As work continues on the Dixie Dean Hotel, we celebrate by highlighting some of the best Everton FC landmarks around Liverpool.
From historic Grade II listed buildings to statues commemorating Everton FC greats, the city is bursting with amazing things to see for football fans.
Check out some of our favourites below.
One of the most obvious Everton FC landmarks, Goodison Park has been home to the Premier League club since its completion in 1892.
Affectionately referred to as ‘The Grand Old Lady’, it has an all-seated capacity of 39,572 and is one of the world’s oldest purpose-built football grounds.
Adored by the Toffees, Goodison Park has hosted more top-flight games than any other stadium in England and is well worth a visit if you’re in Liverpool.
Whether you go on a ground tour or you travel to Stanley Park, it’s a highlight of the Everton FC landmarks.
A fitting tribute to arguably one of Everton’s greatest goalscorers of all time, the Dixie Dean statue is one of the best Everton FC landmarks in the city.
Unveiled in 2001 and crafted by Liverpool sculptor Tom Murphy, Dixie is forever remembered in the artist’s catalogue as a true Everton great.
Having previously stood outside Goodison Park, the statue was recently moved to its new home on Walton Lane, where it proudly stands as a beautiful memory of everything Dixie and Everton mean to the fans.
One of the most breathtaking Everton FC landmarks is the beautiful Everton Lock.
Dating back to 1787, this conical Grade II listed structure is famously found on the Everton FC crest and is even better in real life.
Take a stroll up to the top of Everton Brow and discover the history behind its life as Prince Rupert’s Tower and its footballing importance.
It’s even more stunning at night when it’s lit up in the Everton blue.
A hero of Everton FC, William Ralph ‘Dixie’ Dean was born on 313 Laird Street in Birkenhead, on January 22, 1907.
The family home was modest, located in Birkenhead’s North End, close to the docks and within view of the River Mersey and the iconic city that lay beyond.
It was in this home that Dixie Dean’s love of football first spawned after William Sr took little Dixie to his first match – an Everton game in the 1914-1915 title-winning season.
The roads surrounding Laird Street were to be the place where his iconic nickname was first picked up. Dubbed ‘Digsy’ for his aggressive style of play.
Today, you can visit the road were it all began and see the house where the legend’s story began.
These Everton FC landmarks may not be built yet, but they promise to be some of the most fitting tributes to the football club yet.
Dixie Dean is undoubtedly one of Liverpool’s most treasured icons and a footballing legend.
Dedicated to the legendary Everton footballer, the luxury hotel will be a tribute to the great Dixie Dean, a footballer who famously scored an outstanding 60 goals in the 1927-28 league season.
The Dixie Dean Hotel will commemorate the life of Dixie both on and off the pitch with a luxurious 100 bedroom luxury hotel. It will offer guests a unique, football themed experience, featuring restaurants, bars and an events space for weddings.
There will also be a dedicated museum to Dixie Dean, housing never-seen-before memorabilia and trinkets from the footballing legend’s career.
The Dixie Dean Hotel will sit across the road from the famous Shankly Hotel, creating an area between the two sites that will become the world’s first football quarter.
It is hoped that this area of town will become a tree-lined pedestrianised area, with beautiful statues commemorating the footballing greats of both Everton and Liverpool FC.
Both Dixie Dean and Bill Shankly were lifelong friends despite the rivalry of their respective teams. It is the first time that any city in the world has had two themed football hotels conceived to celebrate the achievements of such footballing greats.
The introduction of the Football Quarter will give the city a vital boost in the tourism and hospitality sector, as well as creating an amazing experience for football fans and the people of Liverpool.
This is sure to be one of the best Everton FC landmarks in the whole of Liverpool.
