Travelling to Liverpool and the conference site

 

Liverpool is a city in the west of England on the river Mersey. You may wish to use our zoomable map to see where exactly Liverpool is located, and where airports and conference site are.

The conference site

The conference will be held in the famous Royal Liver Building.

Take the entrance on the river side, near the Beatles statue. Distance from the city centre and Albert Dock to the Liver Bird Building is short and can be easily covered on foot.

Travelling to Liverpool

by air

Liverpool has an airport (LPL, “Liverpool John Lennon Airport”) and is served mainly by low-cost airlines such as EasyJet, Ryanair, and WizzAir. To travel from the airport to the city centre you can use a direct bus (500 bus to Liverpool One bus station), or bus 80A or 86A via nearby Liverpool South Parkway (where you can also take the train). Tickets can be bought on the bus, Arriva Airlink 500 costs GBP 3.00 for a single journey  (price March 2020).

A good alternative may be Manchester Airport.  From Manchester airport you can take a direct train that will take you to Liverpool Lime Street in 1 hour and 15 minutes.

by train

Check for trains for example the trainline. Trains from London Euston to Liverpool Lime Street station take around 2:15 to 2:30 hours. You can buy tickets in advance via trainline (app).

Hotels

As part of the service the company with which we co-operate have set up a website that offers hotel accommodation in the vicinity of the conference site at a reduced rate. This is their link.

Brexit

With postponing the conference to spring 2022 there will be some consequences as a result of Brexit. Business travel as EU, EEA, or Swiss citizen should not change too much, i.e. you will not need visa, however to enter the country and visit the conference you will need a passport that is valid. An ID card does not suffice anymore. More information is here. Want to check what you need (also for non EU citizens)? Start here.

We’ll try to keep you updated on changes here also.
