Toxteth is within the inner city area of Liverpool and is bordered by Liverpool City Centre, Dingle, Edge Hill, Wavertree and Aigburth.

Toxteth is arguably one of Liverpool’s most woonderful older and ornate districts and is primarily residential, with a mixture of old terraced housing, post-World War II social housing and a legacy of large Victorian houses. In the 18th and 19th centuries, as Liverpool expanded the ancient park of Toxteth was gradually urbanised. Large Georgian houses were built in the Canning area, followed in the Victorian era by more grand houses, especially along the tree-lined Prince’s Road/Avenue boulevard and around Prince’s Park. The district quickly became home to the wealthy merchants of Liverpool, alongside a much larger poor population in modest Victorian terraces.

Two of the city’s largest parks, Sefton Park and Princes Park, are located in or around Toxteth. The earlier Princes Park was laid out by Richard Vaughan Yates around 1840, intending it to be used as open space, funded by the grand houses to be constructed around its edge, as would later happen with Sefton Park. Sefton Park was created by the then Corporation of Liverpool in 1872. Sefton Park has a large and beautifully restored glass Palm House.

Lying very close to the city centre, Toxteth is close to the magnificent Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and the Catholic Cathedral of Christ the King, not to mention some old-established pubs & restaurants, notably, The Philharmonic Dining Rooms (fondly known as ‘the phil’), voted in the’80’s by Egon Ronay as the most ornate pub in Britain, and adjacent to Liverpool’s art deco style and fantastic Philharmonic Hall.
