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…

LIMF Shuttle Bus

The Shuttle Bus Service will be in operation from Saturday 20 to Sunday 21 July and will run each day after the event has finished, taking festival-goers into Liverpool City Centre. This service, which starts 15 minutes prior to the end of the festival, allows you to get on board at Croxteth Gate roundabout (near to the Hallmark Hotel) and will drop you off at Great Charlotte Street (near Lime Street Station) for just £2.

By Air

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.

You can find more detailed information about flight timetables here.

By Train

Due to a cable fault on the Hunts Cross line, the power supply to the third rail has been severely reduced preventing the running of passenger services between Liverpool Central and Hunts Cross.

We have been advised by Network Rail that disruption is expected to continue over the LIMF weekend.

A rail replacement bus service is in operation between St George’s Plateau (for Liverpool Central) and Hunts Cross in both directions calling at all stations. Rail tickets and passes are also being accepted on Arriva’s 80, 82 and 86 buses and mainline train services.

The locations of rail replacement bus stops can be found on the individual station pages here.

Travelling to and from LIMF

In addition to rail replacement buses calling at all Hunts Cross line stations, the following express buses will run to get passengers to and from LIMF as quickly as possible:

  • Express between St George’s Plateau (for Liverpool Central) and Aigburth Road (for St Michaels station and Sefton Park)
  • Express between Liverpool South Parkway and Aigburth Road (for St Michaels station and Sefton Park)

Southport services are running as per the normal timetable, however they will start and terminate at Liverpool Central. All other Northern line services are unaffected at present.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience during this time.
