Audio tour delivered by Lloyd Grossman
Liverpool's bid for World Heritage status - based on the city's world famous waterfront and cultural buildings - was approved by UNESCO in July 2004.
The city's bid was centred on Liverpool as a Maritime Mercantile city and reflected the city's significance as a commercial port at the time of Britain's greatest global influence.
Discover more about Liverpool with our World Heritage walking tour around the city. Heritage expert Loyd Grossman will take you on an hour-long tour through the city's eight centuries of history.
