Find us by Car:

We are easily accessed by car just off the A5027 (Upton Road / Park Road North). We are a 10-minute drive from Liverpool City Centre and less than five minutes from the Queensway Tunnel exit.

There is free parking available on the College Campus. Parking spaces are limited, however, although street parking is also available nearby.


Find us by Bus:

Subsidised Bus Service: The College has plans to offer a subsidised bus route from several Liverpool areas to our campus in Claughton. This service is subject to demand and the exact route will be determined based on student location - please register your interest in our subsidised bus services here.

Commercial Bus Routes:  There are a number of cross-river buses that run regularly between Liverpool and Birkenhead.

Running every 10-15 minutes, bus number 437 picks up from multiple city centre locations and stops right outside the College in a journey lasting around 20 minutes.

The latest timetables for available commercial routes can be accessed via the Merseytravel website, with further information on ticket prices and travel passes. We recommend using the Merseytravel Journey Planner, provided by Travelineꜝ to help you find the fastest route to College from your home.


Find us by Rail:

Our nearest rail station is Birkenhead Park - just a 10-12 minute walk through or around the park itself to College. Frequent Wirral Line trains travel from the Liverpool loop towards West Kirby or New Brighton, and Birkenhead Park Station is just the third stop from James Street on this route. Conway Park is the stop prior to Birkenhead Park and located next to Birkenhead Bus Station, which offers many services towards Claughton if the bus is preferable to walking.
