Ropewalks including Bold Street, Duke Street

Ropewalks is a lovely treasure trove of quirky bars, restaurants, independent stores and cultural venues.

Characterised by its long streets that run parallel to each other, it’s name is derived from the rope-making trade that dominated the area during the 18th and 19th centuries. The streets were built in straight lines as this allowed the rope manufacturers to lay the ropes out during production - interesting!

Ropewalks is also filled with historic warehouse buildings from the rope-making industry, which really give the area its special, rustic character.

Chinatown is technically classed under the Ropewalks area of the city, but is well worth a mention of its own.

The Chinese arch has also earned its place as a must-see landmark after it was constructed in 2000 and is the largest Chinese arch outside of China itself!
