The Cathedral is a short walk from the heart of the city centre, up a slight hill, Mount Pleasant, and then turn right onto Hope Street. Continue along Hope Street until the junction with Upper Duke Street. Turn right (down the hill), and the Cathedral main driveway and pedestrian entrance can be found approx 200 yards on your left. Alternatively, walk along Renshaw Street (look for the former old, grand, Lewis's Department Store on the corner, the name is still on the building, or the Adelphi Hotel just a little before Renshaw Street commences) and then turn right into Berry Street - look for bomb damaged church, St Luke's, on the corner. Continue to follow signs for Liverpool Cathedral along Berry Street. Turn left into Upper Duke Street. The main pedestrian entrance is approx 200 yards uphill on the right. If walking from the Albert Dock, walk towards Hanover Street, turn right into Duke Street and then continue on into Upper Duke Street. This is also an uphill walk.
The Cathedral provides secure/anchored cycle racks so why not take advantage and keep yourself fit as well as helping to improve your carbon footprint by cycling to the cathedral whether individually, as a family, with a group of friends or with your local cycling organisation. Simply ask at the Constable's /Security lodge on the main Cathedral access road off Upper Duke Street on arrival and you will be directed to the cycle racks. Many of the Liverpool city streets and roads are cycle friendly with lanes and crossing points clearly marked. Just visiting the city? - Well - You can even hire a cycle if you wish to enjoy the frredom to explore and the fresh air rather than using public transport
