History of Liverpool

Liverpool is a Maritime city in the North-West of England, where the River Mersey runs through and meets the Irish Sea. The Rich history of Liverpool means there are many architectural historic landmarks with most of the buildings dating back to the 18th century. 

At the start Liverpool comprised just seven streets, which all still exist today. It remained a relatively small city until its rise to prominence due to its boom in trade in the 18th Century. 

Liverpool is well known for its docklands, the Royal Albert Dock which was built between 1841-1847. It became a popular store for valuable cargoes such as brandy, tea, cotton, silk, tobacco, sugar and ivory.  Due to the popularity of the trade and the importance of its docks, Liverpool increased in population over the years. 

In 1826-1829 the Wapping Tunnel was constructed, the first ever railway tunnel to be built in the world and is 2,030 meters long. It was to enable goods services to operate between Liverpool docks and around all locations leading to Manchester. The Tunnel had closed by 1972, and there are remains of evidence of the tunnel existing in the form of three red brick ventilation towers but are not accessible to the public. 

By the beginning of the 19th century, with the large volume of trade passing through Liverpool and the construction of important buildings it clearly reflected its wealth. 

During the WWII in 1940, Liverpool suffered dramatically with air raids which devastated homes and buildings, and by the end of the German Bombings there was over 2,700 Liverpudlians that were killed. One of the most symbolic buildings that’s left from the Liverpool Bombings is the Shell of St Luke’s Church, also known as ‘The bombed-out church’ as it was gutted but remained still standing strong.

Liverpool struggled after the War with a decline in manufacturing at the docks, and music became an escape from it all for the people of Liverpool. In 1960 one of the City’s most famous music bands formed– The Beatles. 

Liverpool is well known for being the hometown of The Beatles, and the Cavern Club where they made their debut in 1961.
