Liverpool has great transport links and is about 1 hr from Manchester by train/car.
If you book a city centre hotel e.g. those suggested above, then you should be within walking distance of all amenities for the weekend. (Everton FC is just outside the city centre – we are looking at providing a minibus service on the Saturday to/from the venue – single pick-up/drop off point in Liverpool city centre.)
Virgin trains run a regular hourly service from London Euston to Liverpool Lime Street station (which is a short walk to the city centre hotels). The journey takes just 2hrs 7 mins. Liverpool Lime Street can also be accessed from trains in other parts of the UK (you may need to change trains at Crewe). Check thetrainline.com for your journey – book early for the best rates.
Liverpool has its own airport – John Lennon Airport, although you may find that there are more frequent flights/cheaper options into Manchester airport – which is a 1hr taxi/train ride into Liverpool City Centre.
If you’re driving to Liverpool and staying in the city centre then chargeable off-site parking is available at Q-Park Hanover Street (L1 4AF) at a discounted rate (for those staying at Premier Inn, Liverpool One) of £10.50 per 24 hours or £4.50 overnight between 5pm-9am. Parking ticket to be validated at hotel reception. Check your hotel for similar parking concessions as most city centre hotels do not provide onsite parking.
We would love as many of our families to attend as possible so, if you want to join us but have any difficulties in doing so please contact Tomi as we may be able to provide some assistance for you.
