We may be biased, but when it comes to picking your ideal living location, here at Signature Works we simply couldn’t dream of being anywhere better than Liverpool. That’s why we setup our flexible office and collaborative working space right at the heart of Liverpool city centre. From The Beatles and the famous Penny Lane, to the unrivalled football history and rich culture – there’s just something about Liverpool that draws people in and keeps them coming back time and time again.
But how does the city stand up against the big smoke? London has a reputation for being fast-paced and at the heart of all that is current, but what is it like to live there? With approximately 550,000 more Brits moving out of the capital over the past decade than those moving in – it begs the question; is London really all it’s cracked up to be?
If you’re on the fence about which city you should call home, let us help. Here’s why we think Liverpool should be at the top of your list for city living.
Voted as the UK’s Capital of Culture in 2008, and at the heart of the North West, Liverpool has been our home since 2017 when we very first opened our doors. We have seen first-hand the drive of local talent and independent businesses, and the buzz of the Liverpudlian community – and we get why so many people want to be a part of it.
The Liver Building, Albert Docks and the iconic Superlambanana are just a few of the reasons Liverpool is so great. And whilst London is certainly a cultural hot bed, we can’t help but be disillusioned by the crowded, lengthy commutes just to navigate from one side of the city to the other.
Liverpool offers everything within a short distance. So, whether you fancy visiting the Tate or the Maritime Museum, or just taking in the sights of some of the finest architecture the UK has to offer – you won’t have to go far. A far cry from the sweaty tube and throngs of tourists, don’t you think?
One thing we can agree on is that great food is the mark of a great city – and Liverpool offers nothing short of fantastic culinary choice!
Venture down Bold Street, featuring all the trappings of a Bohemian haven and you will be spoilt for choice. Independent cafes and eateries line the street, each as different as the next offering vegetarian, vegan and carnivorous delights for all.
If you love street food, you will be in your element in Liverpool – with big names such as Lucha Libre, Camp and Furnace and Neon Jamon – to name a few, all a short distance away from each other, and only a quick walk from our offices which are coincidently located right at the heart of it all – you’re welcome!
We even offer our members discounts on a huge selection of bars and restaurants as standard if you’re part of our Signature Works family.
If there’s one thing we can say with certainty, it is that Liverpool is much more affordable than London. From eating out to dining in, transport, accommodation – a bag of crisps from the local shop – you won’t be charged top dollar for your basic living needs.
Whilst the option is there to live luxuriously if you so choose to, you can live comfortably in the city without forking out huge amounts of your well-earned money on a daily basis.
To make life that bit sweeter, our membership comes with a privilege card as standard, giving you access to hundreds of discounts across all sorts of industries, so you can always find the best bargains.
Liverpool is one of the most ideally located cities in the country. From here you can get pretty much anywhere in the UK with minimum effort – great news if you travel a lot for work.
But what’s more, is that Liverpool is a veritable smorgasbord of skills and opportunities. Home to one of the best universities in the country, Liverpool University, not to mention a host of other esteemed learning and teaching establishments, the talent pool in the city is out of this world.
Why else do you think we created Signature Connect? We want to bring businesses together, making it easier for start-ups to get connected, and adding something to the already buzzing connectivity of Liverpool.
