    Default Georgian Buildings

    Liverpool has more Goergian terraces, buildings and squares than Bath!

    I have been thinking about this statement the past few weeks and I can't see how!!

    I love Bath, after Liverpool it is my fave place. But I can't see how Lpool has more Georgian buildings....

    where are all the Georgian Buildings here? besides Rodney street.

    A lot are of course not in good condition but try looking at the Duke St, Slater St, Seel St, Bold St areas. Also look at the Abercromby area. The best surviving Georgian Town house is I believe on the corner of Trueman St and Dale St.

    It's mainly because of L8 that Liverpool is said to have "more Georgian buildings than Bath".
    Once you get to the other side of Catharine Street most of the so-called "Georgian" area was actually built when Victoria was Queen (and most of the other side [until you get into town] is 19th century).
    It would be more correct to call Liverpool's (L8) architecture "late Georgian style" rather than "Georgian".
    The comparison with Bath is not a good one, in my opinion, as Bath's Georgian is on average 100 years older than Liverpool, and built with the beautiful Bath stone, rather than Liverpool's plain brick.
