    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!!

    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.
