Lark Lane, Liverpool

Creative Tourist

A little way out of Liverpool City Centre, and a short and leafy walk from St Michael’s train station, is the low-key enclave of Lark Lane. Rather beautifully named, this long, straight street gives off a warm and proud sense of community: when we dropped into creative co-op and gift shop Arts Hub the man at the till cheerfully described the area as “our answer to Chorlton”.

With restaurants, antique and gift shops, a Polish salon and an impressive deli all huddled in together, it’s an area well worth exploring.
