The Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool is a landmark regeneration project which was completed in 2008 and is situated in the heart of Liverpool on the historic, world heritage waterfront next to the famous grade one listed Albert Dock.

Designed by the award winning architects Wilkinson Eyre and costing £146 million, ACC Liverpool is one of the most sustainable venues in Europe - designed to produce half the CO2 emissions of traditional buildings the same size.


With the success of European Capital of Culture for Liverpool in 2008 Liverpool has shown the world the best of its creative thinking and its wonderful cultural attractions. This is more than just a city with a big reputation - It's the centre of a vast area of beauty, culture and entertainment that deserves exploration. Many of the attractions on offer represent great value or are even free.


Liverpool boasts a variety of shopping facilities and restaurants to cater for all tastes and budgets. The architecture is world-class, with more listed buildings than any city outside London. The heart of the city and its waterfront sit proudly alongside treasures like the Taj Mahal and Pyramids at Giza as a World Heritage Site.

The Arena and Convention Centre is well-served by local transport links and with a wide range of shops, hotels, restaurants and bars both on site and within easy walking distance of the complex. Frequent access to Monarchs Quay is available via the public transport network and the expansion of Liverpool John Lennon Airport – the fastest growing airport in the UK – offers a wide range of national and international air links. Manchester International Airport is also only a short drive away.

There is a 1600 space car park available on site and all parts of the city centre are within easy walking distance, including Lime Street station. Lime Street operates all main line services across the UK including hourly London services.
