Liverpool World Heritage Site

Home > Attractions > Liverpool World Heritage Site

In 2004, Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The World Heritage Site stretches along the waterfront from Albert Dock, through The Pier Head and up to Stanley Dock, and up through the historic commercial districts and the RopeWalks area to the cultural quarter which is dominated by the magnificent St George's Hall.

The award was made on the basis that the Site is 'the supreme example of a commercial port at a time of Britain's greatest global influence'.

The area's historic significance centres on its involvement in the growth of world trade, mercantile culture, the trans-atlantic slave trade and mass European emigration.
