For those who want the convenience of city living but with greenery galore, the Sefton Park area is an ideal choice. Musical and cultural events abound all year round throughout the park itself, also making this a popular choice with students of the arts.
The wonderfully quirky Lark Lane area is home to a bustling and sociable community scene, including cafes, restaurants, bakeries and bars. You can take care of all manner of practicalities such as healthcare and food shopping on nearby Smithdown Road.
There’s no shortage of beautiful places to visit to study in style or when parents come to visit. You can head to Sefton Park itself and one of its cafes, or make a beeline straight for its famous Victorian Palm House. Musical and sporting events are also often held in the park.
When you need a change of pace, the city centre is a short bus ride away for the cinema or some high street shopping.
