Wavertree is one of the areas in south Liverpool populated by students of Liverpool’s three universities, especially the Smithdown Road area. This road is known for “The Smithdown Ten” pub crawl, although the number of pubs in business varies year to year.
It is also home to the annual Smithdown Road Festival, with local bars and cafes hosting almost 200 bands every year.
The community is ethnically diverse, with significant South Asian and black populations.
Wavertree boasts a village lock-up, commonly known as The Roundhouse, despite being octagonal in shape. Built in 1796, and later modified by prominent local resident and architect Sir James Picton, it was once used to detain local drunks. The lock-up was made a listed building in 1952. A similar structure, Everton Lock-Up sometimes called Prince Rupert’s Tower, survives in Everton. The village green, on which Wavertree’s lock-up was built, is officially the only surviving piece of common land in Liverpool.
Holy Trinity Church was built in 1794 and is situated on Church Road close to the famous Blue Coat School.
Wavertree Town Hall was built in 1872 as the headquarters of the Wavertree Local Board of Health. The motto on the town hall is sub umbra floresco or “I flourish in the shade”. Rescued from demolition in 1979, the town hall is now a pub.
In 1895, the village of Wavertree was incorporated into the city of Liverpool.
