Goodison Park in Liverpool is home to Everton Football Club, and has an all-seated capacity of 40,569. Widely considered the first proper football stadium in Britain, Goodison Park opened in 1892, and has experienced regular updating and construction work, with the Taylor report seeing the ground being made all-seater to comply with regulations in the early 1990s.

As befitting a ground of the historical stature of Goodison Park, there are tours available four days a week and they go all over the ground, from the changing rooms to the dugouts. Booking is advisable and can be done through the website. Away fans can be expected to be housed in a corner of the Bullens Road stand, and there are the normal facilities down there. A "proper" football ground, Goodison gives any football fan an experience to remember.

Getting To Goodison Park

Situated three miles north of Liverpool city centre, Goodison is easily reached by public transport. Liverpool Lime Street station is the closest British Rail station whilst the closest Merseyrail station is Kirkdale, on the northern line, which is around a mile away from the ground. Liverpool Lime Street is a good place to get to if you are planning on staying in a Goodison Park hotel closer to Liverpool city centre. Buses run frequently from the city centre, and services 1, 2, 20, 19, 311, 345 and 350 go to Goodison Park. Also, on home match days, the Soccerbus runs from Sandhills station and for an extra £1 on the rail fare you get a direct bus to Goodison.

As with travel to any busy football ground, public transport is highly recommended. However, if you are travelling by car, there is parking in Stanley Park, approximately a half-mile from Goodison itself. If coming by car, it is sensible to use either a good route planner or satellite navigation, and to help with this the postcode for Goodison is L4 4EL. There is also ample provision for disabled parking closer to the ground, if in possession of a valid disabled parking badge.
