Sensor City is situated on Russell Street, at the gateway to Knowledge Quarter Liverpool. With the city’s eclectic mix of University buildings, research facilities, libraries, museums and other centres of excellence right on our doorstep, our innovation hub occupies a truly unique location for learning, business development, collaboration and innovation.

Not only are we perfectly located for the Knowledge Quarter and its outstanding facilities, but we are also near the wide range of shops and restaurants which make up Liverpool’s bustling nightlife and retail and leisure offering, including Liverpool ONE, the UK’s largest open-air retail development.

We also benefit from excellent connectivity, with direct links to the wider city region, Manchester and London via road and rail.
