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 Deal in Liverpool and the construction of Liverpool Castle. In 1715 AD, the construction of the first commercial port was completed, and the maritime trade of the Atlantic Ocean expanded. It was located in Liverpool, the estuary of the River Mersey in England, so it grew rapidly. In the 19th century, the Albert Dock was opened, and Liverpool's port became more prosperous. At that time, 40% of the world's containers would dock here.

In 1940, the artillery of World War II relentlessly and violently attacked this beautiful city and pier, and many buildings in Liverpool were destroyed. Fortunately, after the war, Liverpool's economy recovered slowly; at this time, The Beatles was born! The whole city has a new look because of their music.

Liverpool witnessed the development history of world maritime trade in the 18th and 19th centuries, and the terminal was the main trading port of the British Empire at that time, with historical preservation significance. In 2004, Liverpool was certified as a marine commercial city and became a UNESCO. Selected as a World Heritage Site (UNESCO).

Europe's first Chinatown

In the 19th century, maritime trade was developed, and Chinese merchant ships were in close proximity to Liverpool ports, so the first Tang Dynasty community in Europe was established here. The magnificent arches you see now were built in 2000. In recent years, the descendants of many immigrants have turned to neighbouring cities of London or Manchester in search of new job opportunities, so the crowds here are quite different, but the significance is memorable.
