"Best street in the UK"
The Academy of Urbanism, 2013

How do you become the best street in Britain?

By having two unique and fabulously different Cathedrals? Or the best new building of 2014? - The Stirling Prize winning Everyman Theatre?

By having one of the finest Georgian streetscapes in the UK? Or by being the home of Britain’s oldest professional Symphony Orchestra – The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic?

By being a world famous centre of learning and education, with our two Universities and Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts? Or by being a centre of theatre that has produced some of the most famous actors, writers and directors of our day?

Or even by being Liverpool’s centre for independent restaurants & dining?
