Transport links are a major consideration when locating your business. The best-run businesses can still suffer if they are not situated in a place which is easily accessible. Liverpool is particularly blessed with some of best transport networks in England. It is in close proximity to overground trains, buses and airports ensuring that you can reach other destinations quickly when travelling to and from your Liverpool office space.
Travelling by road
Road links to and from Liverpool are direct, ensuring speedy connections. To the east of the city, the M62 motorway connects it with Hull and there are opportunities along this route to divert to other major cities such as Leeds and Manchester. If your clients need to visit you from more distant cities, the M62 offers indirect links to London, Nottingham, Birmingham and Sheffield. If links are needed to the west of Liverpool, the Kingsway and Queensway tunnels connect the city with Birkenhead and Wallasey. From Birkenhead the A41 provides links to Cheshire and Shropshire with the option of continuing to North Wales via the A55. Liverpool is connected to the south via the A562 with Widnes and Warrington. If you occupy serviced offices in Liverpool you can be assured of good road connections to and from the city in all directions.
Road connections are important, but so are air connections in the modern world. Liverpool’s airport, John Lennon, has many direct domestic and European flights. Flights to 68 destinations are on offer including Barcelona, Berlin, Zurich, Rome, Paris, Madrid and Milan. These flights are typically cheap offered by low-cost airlines, notably Easyjet and Ryanair. KLM, the Dutch national airline, provides a service four times daily where passengers are faced with the prospect of flying to 800 destinations globally with KLM via the Dutch airport. Such an assortment of flights makes Liverpool an ideal place in which to search for office space.
Two separate rail networks serve Liverpool. The national network connects Liverpool with major towns and cities throughout England. The mainline station is Lime Street station and it offers connections to London, Manchester, Preston, Leeds, Sheffield, Derby, York, Norwich and Nottingham. Passengers can reach John Lennon airport via Liverpool South Parkway. Businesses occupying office space in Liverpool can rest assured that they are easily reachable by their clients throughout the country.
Liverpool has an extensive bus service being served by many companies including Stagecoach and Arriva. Queen Square Bus Station and Liverpool One Bus Station are the two main terminals for local buses. The former serves destinations north and east of Liverpool and the latter serves those to the south and east. A night bus is in operation and cross river services to the Wirral use terminus points in Sir Thomas Street and Castle Street. These connections are useful for journeys particularly those contained within the city and are an asset for any business owner with office space in Liverpool.
