Discover the buildings and spaces that tell the story of Liverpool on the Gateway to the World tour. RIBA guides lead a walking tour that puts the spotlight on key buildings and spaces that form part of the contemporary city landscape, its characters, its commerce and its culture. Meeting Point: Outside the Open Eye Gallery, Mann Island L3 1BP. Liverpool established its international reputation as the pre-eminent gateway for shipping, trade and the movement of people leaving one continent to find new lives in another. The city that was created to service this exchange is rich in its buildings, streets and public spaces. Many of these have changed use since they were originally built, helping to create the vibrant modern Liverpool that exists today.

The Ropewalks: Growth, Decline & Regeneration 1715-2015...

  • 15 May 2015 5:30-7:30pm

The district now known as the Ropewalks was until recently derelict and run-down
however, the area once played a crucial role in the commerce and growth of the city as a world class seaport. Evidence of this can be seen in its large collection of warehouses, small factories, merchants’ houses and terraces. The earliest of these buildings date from the first half of the eighteenth century and the opening of the nearby Old Dock to which the district was closely connected. In the late 1990s the city council decided to initiate the re-development of the area by encouraging investment. The aim was to bring derelict premises back to life, introduce some new buildings and open spaces and so encourage greater use of the area for creative industries and for leisure activities – in short to make the district the lively, busy place it had once been but now safer, welcoming and more attractive to the public. This popular district received its new name in the 1990s, a name rooted in its past - The Ropewalks. This tour tells the tale of a changing area through its many buildings and squares.
