Districts & Places


This page looks at the various districts of the city of Liverpool as well as the various towns and villages that surround the city.

The following tables attempt to list the districts of the city of Liverpool and also these various villages and towns that are around it. Strict adherance to the scope of the metropolitan county of "Merseyside" has been deliberatley avoided in the case of the latter. Instead, places that are physically close or have connections with the city have been chosen in preference.

Liverpool was first divided in to postal districts in 1864 using a system with "north", "west", "south" etc. as still in use today in London. Nowadays the postal codes typically start with "L" in line with a system of codes that are unique throughout the whole of Britain. The first part of the place's post code (where known) has been added after the name in the tables.
