How to get to the Liverpool Christmas Market

When travelling to Liverpool's Christmas Market, there are many comfortable and convenient options.

If you're travelling from Birmingham New Street, in roughly 90 minutes you'll arrive at Liverpool Lime Street. If you're journeying from London Euston, expect a direct and smooth ride that takes little more than two hours.

For those setting off from Manchester Piccadilly, the ride is even shorter. In less than an hour, you can enjoy the inviting scents of mulled wine and seasonal treats at the market.

And for travellers from the far North, you can take a direct trip from Edinburgh Waverley. This will bring you the festive delights of Liverpool within a touch over three hours.

After arriving at Liverpool Lime Street Station, the market is a few minutes' walk away. This year, it has a new location in St Johns Gardens, William Brown Street, and the North Entrance of Georges Hall.

You won't have any issues finding the Christmas Market, even if you only use your ears.

About the Liverpool Christmas Market

Each year, the Liverpool Christmas Market surpasses itself. As the market keeps growing, it is adding new attractions and stalls. Last year, the city centre attracted 71.7 million visitors, showing how popular it is.

In 2022, a study by Berkley Group declared Liverpool as 'the most Christmassy city in the UK'. This analysis ranked each city against a series of festive factors. Liverpool took its top podium position due to its high likelihood of snow and its extravagant Christmas lights.
