Get around[edit]




  • Select Fashions Ltd., Bootle Strand. Women's fashion, and at decent prices. The store is also very accepting for LGBT individuals too.






Bootle has a large Irish community, and the advice given in the Ireland and Northern Ireland articles apply here in terms of respect. Some Irish people are of Northern Irish descent and may be sensitive about being called Irish, so always ask first where they're from to avoid causing offence.

Some individuals in Bootle are sensitive about being called a Scouser even though the town is contiguous with Liverpool.

People who are LGBT may face hostility and problems in some parts, mainly due to more traditional attitudes towards homosexuality and bisexuality, and gender identities. You may wish to avoid being open about your sexuality.
