We have limited onsite parking available on a first-come, first-served basis. The first 30 minutes are free, after that, you pay for the time your car is in the car park. It is a pay-on-exit system car park.
Before you leave the Liverpool Cathedral car park, please pay at the payment machines. You’ll need to remember your vehicle registration number (number plate).
Enter your vehicle registration number into the payment machine. You can use coins, cards or contactless to pay for your parking.
If you would like to pay by phone, you will find details on the signs by the payment machines. Regularly park in our car park? You might find downloading the app handy.

We usually operate a one-way system to enter and exit our car park. You’ll come into the car park using the Queen’s Walk entrance (Upper Duke Street) and exit via Upper Parliament Street.
Occasionally the Cathedral, or parts of it, may need to close or only offer restricted access for a service, special event or day-to-day maintenance. We try to minimise these periods as much as we can, as we know that people travel long distances to visit us. Please note that closures and restricted access may also affect our car park. We’ve listed some alternative, nearby parking below.
Please remember to check for last-minute changes before your visit as some events, such as funerals, are only arranged at short notice. For up-to-date car parking charges, you can call the Constables’ Lodge.
