Great Reasons to Move to Liverpool

It’s unlikely that you haven’t heard of Liverpool. So, you’ve probably already got an idea about what to expect from this famous city in the North West of England. There’s that instantly recognisable accent, a world-renowned football club and, of course, some very well-known bands.


But while these are help make it famous, there are even better reasons why you should move to live in Liverpool.


A huge amount of heritage


There’s a lot to see and do in the city. If culture and heritage is your passion, you’ll find plenty of it. Liverpool was the European Capital of Culture in 2008 and is home to some famous landmarks that bring in tourists every year.


Fans of architecture will know of the Royal Liver Building, opened in 1911 and the first building to be made of reinforced concrete. Others will recognise it for the two famous Liver Birds, Bella and Bertie, which perch on the two clock towers. The Liver Bird has been the symbol of the city since 1229, and legend says that if these two birds fly away the city will fall.


A great choice of education with four universities


If you prefer your heritage a little less concrete, then how about musical pedigree. The Guinness World Records recognises Liverpool as the World Capital of Pop. The Beatles, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Elvis Costello, The Lightening Seeds, Atomic Kitten . . . with names like this, you can see why Liverpool is rightly proud of its claim to music fame.


So, it’s not surprising that music is a popular course at each of the four universities in the city. Study the world’s only MA on the Beatles at the University of Liverpool, explore Liverpool Hope University or Liverpool John Moores University  and try Edge Hill University, recently voted Modern University of the Year.


If you’re not quite ready for university, then there are still plenty of options, as you would expect in a city of this size. There is a huge choice of private and public schools, so you’ll easily find something for your children.


Places to go and things to do


Although it’s a big city, that doesn’t mean you can’t find a lovely green space to relax in. In fact, Liverpool has a lot of parks, including its largest, Sefton Park, with 235 acres of grass, boating lakes, playgrounds, cafes, waterfalls and a Fairy Glen. And of course you’re right by the sea, which gives you miles of coastline and beaches to explore, and the nearby Marine Lake at West Kirby for watersports.


With four universities and a bustling port, Liverpool also has a fantastic night life. Clubs, restaurants, cocktail bars and theatres are plentiful, and you’ll always find something to do for a romantic night out, a family evening of fun or as a group looking to party.


Affordable Living


Finally, a great reason for moving to Liverpool is the cost of living. With house prices across the UK increasing this year to £271,600, Liverpool remains a great choice for first time buyers and those on the ladder. The average house price in Liverpool in April 2022 was £174,890, with terraced properties fetching about £152,000 and detached homes around £352,300.


All of which makes Liverpool not just a great city to live in, but an affordable one too. And, as we know that moving home is an expensive and stressful thing to do, saving on costs where you can is always appreciated. That’s why self-storage can be a great way to make your move easier, by giving you a low-cost place to keep your household furniture and items while you complete on your new home and settle in at your own pace, without the stress.
