Everton

UK travel information

Everton are a Liverpool-based football team and, in fact, started off playing their matches at Anfield (until a dispute over rent in 1892 meant they had to play elsewhere). Even now, Goodison Park is less than a mile away from Liverpool’s Anfield stadium.  

Everton have set many records over the years. Goodison, or "The Grand Old Lady" as Everton fans call it, has hosted more top-flight games than any other stadium in England. Dixie Dean scored 60 goals in the 1927-28 season, a record that still stands. Everton’s most successful period was in the 1980s when, under Howard Kendall, they won an FA Cup, two League titles and the European Cup Winners’ Cup. In recent years, with David Moyes as manager, Everton have finished just outside of the top four on several occasions.

Everton



Goodison Park is an old stadium (it was the first major football stadium to be built in England) and is situated among the side streets of Liverpool L4. Since 1996,  Everton have wanted to build a new stadium, but at the time of writing, discussions with the council are still underway. 

Everton run stadium tours that last 1 ¼ hours and are run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11am and 1pm and on Sundays at 11am. If you are planning to combine your tour with a match, be aware that there are no stadium tours on match days or the afternoon preceding them.  Everton’s megastore is on the corner of Walton Road and Goodison Road and is open between 9am and 5pm (Mon – Sat). 

Getting to Goodison Park:

BY ROAD - If arriving from either the North or South, exit the M6 at J26 and follow M58 to its end.

  • At the gyratory system, turn left onto the M57 (J7).
  • Leave the M57 at J4, turning right onto the A580.
  • Continue on the A580 across Queens Drive, entering Walton Lane. Goodison Road is on the right in less than a mile.

BY RAIL

The closest railway station to Goodison Park is Kirkdale which you can get to via Liverpool Central station. After leaving the station, turn right and cross the railway bridge. Follow Westminster Road and turn left into Goodall Street, at the Elm Tree pub. At the end of the street cross the junction into Harlech Street and follow it as far as County Road. Cross County Road at the traffic lights into Andrew Street (the stadium will be visible from the top of this road). 

BY AIR

Goodison Park’s nearest airport is Liverpool John Lennon airport (around 10 miles away). The 80A and 86A buses run from the airport to Liverpool South Parkway bus/rail interchange, where there are connections to Goodison.  

Like many Premier League teams, Everton are looking to move from their present home – a home that they’ve enjoyed since the 19th Century. When the day comes for a move elsewhere, the “Grand Old Lady” of Liverpool will be no longer possible to visit. For any Everton fan, Goodison Park is well worth a visit, whether for a match or to tour.
