    I love all the Georgian Streets around the Cathedral but William Brown Street is amazing.

    Apart from William Brown Street, I'd say Castle Street is my favourite.

    There are too many to pick a favourite.

    Like everyone has said - the Georgian streets are lovely, and so is Castle st, etc. William Brown street is unbeatable.

    I like the tree lined avenues of leafy suburbia too ... and what about the many quaint little streets that have survived around the city.

    Mason Street, Edge Hill. Very little to see now but I've got many many old pictures and drawings from the 1800's of when it was a grand area!!

    Hope Street, with the cathedrals situated at each end and the Philharmonic pub.

    I love Hope st and Hope Place.
    I like the atmosphere of it. Those big houses look great, especially lit up at night.
    Hope place has a cosy feel to it.

    Princes Road/Avenue is my favourite. In the spring it reminds me of that same season in Paris, in the summer it has a look and feel of New Orleans and in the winter, especially under a blanket of snow, it reminds me of Moscow.

    As for William Brown Street; Can anyone point to a finer rise anywhere else in the world? I know there are places with streets every bit as impresive as William Brown Street but, I would argue that there is none more so.

    It's hard to choose but to be honest, it has to be Scottie Road/County Road in Kirkdale/Walton. It's the part of Liverpool that I feel I know more seeing as I have been up and down it so often! The buildings along there are just brilliant, especially St Mary's of Walton on the Hill which is where my Great Grandma and Great Grandad got married (They lived in Tuebrook). That's probably one reason why I like it so much.

    If not that, then it has to be St Domingo Road/Heyworth Street in Everton and thats purely because of the view you get! It's unrivelled!

    S'pose for me it has to be Tuebrook,(right name I s'pose is West Derby Rd.) So many 'firsts' happened for me there. Most of my M8's were from there, and times in Newsham park, were just fab.

    I went to Heyworth Street school (demolished to make way for Everton Park) and you could even see it from the ferry going to New Brighton.
    Got to admit the views are terrific from Heyworth St.

    Hard but love
    Hope Place - nice intact late georgian/early victorian street ( the unity actually adds to the street I think)
    Water street - Like something from New York - love the scale and the views down to the river, also includes Martins bank, India building, Orial chambers. Great street.
    Percy street - Stone house unique in liverpool, more like edinburgh, St Bride's church at one end - love it
    Miurhead Ave - The top end with the flats on. Well designed, well proportioned buildings, lovely mature trees If it was in London the prices of the flats would be stupid

    Good choice Christy. Percy st is unique in L'pool as you say.
    Hope place is lovely and has a certain charm that never changes.

    It's funny, but hardly anyone (from around here anyway) call it West derby rd - we automatically say Tuebrook for the main road.

    I have added Elm Vale to my list, it runs upto Newsham Park from Prescot Road and it is just fab. The top end is better mind...


    Isn't that nice? Btw, I haven't bought that house although i would have liked to!


    This is the road which Elm Vale finishes on and overloosk Newsham Park, this also looks like an attractive place to be!

    I've always liked Elm Vale. It's always had it's own unique character.

    My best streets must be the ones I was brought up in :=
    The Three Rock Streets off West Derby Road, (White, Red, Grey), Norwood Grove and Lombard Street just after the war.

    Funny how no one has mentioned 'Every Street'. Has always been a joke in our family.

    "Every street!" in Liverpool, that was an old joke of my Uncle Jim, smashin,

    Years ago my favourite street was Rodney Street, but now it would have to be the busy Queen Square where all human life goes past. I stand on the balcony while waiting for relatives and take in all that pass, it,s envigorating

    I am looking for old pics of Norwood Grove L6 about 1950's.
    I remember all the houses were rather large and out of place with other houses in that area.
    Norwood Grove was between White Rock St and Saxon St and ran from West Derby Rd to Whitefield Rd.
    There was Church (my local family Church) on the West Derby Road corner.
    Any pics would be more than welcome.
