Getting to Anfield Stadium in Liverpool

Are you planning to visit the city of Liverpool and explore Anfield, the famous stadium of Liverpool Football Club? Or perhaps you have tickets for an upcoming match and want to tour the city ahead of kick-off?

Liverpool isn’t a particularly large city but if this is your first visit you may struggle to find your way around. To help make your visit a smooth experience, we have compiled a list of some of the ways in which you can get to Anfield Stadium, the home of England’s most successful football club.

Liverpool has a fantastic transport infrastructure and is one of the largest cities in the North West so getting to Anfield is relatively simple whether you’re travelling by car, bus, train or other. With Liverpool FC boasting millions of international fans, Liverpool is near some of the country’s largest airports and the city itself is very welcoming to visitors.

Lime Street to Anfield

If you’re travelling to the city via train, Lime Street Station is located in the heart of the city and connects to railways throughout the country while Liverpool Central Station is just a short walk away. Whatever station your train stops at, Lime Street or Central, rest assured there’s plenty of places to visit within walking distance as well as a range of transport options to further your journey to Anfield.

Liverpool City Centre to Anfield

As we mentioned previously, Liverpool is a perfect city for travellers coming into the city from another country. As well as several train stations, you can find the city’s two largest bus stations at Queen Square Bus Station and Liverpool One Bus Station.  The city centre also happens to be an incredible destination to experience the build up atmosphere hours ahead of a big match!

Liverpool John Lennon Airport to Anfield

Liverpool John Lennon Airport offers routes from a number of countries throughout the world. When you arrive, you can continue onwards to the city centre via local bus, train and taxi services. Alternatively, Manchester Airport is just 40 minutes away via car and is one of the largest airports in the world so you shouldn’t have a problem finding a direct or connecting route.

Driving to Anfield

Are you visiting Liverpool by car? Then you can access the city via highly-connected motorways such as the M57 and M62. However, parking around the stadium can be a big hassle on matchdays so we recommend leaving your car elsewhere and instead opt for public transport when travelling to the ground.

Liverpool Bus to Anfield

Once you have arrived in the city, the city centre is your best place for transport and there are a number of routes connecting to Anfield. One of the best ways to get to Anfield Stadium is without a doubt the LFC City Explorer Liverpool bus tour which stops right outside the stadium. This LFC bus has been designed to enable tourists to catch the best sights throughout the city including incredible views from Everton Park.

With LFC City Explorer, you are able to hop on and hop off at designated stops throughout the route, allowing you to take a sightseeing break before continuing your journey. This bus tour stops right outside Anfield Stadium before beginning the reverse journey towards the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool. Are you looking for more things to do in the city?
