Advice on where to find the best parking on match days, for special events and during busy periods.

Home to Liverpool FC, one of the giants in English football, Anfield Stadium boasts a huge seated capacity of over 61,000 people. The stadium has been expanded twice over recent years, extending the capacity by 17,000 seats. And whilst that’s delighted many Liverpool fans, it has caused headaches for those heading to the stadium by car. Aside from a small number of disabled spaces, no more parking spaces were added as part of the redevelopment. Anfield was already a difficult location for home and away fans arriving by road - with more seats, the parking problem has only increased. 

That’s why we’ve pulled together this helpful guide — to make sure matchday parking at Anfield doesn’t become the main event. 

How to get to Anfield

Located 2.4 miles North-East of Liverpool City Centre, Anfield is easily accessible by foot, public transport and car. Driving can often be the most convenient option, especially when travelling with groups of friends or with the family and bringing additional items for a day out.

If you’re travelling from:

  • North: use the A59 and M58
  • East: use the A580 and M62
  • West: use the M53 and A49
  • South: use the M6 and M62

Trains and buses can also be used from the city centre and areas further afield. If you’re planning to drive, it’s best to come as early as possible to avoid particularly congested streets around match times. You can find Liverpool FC's full list of fixtures for the rest of the season on the club's website.

Prepare in advance for Anfield matchday parking

During the football season, which runs from August until May each year, Liverpool FC play a match at Anfield Stadium roughly once every week. Since Jurgen Klopp took over at Anfield, Liverpool FC has frequently advanced to the latter stages of the FA Cup, League Cup, and European competitions. This means that Anfield is hosting football matches much more frequently than many other Premier League stadia.

There is very little official parking available at Anfield since the stadium is in a residential area. Spaces on-site can get taken very quickly, hours before a match even begins — the same goes for nearby pay and display car parks in the Liverpool city centre.

However, with a little advance planning, you reserve a guaranteed parking space through JustPark either on a nearby resident’s drive or in a car park, making matchday parking much simpler (and often cheaper). Lots of the spaces are within an under 10 minute walk, meaning you’re close to the action, and don’t have to worry about searching for a space.

Anfield event parking

Similarly to matches, big events such as Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour draw in massive crowds, often for days at a time. With tickets to such events usually selling out far in advance, it is important that you book your Anfield parking beforehand, to guarantee the cheapest prices possible. 

Getting to Anfield by public transport

With Anfield only being around 15 minutes away from Liverpool City Centre, the stadium recommends that people use public transport to complete the last step of their journey. The 917 bus takes you directly from the city centre to Anfield, with an adult return ticket costing just £4.60, and there are other local services from Queen Square Bus Station and Liverpool ONE Bus Station available for cheap matchday travel.

Liverpool Lime Street Station is under two miles from Anfield Stadium, making it a popular point on the commute for away fans visiting for the day, as there are trains connecting to Manchester, Doncaster, Birmingham, Nottingham, and many other locations.

There are also Merseyrail services going to Liverpool Moorfields, Southport, and Kirkby, that arrive at Sandhills Station, also around two miles away.

Be aware of unsafe parking options

While seeing pop-up cheap parking may feel like a victory at the time, many of these unofficial car parks can result in fines as you may be parking illegally, and may not be a secure place to leave your vehicle. Avoid these risks by booking a secure space in advance with JustPark, ensuring security and good value; all of our spaces are vetted to ensure your car will be parked legally and safely. Plus, we offer additional insurance to protect drivers going to extremely busy areas where possible damage could occur.
