Liverpool Lime Street Station

Jennifer

Liverpool Lime Street is the largest railway station in Liverpool, has an approximate annual footfall of 11.5 million and is still covered by vast iron and glass roofs dating from the 1880s. Toilets, booking offices, shops, a left-luggage office, taxi ranks and coffee bars are amongst the facilities provided.

In line with Liverpool’s role as European Capital of Culture in 2008, and the city’s 800th anniversary in 2007, the station and its surroundings received a £35 million redevelopment. The Lime Street Gateway Project saw the retail parade and office block in front of the station demolished, and an improved frontage and public plaza built. The main concourse features a pair of statues of famous Liverpudlians Ken Dodd and Bessie Braddock, a work entitled “Chance Meeting” by sculptor Tom Murphy, unveiled by Ken Dodd in June 2009.
