There’s no parking around Sefton Park during the weekend of the festival so we kindly ask you not to drive in.
Every year, LIMF welcomes more visitors from all over the UK and beyond and here’s how you can find us…
The Arriva Shuttle Bus Service will be in operation from Saturday 21 to Sunday 22 July and will run each day after the event has finished, taking festival-goers into Liverpool City Centre. This service, which operates from 20.45, allows you to get on board at Croxteth Gate roundabout (near to the Hallmark Hotel) and will drop you off at Great Charlotte Street.
Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport is not too far from Sefton Park where LIMF takes place, so when you arrive in Liverpool why not take the bus. The handy 80A bus service from the airport towards Liverpool can drop you off at Ullet Road / Croxteth Road, close to the park, or the 82A to Aigburth Road is a short walk away.
