"One of Europe's oldest Chinatowns" Chinatown Tip by King_Golo
Chinatown, Liverpool: 21 reviews and 35 photos
Liverpool has a quite large Asian community, many of it settling around the spectacular Chinese Arch in Chinatown. The area along Nelson Street does look English - however, with a Chinese touch: The street signs are in two languages, many of the shops and restaurants bear Chinese names, the parking ticket machines are designed to look somewhat Asian and much more. The main hint that you are in a Chinese neigbourhood, however, is the spectacular Arch. Opened only in 2000 during the Chinese New Year celebrations, it has become one of the most interesting sights of the city. Moreover, it is the largest arch of its kind outside China!
Take a look at the fine carvings which shimmer in the sunlight. All of them were made in Shanghai and then transported to England.
