As in every city you can find some parts better than the others. Sefton Park/L17 (a secially Lark Lane) area is nice, the L18/ Calderstones/ Allerton/ Mossley Hill, Toxteth (Georgian Quarter) areas are lovely.
City Centre - whole L1 and L2, L3 (partly) more or less everything is in walking distance. Might be slightly overpriced when you want to rent furnished apartment and you may struggle with parking place for your car.
As for those wishing to live outside the City, it tends to be predominantly red brick housing within the respective towns and villages. These are often popular with families due to the property sizes, good schooling and outdoor activities available. In terms of popular areas Aigburth, Woolton and Crosby are all popular for those living or relocating to the Merseyside area.
For those who are moving from abroad what you need to watch out for is COUNCIL TAX. It is a local taxation system used in England, Scotland and Wales. Each property is assigned one of eight bands (A to H) based on property value, and the tax is set as a fixed amount for each band.
Therefore on top of your monthly rent and bills you need to ad your council tax too. That’s one of the taxes that need to be paid otherwise you may end up in a jail.
