Named one of The Sunday Times top 10 best places to live in the North West, Aigburth is in south Liverpool, an area of the city 20 minutes away from the centre and renowned for its greenery.
Key leisure attractions include the sprawling Sefton Park and quirky Lark Lane, a vibrant street famed for its selection of bars, cafés and restaurants. Aigburth is a particularly good location for those whose studies are based out of LJMU’s IM Marsh campus.
A short bus ride will take you to the New Mersey Retail Park where you’ll find a selection of high street shops, a cinema complex and dining options such as your favourite nationwide Portuguese chicken restaurant.
A little closer to home, Otterspool Promenade offers beautiful views over the Mersey, plus a skate park and adventure centre with a café and an ice cream parlour, perfect for when family come to visit.
