Before that, many sites had been granted World Heritage status and even a small castle was built.

Strategically located to take advantage of this transatlantic trade, Liverpool soon became one of the fastest growing cities in the world. With the nearest port in Manchester, it also benefited greatly from the growth of the cotton industry in Lancashire. At the beginning of the 20th century Liverpool Docks, which stretched from Hornby (north) to the Herculaneum (south) in 1884, became the largest port in the UK outside London at the end of the century, after several new docks were built.
In the 1830s, the first railway line between Liverpool and Manchester was opened, the Manchester - Liverpool Line (now Liverpool - Manchester Line), the second of its kind in the world and the first in England to connect the two major cities. A railway network was established, providing a direct link between the city and the rest of Lancashire (and later Manchester), and soon it created the largest rail network in Europe and one of the most important for freight transport.
Liverpool began its place in world history when King John granted the city its market rights in 1207 and a group of monks from Birkenhead Priory established the very first ferry service across the Mersey around 1282. Another document, issued to the people of Liverpool in 1229, allowed the merchants of Liverpool to found themselves as a guild.
Liverpool remained in royal hands until it was defeated at the Battle of Marston Moor in the summer of 1644. During the Second World War, Liverpool became the second and most heavily bombed city in Britain and was one of the most heavily bombed cities in England and Wales during the war.
This enabled Liverpool to develop into an important international trading port as early as the 17th century. Liverpool was geographically well-placed - it could trade with new colonies across the Atlantic and the city flourished. In the mid-18th century, Liverpool was the second largest port in the world after New York City. The emigration had a dramatic impact on the population of Liverpool, as many people who wanted to travel to the New World settled in Liverpool.
