Court yard at The Bluecoat - Liverpool LOCATION. LOCATION. LOCATION! Our shop is in the courtyard of an iconic building – The Bluecoat. Grade 1 listed and the oldest building in the centre of Liverpool, the Bluecoat was built in 1717 and for the last 100 years has been an active Arts Hub. The Bluecoat is right at the heart of the city, parking nearby and within a quarter mile of both main rail stations. Access is also available on the level through the main reception. Galleries, studios including fine printing, other arts activities and related retail wrap around both the courtyard and the tranquil inner garden.
