The concentration of historic buildings is so high that Liverpool gained acceptance as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. However, significant investment has allowed for the development of a thriving social hub in recent times. A variety of contemporary cafés, shopping centres and evening entertainment venues have been built in place of the unsightly industrial buildings. Now you have the opportunity to book accommodation at many of the city's serviced apartments and experience the modern luxuries of Liverpool.
