    Overview

    Liverpool is located in England where both of River Mersey and Irish Sea meet together. So Liverpool is a maritime city. Liverpool is known for being the hometown of The Beatles, the rock group.

    On the other hand, the city has lots of attractions such as waterfront with ferry trips, the Liverpool Cathedral – its iconic architecture – the city’s museum, and the famous Royal Albert Dock.

    The city stretches on an estimated area of 111.8 km2 with a population enumerated to have been 496,784 in 2019. The majority of people residing in Liverpool are of three nationalities: Australian, English and Italian.

    The word “Liverpool” comes from the Old English “lifer” from the word “liuerpul” recorded in 1190 which means (water having much mud) and “pol” means a pool or creek. The building of Liverpool Castle was finished in 1235 soon after.

    By a royal decree, the early precinct of Liverpool was established in 1207 by King John: In the shape of the letter “H” the seven streets were made to constitute Liverpool, which had been a small settlement until the trade of the city began to flourish with Ireland and England’s coastal regions.

    The disreputable triangular trade of tobacco, slaves and sugar resulted in enormous increase and flourishment between America, the West Indies and Africa. Then Liverpool soon changed to occupy its status as the fastest growing city around the world when it was, strategically, set to make use of such transatlantic trade.
