From the city centre the Cathedral is about a 10 minute walk. There are signs throughout the city centre directing visitors to the two cathedrals. Head for the Adelphi Hotel and then walk up Mount Pleasant which runs from the right of the hotel as you face it, and is the right hand of the fork, keeping to the right of the multi-storey car park.


If using satnav, please input L3 5TQ , or Mount Pleasant. Alternatively follow the brown tourist signs for the Cathedrals or Liverpool University. There is a car park underneath the Cathedral which is normally available to visitors.

Mainline trains terminate at Lime Street Station.  The cathedral is about a 10 minute walk from the station.  On leaving the station, turn left on to Lime Street and then left again up Skelhorne Street. This joins Copperas Hill.  At the traffic lights turn right on to Russell Street. Turn left at the traffic lights on to Brownlow Hill.  The Cathedral is clearly visible from there.

Central Station is the nearest Merseyrail station to the cathedral.   On exiting the station via the main entrance, turn right and walk up the hill.   The Adelphi Hotel is obvious across the road.   Take the right hand fork to the right of the hotel – Mount Pleasant – and walk up the hill to the cathedral which is on the left at the second set of traffic lights.


The Cathedral has an underground car park which is open from 7.30am – 6.00pm. There are also spaces for disabled drivers, which are clearly marked. Parking charges are £1.00 for 1 hour; £2.00 for 2 hours; £5.00 all day to 6.00pm. The height restriction for the Cathedral Car Park is 7 foot 6 inches. If this car park becomes full or your vehicle is taller than 7ft 6” you may park across the road in the University of Liverpool Car Park, you must also pay and display here. Cathedral Security will advise once their car park is full.

Coaches are asked to drop your group on Mount Pleasant in the coach layby which is a short walk to the Cathedral.
