Merseyway Shopping Centre


Merseyway Shopping Centre opened in 1965 but was extensively refurbished in 1995. It consists mainly of a large pedestrianised street, where at one point there are two levels of walkways for shoppers, and there is access to both the first and ground floor of many shops. There is a small area of covered mall at the western edge of the centre, constructed in 1995.

It is built on giant stilts above the River Mersey and the river runs for the entire length of the centre. The river was first covered over in the late 1930s and a road built over the top.
