Visa Information

Check if you need a visa to travel to the UK.



It is possible that restrictions may still be in place in July for travel between countries affected by the COVID-19 virus. While we are hopeful that situation will be resolved in the months between now and the conference, delegates should liaise with their own university / business travel managers to consider what effect this may have on their plans and how best to mitigate risks of travel disruption.


Please consult the UK Government travel advice if you are in an affected area with implications for visiting the UK.


Arriving in to Manchester Airport

We envisage that most people traveling by air will arrive into Manchester International Airport (MAN). From there there is a direct train to Liverpool Lime Street though some will require a change in Manchester City Centre (at the same station). The first train is 05:07 and the last train is at 22:49 on weekdays. Booking in advance can often save money but may restrict you to a specific time of train. You can also buy tickets at the station using the ticket kiosk or ticket machines. is a reputable website for booking tickets.
