No shopping trip in Liverpool is complete without visiting RopeWalks and its famous Bold Street.  RopeWalks is a treasure trove of niche independent stores mixed in with a cool and eclectic hub of coffee shops and creative small companies that mirrors the urban, trendy, bohemian vibe that makes the area tick and visitors come back time and time again for their fix of real Liverpool. 

Bold Street possesses everything from quirky boutiques, flagship stores and even a 1950’s inspired diner. As one of its longest standing store owners put, “if you can’t find it on Bold Street, you probably don’t need it!”  Sited between Liverpool Central Station and St Lukes Church, it really is “the Bond Street of the North” and if you want that bespoke dress, quirky painting, unique tattoo, or simply somewhere to catch up with friends, this is the place for you!  Visit the Bold Street website directly by clicking below.

The historic cobbled streets of RopeWalks are home to an awe inspiring number of sole traders that showcase the best of Liverpool and the City’s entrepreneurial talent.   RopeWalks truly is the Independent Quarter and has the vibrant atmosphere to match.

Shopping in the shadows of iconic buildings such as Radiant House, The Lyceum and the site of the first Beatles gig, amongst many other architectural gems, is an exceptional experience that you definitely wont forgot in a hurry. Some must visits include:
