GETTING TO AND FROM LIVERPOOL

Liverpool is well connected by air, rail and road.

You can fly to Liverpool John Lennon airport which is only 9 miles from Albert Dock. Alternatively, you can fly to Manchester Airport, which is a 45-minute drive from Albert Dock and has a regular coach service available.

London Midland Trains, Transpennine Express and Northern Rail run routes into Liverpool from all major UK cities. Additionally, you can now take a Virgin Train from Central London to Liverpool in 2 hours 13 minutes.

If you wish to travel by road, Liverpool is served by many National Express coaches from London and Manchester, and is connected to the M58 and M62 Motorways. To cross the Mersey, you could also take one of the historic Mersey Tunnels, which are unique in that they are policed by their own dedicated police force!

VISITING LIVERPOOL

Liverpool is a thriving dynamic city – most famous for its football club and its university – but also an important city in the sailing world. Liverpool has many historical links to sailing and the sea, and today it is the hub for tall ships in the North-West of England.

While in the city you should definitely check out the world-famous Cavern Club (where the Beatles started playing) and shop ‘til you drop at the newly refurbished Liverpool ONE shopping centre. For food, we would recommend trying ‘Scouse’, a local dish popular with sailors that is based on the food of the Vikings!

A key Liverpool location is the amazing Albert Dock. The dock is stuffed full of culture and history and famous for its Victorian architecture. While you are there you should visit the award winning Maritime Museum and the TATE Liverpool gallery. If you fancy some retail therapy or a cuppa after all that culture, the docks are also a brilliant place to find cool quirky shops and cafes.

The docklands are still operational, which is awesome! The docks are where all the Tall Ships moor up when they visit the city, and you’ll likely be spending a lot of time in this area, as it is where trainees and crew board and disembark. Every year the city hosts the International Mersey River Festival on the dockside– with hundreds of boats visiting the docks, live music and lots of attractions.

Fantastically, the culture and heritage gurus at both the UN and the EU agree that Liverpool has a lot to offer and is worthy of international recognition. In 2004 Liverpool's waterfront was awarded UNESCO World Heritage site status and the in 2008 the city was named European Capital of Culture.

We think Liverpool is a fab place to visit as well as a fab place for sailing. Whether you are in search of an awesome night out, fantastic shops, world leading museums/ galleries or simply a hearty supper the city really has something for everyone.

Thinking about sailing aboard Lord Nelson?

This ship is great for those who love working co-operatively with people from all walks of life and want to be a part of an award winning structured training programme. Whether you have never sailed before, or are a seasoned old salt, Lord Nelson can offer a truly unique, supportive environment.

Lord Nelson is one of the UK’s best known tall ships and one of the only ones in the world that is completely accessible for people of all physical abilities. The ship and her crew strive to make sail training accessible to all people, showing that anybody can sail aboard a tall ship.

The ship has gone from strength to strength in recent years, completing a two-year voyage around the world and winning ASTO’s 'sail training ship of the year award' in 2014. She typically takes aboard 40 trainees, divided into watches of 10 trainees.

As a Lord Nelson trainee, you would be put into pairs through a unique buddy system – you would be paired up with another trainee, and you would learn to sail together – building a lasting friendship and supporting each other. Together you would steer at the helm, navigate by the stars, cook in the galley, climb the rigging and maintain the ship.

After you have finished your watches for the day, you will get plenty of opportunities to relax with your new crewmates and friends. There is a bar and library aboard, a mess room where you can chat and play games and a full galley serving delicious meals three times a day.

Most trainees sleep in comfy bunks in the forecastle, while there are eight cabins in the middle of the ship for wheelchair users and their buddies. Blankets and duvets are provided and each bunk has a privacy curtain.

Lord Nelson is well equipped for day to day living, and has accessible toilets and showers aboard. She has full air-conditioning/ heating throughout, and European style 240V plugs to charge phones/devices.
