 How many times have Liverpool won the Champions League?
 Liverpool have won the Champions League (formerly the European Cup) a total of six times. This is the highest total of any British club and the third highest in Europe.

A brief overview of Liverpool at Anfield 

Liverpool FC began playing at Anfield in 1892, after rivals Everton upped sticks and moved to Goodison Park. Since then, the famous ground has been redeveloped numerous times, but many of the most iconic features remain. 

Flagpole corner, between the Kop and Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand, is home to the Great Eastern Flagpole. This was taken from the famous steamship to celebrate the opening of the Kop – a stirring tribute to the city’s industrial past.

Other areas of interest in the ground include the beautiful Shankly and Paisley Gates that take you into the stadium. The gates honour:
  • The club’s two legendary managers
  • The statues in tribute to the various Liverpool stars of the past
  • The moving memorial to the 97 victims at Hillsborough.
If you’re a first-time visitor looking to bask in the rich history of Anfield, and one of English football’s greatest institutions, then get there early and take time to explore these iconic spots. Better still, if you’re in the city for more than just matchday, a stadium tour could be the perfect way to immerse yourself in Anfield imagery – from the endless illustrious trophies and images in the museum to the iconic ‘This is Anfield’ sign en route to the pitch.
 Who is Liverpool’s highest ever goalscorer?
 Ian Rush is Liverpool’s record goalscorer. The Welsh striker scored a total of 346 goals over two spells between 1980 and 1996.

A breakdown of Anfield's seating plan

Anfield Road End



Facing north-east, the Anfield Road End is a two-tier stand, which seats 9,500 fans. 

Back in Anfield’s early years, this end was merely a row of uncovered steps. But this all changed in 1903, when it was re-developed into a proper stand built with timber and corrugated iron. Since then, it’s been rebuilt and re-imagined numerous times. During Liverpool’s golden age in the 1980s, Anfield Road End even had multi-coloured seats; a move instigated by legendary manager Bob Paisley to make the red shirts of the Liverpool players stand out against the backdrop.

In 2021, the club began re-modelling the end once again. The entire upper half was expanded, increasing Anfield’s capacity by a further 7,000. The re-development of the Anfield Road End makes Liverpool’s home one of the best stadiums in the Premier League, and revolutionises the end’s concourse and hospitality facilities. 

In regards to the matchday experience, it’s worth remembering that half of the stand is allocated to the away supporters. This can make the atmosphere in the Anfield Road End rather subdued as the chants of the travelling masses will drown out the vocal support coming from the Kop. 

That said, an afternoon in the Anfield Road End can still be a joyous experience should the Reds take the lead – something that always silences the boisterous away fans.

Another advantage of sitting in the Anfield Road End is that you get a perfect view of the Kop, directly opposite. It’s advisable to get there early before kick-off as that way you’ll get to see the illustrious home end slowly fill and hear the old songs start to emanate from one of football’s most famous stands.

The Anfield Road End is also the site of the family zone. The area is full of interactive activities to keep all of the family entertained. Kids can take part in quizzes, have their faces painted and have their pictures taken against a 120-metre mural that is full of facts and images all about the mighty Reds.

Where to sit in the Anfield Road End

Best seats in the Anfield Road End

The best seats in a football stadium are somewhat up for debate and opinion.

In the Anfield Road End, your best bet is to go near the middle of the lower tier and near the front of the upper tier. If you’re choosing seats in blocks 125-126, look for seats that are 15 to 25 rows back. Being a little bit further back from the front row will give you a better angle for following the action.
 
If you’re in the upper section, the rule is: “the closer to the front you are, the better”. In fact, the front of the upper tier has some of the best views on the entire Anfield seating plan. 

Seats to avoid in the Anfield Road End

The worst seats on the Anfield seating plan can be found in some areas of the Anfield Road End. 

The seats at the back of the lower tier of the stand are the seats to avoid due to the overhang from the upper tier, which obscures most of your view. You can still see some of the pitch, but should the ball go in the air, you’ll have no idea of what’s going on. Sitting in these seats is akin to watching a match through a letter box, and the seats in the back corner of the stand are not much better.

The seats at the front are better. Although you’ll get a good view of the pitch and the rest of the ground, due to the low perspective, you’ll have a hard time getting a feel of how the match is playing out tactically. It’s almost impossible to tell which players are in space, what pass they should play, or even what formation the team is playing. If you’re the sort of person who likes to analyse a game while you’re watching to get a better idea of which team is on top, it’s perhaps best to sit somewhere else. 

That said, there is no greater thrill in a football ground than sitting right behind the goal and seeing Darwin Nunez hammer home a screamer or witness Mo Salah break yet another goal-scoring record.

In the upper tier, it’s advisable not to sit too far back. The seats don’t offer a bad view, but you will feel quite distant from the action. The view from the seats right at the back is also quite obscured.

The Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand

The Kenny Dalglish Stand has seemingly had more names than Everton has had managers. 



Some key points in its development include the following: 
  • For decades it was known as the Kemlyn Road Stand, something that some of the older spectators still call it today. 
  • The stand underwent significant re-development in 1992 when a second tier, along with executive boxes, were added. It was, at that time, re-named the Centenary Stand.
  • In 2017, the stand was re-branded once again. It became named after former Liverpool manager, player, and multiple European Cup winner, Sir Kenny Dalglish. It houses 11,762 supporters, with 4,600 fans in the upper tier and 6,814 fans in the lower tier. There are also 348 executive boxes which do give some sections of the stand a very corporate feel.
The Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand has an older demographic than the other three stands. Perfect if you like the idea of hearing stories from the days of yore when the likes of Ian St. John, Kevin Keegan, and King Kenny himself graced the Anfield turf. Less so if you want to feel the cut and thrust of the raucous Anfield atmosphere. 

The fans in The Sir Kenny Dalglish stand are less interested in joining in with Si Senor or winding up the away end, but would rather just sit back and focus on the action.
 Top Tip: The Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand is certainly a good option if you are travelling with younger fans, who might feel a little intimidated by the livelier sections of the ground. 

Where to sit in the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand

Best seats in the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand

The best blocks to sit in the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand are those in and around the halfway line. These offer similar views to the ones you would get watching on television. The blocks with particularly good views are KK, KL, CE5, CE6, and CE4.

Seats to avoid in the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand

The view from the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand is largely very good. Even the worst seats in the stand still offer a satisfactory view of the pitch. That said, if you’re a real stickler for good seats, those at the edges of the stand are the ones to steer clear of. The view itself isn’t bad, but it’s an unusual angle to watch a football match from as you’re not quite side-on and not quite front-on.

Another thing to note about the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand is that supporters are quite tightly packed in this section of the ground. If you’re prone to claustrophobia, you may find the seats in the Sir Kenny Stand a little cramped.

Facts about Sir Kenny Dalglish

The Main Stand

Construction first began on the Main Stand in 1895, just three years after Liverpool Football Club was founded. 

Over the years, the Main Stand has had many different designs. Throughout most of the swashbuckling Bill Shankly era, the stand had a glorious mock Tudor arch gable, which bore the words ‘Liverpool Football Club’. However, this was demolished in 1973 to make way for a more modern design.



That version of the Main Stand, complete with two supporting beams in the middle, stood for over four decades–bearing witness to everything from Joe Fagan’s historic treble in the ‘80s to Rafa Benitez’s glorious revival in the ‘00s. 

By 2014, demand for Liverpool tickets was at an all-time high, and the Main Stand increasingly resembled a relic from yesteryear. As a result, the entire stand was rebuilt once more, and this time capacity increased by a further 8,000.

As of 2023, the Main Stand holds 20,672 spectators and is categorised into the following:
  • 9,300 in the Lower Tier
  • 3,100 in the Middle Tier
  • 7,900 in the Upper Tier. 
Alongside this, the Main Stand also has an extensive hospitality section. For example, the Anfield Beat Lounge is a lively sports bar that celebrates the club’s deep connection with the local music scene, whilst the Anfield Code Lounge is a great space to hang out before kick-off.
In terms of the atmosphere, the Main Stand is rowdier than the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand, but is still somewhat quieter than the Kop.

Where to sit in the Main Stand

Best seats in the Main Stand

Similar to the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand, the more central your seats are, the better. The blocks we’d recommend are L5, L6, or M5.

One of the highlights of L5 and L6 is not just that you get a stunning perspective on the game, but you’re also right up close to the dugout. You’ll be able to hear the manager’s shouts from the touchline and get to see which players are raring to come on. 

Whether it’s the intense volume of Jurgen Klopp’s tactical instructions or the exciting prospect of Cody Gakpo warming up to change the game, seats in this area will put you one step ahead of most fans in the ground. 

Seats to avoid in the Main Stand

Given that the Main Stand was re-developed as recently as 2016, it should come as no surprise that there are very few restricted view seats. The Main Stand used to be the worst part of the ground for restricted-view seating; however, that problem is now non-existent. 

It’s only at the far ends of the stand where there are restricted-view seats. The spot at the back and far edge of U1 and U9 are partly obscured by the roof of the stand, as well as the top of the Kop or Anfield Road End, depending on what end you are sitting at. At the very back of the top tier of the Main Stand, the roof overhangs slightly, meaning your view is partially obscured.

If you are on the left side of the Main Stand, you will be near the fans in the away end. This means you will have to deal with being heckled at by the travelling supporters and hear their songs rather than those of the Kop. 

Another problem with the Main Stand is if you’re sitting right at the front, you will have your view impeded by the substitutes who are warming up. 

The Kop

The Spion Kop, to give its full name, has been the go-to stand for the most fervent Liverpool supporter since it was first built in 1906. It’s here where the incomparable atmosphere on European nights and the pulsating pre-game rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone can be most felt.

Built as a reward for the support of the Liverpool fans in the previous year’s championship-winning season, it started life as merely 10 concrete steps. This remained the case up until 1928 when a roof was attached, and capacity surged to 25,000 supporters.



All standing back then, the Kop roared the Reds to several memorable victories, including famed comeback victories in Europe against the powerhouses of Saint-Etienne and Club Brugge.

Based on findings from the Taylor Report in 1994, the Kop was sadly demolished to make way for seating. Fortunately, any fears that the old stand would lose its character following the re-development were quickly availed. The new Kop was carefully designed to retain the feel of the old, being a steep, one-tiered stand with acoustics designed so that the noise from the fans would be felt on the pitch. As evidenced numerous times on crunch European nights, or fixtures against arch-rivals, the Kop can generate thunderous roars as loud as they were before.

The stand has a capacity of 12,850; there are no corporate seats. This part of the ground is for passionate fans only. The Kop is the place to sit (or more likely stand) if you want to feel the true power of the Anfield atmosphere. But remember, you will be expected to sing and cajole the Reds players throughout. Therefore, if you don’t know all the words to ‘poor scouser Tommy’, it’s best to brush up on them before you take your seat. 

Where to Sit in the Kop 

Best seats in the Kop

For the best strike pairing of great views and being immersed in the atmosphere, the spots to aim for are in blocks 204-206. In this part of the stand, you’ll be right in the centre of all the pre-match rituals, such as holding aloft the banners, waving the flags, as well singing the iconic ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. 

Once the game starts, you’ll be treated to an excellent view of the pitch. Not so close that your view will be impeded by the goalmouth, or that wayward shots will come in your direction, but not so far that it’s hard to feel engaged with the action. 

That said, regardless of where you sit, a trip to the Kop is an experience that you’ll never forget. Everything from the pre-match rituals to the pandemonium when a goal goes in makes a visit to the Kop a must for anyone who considers themselves a Liverpool fanatic.  

Seats to avoid in the Kop

The seats with the most restricted views in the Kop can be found in blocks 108, 208, 102, and 202. This is because the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand and Main Stand jut out, meaning your view of the pitch may be partially obscured by these stands. That said, even though the view will be less than ideal, you’ll still be able to get swept up by the Kop atmosphere and get a real feel for what is happening in the game merely by the mood of the stand.

The seats right at the back of the Kop are also partially obscured. Similar to other stands, the roof hangs over, so that the noise travels forward. But, this does mean that you can’t see the ball when it’s in the air. Not ideal if the opposing centre-half likes to get it launched. 

Liverpool ticket prices

It goes without saying that the price of Liverpool tickets at Anfield vary depending on:
  • What game you’re going to
  • Where you’re sitting within the Anfield seating plan (i.e. which stand and how far forward/back)
  • Who the ticket is being purchased for (i.e. juniors or over 65s).

Anfield arrival information

What you can and can’t bring into Anfield Stadium 

Liverpool FC advises supporters visiting Anfield to arrive well before kick-off, to allow enough time for necessary security checks. 

Liverpool’s Anfield stadium has various restrictions in place, which will limit what items you can and can’t bring into the stadium. 

Items you can and can’t bring into Anfield Stadium include the following:

Accessing your ticket for Anfield

From the start of the 2021-22 season, Liverpool switched to a fully digital ticketing system, meaning fans could no longer print out tickets. Gone are the days of long queues at the ticket office. Instead, the club now makes use of NFC (Near Field Communication) technology for stadium entry.

General admission NFC passes are required for stadium access for non-season ticket holders. You can obtain your NFC pass by logging into your My Liverpool Account. If you haven’t already got one of these, it’s best to sign up before purchasing any tickets for Anfield. Once you’ve obtained your general admission NFC pass, download it to the smartphone that you are taking to the game.

Entry at the turnstile is easy too. Just hold your NFC pass up to the reader, as you would when paying with Apple Pay or other similar applications, and walk through the open turnstile. 

Finding your seat at Anfield stadium 

The Kop, The Anfield Road End, and Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand

Before you even leave your house or hotel, check that you have the right tickets for the right game. You don’t want to make the journey all the way to Anfield just to be turned away at the gate because you accidentally bought the tickets to next week’s match. 

Ideally, you should aim to get to Anfield 45 minutes to an hour before kick-off. This gives you sufficient wiggle room should there be delays. Plus, it gives you enough time to soak up the pre-match atmosphere with a pint or two on the concourse. 

Once you’ve made your way through the security checks, look for the turnstile named on your ticket. This puts you through the entrance that is closest to your seat. 

Once you are at Anfield Stadium, there’ll be signs all around leading you to the right stairway. There are also plenty of stewards who are around to help in case you can’t find your bearings. 

The Main Stand

Getting into the Main Stand is basically the same as getting into the rest of Anfield, but with a few little differences. Fans who have seats in the Upper Main Stand need to make their way through turnstiles S or W, which are close to the Kop Stand and Anfield Road End, respectively. This may seem confusing, especially if your seat is near the middle of the stand. This is designed to prevent the central areas behind the stand from getting too crowded.

If you have seats on the lower level of the stand, you should make your way to turnstile T or V on the podium level. These turnstiles are reachable by three different staircases located at the centre or either end of the podium. 

Disabled access to Anfield stadium 

Liverpool Football Club have various measures to make getting to Anfield as easy as possible for disabled and ambulant supporters. Regardless of what stand your ticket is in, there is always a disability-friendly drop-off point nearby. 

A breakdown of the Anfield stadium plan showing disability access points

Where to go for disability drop-off at Anfield 

On arrival at the drop-off point, there will be a helpful member of the fan support group, who will be able to offer any assistance that you require.

Depending on where you are sitting within the Anfield seating plan will influence the ideal drop-off for disabled access. 


The optimum drop-off points are: 
  • In the Anfield Road End: Arkles Lane.
  • In the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand: Oakfield Road.
  • In the Kop End: Gilman Street.

Accessible entrance points in Anfield 

All around Anfield, there are accessible entrance points. These entrances will get you away from the crowds and give you a stress-free experience as you make your way into the stadium. There are accessible entrances for each stand that are always open on matchday.
  • Anfield Road End: Home fans in the Anfield Road End should enter via accessible entrance 3, which is just by the Shankly Gates.
  • Anfield Road End Away: Travelling supporters should enter through accessible entrance 3a.
  • Main Stand Upper and Lower: Fans should go to the ground-level accessible entrances 4 and 5. These are at the two opposite ends of the stand. There is a dedicated lift, and the matchday team can take you straight to your seat.
  • Main Stand Lower Pitchside: If you have a spot close to the action, you should go through accessible entrance 1. At half-time, an attendant will be on hand to escort you to the concourse at the Kop End for refreshments. Or, you can stay put throughout the break.
  • Kop End: Fans in the Kop End can enter the stadium through accessible entrance 2. Access to your positions is made deliberately level and smooth to ensure easy access.

Anfield match day food and drink facilities 

Food inside Anfield Stadium 



Being one of the country’s leading stadiums, it is no surprise that Anfield is great for food. There are loads of options, including traditional stadium fare and classics with a twist.

The best place to find a tasty bite is by the re-developed Main Stand. There are plenty of food stalls, so there is certainly going to be something that takes your fancy, including: 
  • Throughout the Main Stand and the Kop, you’ll be able to find a ton of old-school food options, including rollover hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, sausage rolls, and fries. 
  • For something you might not expect at a football ground, there is a pizza kiosk at the Main Stand. The Taste Pizza kiosk serves up fresh mozzarella and pepperoni pizzas to order, as well as offering a roasted Mediterranean vegetable option for vegetarians.
  • In and around this row of kiosks, you’ll also find a fresh chicken kiosk, which serves buttermilk fried chicken, salt and pepper chicken, as well as tandoori chicken.
  • Nachos with sour cream and guacamole can also be found around the Main Stand, ideal if you want a bite to share.

Within the concourse, Anfield has an impressive array of beverages. Of course, there are the usual soft drinks, teas, and coffees, but you can also purchase unique beers and ciders to drink before you take your seat or at half-time. 

In recent years, Liverpool FC has made an effort to make their food options more inclusive. For the start of the 2021-22 season, the club gave their classic steak pie a meat-free makeover. Partnering with Quorn, the club developed a tasty alternative that replicates the taste and texture of the matchday staple, except made with juicy vegan chunks and a non-meat gravy.

Anfield also has its own halal kiosk, which can be found by the Family Park L4 kiosk. 

Prices within the stadium

Football stadiums often have a bad reputation for changing extortionate prices for the most ordinary of pies and pints. Yet, Anfield prices are actually rather reasonable. 
 
Pint Soft drink Water Tea Coffee Wine Crisps Pie
£3.75 £2.50 £2 £2.50 £2.50 £5 £2.50 £3.50

A pint on the Kop costs just £3.75. At only two grounds in the Premier League, will you find a cheaper pint of beer. 

A pie at Anfield is also remarkably cheap. Your standard pie costs just £3.50 (impressive considering a pie at West Ham’s London Stadium comes in at £5.50). Overall, Anfield has the second cheapest pies in the Premier League, a stat that the likes of Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley would be proud of considering their socialist ideals.

In regards to other prices: 
  • Water costs £2
  • Teas, coffees, crisps, and soft drinks all come in at £2.50
  • A glass of wine will set you back £5. 

Best places for drinks outside Anfield Stadium


 The Sandon, L5 1AE 

The birthplace of Liverpool FC is a must-visit for any fan on a pilgrimage to Anfield. Dating back to the 1870s, it was in this very pub where Liverpool Football Club was founded after Everton moved to Goodison Park. The world-famous pub has nine function rooms and is just a two-minute walk from the ground. Shortlisted for the best local and best sports venue in the Great British Pub Awards in 2019, The Sandon even has a Steven Gerrard mural painted on the side. So, if you want to raise a glass to John Houlding, the founding father of Liverpool Football Club, then this is the place to go.

 Taggy’s, L4 OTE

Situated on Anfield Road, Taggy’s has become an increasingly popular pre-match pit-stop, particularly for younger fans. The pub’s bar is like a Liverpool FC museum that can serve you a pint or two before the match. Also within Taggy’s is an old display turnstile from the Main Stand and an original banner from the Kop. Plus, the pub has a 250-seat beer garden and a good size football pitch for kids.

 The Church, L4 OUF

A converted church, this is another great venue which is just a short walk from the ground. The Church is perfect if you fancy a pint and a substantial meal before kick-off. 

 The Albert, L4 ORE

Arguably the most well-known pub in the area, The Albert is right next to the Kop. Of all the pubs in the local area, it’s the closest to the ground. With a very busy, raucous atmosphere on matchday, this is a great place to warm up the vocal cords before making your way to the ground. If you want to drink in more than just the atmosphere, and would like a pint or two, we recommend getting there very early as the Albert has a reputation for filling up quickly. 

 The Park, L4 ORQ

Opposite to The Albert is The Park – a smaller venue which nonetheless generates a tremendous atmosphere. Expect to be packed in and aware that catching the eye of the bar staff is a harder task than dribbling past Virgil van Dijk. That said, for a boss atmosphere, The Park is one of the best pubs around Anfield.

 The Arkles, L4 OTJ

Away fans' pub, so best avoided. The Arkles could be fun if you fancy some pre-match banter before the game, just don’t get too lairy.

 The Twelfth Man, L4 ORD

If you want a pre-match pint in a more relaxed, easy-going atmosphere, then consider The Twelfth Man. Despite being just four minutes away from Liverpool’s stadium, The Twelfth Man doesn’t get as busy as other pubs, meaning that it’s much easier to get served. The pub has an older crowd in comparison to the ones nearer Anfield.

Best places for food outside Anfield Stadium

There are plenty of great places to eat around Anfield. Whether you’re after a pre-match snack to get you warmed up or need something more hefty after an exhausting 90 minutes, Anfield’s various cafes have got you covered.

 Homebaked

Every true red knows about Homebaked. The most popular and revered place for a pre-match pie, 197-199 Oakfield Road has been a bakery in various forms for over 100 years. Like the mighty Reds over the years, Homebaked has earned its fair share of silverware, including a gold award in the 2020 British Pie Awards. One of the reasons why it’s so loved by Liverpool fans is that it’s the only bakery in the world that serves the Shankly Pie. Given permission by the family of the great Liverpool gaffer, the Shankly pie contains steak, bacon, mushroom, onion, leek, celery, and gravy. 

 Georgie Porgy Cafe

Fancy a proper full English breakfast with all the works? Well, look no further than Georgie Porgy Cafe on Walton Breck Road. On top of the all-day breakfasts, the Georgie Porgy also serves up hot jacket potatoes, wraps, pies, and chips. Plus, if you’re parched but not ready for anything alcoholic, then pop in for one of their home-style cuppas.

 The Anfield Cafe

Another classic greasy spoon that specialises in full-English breakfasts. Just 0.1 miles from the stadium, the Anfield Cafe is perfect if you’re running slightly late and need a quick bite to eat. Has great friendly service, with reasonable prices. Also serves up burgers and baguettes.

 Sing Fong

Just behind the Kop end, you’ll find Sing Fong, a takeaway that combines the best of English and Chinese cuisine. Sing Fong is the perfect place if you want salty chips with a rich spicy curry sauce. Don’t be put off by the long queues as the Sing Fong staff are used to it. Generally, you won’t have to wait long for your food regardless of how busy it is. Whether you’re after five spring rolls as a pre-match snack or want to pick up a family-size Chinese supper after the match then, Sing Fong is the place to go.

 Go Taco

If you are in the mood for Mexican food, then Go Taco. Quesadillas, nachos, tacos, burgers, even noodles – Go Taco do them all. On match days, Go Taco offers a weekend bundle, which is ideal if you need to feed the whole family. Located on Cavendish Street, it’s just a four-minute walk from Anfield.

 Uncle Paulie’s Pizza

Fast food is Uncle Paulie’s game. Apart from offering loads of different pizzas, including pepperoni, spicy beef and even the dreaded ham and pineapple, Uncle Paulie’s also serves up doner kebabs, burgers, and garlic bread. Sitting on Oakfield Road, Uncle Paulie’s is just a five-minute walk from Anfield.

Visiting Liverpool Stadium


Liverpool’s stadium is located in a suburb of Merseyside called Anfield. On non-match days, it’s no different to any other housing suburb in the North of England. There are shops, cafes, and schools. But it’s only on the 25 days (or so) a year when the Reds are playing at home that this borough becomes a beacon for supporters travelling from all four corners of the globe. 

Anfield is just 2.4 miles from Liverpool City Centre, and there are various ways of making it to the ground. The local council have put in place various methods of public transportation to ensure that getting to Liverpool’s stadium is easy, regardless of whether you’ve never been to Merseyside or never left.

Getting to Anfield by train

Travelling to Liverpool by train

Liverpool Lime Street is Liverpool’s main station for regional and national journeys. Almost all lines lead to the station, which can take supporters straight to the city centre. The distance from Liverpool Lime Street to Anfield is around 2.5 miles, with trains typically taking between 20 and 25 minutes.

With 10 platforms, it is one of the largest train stations in the UK outside of London. On a typical weekend, there will be two trains per hour running from London St. Pancras to Liverpool Lime Street; the same is true of Birmingham New Street, whilst there are three trains per hour running from Manchester Piccadilly.

Travelling in and around Liverpool by train

The only way to get around Liverpool via train is the Merseyrail network. Not dissimilar from London’s underground network, although on a much smaller scale, Merseyrail has two lines: the Northern Line and the Wirral Line. 

Merseyrail Map



Although run by another operating company, the City Line is effectively part of the extended Merseyrail network. The nearest Merseyrail stations to Anfield are Sandhills and Kirkdale, which are a 30-minute walk to the ground. 

If you are travelling from south or east of the River Mersey, you should get the Wirral Line which goes directly to Liverpool Central. There you can then change to the Northern Line or get a taxi or bus to the ground. 

Supporters travelling from the north of the city should hop onto the Northern Line and get off at either Kirkdale or Sandhills. 

For fans in the southwest of the city who wish to travel by train, the best line to get is the City Line. This connects much of the north-west of England, meaning that if you are travelling from Warrington, Preston or even Manchester, you can catch one of these trains and will be whisked straight to the city centre.

Merseyrail Soccerbus

To make getting to Anfield even easier, Merseyrail run the Soccerbus, which is a shuttle bus which runs from their stations prior to kick-off. The Soccerbus runs for three hours before kick-off, ferrying passengers from Sandhill Station straight to Anfield. The last bus runs 15 minutes before kick-off. Return buses after the game run for up to 90 minutes after the final whistle.



In terms of prices, the Soccerbus costs just £1.60 for a return if you book in advance. Or you can buy your ticket as you board for a mere £1.90.

Getting to Anfield by bus



If you’re not keen on getting the train, there are plenty of buses available that can take you directly to the ground. 

Bus 917 

If you’re coming from the City Centre, the best bus to get is the 917 from Commutation Row. Commutation Row is right in the heart of the city and is just a three-minute walk away from Liverpool Lime Street. It shouldn’t be hard to find as there is normally a queue on Sleeper’s Hill.  
The first bus departs Commutation Row three and a half hours before kick-off, with the last bus getting to Anfield a matter of minutes before the game begins. The bus goes straight to Liverpool’s stadium with no stops in between. A one-way ticket on the 917 costs £2.30 for a single journey or £4.60 for a return.

Bus 26

From Liverpool City Centre you can take the 26 bus from Liverpool ONE bus station. On matchdays in the lead-up to kick-off, there are four buses an hour making the journey to Anfield.

There are also plenty of bus routes which take you near to the ground if not right outside. 

Bus 14 or 19

If the queue for the 26 or 917 looks too long, you can always try the 14 or 19 from Queens Square, which stops just a short walk from the ground.

Bus 68 and 168

Want to avoid going into the hustle and bustle of the city centre? The 68 and 168 runs between Bootle and Aigburth, and can take you to within a brisk walk to the ground.

Parking near Anfield Stadium 

Like many stadiums across the UK, parking near Anfield on matchday can be a nightmare. It has to be remembered that when Liverpool first started playing at Anfield in 1893, cars were a luxury item. The surrounding area was never designed for such an influx of traffic, and given that the ground sits in the middle of a housing suburb, there is no room for a supersized car park.

Therefore, the club states that there is very little parking in and around the ground. They firmly advise getting public transport to Anfield for games as opposed to trying to find a parking space near the ground. If you’ve travelled to Merseyside by car, it’s best to park in the city or at a hotel rather than driving all the way to the ground. 



In the area surrounding the stadium, there is a resident car parking scheme. This means that just because a space may appear, it may be reserved by a local resident, meaning that you will receive a substantial fine if you park there. Wardens are always in operation around Liverpool’s stadium on matchday, and parking tickets are regularly dished out to people who disobey the rules.

If you are really intent on avoiding public transport, there are a few options that will take you within a 15-20 minute walk from the stadium. Nearby secondary school North Liverpool Academy open their car park for match goers. It costs £8 for the day and is just a 15-minute walk away from Anfield. Safe and secure, there is no risk of incurring a hefty fine. 

Some Liverpool fans make the audacious decision to park in the Everton club shop car park. Now, whether you view this as an act of treachery is up to you, but in defence of these supporters, it is only £5 and just a 10-minute walk. A word of warning though, the money you spend will contribute to the toffee’s summer transfer budget. 

Accessible car parking near Anfield Stadium 

Despite the club reiterating that supporters should travel by public transport to Anfield for games, it does have a special dispensation for disabled fans. Accessible parking within the ground is available for fans who are registered as a disabled supporter with the club.

Passes for the car park are available upon request at the time of purchasing your tickets. Demand for these spaces is very high, so you have to reserve a space well in advance of the fixture. When you register your interest in a parking bay, you will be placed into a ballot, and you will be contacted two weeks before the game as to whether you have been successful.

If you don’t get a space, then there is no need to fear. There are plenty of official drop-off points designated for fans with accessibility issues. Stewards will be on hand to assist you with any problems should you need help getting into the stadium through one of the disability entrances or would just like someone to keep you company while you wait.

Accommodation near Anfield Stadium 

Liverpool’s hotels are beloved by tourists and business owners. So whether you are after a homely BnB which serves up a classic English breakfast, or a swanky hotel in the heart of the city which is surrounded by lively bars, Liverpool has tonnes to choose from.

Statistics about Anfield Stadium

Anfield Stadium attendance figures

Liverpool have had their fair share of peaks and troughs over the years, from relegations to the Second Division to Champions League triumphs. Therefore, it is no surprise that the number of fans packing into stands has fluctuated over the years. 

A breakdown of yearly Anfield Stadium attendance figures, 1948-2023



For a long time, the late 1960s and early 1970s brought the highest attendance figures. Fans went to Anfield in their droves as Liverpool began to compete for major honours. This was the peak until the Main Stand was redeveloped, and Anfield’s capacity surged up to 54,000. As the Klopp revolution began, the number of fans making the journey to Anfield crept above one million once again.

A breakdown of average weekly Anfield Stadium attendance, 1948-2023



This graph charts the average weekly attendance at Anfield since 1948. Liverpool have had various peaks and dips in performance, and their average attendance reflects this. 

Liverpool were league champions in 1947; however, the decade was a difficult one for the club as it was relegated in 1954. Attendances naturally plummeted, dipping to below 34,000. 

The arrival of Bill Shankly changed this, and by the end of the 1960s, Anfield was enjoying its best-ever attendance figures. Despite the club’s ongoing success, Anfield’s attendance started to go into decline as the popularity of football itself dwindled. Redevelopments to the ground to make it safer meant that stadium capacity was capped at below 50,000 fans throughout the 1990s and 2000s. 

However, when the Main Stand was redeveloped, Liverpool experienced a boom in attendance, and the seasons prior to COVID saw the Reds earn their best-ever average weekly figures.

Liverpool’s Premier League performance between 1992-2022

After their dominant spell in the 1970s and 1980s, which saw the Reds pick up 11 First Division titles, upon the creation of the Premier League, Liverpool fell into a rut. Under the management of former captain Graeme Souness, the club stagnated, finishing sixth and eighth in the first two seasons. To make matters worse, arch-rivals Manchester United entered a dominant spell under Sir Alex Ferguson when the Red Devils ended their 31-year wait for a league title.

Liverpool were considered more of a cup team throughout the 1990s and, despite having talented players such as Robbie Fowler, Jamie Redknapp and Steve McManaman at their disposal, they never truly challenged for the title. It took until the 2001-02 season for the Anfield side to even finish in the top two! Even a cup treble couldn’t hide the fact that Liverpool were lagging behind both Manchester United and Arsenal.
 
Team 1992/93 1993/94 1994/95 1995/96 1996/97 1997/98 1998/99 1999/00 2000/01 2001/02
Liverpool 6 8 4 3 4 3 7 4 3 2
Everton 13 17 15 6 15 17 14 13 16 15
Manchester United 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 1 3

The appointment of Rafa Benitez in 2004 improved Liverpool’s fortunes. Benitez had just won the league title with Valencia when he arrived at Anfield, and although his first season saw Liverpool finish in an unremarkable fifth place, it does come with the not-so-insignificant caveat that the Reds lifted the Champions League in Istanbul that season. Two third-place finishes and one fourth-place finish followed before Liverpool put up a genuine title charge in 2008-09. Spearheaded by Fernando Torres, Liverpool finished just four points behind Manchester United and lost just two matches all season.

The season that followed was a disappointing one as Liverpool slipped to seventh in the league. The departure of Benitez did little to improve their fortunes as they spent three more seasons finishing outside the top four. 

Liverpool were seemingly on a path to nowhere until it all changed in the 2013-14 season. It appeared to be Brendan Rodgers’ destiny that he would be the man to end Liverpool’s 24-year wait for a league title - that was until Steven Gerrard’s infamous slip handed Man City the title…

The season after, Rodgers’ tenure fizzled out, with the club finishing in sixth. He was sacked the following season.
 
Team 2002/03 2003/04 2004/05 2005/06 2006/07 2007/08 2008/09 2009/10 2010/11 2011/12 2012/13
Liverpool 5 4 5 3 3 4 2 7 6 8 7
Everton 7 17 4 11 6 5 5 8 7 7 6
Manchester United 1 3 3 2 1 1 1 2 1 2 1

And then it was Jurgen Klopp, the man who finally brought the Premier League trophy back to Anfield. It took a few seasons, with the club often more preoccupied with European runs. In his first full season in charge, Liverpool broke back into the top four. By 2018-19 they were running City close to the title, only missing out on the honour on the final day of the season. 

They were to leave nothing to chance in the 2019-20 season. Liverpool amassed an incredible 99 points as they sauntered to the title with seven matches to spare. 

Liverpool had a bit of a title hangover the season after, scraping the top four on the final day of the season. In the 2021-22, they were challenging once again, yet fell short to Manchester City by just one point.

Where does Liverpool’s average finish rank among other top 10 teams

Since the Premier League began, Liverpool’s average position at the end of the season has been a respectable 4.3 out of 20. This suggests that the majority of the time, they finish in the top four, but with some exceptions. This gives Liverpool FC the third-best average finish of all clubs that have competed in the Premier League. 
 
Position Average finish Team
1st 2.4 Manchester United
2nd 4.1 Arsenal
3rd 4.3 Liverpool
4th 4.6 Chelsea
5th 7.4 Manchester City
6th 7.5 Tottenham Hotspur
7th 9.4 Leeds United
8th 10 Blackburn Rovers
9th 10.1 Newcastle United
10th 10.4 Everton

By comparison, the club with the best average finish is Manchester United which is no surprise considering the number of titles they won in the Premier League’s early years.

Arsenal may have only won three league titles since 1992, yet their average position is 4.1. This is largely because of the stability they enjoyed under Arsene Wenger who, in 22 seasons at the club, only finished outside the top four twice. 

Despite Manchester City’s recent dominance, they have an average finish of 7.4. Prior to 2009, Manchester City were a mid-table club that had never finished higher than eighth.
