Chinese Arch

About

Liverpool is home to the oldest Chinese community in Europe. It's also home to the largest Chinese Arch outside of China.

The Imperial Arch stands at 13.5 metres and 44 feet tall! It spans Nelson Street and is one of Liverpool's most spectacular sites. Detailed on the arch are 200 dragons and five roofs.

The arch was a gift from Shanghai, a city twinned with Liverpool and was shipped over, piece by piece. It was assembled in 2000, erected in time for the annual Chinese New Year celebrations held in Liverpool's Chinatown every year.

Protected by two bronze lions, and placed correctly with the principles of Feng Shui. The archway in all its glory simply states one thing, Zhong Guo Cheng or simply translated "Chinatown."

The archway was a direct outcome of years of co-operation and co-ordination between the Liverpool Chinatown Business Association, Liverpool City Council, Liverpool Rope Walks and Liverpool Chamber of Commerce.
