Event Venues in Liverpool
Liverpool is often thought of as the far north-west of England’s most inhabited areas, with both Manchester and Sheffield lying almost due east of the city. However, that belies its accessibility from nearby Chester and destinations in North Wales, as well as further north in England via Preston and Carlisle, even as far as Glasgow in Scotland.

With a population of about 480,000 in the city itself, it ranks as the ninth-largest in the UK, although its wider metropolitan population of over 2.25 million places Liverpool in the top five on those terms, whilst having arguably the strongest cultural identity of any of England’s main cities.

In 2007 it officially marked its 800th anniversary, having been formally founded in 1207 via King John’s letters patent, it is believed that the King may have personally designed the early street layout for the city including Castle Street, Chapel Street, Dale Street and what are now High Street, Water Street, Tithebarn Street and Old Hall Street.

The River Mersey remains a major landmark for the city too and was responsible for Liverpool’s growth as a port – notably the port of registration for the RMS Titanic and her sister ships – whilst the docks have come to form the heart of the city in other ways too.

Kings Dock is now home to several Liverpool conference venues, including ACC Liverpool and the BT Convention Centre, allowing events to take place overlooking the River Mersey, all within easy reach of the road links like the Queensway Tunnel that allow traffic to pass beneath the riverbed.

The Gateway Conference Centre and Liverpool Conference Bureau provide further spaces for events, as do the meeting rooms at the University of Liverpool and in executive hotels across the city, giving a good selection of premises for all kinds of different training days, seminars and exhibitions.

Absolute Venues can undertake a search of private venues throughout the Liverpool area, to recommend a shortlist of suitable options, either in the city centre or across a slightly wider area if you wish, and to give you a manageable selection of facilities that meet all of your key search criteria for your upcoming events.

I haven’t thanked you for all the help you provided, which is very remiss of me. You were great – thank you! The hotel that we booked through you was really good – we had some teething problems at our first weekend, but they were very responsive in dealing with these for the second. We would gladly work with them again.
