TRAVEL INFORMATION

Due to the planned rail strikes on Thursday 23rd and Saturday 25th June 2022, there will be no rail service running across the Merseyrail network on those days. There will also be knock-on effects to early rail services on Wednesday 22nd and Friday 24th June (full details via Merseyrail). While this makes getting to Future Yard in this period that bit trickier, there are still plenty of other ways of reaching us via public transport.

We’re aware that customers attending Future Yard during this period will be concerned about getting to and from the venue if they have to rely on public transport. So we have looked at the latest information on bus times and taxis – including the last buses to depart to Liverpool and Chester – which we have included below. Hopefully this information will help you plan your journey to and from the venue in advance.

BUS

Future Yard is well served by a bus network, as we are less than a 5-minute walk from Birkenhead Bus Station. Bus services run all day from here to Liverpool, Chester and right across Wirral. There are also various other stops around Birkenhead town centre, and Woodside Bus Terminal. But due to the proximity of Birkenhead Bus Station, we recommend using that primarily. You can see full bus timetables via Merseytravel and plan your journey in advance.
