The RopeWalks, part of which lies within the UNESCO World Heritage site, is home to much of Liverpool’s history and culture, including the oldest Chinatown in Europe, FACT and the well-known entertainment areas around Concert Square.
The RopeWalks, like London’s Shoreditch or New York’s Meatpacking District, is Liverpool’s Design Quarter, where you will find an eclectic mix of old and new, traditional and modern.
Most of all, the RopeWalks enjoys what Benji Lanyado, writing in the New York Times, described as “that most heady of urban ingredients: an edge".

The film will probably also focus, in part, on the Battle of Salamis, in which Artemisia played a major role, as well as possibly the Battle of Marathon.
