North West’s Largest Independent Estate Agent

For the unashamedly individual and corporate-avoiding visitor, there is no better place to visit than Lark Lane. Although the road is hidden behind the leafy residential streets that surround Sefton Park, there is a distinguished feel of vibrant energy that pulsates down the lane, creating a bohemian buzz that greets visitors of all ages.

The street is a hub for all things individual and independent, completely detaching itself from the cookie-cutter chains that congregate in the city centre. From bars and restaurants to vintage clothing stores and record shops, Lark Lane is a breath of fresh air for those who want to experience its truly unique and individualistic character.  

For the sweet-toothed and culinary adventurous, Lark Lane offers something for everyone. A melting pot of taste and savour, you can find the world’s most revered cuisines harmoniously blending together in the intimate but character-filled restaurants.

It may not offer the same number of bars or level of animation that the city centre offers, however, Lark Lane certainly does not lack in atmosphere or choice when it comes to deciding where to go of an evening. The truth is that neither Lark Lane or its many admirers want the area to be similar to the city and it is with this uniqueness that many have fallen for its inimitable charm.


With its close location to Sefton Park, Lark Lane is steeped in history. Its array of buildings, each designed with individual character and charm give the lane its unique vibe.

Most of the buildings in Lark Lane can date back to Victorian times and many of the area's current bars, restaurants and shops are housed in some of the historic buildings. 

Lark Lane Community Centre, for example, calls the old Police Station home, along with Phil's Picture Palace. The Albert pub was once home to a brewery owned by Robert Cain, of Cain's Brewery before it became a hotel. During its time on Lark Lane, it was also used as a temporary mortuary!
