Welcome to Liverpool, hometown of The Beatles! Liverpool is situated on the north-west coast of England and lies on the River Mersey. The city has a population of almost 500,000, making it one of the largest cities in England. Liverpool is most famous for its two football clubs and its iconic music scene. 

Liverpool Airport (LPL) is only 7 miles south of the city centre and there are daily domestic and European flights. There is a regular bus service from the airport into the city centre, or you can call one of the local taxi companies. If you are travelling by bus or train, Norton Street Coach Station and both Lime Street and Central train stations are located in the city centre. (TIP: Another option is to fly to Manchester Airport (MAN) and connect to Liverpool by bus or train).

Public transport in Liverpool is excellent. There are extensive bus, train and ferry services operating within the city and surrounding suburbs. All public transport options are inexpensive, however, many students walk or cycle.

For short term accommodation, use one of the city's quality hostels. For longer term student accommodation in Liverpool, please check out the accommodation section of the website.

Liverpool has a number of attractions to keep you busy. Spend a few hours in the Merseyside Maritime Museum or the Walker Art Gallery, visit The Beatles Story museum, or enjoy a show at the Liverpool Playhouse. If you are a sports fan there is 'Premier League football' at Anfield and Goodison Park, and horse racing at Aintree racecourse. For the more energetic, enjoy a run or a cycle through the streets and parks of the city. We recommend taking in a music gig at the The Cavern Club, venue of regular Beatles' performances in the 60's and 70's.

Liverpool has a fantastic reputation for excellent shopping. The main shopping area in the city centre is located around Lord Street and Bold Street. The city has a number of shopping malls including the Liverpool ONE, the Metquarter and the St John's Shopping Centre. Liverpool also has a number of interesting and fun local farmers' markets, including the Monument Square Farmers' Market held twice a month. 

Liverpool is home to three universities and a couple of colleges. The universities are, the University of Liverpool
Liverpool Hope University and Liverpool John Moores University. For more info. on studying at any of these, please visit the university section of the website.
