Travelling to our Liverpool Office
We understand the difficulties of having to find a car park space or bus stop in the surrounding areas of our Liverpool-based office, especially if it’s your first time visiting us.
Our opening hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you’re travelling to our Liverpool office by car, we recommend making use of the free car park nearby. Located at Walton Hall Park, the nearest free car park is a 31-minute walk or 22-minute bus journey away from our office.
Public Transport to Our Liverpool Office
We’re lucky enough to be located just a stone’s throw away from the Orrell Park Station bus stops (A, B, C, D, and E) on Walton Vale. If you’re travelling via public transport, you can get to us by using bus numbers 20, 21, 61, 61A, 62, 135, 214, 300, 310, 345, 721, 741, and 835.
If you’re travelling to us by train, you’ll be glad to know that our office is only a 4-minute walk away from Orrell Park railway station (northern line to Ormskirk). For individuals travelling on the northern line to Kirkby, Rice Lane railway station is just a 9-minute walk away. Orrell Park station is wheelchair accessible; however, Rice Lane station is not.
