Alternatively, you may consider the following hotels (we have not reserved any rooms with them; the price below is correct at the time of writing and may differ when you book):
Liverpool John Lennon Airport is situated eight miles
from the city. The main airlines operating from
Liverpool John Lennon Airport are
Ryanair and easyJet. So, the number of
flight connections is a bit limited, but if you are lucky enough to be able to use one of them, you might be able
to pick up a cheap ticket.
Manchester Airport offers more comprehensive connections to the world including intercontinental flights. Your local travel agency should easily be able to organise a flight to Manchester Airport for you wherever you are. There are rail links from Manchester Airport directly into Liverpool City Centre (journey time to Liverpool Lime Street roughly 75 minutes); see the Wikipedia for some general information about these rail links or refer to the Rail travel information below.
The Campus is just a ten-minute walk away from the nearest mainline station at Lime Street. To reach the University Campus by foot, take the main exit and turn left into Lime Street; then turn left again at the Britannia Adelphi Hotel and continue up Brownlow Hill towards the Metropolitan Catholic Cathedral and Victoria Building with its clock tower. (It's going uphill a bit, so you probably want to avoid this option if you have luggage.)

From the M62: at the end of the motorway continue straight ahead onto Edge Lane (A5080 then A5047) and follow signs for Liverpool City Centre and the University. Parking on the Campus is very limited and requires a University permit. All visitors should therefore use the nearest city council car park, which can be found at the bottom of Mount Pleasant, towards the City Centre.
