Once in Liverpool, the Merseyrail train network has good links to other areas of the region and an underground rail service serving 4 city centre stations, Lime Street, James Street, Moorfields and Liverpool Central.

Insider Tip: Pack light if you’re travelling by train and reserve your seat in advance if leaving Sunday or Monday. Monday is bank holiday and trains are full.

By Road

Liverpool City Region is well-connected to the UK motorway network. From the M6 take the M62, M58 or M56 direct to the destination.

To travel to Wirral Peninsula from the city centre, take the Mersey Tunnel and don’t forget the toll money! If you’re heading up to the coast, Southport is an enjoyable coastal drive away. The Silver Jubilee Bridge in Runcorn crosses the River Mersey and Manchester Ship Canal to provide convenient road access to Halton. Knowsley and St Helens are easily accessible too, both only a short drive from the city centre.
