking experiences.

The Liverpool Georgian Quarter has endured many of the city's periods of transition; the rise and fall of industrialism, two world wars, and the phenomena of The Beatles.
