World Heritage Site

About

Liverpool's waterfront is a designated World Heritage Site, putting it on a par with the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China.

The accolade was granted by UNESCO in July 2004. The city's bid was centred on Liverpool as a Maritime Mercantile city and reflected the city's significance as a commercial port at the time of Britain's greatest global influence.

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 St George's Quarter which is dominated by the magnificent St George's Hall.
