Walks Through History: Liverpool

David Lewis

Walks Through History: Liverpool is a celebration of the beauty and poetry of the city, the unexpected streets and places encountered and the restless urban landscape. This book of Liverpool walks is a guidebook to the city’s odd corners and a practical handbook of urban exploration.

Nearly eight centuries of history have left their mark on Liverpool in street names and stories, from the breezy hill at Everton and the salty industry of the docks, to the grandeur of the city centre and the wide green spaces of Sefton Park. Exploring the city on foot shows us things invisible to the bus passenger hurrying to work; cast-iron street lamps on cobbled back streets, ornate fountains, quiet pubs, crumbling Gothic churches and mediaeval stonework.

In this book there are walks finding the hidden history and architecture of the city centre, family walks through Liverpool’s wealth of parks and gardens, and journeys through the older industrial city for the serious urban explorer. Detailed directions are given, along with bus and train routes to and from the walks, convenient stopping or resting places, and suggested diversions or alternatives.

The book is sure to appeal to locals and tourists alike.
