Gambier Terrace
Gambier Terrace ( Liverpool, England) is a row of houses situated on a terrace overlooking St. James Mount and Gardens and Liverpool Cathedral it was named after James Gambier. From number 1 to 10 are Grade II* Listed Buildings. They were designed by John Foster. Together with Hope Street and Rodney Street it forms the Rodney Street conservation area. The terrace was built in stages, the first between 1832 and 1837. It was originally planned that the entire row would be built in one go, but half way through the money ran out and number 10 was the last of the original build. The terrace was later completed to a cheaper specification. The freehold to the Terrace and the Garden area in front belongs to Liverpool City Council. The land next to Hope Street is maintained, in part, by the city council and the leaseholders. The exact status of this land is unclear except that it is unadopted by the City Council's highways department. The roadway is a public road and the Garden is used as a park by locals.

References in popular culture
Gambier Terrace is referred to and shown in the film Gumshoe (1971), an affectionate spoof of 'hard-boiled' detective novels that is set in Liverpool. The film's central character, Eddie Ginley, has a flat there, and several scenes take place in what purports to be the interior.
