The Ropewalks area is located within Liverpool’s Riverside Ward to the South of the City Centre. It is the independent heart of Liverpool - right between the docks, LiverpoolOne, the Chinese Quarter and Cathedrals.
The land rises gently from the Liverpool One development at Hanover Street up towards Berry Street and Liverpool’s Chinatown along roads that have taken their form from the ‘roperies’ that were founded to service the shipping industry following the creation of the world’s rst commercial ‘Wet-Dock’, designed by Thomas Steers, on land reclaimed from the former Pool in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) ‘Ropewalks’ is synonymous with the Duke Street Conservation Area, Liverpool’s Georgian Merchant’s Quarter. Conservation area designation in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) has enabled Liverpool City Council to protect this area of the city that has its origins in the early 18th Century growth of Liverpool associated with Britain’s expansion as a colonial trading power and the early period of the industrial revolution.
By the mid nineteenth century the ‘Old Dock’ had been reclaimed and the focus of the city’s growth had moved elsewhere. As a result the townscape of Ropewalks is distinct from the shire counties and elds that preceded the construction of the ‘Old Dock’ and the Victorian development within Liverpool that post-date it. The area’s international importance has warranted inclusion in the UNESCO Liverpool – Maritime Mercantile City World Heritage Site (area 6 – “Lower Duke Street”).
Ropewalks today contains a mixture of late 18th and early 19th century merchants houses, counting houses and warehouses (early merchant’s dwellings often physically linked with their warehouses, reecting a dual residential and commercial function), along with later 19th century and early 20th century low-grade commercial and industrial adaptation and redevelopment. The area encompasses one of the City’s major retail streets in the form of Bold Street, is home to a number of businesses in the creative industries, has a ourishing nightlife and includes Liverpool’s vibrant Chinatown that developed in the area from the (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) s.
There are currently 102 individual listed buildings within Ropewalks. Over the last 15 years there have been new developments for mixed-use and apartment buildings; a multi-million pound lm and creative technology centre (FACT) and grant aided schemes to restore architectural features and bring historic oorspace back into use as shops, offices, hotel and living accommodation.
Much of the warehousing within Ropewalks has been brought back into use through the Lower Duke Street Townscape Heritage Initiative (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) and is now inhabited through mixed uses of apartments, offices and restaurants. The Liverpool: World Heritage Site THI (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) Present) is in the process of bringing back into use many of the buildings that are most ‘at risk’ within Ropewalks.
How to get around? Simple... Just walk! For Lime Street though, we'd suggest a taxi (Delta Taxis are a local firm you can choose). There are only few places, which you cannot comfortably reach by foot.
As part of the quoted price for your booking, we obviously provide freshly cleaned bedding and towels. We also put some milk in the fridge to get you going once checked in and can also provide electricity adapters for our guests from abroad. All included.
