Being YPP’s first student property in Liverpool we knew it had to be special. We didn’t want it to be average, OK, fine or even good… we needed it to be a bobby dazzler! And that it is. After months of research trying to find the best location for our tenants we must admit we’re patting ourselves on the back.

Located at 19 Water Street, L2 0SE, here is why the location of Gravity Residence gets a 10 out of 10 from us…

The Underground. If you’ve ever been on the London Tube then the word ‘Underground’ might just make your palms sweat, your heart race and your anxiety start to creep in, but in fact, The Liverpool Underground is like riding 1st class on Emirates with unlimited champagne and a free eye mask in comparison. In fact, the difference between London’s busiest station Waterloo and Liverpool’s busiest station Liverpool Central, is a whopping 84.3 million people per year. Now that’s a lot of people.

Yes, they might be a bit warm in summer, what can you expect being 50 meters closer to the Earth’s core? But they’re quick, they come regularly, there’s no stopping at zebra crossings and Liverpool St James Street is a mere 4-minute walk from Gravity Residence. How’s that for location? Even better, if you want to call in at Moose coffee on your way (we’ll come to that later) or you’re trying to up the step count on your Fitbit then Moorfields station in only a 6-minute walk in the other direction. We’re practically spoiling you. Now with lift access, escalators and the power to buy tickets on your phone, every other city in the north is now green with envy.

Nightlife. When you think of a night out in Liverpool you immediately think of super high stilettos, false lashes, fake-tan and curlers, everyone puts in so much effort and it’s great. But what isn’t so great is the walk home at the end of the night via the local kebab shop in said super high stilettos. Which is another reason why Gravity Residence should be your number one when looking for student accommodation in Liverpool. Whether you prefer pubs, clubs or bars you know that getting home will be a doddle. We’ve already mentioned The Underground if you do want to venture slightly further out but if you want to save those aching feet you really don’t have to go far. In fact, you’ve got hundreds of options right on your door step from independent bars to all your big names like Revolution and All Bar One. So that’s less money on expensive taxis and more money on cocktails!

Radio City Tower. Also called St John’s beacon this observation tower stands at 138 meters tall providing a 360-degree panoramic view of Liverpool for anyone that doesn’t have a fear of heights. And only a short 12-minute walk from Gravity Residence this means you don’t have to worry about hiring a car when family and friends come to visit. One trip up to the observation deck for £6 (child and student discount available) and they will understand why you chose Liverpool over your deserted home town with nothing but a closed down petrol station, even if your Mum did spend two years trying to get you to live with her forever.

The Waterfront. Turn left out of Gravity Residence, follow the road down for 4 minutes and you’ll find yourself in the Dock. Yes, the road literally leads right into the water, it’s that close. And why would I want to be at the Dock you ask? Very good question. More than just boats and ferries you’ll find an array of cafés, bars and restaurants with fabulous views overlooking the water but what’s more are the number of tourist attractions that aren’t 138 meters up in the sky this time. There’s Echo Arena, Museum of Liverpool, The Beatles Story, The Ferris Wheel, The Exhibition Centre, Liverpool water sports centre, Pier head village, Titanic Memorial and The Royal Liver building, just to name a few. Now if that doesn’t keep your Nana busy when she comes to visit for the weekend I don’t know what will.

Supermarkets. You can forget about opening the fridge to nothing but empty shelves and a jar of olives way past their sell by date, because once again (I bet you’re bored of us saying this) everything is right on your doorstep. There’s a Sainsbury’s local and a Tesco Express both only a 4-minute walk away, an Aldi and a Lidl both within a 20-minute walk, an Asda superstore a 13-minute drive away and a Marks & Spencer simply food just a 9-minute drive away. This means whether you’re shopping for your Monday night beans on toast for one, or your steak for Friday’s date night, its easy to grab on your way home.

Liverpool One. If you’re a shopaholic with a large amount of debt then maybe Gravity Residence isn’t for you, but for everyone else, it’s a shopper’s dream. Not many people can say they have over 170 shops, bars and restaurants within a 5-minute walk, but if you live at Gravity Residence it’s certainly something you can boast about. Last minute night out and nothing to wear? Forgot to get your Nan a 70th birthday card? Broken your phone charger? Sudden craving for chicken wings? Whatever the crisis, Liverpool One can probably solve it, and you’d be there and back in 10 minutes. Open until 11pm 7 days a week and with regular events such as Yoga, Bingo, Ping Pong and lip sync battles, you better be prepared for a busy social life.

Restaurants. If the thought of cooking steak for date night brings back vivid memories of that house fire you nearly started once, then why not head to a restaurant? With Caribbean, Brazilian, Greek and Argentinian restaurants as well as pizzerias, steak houses, all-you-can-eat buffets, street food and fine-dining all within a 5-minute walk, you really will be stuck for choice. As well as your favourites like Nando’s and Jamie’s Italian you have plenty of smaller independent eateries each offering something unique. Whether you like exploring new places or sticking to what you know, Liverpool won’t let you down when it comes to food.

Lunch spots. Believe it or not, yet again you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to cafes, coffee shops, sandwich bars, bakeries and just fast food in general. If you’re looking for something a bit different to your everyday McDonalds or Greggs, then we recommend you head just 3 minutes up the road from Gravity Restaurant to Izakaya for some Sushi, or to Moose Coffee right next door for some Instagram worthy pancakes.

I know what you’re thinking… Where do I go first? Well don’t worry, if you sign for an apartment in Gravity Residence you’ve got at least a whole year to try all the things we’ve mentioned. And with everything being within a 10-minute walk you know it will be hard to find excuses not to. Choose Gravity Residence as your new student accommodation and you’ll not only be getting a shiny new flat, but you’ll be getting a fun-packed lifestyle to go with it! Who can say no to that?Being YPP’s first student property in Liverpool we knew it had to be special. We didn’t want it to be average, OK, fine or even good… we needed it to be a bobby dazzler!
