    Welcome to Yo.

    There are some very good areas of Liverpool and some not so good, you probably already know that.
    I live in the Old Swan area and find it to be a good place, with shops of every sort, the M62 on the doorstep, buses to all directions.
    I'm probably biased, but I'd say Old Swan.

    Hi Rob,
    Welcome to the site, and Liverpool! I work in the Tuebrook area, and it's a pretty mixed residential area, with good local amenities,shops,sports facilities,and Newsham park.Transport is good, but I couldn't say much about schools,except to say there seems to be quite a variety! (It's also near to Old Swan!)

    Places on the Wirral are generally cheaper than over in Liverpool.

    I'd live in the South end of Liverpool but thats my preference. I find it easier to get to town from the South than the North and the roads are less congested from my end if you do drive or cycle to town(i cycle to town, drivings not worth it and i only live in Wavertree anyway). The roads are more straight too and less turns.

    I'd live in Formby which is just outside Liverpool or live in Crosby though down tae north.

    I like the Dee side of the Wirral and Port Sunlight and New Brighton but it's only good for a visit.

    I'd advise moving to the south end, there are plenty of family residents in the allerton area.

    Default South Liverpool

    I think Allerton Mossley Hill or Aigburth

    Many students seem to live in south Liverpool in the Wavertree and Mossley Hill areas. So assuming your daughter is going to live at home, this would mean she would have other students to mix with in the same area. Property in south Liverpool can be expensive though. The area does give fairly quick access to Deeside, probably about 45 mins on a good traffic free day. Petrol travelling costs will be fairly high of course plus tunnel costs if you chose to go that way rather than Runcorn Bridge.

    Smile Moving to liverpool

    Well,I seem to be struggling to find out anything about Tuebrook.We quite liked the house we viewed last week,and I'm sure its a fairly decent part of the city.We are originally from the inner city parts of Leicester so should quickly settle down into city life again.I'm not too worried about the journey to work,its a good excuse to get my bike out(Yamaha fzr1000 exup.)Any bikers out their?Any how,the final decision will be from my other half anyway,so providing she approves of the schools,Liverpools ahead of the Wirral.Thanks for all your help and any further information would be greatly appreciated.

    Check out L17, L18, L19

    They are asking 2007 prices, so reduce by 30% for a realistic price.

    My advice would be... stay out of Liverpool. Live on the outskirts it is often a nicer place to raise kids up in.
