Liverpool is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, sitting alongside global landmarks including the Great Wall of China and the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
The city won the status in 2004 because of its impressive waterfront which, according to UNESCO, represents a ‘supreme example of a commercial port at the time of Britain’s greatest global significance’.
Liverpool's World Heritage Site consists of six distinctive historic areas, which reflect its functional and visual variety. It 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 historic cultural quarter around William Brown Street.
