Travel and accommodation information for EMB4

The meeting will be held in Seminar Room 4 (1st floor) of the Management School, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, 17-18 May 2006. For location, see http://www.liv.ac.uk/maps/precinctplan.pdf. The Management School is building 72 on the map (south east end of the campus, top right quadrant of the map).

Getting there

Liverpool John Lennon airport is a 45 minute bus ride from the city centre
Manchester airport is approximately 90 minutes away from Liverpool city centre by train.

You can check train times and also book tickets at http://www.thetrainline.com/ or buy a ticket on arrival. The stations are Manchester Airport and Liverpool Lime Street (this is the main station).

For taxis from Manchester airport you might want to try http://www.airportcarz.co.uk/ (it's 89 euros to Liverpool city centre so if you can arrange to share a taxi with others coming to the meeting it may work out cost effective).

Anyone arriving by car will need a car parking permit: please inform Andy Morse (A.P.Morse at liv.ac.uk) if you require a parking permit.
