A place famous for hosting programmes of visual art, literature, music and dance throughout the year, Bluecoat Chambers is also known for being the oldest building in Liverpool. Located at College Ln, this building has been standing tall since the early 1700s. This Georgian architecture was originally intended to be a charity school, and is now an arts and culture hub.

2. Albert Dock

A visit to Liverpool is incomplete without visiting Albert Dock. Situated on the city’s waterfront, the Victorian Albert Dock boasts the largest selection of Grade I listed buildings in the UK. What was once primarily a warehouse and docking system is now the most popular area for a wide gamut of activities. Interestingly, this structure built in 1846 was the first one in Britain to be built without wood.

If you’re up for it, a 15 minute walk from FM Living can get you there.



3. The Three Graces

If you find yourself at Albert Dock, make it a point to look for ‘The Three Graces’ buildings. The most popular among these is the Grade I listed Royal Liver Building. Opened in 1911 as the home of the Royal Liver Assurance, this imposing structure dominates Liverpool’s waterfront skyline. It was also one of the first buildings in the world to be built using reinforced concrete.

Nearby stands the Port of Liverpool Building. This Edwardian Baroque-style structure built in 1907 is Grade II listed and is a part of Liverpool’s UNESCO-designated World Heritage Maritime Mercantile City.

The Cunard Building completes the Three Graces. It was completed around 1917 and was the headquarters of a popular Anglo-American cruise line – The Cunard Line until the 1960s.

For nearly a century, these buildings have defined Liverpool’s skylines along the Mersey River. Make sure you enjoy their view from aboard the Mersey Ferry.
