Starting at the Athenæum Club premises just metres from the main shopping areas of both Church Street and the new Liverpool One development, we wander away from the throngs, uphill towards the University area, populated with quirky restaurants, one-off shops and art venues, all set in beautiful Georgian buildings and formal terraces of town houses. With the height come sudden vistas over the city, across the River Mersey and out towards the Welsh hills. This is not intended as a walk for exercise, rather this is to point out some of the outstanding architecture in the city of Liverpool. There are walks nearby that will fill your lungs with fresh air, notably along the banks of the River Mersey; Liverpool has changed - and for the better!

Pretty good walk. Very easy. If you add in both of the Liverpool cathedrals - you can't miss them - and pop into a few of the pubs on route, this walk can take some hours. There are some great beers in the Philharmonic Hotel, and it is very ornate. A tip - there are quite a few shops to go past. Make sure you buy at the finish, not the start. All in all, a pleasant walk without a footpath in sight.
