Liverpool – Anfield

Jump to: HotelsPubsParkingDirectionsStadium ToursFan’s comments

anfieldAnfield is an all seater stadium, with a capacity of 45,500. It is of course home to the famous Liverpool FC.

The legendary Kop terrace has been replaced by a large single-tiered stand. The most recent addition is the Anfield Road Stand, at the opposite end of the ground, some of which is allocated to away supporters.

Notable features of the stadium include gates named after former Liverpool managers, namely the Bob Paisley Gate and the Bill Shankly gate. In addition, a statue of Shankly is situated outside the stadium. Also on Anfield Road is a memorial to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.

How to get to Anfield

By Road:
anfield stadium directionsThe Anfield stadium is located in Anfield Road, Liverpool L4 0TH. Anfield is easily accessible from all major routes into Liverpool. The ground is only 4km from the city centre and 6km from the M62.

Away fans driving from the North should exit the M1 at junction 42, following the M62 towards Manchester, exiting at junction 12 towards M6 / Warrington / Liverpool / Chester. Follow the A5058 (Queens Drive) for some 3 miles, before turning left into Utting Avenue. After ½ mile, bear right to continue on Utting Avenue and Arkles Lane. Anfield Road is about 100 yards further on, on the right.

Fans driving from the South are advised to follow the M6 as far as junction 21a, exiting onto the M62 towards Liverpool / M57 / Warrington / Southport. After some 15 miles, bear right in to Queens Drive. Directions to the ground are then as from the North.

By Rail:
liverpool train stationLiverpool’s main Lime Street station is in excess of 3 miles from the stadium, so probably a little too far to be a comfortable walk for many visiting fans. A better alternative is to get a connection, via Liverpool Central, to Kirkdale or Sandhills station. Sandhills station offers a bus service to Anfield, running approximately 2 hours either side of the game.

Kirkdale station is closer to the ground (within a mile). On exit, turn right across the railway bridge and along Westminster Road. Turn left into Bradwell Street and follow this until reaching County Road. Cross County Road and take the road to the left of the Aldi supermarket, until reaching Walton Lane. Goodison Park is visible on the left. After crossing Walton Lane, continue through Stanley Park, exiting onto Anfield Road near the away end. Click here to check the current train timetables

What have other Away Fans said about their trip to Anfield?

away fans liverpoolThe vast majority of fans have reported a trip to Anfield as a rewarding experience. Many have commented upon it as one of the legendary venues, steeped in footballing history, with the Bill Shankly statue and memorial gates.

The atmosphere within the stadium is reported as being very friendly, and the proximity of the home fans in certain areas gave no feeling of intimidation. The stadium’s facilities are reported adequate. A major complaint from away fans seems to be tickets sold as “restricted view,” as the view of the play is very restricted, especially when those in front stand up.

    Very dissapointed when I visited this ground… Even though we were awful and well beaten had a great time but the lack of atmosphere in anfield from the so called fantastic fans was non existant and the fancilities were very poor (apart from the Scouse Pie, lovely). Outside the ground thing were different and there are many pubs welcomed in away fans with home fans which I thought was fantastic. Its a ground I have alway wanted to visit given its great history but never again!

      There was no atmoshpere as unfortunately nowadays Anfield is full of Foreigners and Wools who only create atmosphere for BIG games (United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton) Villa at home and it being absolutely freezing dont help unfortunately. I agree though the atmosphere has died really apart from the big games

    You can review this ground in one sentance – full of outsiders. enough said. if all the irish, cockneys and other outsiders went and supported there own local teams anfield would be roaring with scousers again and bring back the 70’s atmosphere. Heres a poll result. 97.45% of local liverpool fans would prefer anfield to be empty than have woolybacks from elsewhere in there. GO support ya local team and leave anfield to us

    I went last night for the Liverpool-Stoke City game. Finding the stadium is easy via the M62 and the A5058. There are signs for “football grounds” starting immediately in the A5058 and continuing the entire way. I parked off Townsend Ln right before the median ends and the lanes come together. For 5 quid in a gated lot, I was quite pleased. It’s a bit of a walk to the grounds (about 15 minutes) by either Priory Rd or Walton Breck Rd.

    I was a home/neutral supporter for this match and sat in the Main Stand in one of the restricted view seats. The #3 post was directly in the middle of the north goal, which made it very difficult to see the action at that end. The home fans were very friendly to me, and were all willing to fill an American in on the history of the club and ground, give tips on pubs in the area, tell stories about old matches, etc.

    Everything is cramped in the grounds, though. The main stand concourses are narrow and tight. The food vendors are around corners in areas where queueing is all but impossible. Prices are pretty decent at about £2.50 for a pie and £3.20 for the lager. The stewards were friendly and eager to help me around the stadium. When struggling to get the whole field in a photograph, they recommended a good location to get a shot from.

    Getting out of the area and back to Manchester too forever on the A580 and A5058 as the southbound lanes were jammed with game traffic. Maybe try Oakfield Rd, Shell Rd, and Prescott Rd instead? Prescott Rd pops out at the very end of the M62 so you can shoot right on there to get out of town.

    Exited the coach opposite the Arkles pub, had a quick wander around the area, a fantastic welcome from Liverpool fans milling around, went into Arkles drinking and singing alongside the home fans with a great atmosphere, walked to the food village behind the anfield road end, again eating and drinking with our hosts, Scousers were stopping us on the street and welcoming us to Liverpool, “great touch”, easy entry into ground, stewards were very welcoming and helpful, prices average for a decent pie and a pint, decent view from our seats, Swansea fans were in good voice, a good 0-0 draw with Carrol hitting the bar and Gower missing a great chance for Swans, seems that Liverpool fans struggled to get the famous noise going, both sets of fans applauded each other at the final whistle, once out of the ground and en-route the the coaches Liverpool fans shaking our hands and congratulating us on our performance, fantastic people, great stadium, one of the best away trips i’ve done. Thanks Liverpool Fans!!

    Been to Anfield many times and i have not experienced the friendly home fans described.

    I enjoy Anfield as it is always a good atmosphere when United are there and it is an old traditional ground.

    Best to park on Stanley Park for both Liverpool and everton £8

    In my previous life as a Liverpool fan I’ve been to Anfield many hundreds of times and it was interesting to return after more than 15 years away. We travelled by train and walked from Kirkdale station. Opposite the station, along the railway is the recommended Melrose Abbey pub but these days it’s best avoided. The pub was empty when we entered and and there was no real ale on offer so we walked on… Well, when in Rome and all that. We went into a couple of other pubs along the way but were refused drinks on one occasion my 16-year old nephew was given as the reason and on the other the landlady said they had no beer????!!!! We were pretty sure both were excuses because of our colours. We walked through Stanley Park to Anfield and attracted no interest whatsoever from locals. By the time we got there The Arkles was jammed packed so our plan for a pre-match drink failed miserably. We took a walk around the ground and bought a couple of badges and again attracted no attention from anyone.
    .
    Anfield was buzzing outside but strangely quiet inside. You got the distinct feeling that the Liverpool fans expected to win easily and couldn’t be bothered to sing much. Like they were bored and jaded. Anfield is still a great stadium. The view of the pitch is completely open but crowd could have given it a bit more welly. Liverpool should have won easily but only managed one goal and after Norwich equalised the game could have gone either way. The Norwich support acted as a 12th man and that was always the Kop’s job. We had a pie and a drink inside the ground but it was distinctly average. I’ve had much better at Hartlepool, Scunthorpe and Chesterfield this season. Liverpool might be a Premiership team but the catering is still 1970s Football League.

    Been to the last 4 games at anfield including the fa cup this weekend 28/1/12. Best advice I can give especially to utd fans is park at goodison for £10. There is a pub just round the corner called the spellow or go to crofts social club on city road. (be full of reds) It’s about 2 minute walk from the car park. As for anfield road lower where utd will be stood be prepared for coins/bottles of urine coming over!! What else would you expect from them!! Also the atmosphere is dyer but saying that it’s no different at old trafford and most home grounds now.

    I’ve just been to Anfield, I’ll share my thoughts here.
    Atmosphere was immense, but that’s probably due to the rivalry between two teams. If your club does not have rivalry with Liverpool FC, you might end up disappointed.
    I found legroom shocking. I stood up for 90 minutes but before KO and at HT I felt really uncomfortable (and I’m not even that tall).

    I went to anfield over a month ago, and I could honestly say it was a great away day! I am just a young 14 (13) year old lad,(so you do not have to take me seriously but am telling what I think about Liverpool away) but it was a late night kick off during the christmas holidays and me and my Dad took the car down. It was a 3 hour each way journey, with an addtiontial 20 minutes added when driving past manchester through rush hour, which left us worried for kick off, but after 15 minutes the traffic started moving quickly along the motorway. We took the A1 down, then came off at the M6 then drove from their through to Liverpool. I was wearing a newcastle top and scarf, but had them hidden by a jacket over the top, then took it off as I approached anfield road, but in all honesty that was completley un-nessacery! (spelling mistake) The majority of Liverpool fans are very friendly and “dead canny” people. However a few of them did give us some abuse in the ground, but you will get that with every set of fans. When driving to the ground, we found a social club that was offering £5 to park, in a safe looking carpark with a few other fans. It was about a 15-20 minute walk to the ground, some friendly locals, could obviously tell we were away fans, but none the less gave us directions to the ground and were very helpfull! We managed to find a little burger van that did a burger and drink for about £3:50 just outside the ground, which was very handy. Anfield had a large police presence with many helpfull stewards in the away end. We got into the ground about 40 minutes before kick off, the toilet facilities are very clean and much better than the ones at St. James Park! The concourse was busy, but was big enough for everyone to have enough space to stand and move around abit, with the kiosk refusing to serve alchool but still had top notch catering with many foods and beverages on offer! Overall I would say Liverpool is a great away, I would reccomend it to anyone who likes a good atmopshere and some banter with the home and away fans! However the scouse accent does get annoying after a while!

    Had my first visit to Anfield on Saturday for the Wigan Athletic game. Was disappointed with the view from the away end but found the ground to be OK – decent pint and pie !! Surrounding area leaves a lot to be desired – had a few beers in the Scales pub – decent enough pint although was a bit on the full side. Decent day all in all – made even better with a Wigan win. £7 taxi from Lime street station to Scales pub.

    Not the best away ground it has to be said. Parking was easy enough, found a decent spot very near the ground at the expense of a tenner. The away section is half the lower tier in the Anfield Road end. It is very packed together, not a lot of leg room at all. Got a bang on my knee while celebrating RVP’s first, hit the seat infront. I bought a coke for £2.20 at HT, which isn’t such a bad price compared to the amount we have to cough up at the Grove for a drink. Terraces, like the stands, are very small and the fans are packed in tightly together, but, like the stands this builds for a good atmosphere. The Liverpool fans were atrocious. I don’t have a clue why all the scousers bang on about ‘having the best fans in the world’, i didn’t hear a peep from any of them except from when they went 1-0 up. The stewards were fine, we stood and sung our hearts out all match and they didn’t say anything. I walked out of the ground with colours on and had absolutely no trouble with the Liverpool fans, probably the friendliest fans i’ve ever met on an away trip. Great result though as Van Persie bagged his second and the winner in injury time to send us all mental. Good day in all, although Liverpool could do with getting a new ground, as you can really tell this ones been around for ages.

    Coach up to Stanley Park – easy. Found the people in The Arkles pub fantastic and very friendly once we got in, very busy.
    Sunk a few pints & sang a few songs.
    The food court outside the Anfield Rd end is a terrific idea. No queues & beat the mobs of people trying to get food inside the ground.

    Like some others above, I was disappointed with the atmosphere inside the ground, even though we were being pummelled! but I understand the club is followed by loads of (quiet?) tourists & not full of locals ( I was still bumping into hundreds of them at the Warwick services on my way home).
    No leg room at all if you’re over 6′ tall but we wanted to stand anyway.

    Good day out (bar the result). A real, old traditional stadium steeped in history. Hope to return some day

    been to anfield on several occasions, and in my opinion the stewards are the worst in the league (and i have been to every ground in the league) in the carling cup semi final last year city fans were held outside for 30 minutes whilst the game was on going and this was never explained why, the road the turnstiles are on is very small and minutes before the games ive been to there is often much pushing and shoving, slightly intimidating coming out/ going into the ground as the home and away turnstiles are right next to each other with very little police presence, stewards will hastle you all game to sit down which i have no complaints with but when those infront of you dont, well the stewards dont understand that you cant see. view isnt bad, no atmosphere from home fans that i saw, even when they had scored and were in the carling cup final

    Would have to agree with previous comments about the atmosphere, the wools have ruined it. Like most home ground in the premiership, Anfield isn’t going to produce the atmosphere it once had in years gone by due to early kicks off, people being made to sit down etc. Would recomend away fans on the coaches to visit the flat iron/ arkles pubs, and fans on the train to get there bevy’s at the Crown hotel or the weatherspoons, both are just outside lime street and i’ve seen away fans in there. Taxi’s from town are about 6 quid. Hope that helps

    Went there for the League Cup semi final, second leg, a couple of seasons ago. Due to an accident on the M62, got there just before kick-off. But didn’t get in for over 20 minutes due to the utterly useless coppers and stewards taking their sweet time letting us in.

    The atmosphere from the home fans was brilliant, as was our support, but the view from the Anfield Road stand is shocking. The upper tier is far too low, meaning the rows near the back are tight for headroom and makes it almost impossible to see the far end of the pitch. It’s like watching a widescreen football game on an old telly. And it wasn’t helped by all the people standing up – although I can’t criticise Liverpool for our own fans being selfish berks.

    The home fans are pretty friendly and I didn’t witness any of the issues that others have noticed. Although those who’ve had problems are all United fans, so I guess that’s to be expected.

    I’m from the Wirral so a few scousers will probably be saying do one and go to tranmere but I’m not arsed. The reason for our atmosphere being so bad is due to the amount of foreign fans, such as Norwegians and Malaysians in the ground. Even as a wool I enjoy going in the kop and screaming my head off, but the other stands are a let down. Due to more scousers and true fans going to away games, the atmosphere on away days is class (Man city away losing 2-1 was top notch).

Have you visited Liverpool – Anfield as an away fan?
