Liverpool Football Club - Getting To Anfield

Getting To Anfield Stadium

Arriving at Anfield from City Centre

The easiest way to get to Anfield is by public transport. There is no specific pick-up/set-down area at the stadium for taxis to use. After the match, it is generally easier to hail a black cab than to use a pre-booked taxi. The Soccerbus service also runs from Sandhills Station; see the public transport section for more.
