Liverpool’s tourism industry is absolutely booming. Since being named as the European Capital of Culture in 2008, tourism in Liverpool has gone from strength to strength, and the north-west city welcomed over 56 million day visitors in 2015, and over 5 million staying visitors. In 2015 the tourism industry itself in Liverpool was worth a staggering £4bn a year, a 7% increase on the previous year.
Liverpool is home to a cruise terminal and the Liverpool John Lennon Airport. With the return of the Liverpool – North Wales cruise this summer and the wide range of museums, as well as being the birthplace of the Beatles, it is unsurprising that the city needs to accommodate a considerable number of overnight guests. As the city’s main attractions being concentrated within the city centre, it makes sense that this is where tourists will want to stay, to maximise their time in the city.

Sir Thomas House is a beautiful period conversion, retaining some of its original features that really add to its character and appeal, such as the façade and arched windows. Its exterior is so impressive it was featured in the Sunday Times Home section, in an article promoting beautiful buildings. Most rooms boast floor to ceiling windows, allowing for plenty of natural light to flood through. The individual studios are designed by award-winning SDA architects, who have capitalised on the space to really create an apartment feel.
