Liverpool’s Cavern Quarter’s historic archways restored

Liverpool’s famous Cavern Quarter’s historic archways have been restored.

The five archways, which decorate and signpost the entrances to Mathew Street, Button Street and Harrington Street, were installed 30 years ago to celebrate the home of the legendary Cavern Club and the home of The Beatles. 

Liverpool BID Company acquired ownership of the archways in March 2022 from the Cavern Quarter initiative and felt they needed a little love. The wrought iron archways, with the colourful street signs are a significant part of the character of the Cavern Quarter, which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.

The Cavern Quarter is part of the Retail & Leisure BID Area. In 2020, a masterplan for Cavern Quarter and Williamson Square was approved and published, with a Spatial Regeneration Framework (SRF) focused on improving the area and celebrating its heritage, particularly through artist-led intervention and animating blank spaces. 

Bill Addy, CEO of Liverpool BID Company said:

“The Cavern Quarter is such an important part of our city’s history and culture. As part of our investment in the city centre we want to animate our public realm but also ensure it is restored and kept in good shape.”
