How to find us

Liverpool has good transport links, making it easy to visit us.

Continue past Edge Lane retail park and follow signs for Cathedrals and University, taking the left hand lane and turning left at the top of the hill. Take the right hand lane and keep right, around the bend, down the hill and straight ahead at the next lights with the University of Liverpool Sherrington Building ahead on the left and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital (RLUH) ahead on the right. Continue straight ahead, through a pedestrian crossing adjacent to Liverpool University Dental School. After the next set of traffic lights, the LSTM buildings will be seen on your left immediately after Brownlow Street, where there is short stay, pay on exit visitor car park. The RLUH multi-storey Q-Park facility is located in Epworth Street, opposite the hospital, a five minute walk from reception.

From Edge Lane, follow signs for City Centre rather than University and pick up signs for Hospital parking from Hall Lane. Exit on foot, turning right down Prescot Street, then left at the crossroads into Daulby Street. Turn right at the top and LSTM will be on your left.
