How To Get To Goodison Park

There are many way to get to Everton’s Goodison Park stadium. Via car is always a popular option with many car parks and parking spaces close to the stadium.

Train is another option with the only down side being the walk to and from the station especially if travelling with elderly relatives.

The Bus services to Goodison Park are really frequent although don’t rely on this if you are making a rail connection etc after the match just in case they have missed a bus out which has been known.

The nearest Merseyrail local train station to Everton’s ground is Kirkdale which is pictured above.

By Train

 The closest Merseyrail train station to Everton’s Goodison Park stadium is Kirkdale station on the Northern Line, which is approximately 1 mile from Goodison Park.
The closest mainline train station is Liverpool Lime Street which operates train services to many parts of the country. There is also a Merseyrail station at Liverpool Lime Street with trains to Kirkdale operating on the Northern Line.

Soccerbus is a frequent shuttle bus service running directly between Sandhills station and Goodison Park, for all Everton home Premier League and cup matches.

If you’re travelling in by train, ask for a ticket to ‘Goodison Park’ and for an add-on of just £1 you’ll get a return trip on the Soccerbus. You can also pay as you board the bus – it’s just £1.50 for a single or return ticket and it’s FREE to those with valid Trio, Solo or Saveaway tickets or a Concessionary Travel Pass.

The Soccerbus service runs for two hours before each Everton match up to 15 minutes before kick off and for 50 minutes after the final whistle.

By Bus

 There are regular bus services operating from the city centre of Liverpool.

The number 19 bus will take you to right outside Goodison Park via the streets of Anfield.

The number 20 and 21 buses will take you in my opinion slightly more direct to the stadium however you will have to get off the bus on County Road where it will take you around a minute to walk up one of the many side streets to the stadium.

  • Services from Queen Square Bus Station in Liverpool city centre - 19/19A, 20, 21, 130*, 210*, 250*
  • Services from Paradise Street Interchange - 19/19A, 20, 21, 130*
  • Services from Thomas Street Stand EA - 350/351, 311, 210*, 250*

Other services which don't operate via the City Centre but serve Goodison Park include- 68/168 (Bootle - Aigburth Vale) and 62/162 (Crosby/Bootle - Penny Lane)

* - service operates evenings and Sundays only
