Please note that this exhibition has now closed

Liverpool has been officially named a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

At the heart of this new World Heritage Site is the world-famous Liverpool waterfront.

During the 19th and early 20th centuries Britain was a true world power, and Liverpool was her pre-eminent commercial port. The buildings and structures shown in these photographs reflect that mercantile might. The grand docks, offices, banks, exchanges, warehouses and cultural buildings demonstrate Liverpool’s global importance.
