China ‘town’ consists of one Main Street (Nelson St) which has an arch either end denoting the main part of the community. There is not a lot here at all, so don’t expect a feast for the eyes or the beauty of cooking smells (like...More

As I have lived in Liverpool all my life I know that Liverpool's Chinatown really only consists of one street but I will bet that most people who visit Liverpool with the intention of paying a trip to Chinatown will leave disappointed. There's no getting...More

Visited Nelson Street last year in the hope of eating a Chinese meal in one of the oldest Chinese communities in Britain. I wanted to use my credit card but there were only one or two which said that some but not all cards were...More

The majestic arch is worth a look and there are a few decent restaurants, but little else. There was supposed to have been a major redevelopment here, but it didn’t happen and the whole place feels rundown and lacks atmosphere. Liverpool has a wonderful Chinese...More

This is an impressive arch. Vibrant colours dramatic. And worth seeing . But that’s it. Nelson Street has few shops and restaurants— unlike the Chinatown I had expected to find.

I recently visited Liverpool's Chinatown. It is not as large as some others, but is still distinctive with a magnificent gate, lions, dragons, and lanterns. There are a few Chinese businesses, and it is a nice photo op point of call.

Chinatown is only a small area of Liverpool. It does have a magnificent Archway, donated in 2000. There are several small cafes and restaurants, a shop or two and other businesses, but it is not exactly vibrant. The English name of the street is also...More

After hearing so much about Liverpool's Chinese area and historical links etc, our evening visit was so disappointing. Unless we missed something, it's one street, a fantastic archway entrance, but otherwise quite rundown. Lots of empty buildings, closed restaurants, but fortunately we found the North...More

On our walk we fancied going here, it’s basically a small street with Chinese buildings (obviously) but it is just a small street. It’s well decorated and all the shops in the area all tie in with each other. A nice place to walk through...More
