Travel Information

Travelling by Train

Unfortunately there is disruption to the Liverpool Lime Street station during October. The following lines usually run services into Lime Street: East Midlands, London Midland, Merseyrail, Northern, Transpennine Express and Virgin. These services will be diverted or require you to change trains at a station outside of Liverpool.

The Merseyrail train service will take you into James Street which is less than a 15 minute walk from the ACC. You can also take this line further into the city to Moorefields Station if this is more convenient for your hotel.

Many trains are not disrupted until late in the evening. If you travel to the event from a Liverpool suburb on a line that has a rail replacement, you can alternatively consider driving and parking your car. Scroll down to view driving details.
