With a population of 434,900, Liverpool is the eighth largest city in the United Kingdom.
Situated in the North West of England, it has good road and rail connections, along with rapid trans-global sea routes. There are also two international airports nearby: Liverpool John Lennon Airport in the south of the city, and Manchester Airport less than an hour's drive away.
Major regeneration projects, inward business investment and an increase in jobs for local people have seen an upturn in the city's economy in recent years.
