Walk this way ......... to experience Liverpool's Main Cultural buildings.

               

This walk takes you through Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage Site which holds one of the finest collections of Victorian Architecture in the UK – from St Georges Hall & the World Museum Liverpool to Central Library & the Walker Art Gallery on to the County Sessions House, once the local courthouse.

 

Known in the 16th Century as the Great Heath this area, complete with windmills and uncultivated land outside the limit of the  town later became known as Shaw’s Brow. It began to be built on in the early C18th thereby extending the town beyond the tidal creek known as the Pool. Over time the city gradually built the wealth of classical buildings to be discovered all positioned around the Grade 1 listed neo-classical St Georges Hall with its criminal courts and concert hall.
