    I'm relocating to Liverpool from Scotland in a few weeks :cry2: cos i got a job in the Bootle area 🙌 however I've heard that Bootle is a very rough place to live in so it's a no-no 😕 Does anyone know of nice places close to bootle that i could stay in. I'm 22, female and moving alone so I'd really rather not have to look over my shoulder everytime i walk home from work.

    Seriously op. Look into Toxteth lol I'm kidding. Ifd you want something nice try some of these places in merseyside. Try formby or crosby.

    I mean bootle is in merseyside so you might have slim pickings for a nice place. There's nicer places outsider like cressington.

    Sefton Park and Lark Lane are incredibly lovely places! It's just like Huyton (which is a dump) being next to Roby (which isn't a dump)

    Yea I was joking about the Toxteth but you're too sharp for me lool

    And I dunno exactly ask Deyesy he's from, I just know of these places. And Cressington is outside of liverpool where you wanna go but I know it can't be too far. Should be like 20 mins drive? You can take a train i think.

    Cressington to Bootle would definitely require a car :lol: But if you're talking from the city centre, you can jump on the Central train line and yeah it's probably like 15 minutes (at most) on the train?

    Bootle isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Even toxteth isn't 'that' bad anymore

    Bootle is not that bad, you're not going to get stabbed.

    I've lived in Liverpool for years, from toxteth to Sefton ect and I have never feared for my safety.

    That being said childwall is a lovely area, though not particularly close to bootle.

    Also you may want to consider whether you need a car. Most places in Liverpool have excellent and frequent public transport. You could save a lot of money. I can't imagine owning a car here unless I was frequently leaving the city. Such a waste of money.

    New Brighton ins't in Liverpool? Not to mention since it's by the sea housing/rent prices in the nice areas of New Brighton will likely be much more expensive than the nicer areas of Liverpool.
