I thought I would do another Liverpool-themed post after having had a lovely wander about with my parents a couple of weekends ago. We started on Hope Street and then made our way past Hope Street Hotel to Duke Street and down to the Chinese archway.
We then walked through Chinatown over to the Baltic triangle, a previously neglected area of Liverpool which is slowly being regenerated. I had heard a lot about the Baltic Bakehouse, an independent bakery which sells freshly baked breads and pastries.
After picking up a loaf of bread, still warm from the oven, we walked over to Cleveland Square and stopped off at Cow and Co. Cafe for lunch. It was such a lovely day that we enjoyed our coffees, probably the best in Liverpool, and sandwiches outside in the sun. As well as serving freshly made sandwiches and delicious coffee Cow and Co. also sells a small selected range of homeware goods and I picked up and amazing handmade ceramic pot for one of my new succulents.
A few more photographs from the afternoon; gates from the Liverpool Sailors’ Home which stand outside John Lewis (original site of the Liverpool Sailors’ Home), old warehouses on College Lane, one of the beautiful art deco buildings in Liverpool).
