Background

Liverpool in the 11th century is called Liuerpul, which means a pool or creek with muddy water. After a few centuries, it gradually became the current name Liverpool.

In 1207, the then King John announced the establishment of a new new political district in Liverpool and the construction of Liverpool Castle. Before the 18th century, Liverpool was still a fairly simple town. It was not until 1715, when the construction of the first commercial port was completed, and the maritime trade expansion of the Atlantic Ocean, Liverpool at the mouth of the River Mersey in England, grew rapidly. In the 19th century, the Albert Dock was opened and the Port of Liverpool became more prosperous. At that time, 40% of the world's containers were docked here.

In 1940, the art of the Second World War ruthlessly and violently attacked this beautiful city and pier, and many buildings in Liverpool were destroyed. Fortunately, after the war, Liverpool's economy slowly recovered; at this time, The Beatles was born! The whole city is renewed and energetic because of their music!

Liverpool witnessed the development history of world maritime trade in the 18th and 19th centuries, and its dock was also the main trading port of the British Empire at that time. It has historical significance. In 2004, Liverpool Maritime Mall was certified and became the UN World Cultural Heritage (UNESCO). ).
