Welcome to LJMU WELCOME TO LIVERPOOL Why is it that so many students who graduate in Liverpool choose to stay in the city and make it their home? As you will see below, it’s hard to settle on one reason in particular but, as those of you who live here will already know, Liverpool rocks! Affordable Liverpool’s 50,000 students are all keen to make the most of the city’s fabulous attractions and, as one of the region’s most affordable cities, Liverpool welcomes them to do just that. Culture Where to start? Free museums including The World Museum and the Merseyside Maritime Museum, free galleries such as The Tate and the Walker Art Gallery, first class theatre at the RIBA award winning Everyman, the Playhouse, the Empire and the Royal Court as well as classical music at The Philharmonic. You want culture? You’ve got it!

Eating Something of a foodie? You’re sure to fall in love with Liverpool’s extensive range of international restaurants. And if you’re into café culture, you’ll genuinely be spoilt for choice. Architecture Liverpool has been described by English Heritage as England’s finest Victorian city. We’re talking over 2,500 listed buildings – 27 Grade I and 85 Grade II listed. And if that isn’t impressive enough, Liverpool’s waterfront is a designated World Heritage Site. Green spaces Sefton Park with its historic Palm House, Calderstones Park with its 1,000 year old oak tree and Stanley Park with its Grade II listed Isla Gladstone Conservatory. Come summer, it’s revision and lunch al fresco.

Sport Football you say? You’ve come to the right place! Visits to Anfield and Goodison are an absolute must during your time at LJMU no matter whether you are a ‘red’, a ‘blue’ or somewhere in between.

Nightlife Legendary! With the highlights divided between the city centre, Lark Lane and the Baltic Triangle, there’s something here to suit all tastes. We’d go as far as to say if you’ve never had a night out in Liverpool, you’ve never lived!

Shopping With independent retailers aplenty and every big name you could ask for, Liverpool’s got it covered when it comes to that all important retail therapy.
