Dacia Magic Weekend travel guide

Posted: Wednesday 15th May 2019 - 3:57 PM

With plenty to see and do at Anfield, fans are encouraged to enjoy the atmosphere in the Fan Zone, hosted by Rugby AM as well as watch six great games on the iconic Anfield pitch.


Paid matchday car and coach parking is available on Stanley Park on a first come, first served basis.


Fans driving to Anfield are advised that the Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathonis taking place in the city across the same weekend as Dacia Magic Weekend. As such with an event of this type, some road closures and diversions will be in place over the two days. 

Saturday 25 May

There are activities related to the Marathon happening by Albert Docks, there will be minor lane closures, however this is expected to be cleared by 10:30am.

All major road routes into the Stadium from the M62 should remain unaffected.

Sunday 26 May

The route to the Anfield area from M62 via Queens Driveand Uttings Avenueis not affected by the marathon so travel for most visitors will be unaffected. 

Runners are expected to be clear of the Anfield area by around 12:00 noon so impact around the stadium will be limited to those arriving for the Salford Red Devils v Hull KR match.

Road closures to the centre and south of the city will continue until later in the day. 

For those travelling from the city centre, routes via Lime Street and Islington are also unaffected.

To reiterate our advice to access by car on the Sunday - Anfield isn’t accessible from all major routes, fans are encouraged to arrive via the M62 along Queens Drive and Utting Avenue.
