Baltic Triangle, Liverpool

Creative Tourist

The Baltic Triangle is a curious part of Liverpool. Out on a limb and bordered by dual carriageways, this historic area has become a rapidly-evolving hub for creative enterprises. Only a ten-minute walk from the city centre, it’s home to arguably Liverpool’s finest bar and event space, former warehouse Camp and Furnace. It occupies the now defunct A Foundation, a radical contemporary art space set up by James Moores, also responsible for establishing the Liverpool Biennial – the UK’s largest international contemporary arts festival, which still has its base in the Baltic Triangle.

The main draws here remain eating, drinking and gawping, however. For the former, head for the exceptional Baltic Bakehouse, where you can treat yourself to a ’99 doughnut, or a grilled cheese sandwich declared by Buzzfeed to be one of the ‘17 best sandwiches in the UK.’ For the latter, keep an eye out for the Grade II listed Gustaf Adolfs Kyrka, closer to the city centre. Rising up in crazy layers, this church was built for the Scandinavian sailors who once passed through the port.
