Travel

The Museum is 5 minutes walk from Liverpool Lime Street Station, which is the most convenient means of access.

People visiting by car can aim for the Lime Street Station Car Park, Lord Nelson Street, Liverpool, L35QB, although this is busy and spaces cannot be guaranteed.  The next nearest car parks are the St John’s Arcade, L1 1NQ and the Queen Square Q-Park, L1 1RH.  Do not confuse the latter with the Liverpool One Q-Park which is 15 minutes walk away from the museum.

Further access details can be found on the museum’s website

 Accommodation

There is a good selection of hotels within walking distance of the Museum, which can be found on the usual travel or booking sites.  Travelodge Liverpool Central (L1 6ER) is well placed and inexpensive.
