Getting Around

Our full exhibition programme is now closed, but visitors can still enjoy groundbreaking art in person at FACT and Bluecoat until August & September.

We hope you enjoy your stay in the city as you explore Liverpool Biennial 2021. Here are some of the best ways to see the city.

Please respect COVID–19 safety measures when travelling: 

  • Wear a face covering when using public transport, unless you are medically exempt. Not all exemptions are visible so please be understanding of others
  • Remember to use hand sanitiser and continue to wash your hands regularly
  • Practice social distancing and follow any one-way routes marked

Always travel in-line with UK Government COVID-19 Guidelines. Find the most up-to-date information at GOV.UK.

Walking trails


A great way to experience the Biennial is by following one of our four trails which offer suggested routes to explore this year's edition. Each option groups venues by location to advise on which can be easily visited together, perfect if you’re short on time! They also offer a curatorial insight, referencing specific artworks which respond to, and are linked together, through the three entry points.

Find all four Trails listed on our Biennial Online Portal here.

Getting around by bike


It’s quick and easy to get between our venues by bike, so you’ll be able to pack even more into your day. For more information on cycle parking and routes around town, download or request a copy of Liverpool’s cycle map from www.liverpool.gov.uk/cycling.

Any why not give Liverpool’s cycle hire scheme a try? Sign up and you can collect and drop off a bike from any one of our on-street stations. No booking is needed and it’s self-service – just turn up and go. More information at www.citybikeliverpool.co.uk.

By E-scooter


400 e-scooters are available to hire in the city centre and surrounding areas including Toxteth, Dingle and Kensington, as well as key transport hubs and hospitals. See voiscooters.com to download the app and get started.

Liverpool One Bus Station, Paradise Street


The main bus station is located in the heart of the city, with regular buses connecting the whole Merseyside area, and an information point where you can check travel times and plan your route.

Trains


Travel around the city using the Merseyrail network, with stations throughout the city centre. Each of our Exhibition venues is located within walking distance of a train station.

Regular services to and from Liverpool make it one of the most accessible cities on the UK rail network. Virgin trains operate a London-Liverpool service, with a journey time of just over two hours.

Taxi

Make use of Liverpool’s many Hackney taxis, which you can flag down on street or pre-book with ComCabs on 0151 298 2222. 

By travelling via taxi between venues or around the city, you can choose to experience Erick Beltrán's new commission Superposition (2021). Combining lights and music alongside graphic designs, the commission can be experienced across 5 taxis, while on display across the tip-seats of an additional 30 of the fleet. To make a booking call ComCab Taxis and quote "Liverpool Biennial" (normal phone and taxi rates apply).
