Where to live in Liverpool

Property prices in Liverpool have increased recently but remain below the regional and national averages . Houses here are more affordable than in Warrington and Preston, whether you’ve set your eyes on a new build or a fixer-upper.

Find five of the best areas to live in Liverpool below, including their amenities and average house prices.

1. Georgian Quarter

Best for: Proximity to city centre

Looking to live next door to the heart of the action? The Georgian Quarter is hard to beat. Known for its beautiful Georgian townhouses and terraces, this area strikes the perfect balance between central and residential living. It boasts a slower pace of life than the city centre while sitting next door to cultural attractions like the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and the Everyman Theatre.

Home to excellent eateries and quirky boutiques, this neighbourhood brims with short and long-term investment potential.

2. Allerton

Best for: Proximity to nature

On Liverpool’s southeastern outskirts, Allerton is among the city’s most sought-after areas. Despite property prices being higher than in other parts, there are many investment opportunities in period homes and modern apartments.

If you’d like to live near nature, Allerton is your best pick. It lies a stone’s throw from Sefton Park, Greenbank and Calderstones Park while within walking distance of the Otterspool Promenade. Popular among families, it enjoys diverse eateries, quirky vintage shops and some of Ofsted's best-rated schools.

3. Woolton

Best for: Peaceful suburban living

Quiet and safe, Woolton is among Liverpool’s most desirable areas. Famous for being John Lennon’s childhood home, it has independent shops, fine-dining restaurants and historic landmarks. The vast green spaces, like Calderstones Park, cosy cafés and welcoming atmosphere create a strong community spirit. The area also benefits from some of Liverpool’s best schools and nurseries, making it ideal for families.

Woolton has some of the city’s highest property prices, boasting fantastic investment potential.

4. West Derby

Best for: Families

West Derby enjoys excellent schools and early childcare centres, perfect for families. This area on Liverpool’s northeastern outskirts boasts large homes at affordable prices, making it a popular hotspot among homebuyers. Its convenient location is another selling point, next door to the heart of the city while close to Croxteth Hall and the M57 motorway.

5. Crosby

Best for: Coastline walks

Crosby is a seaside suburb on Liverpool’s northern outskirts, a 20-minute drive from the city centre. Known for its long, sandy beaches and academic excellence, it’s perfect for all homebuyers. It benefits from sports facilities, theatres, green spaces and independent eateries, meaning you’ll be spoilt for choice. The monthly Saturday farmers’ market is one of Liverpool’s most popular events, which introduces locals and visitors to Crosby’s fast-paced growth.
