Why rent a car in Liverpool?

Liverpool is a great place to explore by car. Cozy, but sizeable, and with plenty of landmarks in all parts of the city, it has everything from old neighborhoods and interesting architecture to modern museums and, of course, the Beatles’ heritage. From Liverpool, it’s easy to explore the rest of England as well as Wales and Scotland. 

Top ways to enter Liverpool

  • Liverpool John Lennon Airport: Although not the largest airport in the United Kingdom (or even the region) by any means, Liverpool Airport still handled more than 5 million travelers in 2018. Served by seven different airlines, most of which are low-cost companies, the airport hosts flights to and from destinations across the U.K. and the rest of Europe as well as some in North Africa. Located about 15km (9.3 miles) south of the city center, the airport can be reached in 20 to 30 minutes depending on the traffic.
  • Manchester Airport: The busiest airport in the United Kingdom outside London, Manchester Airport hosts flights to and from countless destinations on all continents. Located just 56km (35 miles) east of Liverpool, the airport can be reached in about 50 minutes, so flying to Manchester is a great alternative if your home airport doesn’t have a direct connection to Liverpool.
  • Leeds Bradford Airport: Serving a number of cities in Yorkshire, Leeds-Bradford handles about 4 million travelers every year. The airport is served by 10 different airlines and is a focus city for Jet2.com as well as Ryanair. Located 120km (75 miles) northeast of Liverpool, the airport can be reached in just under two hours.
  • East Midlands Airport: Another regional airport popular with a number of low-cost airlines, East Midlands hosts flights to many beach resort destinations in Southern Europe and North Africa but also to and from cities like Berlin, Amsterdam, Budapest, and Warsaw. The airport is located 166km (103 miles) southeast of Liverpool and it takes about two hours to travel by car between the two.
  • By train: If arriving in Liverpool by train, you can conveniently pick up your rental car at Liverpool Central Station, Liverpool James Street Station, and Liverpool Lime Street Station.
  • By ferry: If arriving in Liverpool by ferry, you can pick up your rental car at Liverpool Port. There are frequent ferries to destinations like Dublin, Belfast and the Isle of Man. 

Useful city facts

  • Like the rest of Britain, Liverpool has a temperate maritime climate with mild summers, cool winters, and little temperature changes between seasons. The average temperature is 17°C  (62°F) in July and August, the warmest months, and 5°C  (41°F) in January and February. Liverpool experiences at least some snowfall every year. October and November are the months with the most precipitation while July is the driest.
  • Liverpool is home to the oldest Chinatown in Europe. Located just south of the city center, it dates back to the early and mid-19th century when many immigrants arrived in Liverpool from China by sea, first as silk merchants and later as workers. The neighborhood retains its unique character in its architecture, cuisine, and even its street signs which are written in both English and Chinese. The dialects of Mandarin, Cantonese, and Wu can be frequently heard in the area. The connection with China was strengthened even further in 2000 when Liverpool became sister cities with Shanghai.
  • Liverpool is a very important center for football (or soccer). Liverpool FC, the city’s most successful team, are the current champions of Europe. They play their home games at Anfield, one of Europe’s great old stadiums. It is often said that “you’ll never walk alone”, the club’s anthem sung by the team’s fans during every home much, is the city’s most famous song that’s not written by The Beatles. The main rivals of Liverpool FC are Everton FC whose home ground is Goodison Park. Mainly supported by the city’s working class population, Everton is often said to be even more popular in the city than Liverpool FC. The game between the two is called the Merseyside Derby and is often said to be the most famous match-up in England. Even if you don’t manage to visit on the day of the derby, going to see either of the teams play against any opponent is a true Liverpool experience.

Top destinations and activities

  • Royal Liver Building. Built more than 100 years ago, Royal Liver remains the most impressive building in the city. Nearly 100 meters (325 ft) tall, the building is topped by a pair of clock towers that are larger than the famous Great Westminster Clock in London. Originally called George Clocks since they were started at the moment King George V was coronated, they are now illuminated every night. 
  • Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City. Made up of six areas in the city center, Maritime Mercantile City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that celebrates Liverpool’s seafaring and trading history and present. The most famous area is Pier Head where the Royal Liver Building and other landmarks such as the Cunard Building and the Museum of Liverpool are located. But you should also check out the Albert Dock made up of picturesque harbour buildings and the Stanley Dock Conservation Area that is famous for the Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse, one of the largest brick buildings in the world. 
  • St. George’s Hall. Located opposite Lime Street Station, this neoclassical building is another important symbol of Liverpool. Built in the mid-19th century as a venue for concerts and festivals, it is famous for St. George’s organ which is still in use to this day. 

Traffic and parking tips

  • The United Kingdom drives on the left-hand side of the road.
  • On-street parking is usually heavily restricted. Never park on a white, double yellow or double red line (stopping on motorways and next to red lines is illegal).
  • You are not allowed to use your mobile phone while driving unless you use a hands-free system.
  • Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 112km/h (70 mph) on motorways, 112km/h (70 mph) on dual carriageways, 96km/h (60 mph) on single carriageways and 48km/h (30 mph) in residential areas and areas with street lightning.
  • In England and Wales, the legal alcohol limit is 0.08% for both experienced and novice drivers. Do keep in mind, however, that in Scotland the legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for both experienced and novice drivers. Exceeding the limit can lead to large fines, a suspended license, or even imprisonment.
  • Proof of insurance and the documentation of the car needs to be in it whenever you’re driving.
  • When driving, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The emergency numbers are 999 and 112.

Toll roads

Currently there is only a single toll road in the United Kingdom, the M6 toll. You also have to pay a toll for using a number of bridges and tunnels, as well as for entering the central areas of London and Durham (a city in North East England).

As an alternative to the M6 around Birmingham, the M6toll is a 43km-long (27 miles) portion of the road, also known as the Birmingham North Relief Road (BNRR), that relieves congestion on the M6 itself. There are toll gates where you can pay by either cash or credit card. As of March 2019, the price is £6.40 for using the toll road from Monday to Friday (from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.), £5.30 for using the toll road on Saturday or Sunday (from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.), and £4.10 for using the toll road at night time on any day (from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.). Find out more on the M6 Toll official website

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Manchester. For a long time, Liverpool’s neighbor and rival was one of the most important (and famous) industrial centers in the world. While the city hasn’t forgotten its working class roots, nowadays it is also an important center for the arts, sciences, and innovation. The city’s main attractions are its distinct areas such as the Village, Manchester Chinatown, and the Curry Mile. Located just 54km (34 miles) east of Liverpool, Manchester can be reached in about one hour depending on the traffic.
  • Chester. A picturesque and historic destination, Chester has some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in the British Isles. This is no wonder since the city was founded by the Roman Emperor Vespasian in the 1st century A.D. Some of its landmarks are its impressive city walls, Minerva’s Shrine, and more recent structures such as the 11th-century Church of Saint Michael and the 16th-century Falcon Inn. Located just 43 mi (27km) south of Liverpool, Chester can be reached in about 45 minutes.
  • North Wales. A sparsely populated region where Welsh, a Celtic language, can be heard just as often as English, North Wales is a unique destination. Rightfully famous for its natural beauty that is best observed in places like Snowdonia National Park and Llŷn peninsula, it should also be visited for the quiet and picturesque towns and villages. Bangor, the largest (and according to some, only) city in North Wales is about 116km (72 miles) west of Liverpool and can be reached in less than two hours.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental car in Liverpool is the Ford Fiesta, although many travelers also pick the Toyota IQ and the Fiat 500. The most popular rental car types are economy, mini, and compact.

Further destinations

  • Leeds. The largest city in Yorkshire, Leeds doesn’t get as many visitors as Liverpool, Manchester, and Bristol, but that’s a shame - the city is not only a business and industrial hub, but also a quickly developing center of culture full of great museums, theaters, and eclectic architecture. Many of the best restaurants in the UK can also be found here. About 117km (73 miles) northeast of Liverpool, Leeds can be reached by car in 1 hour and 45 minutes.
  • London. From Big Ben to Buckingham Palace and from Piccadilly Circus to Tower Bridge, there are more world-famous attractions in the capital of the U.K .than it is possible to mention. But the city should also be visited for its distinct areas - seeing Westminster, Soho, and East End on the same day will feel like traveling between different worlds. Located 355km (220 miles) southeast of Liverpool, London is about a five-hour drive away, but the long trip is definitely worth it.
  • Scotland. Whether you decide to take a long walk through picturesque Edinburgh, visit a proper pub in fun and loud Glasgow, or travel to Aberdeen for the northernmost surfing in Europe, Scotland will find ways to surprise and excite. That’s even before mentioning the Scottish Highlands, the northern region made up of majestic summits and deep mountain lakes. Edinburgh, the capital city, is about 355km (220 miles) north of Liverpool and can be reached in four to five hours.
