Where is Liverpool?
Liverpool is in the north west of England near the Irish Sea coast, and can easily be reached from other parts of the UK. The ferry to Newcastle puts you just 3 hours and 24 minutes’ drive from Liverpool, with routes through some of the UK’s most beautiful landscapes. If you travel across the Channel to Dover, you can reach Liverpool in around 5 hours and 30 minutes.
Getting to Anfield
Anfield Stadium is to the north of the city centre, and is easiest to reach by public transport on match days. There is pre-booked parking available at the stadium, but this is limited. If you’re staying in central Liverpool, you can travel to Sandhills station from Liverpool Central and catch the Soccerbus to the stadium.
If you’re travelling from outside Liverpool, you can get the train to Lime Street Station, the city’s main railway station, and be directed by a dedicated matchday team.
The City of Liverpool
Liverpool was once the most important city in Britain outside of London, and was the country’s main port for goods and people coming from all corners of the world. This has given Liverpool a rich maritime heritage visible in its docks and its designated UNESCO World Heritage Site waterfront.
Pier Head features the famous Royal Liver Building, along with the Museum of Liverpool and the Mersey Ferry. Further into town you have the Cavern Club, of Beatles fame, and the city’s two breath-taking cathedrals, the Metropolitan Cathedral, and the Liverpool Cathedral, one of the largest in the world.
